This is a reminder that you should always be your best self – you never know who’s listening.
This story comes to us from Facebook, where a young lady known as Michelle In The Middle overheard a conversation by two teens in a local Starbucks, and the conversation went sour.
Instead of Michelle ignoring it like most of us would do, she got a pen and paper and did something about it.
Here’s her story:
Here’s the transcript:
I left and went to do my grocery shopping, conflicted the whole time, and I could see the girls still sitting in Starbucks as I drove home. I ran into my house, grabbed a note card and wrote a quick, heartfelt note.
Then I ordered three mini frappucinos on my mobile app and headed back up to Starbucks. They were still there. I walked up to them and said, “Hi Girls. You don’t know me but it looks like you’re here studying and I wrote you a note of encouragement.” I handed them the card and walked away. (The drinks weren’t ready but the barista agreed to delivering them for me.)
I have terrible handwriting so if you can’t make it out:
I sat near you today in Starbucks and listened as you talked. You three are obviously pretty and hard-working. I wish your kindness matched your pretty exteriors. I heard you talk about a girl who sang a song about being lonely in the talent show – and you laughed. About a girl who couldn’t be lead singer because you got all the votes, about crappy presents other people have given you…and you sounded so mean and petty.
You are smart and you are pretty. It would take nothing from you to also be kind. – M.”
