A man who lost his wallet was surprised when the person who found it returned almost everything inside.

Reilly Flaherty lost his wallet at a concert in New York. He went through the hassle of replacing his credit cards and drivers' license, assuming they were gone for good.

Two weeks later, he received an envelope containing his license and credit cards. There was also a note inside explaining why the other items were not returned.

The letter said the person kept the wallet because they liked it. Flaherty posted the letter to Instagram where it's now gone viral.

He said, "The note was basically . . . I'm a good guy, but I'm also kind of giving you the middle finger, and I'm keeping everything that has any currency behind it. This is something my friends and I have laughed about quite a bit."

Managers at the concert hall where Flaherty lost his wallet heard about the incident and have offered him free tickets to an upcoming show.
