This last one’s heartwarming twist ending really brings truth to the old saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover”.
“So I had a neighbor (80yo or more) widowed guy.
Every time I get the newspaper delivered to my mailbox, when I open it, I find the crosswords done (I don’t do them or give a damn).
One day I decided to try to catch who’s doing my crosswords.
Day 1: 8 am, they were already done.
Day 2 : 7:30 am already done.
Day 3: 7am I decide to give up.
One day, 4am, I was getting back home from a night out, while I was passing by the mailbox ; nothing yet delivered, so I place my GoPro inside and went sleeping, the next day ; FINALLY GOT IT, it was my neighbor, he has done the crosswords right up on my mailbox, for like 10min (I will try to find the video, but it was absolutely cute, staring at my door time to time, and scratching his head). Next day: I took him a 1000 crosswords book, drop it right his door, rang the bell and stayed on my car discretely. He took some time to open the door, then found it, I swear it was the happiest person like a kid that got a puppy. He stayed in his porch and passed like 2 hours doing crosswords then fell asleep lol.
The next day: I was getting back home from work, he came to apologize (like a kid that has to confess something) and brought some cookies. We stayed talking about his WW2 service and how the world changed.
I frequently bought him crosswords books, until he passed away 1 year ago…
May he Rest In Peace.”
