That's both extremely sad and very funny at the same time.
Appealing to the decency & honesty of a bunch of thieves doesn't seem like a great business strategy.

On the bright side, the business owner has now learnt the importance of keeping back-ups of important data.

And perhaps neither does telling them all about the location of your data.
Though they'd probably have had a look anyway.

I haven't decided...
That is either very Buddhist and accepting harsh realities or very Christian and turning the the other cheek.

Re: I haven't decided...
I think it's more Buddhist. There's a fairly resigned vibe from it.

Well, if you don't ask, you don't get. So they might as well ask. I probably would too. Wouldn't word the note in the same way though.

I've seen a few of the similar notes crop up in places, like say elevators

(During Sanctions) "To whoever keeps stealing the toilet paper from the office loo, you are a low piece of scum"

"Please whoever stole my wallet from me in this elevator would you return it to the reception desk; i don't care about the money I just want the documents"

That one was by far the most courteous note I've ever come across though. Gotta love stuff beginning with "Dear Thieves"

Now I feel guilty. I'm not sure why.

Have you been masterminding a crime spree executed by Amy?
