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.
via FacebookCharlotte 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.”
