It turns out Goodman still feels really, really bad about this crime.

Goodman took the opportunity to finally seek forgiveness from Soffel, telling him in a Facebook comment that he has "never forgotten the incident or your name" and that it has "sort of haunted me a bit throughout my life."

"Here I am on fb. reading about my favorite bagel store in the world closing down, & who's name do I see but yours & your quote about 2 salt bagels & the Dublin house (which I used to go to all the time, & get 1 onion & 1 salt bagel & eat it at the Dublin back in the day!) & my brain was blown! Finally I can say ~ I"M VERY SORRY that you had to go through that crap that day long ago, I wish it had never happened but it did."
