To my neighbor the Thief: I Surrender
A resident of Qingdao, Shandong, became so exasperated with whoever was stealing his daily newspaper that he offered to buy a one-year subscription for the culprit on Sunday.
The resident, surnamed Qing, has lived in his apartment for six years and has good relations with his neighbors. However, one day during Spring Festival, Qing found that his mailbox had been forced open and the newspaper in it was gone. Qing did not think that anything was amiss and fixed the mailbox immediately.
However, the next day he discovered that his mailbox had been smashed open once again. The situation has repeated several times. With no other solutions in mind, Qing left a message on the mailbox saying he would buy the newspaper for the thief if it really meant that much to him or her.
