A Message To A Thief

Siguro hindi lang sa akin nangyayari ang manakawan nang sulat. A snail mail I mean. I sent my father a small package last month containing medicines , vitamins, several pictures of my kids and a couple of lipstick for my mother. I sent it via airmail para madali.

I called my parents after 2 weeks para itanong kong natanggap na nila ito but then they said not yet. My father told me it might need another week bago ito makakarating sa kanila dahil mabagal ang post office sa Pilipinas. I have waited for another 2 weeks bago ako tumawag ulit, the comment was the same…hindi pa dumating. My parents decided to go to the post office in order to ask about the said package. Well, sa madaling salita ito ay nawala! Nawala dahil ninakaw.
It’s so disgusting na talaga dahil ilang beses na akong ninakawan ng sulat at package.

Yesterday, I sent a pack of pictures again to my parents and I wrote a short message on the envelop that says:

“Dear Thief, I would like to tell you upfront that there is no money inside this envelop. Just incase you are still curious and is eager to know if I’m telling the truth, ok feel free to have a peep inside. But please be kind to close this letter again and forward it to the recipient.”

Respectfully yours,

Hmm, babasahin kaya yon nang kumag na magnanakaw? I wish to know how he or she would react. I know I sound stupid, but what the heck! Just want to express my anger! Grrr.


Beng Hafner is my name. Well, most of you know that already. I am a mother of 3 and a granny of 3 cute kids. I am proud to be who I am and I am proud of the way I am. I am alive because I have a lot to live for. I have many dreams that I wish to reach for and I have many journeys to make. My life is like a soap opera, and you are the audience.
