A Kind Stranger Leaves Cash And A Touching Note After Overhearing A Woman's Phone Conversation
November 29, 2015
A student was left overwhelmed by the kindness of a stranger who overheard her phone conversation with a counselor about the pressures of college deadlines.
Charlotte Rose Ford, a student at the University of Manchester, was discussing the £20 cost to obtain a doctor's letter so she could get a mitigating circumstances form in relation to her university work.
After ending the call in tears, Charlotte, who was sitting at a table in the university's student union at the time, was presented with a coffee, a touching note, and two crumpled £10 notes tucked down in the cup's cardboard sleeve.
The note read:
"I hope you don't mind that I overheard. Just wanted to say don't worry! I've been there, I thought I wouldn't get through my undergrad & now I'm doing a PhD! This is for the doctor's note. You'll get through it!"
Charlotte documented the incident in a Facebook post. She said the story "just shows that there are really good people in the world" who are "full of kindness."
"I don't know who it was that sent it to me but if they read this I want to thank them so much because they completely made my day and made me feel so much better; as well as completely baffled by how kind strangers can be!"
