Illinois Guy Wants To Give ‘Grass Cutting Money’ Back To Cute Kid

A Moline, Illinois man is looking for a kid who left a surprising and heartfelt apology and some cash to fix a truck he thought he damaged.

The anonymous letter reads:

“Mister I want to say I’m sorry my friends and I were running across the street where your truck was parked and my friend pushed me into your truck and I scratched your truck with my skateboard.”

The letter was sent to Zelnio Construction at 1511 46th Ave #2 in Moline, along with $40 of the kids “grass cutting money” to cover the trucks insurance deductible saying “My Dad said his had a hundred dollar payment for things like this.”

The note also says the kid “will send some more next week” when he finishes “some more yards.”

According to WQAD, the owner of Zelnio Construction, John Zelnio says “his truck is not damaged” and wants to give the money back to the kid.

However, Zelnio has yet to find the kind young kid who left the cash but he hopes to soon.
