"Hope you don't mind I used it for awhile. But – now I'm 21 so you can have it back!"

She told BuzzFeed News she has lost her ID three times in just the last year.

"I usually just go out with my ID, debit card, and lip gloss in my jacket pocket. No purse, no wallet. Bad habit," she said.

Found this on the floor of a bar about a year ago. Hope you don't mind I used it for awhile. But – now I'm 21 so you can have it back! Thanks! 😀❤️

"When the ID slipped out I was confused because I had forgotten about the situation," she said. "I did think for a second I might have been pranked but after asking around I put the pieces together."

She said she thought the note was "hilarious" and "so sweet." She said she figures the sender is a college student in Albany, because that's where it was stamped.

"I'm sure that ID saw some good times...if only it could speak," she said. "I hope this mystery girl enjoyed her time as Christina, I only wish she would have sent the $10 it took to replace. Just kidding...kinda."

She added that she will use her returned license as a back-up.

"I'm bound to lose it again!" she said.
