  1. Or, someone with the exact same make and model took another’s car in error, realized it afterward and put it back without saying a word due to embarrassment.

    • I’m thinking two things:
      1) Lakewood has GOT to start locking their car doors. I’m not sure how it became normal to not do it. Boro Park seems to have this issue also.
      2) Even if the door was unlocked though, and the person thought it was theirs because of what you’ve mentioned, how did they get the car to start without the appropriate key..

  2. I don’t know for sure, but maybe Hashem is sending all of us a hint through this story that we all should try our best to daven for all those individuals that fell between the cracks.
