A small act of kindness has now gone viral, after an anonymous woman sent a touching thank you card to some baristas.
A guy on Reddit posted the thank you note, saying that he'd given the woman her coffee for free when she arrived at the coffee shop looking upset last week.
Two days later she left a thank you note for the staff. She wrote, 'Imagine finding out that your boyfriend has a massively pregnant wife that you knew nothing about. Imagine getting zero hours of sleep because you know you have to work with him and see his stupid, cheating, lying, stupid, freaking face - all day. You probably just want some coffee to get you through that, right?'
She wrote, 'Now imagine going to your favorite coffee spot, ordering your favorite drink, having the team listen to your stupid problems, tell you that you're sure as s*** too good for f***boys like that, make sure that your drink is the best damn white coffee kicker you've ever had, then tell you it's free.'
She said, 'I ugly cried the whole way to work. That was literally the most you could have done for me and I am so grateful for your kindness. I'm sorry I busted out in tears when you were nice to me. Please accept this seed paper as an apology and grow love with it.'
The post received 40,000 upvotes and got thousands of comments. One person commented: 'Wow, that's really special...Whenever you perform an act of kindness, however small, you never know how much it might affect other people.'
