Redditor burritobattlefield posted an image of a Christmas card they found on the train and reassembled. It's a very sad, touching message, especially all torn up as though the recipient couldn't bear to read it or, conversely, the sender never had the balls to put it in the mailbox. But the poignancy is somewhat undercut by it being posted by someone named "burrito battlefield."

Happy Christmas, ya drunk.

The card reads:

Bad things happen to good people sometimes, but how you react to these things is what defines you. You always have a choice, there are better things ahead for you but it's in your hands, it's your responsibility. Have a happy Christmas. Ps. Stop drinking, get help from someone.

There's a lot of speculation on the thread about the card, especially because it's not signed with a name. People are arguing back and forth about whether the person sending a message or receiving a message like that would be most likely to tear it up. A lot of people think it's fake. But the best breakdown of our imaginary protagonist's identity comes courtesy of Redditor HolycommentMattman (wow, these names):

Great psychological profile, Sherlock. With the collective mind of Reddit on the case, someone very special will be confronting their alcoholism by New Year's Eve at the latest.
