Restaurant leaves kind words for heartbroken customer

After her breakup, this woman received some inspiring words—on her takeout box.

Reddit user Icanteven721, real name Sam, was heartbroken. She placed an online to-go order at Los Angeles restaurant Truly Vegan, and in the "special instructions" section, she typed: "Please write something uplifting on the container, I just got dumped."

The restaurant responded by drawing a cartoon on Sam's takeout box, along with the words:

"You're worth it! You don't need him to be happy!"

We foresee a good Yelp review. 

Sam told The Huffington Post:
"I was very very pleased with the result. I've kept the container. I look at it when I feel particularly down about this relationship, or when some other dude does some other stupid dude thing."

reminds me of Sandra Bullock in 2 week notice.  Whenever she is feeling bad she orders the entire menu from the Chinese restaurant, at the end she orders it for two.

Sandy's hot!

I find it odd that some people think that everyone cares about their life. I get it all the time, hearing about everyone's problems. Yeah, we all got 'em. Must not have any lady friends to vent to.

This soooo does not count as any kind act... SHE asked for a kind word or two... so to make a client happy they did. She was looking for pity and she got it.
