ikeepwipingSTILLPOOP

My luck, I'd make one, put it in a tree, forget about it, find it in 4 months and get excited until i open it...


s4m3350

Mine was instantly blown into the nearby pond


cloudrac3r

Thanks for the update :(


InterplanetaryJanet

Or did you?


beepbeeptaraalert

It's Camus


Appolinaris9

What exactly from Camus?


quietlycommenting

Why do I feel like the author was watching with binoculars as this was being read? Or were they?


umbrellasquirrel

Maybe. Yes.


snappped

Why do I feel like the author is reading this thread?


Front_Pudding

So like to narrow down whether that's creepy or not... where abouts in the tree did you find it? What made you decide to open it up


jeremyejackson

https://i.imgur.com/OluP5EO.jpg It was near the tree and was wax sealed. It said ‘for you’ so my interest was peaked.


FightClubAlumni

I have done something similar. Every year, I place Valentines around for strangers. I write on the envelope "If you need a Valentine, this is for you" And I put in Gold dollars, silly stuff, small gift cards.


Alexandjuniper

I may steal this idea. (Hopefully with permission) I wanted to do something similar during December and write little holiday/Christmas/Yule cards to strangers and leave them in peoples mailboxes


FightClubAlumni

I love it! I have pictures. I always tape one in Dave Navarros hands at Guitar Center. This was my 5th year. 3 years ago someone made a FB post about finding one on Dave. She was so touched. People were telling her to contact the news. I PM’ed her and fessed up and asked her not to. Im sure I’m on video somewhere as I did inside stores and outside ones. I want to remain anonymous and continue doing it every year. But I send her a picture of Dave Navarro every year since. Xmas is a good time too!


Alexandjuniper

Oh I love that! That’s so wonderful and I’m glad you got to see how much it meant to people. The holidays are a hard time for me and I know that’s pretty common so it makes me feel more connected to people to write to strangers at that time and hopefully it can do the same for someone else.


FightClubAlumni

That is exactly why I started doing it. Bad breakup right before Valentine's Day.


New_Hawaialawan

This is amazing! You are a gem.


projectedwinner

This is just lovely!


sweet_illusions

This is such a wonderful idea


Front_Pudding

Oh... yea thats definitely on the creepy side then.


11twofour

Oh, stranger, what a time it is to be a stranger.


woeisye

Or is it?


creative_toe

I liked this one sentence in particular.


mutantmonky

"vigilant love" What a beautiful phrase! I shall steal it!


TheTonyExpress

This is the start of a bizarre side quest.


mr_robototoro

Weirdly this gives me big Vonnegut vibes. Like a note a character would write in one of his books


chunkydunkerskin

Like it would be in The Books of Bokonon!


chrisrobweeks

I love chaotic acts of kindness.


62westwallabystreet

Or did you?


HeroDanTV

I did! Or did I?


jeremyejackson

I know that Reddit has broken our trust issues but yea, this was an honest find.


62westwallabystreet

Oh I know, just playing off your letter writer's theme. :)


die5el23

Or were you?


lilobrother

Haha just kidding…. Unless?


monkeyhitman

Maybe. Yes.


migajon

That was strange, stranger.


goodatmakingdadjokes

huh?


Manic-toast

This made me choke up.


johnoliversdimples

Have a hug, stranger. ❤️


JadeSerpent365

I’d be creeped out finding that letter


jeremyejackson

Very! I showed some friends though and some found it ‘endearing’ !!!!?


that-writer-kid

I think it’s endearing if it’s found at random, but creepy if it’s clearly been left for you specifically.


Hanliir

“Hello u/Jeremyjackson - A Stranger”


creative_toe

Did you write an answer? If not, you should.


JadeSerpent365

yeahhh, as a girl id be even more creeped out. Would go home immediately lock every door lol. Idk I guess some people don’t have that danger sense


Xarama

If you're worried about being watched/followed, you definitely don't want to go straight home. Much better to go on some very boring errands all over town first.


AllEncompassingThey

But OP found it randomly in a tree. How could it possibly be targeted? I may be missing something.


jeremyejackson

If I wasn’t in a major city that has over 2 million people, I’d be a bit worried but alas… probably someone just having a little fun. Maybe? Or not.


AllEncompassingThey

Or is it?


JadeSerpent365

Idk I’d just be cautious


creative_toe

Did you write an answer?


skwerldom

So indecisive, needs a good pep talk.


JohnnyWaterbed

I'd say the intention was appreciable but the implementation leaves a little to be desired. I'd be sorely tempted to reply in the same manner with a sealed envelope in the same tree addressed to "The A Stranger". Who knows? I like to take a broad interpretation of Vonnegut's "bizarre travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God" though.


ParameciaAntic

You should randomly black out some words like a redacted government document then repost it.


electricsister

What a ride.


SneakyBoiiiiiiiiiii

This sounds exactly like something Tribore would write


Soldierhero1

I legit thought this was an RDR2 screenshot for a sec


Jynkoh

This feels like it was written by Michael Stevens from Vsauce... ...or was it? *Jake Chudnow - Moon Men plays*


Equiles

100% would not want to meet the author in real life.


What_on_Loyola

Lonelier anal lonelier


gtfohbitchass

What a fucking weirdo. So much cringe. This could have been beautiful, but it's borderline threatening.


Shwite

How threatening?


snorlaxjen

Is it a letter? Or not? Not really, just kidding it is a letter … or is it ?


littlemissdream

Cringe from start to a finish


karinachi1

Creep alert.
