Cafe Katja is pissed, but passively so

Apparently, some klepto yanked a small table from outside Cafe Katja. The restaurant is obviously not pleased, and penned this rather subdued little note to the thief. It’s posted to some of the light poles near the Orchard Street entrance.

The gist of the letter is, basically, don’t fuck with Katja.

Attention Table Thief

Hey, we all do silly things sometimes, we understand but…

Cafe Katja has hi-definition surveillance footage of you taking one of our tables on Thursday from outside the restaurant, March 21 at 12:25 am. We have taped footage and still photos of you looking through the window in the restaurant. We also have footage of your friend walking with you south on Orchard Street. You are a young woman with long hair and were wearing jeans and a mid-length coat. We clearly saw your face.

Please leave the table outside the restaurant by March 29 and we won’t actively pursue a search for you. If you don’t return it, we will eventually bump into you. It’s a small neighborhood and we’re giving you a grace period before we post your pictures.

Please return our property and let’s put this behind us.

Thank you,

Cafe Katja
