Having your phone stolen is pretty damn annoying, but having the thief then text your brother asking them for the phone’s password is another level of infuriating. That’s precisely what happened to somebody who goes by the name of thelowflyingowl recently, but as you can see from the hilarious exchange that ensued, they decided to take the opportunity to mercilessly troll the thief in the most hilarious way.

“So yesterday I get this text from a strange number,” they wrote. “I give my sister a quick call to make sure it is not her and effectively realize someone is fishing through her contacts or documents to get her password.” We’re not sure how the thief managed to access the phone owner’s contact list without the password, but we know that certain apps allow you to add emergency contacts to your phone’s lock screen. “I was bored so I say to myself, why not have some fun. We will never get the phone back, but what the heck, might as well kill some time.” Scroll down to see how the funny conversation unfolded.
