Crime doesn't pay, but manners might.

Have you ever deeply regretted something you've done, hoping that if you could somehow reverse your actions, you would? These ten thieves were afraid of karma catching up to them, so they tried to make it up to their victims the only way they knew how: by leaving a note.

Then again, Santa has a history of break-and-enters so he's hardly one to judge.
