Over Halloween weekend there were plenty of treats being passed around. However a freshman at Kansas State University received a rather nasty trick – over his treat. Hunter Jobbins, a 19-year old freshman didn’t even bother to lock up his Toyota Camry when he ran back into his dormitory to drop off some laundry. He was so confident that nothing could possibly happen on a nice autumn Sunday in Kansas for the fifteen minutes he would be inside. Sadly this was not the case.
This has nothing to do with this story.
When Hunter returned to his car he knew something was missing. Back in the day real men would steal stereos out of cars. Now millennials steal KitKats. The chocolate covered wafer he was saving in the cup holder of his car was missing and in its place was a note. Judging from the shaky handwriting, apparently the KitKat was stolen by a cartoon dog attempting to write words like a human.
In case you couldn’t make that out, the note said:
“Saw Kit-Kat in your cup holder. I love Kit-Kats so I checked your door and it was unlocked. Did not take anything other than the Kit-Kat. I am sorry and hungry.”
Hunter Tweeted the note which quickly went viral, getting re-Tweeted over182K times. Eventually the story made its way to the people at Hershey who replaced his stolen KitKat by sending him 6,500 KitKats. Cool story, bro. By the way someone totally stole a dollar out of the front seat of my car…
Good guy Hunter filled his car with the bars and drove around campus offering up the chocolate treats to students. So while the Kitkat culprit was never identified, perhaps Hunter accidently gave the thief a SECOND Kitkat! Oh the humanity.
