Inspiring message on takeway carton after woman is dumped by her boyfriend

Beans and riceA vegan restaurant customer asked for “something uplifting” with her takeaway order after she split from her boyfriend –  and received a special message which she promptly posted online.

‘Sam’ ordered the takeaway from the Truly Vegan restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles. In the special instructions section of her order, she wrote:

“Please draw something uplifting on the container, I just got dumped.”

When her order arrived, staff had drawn a figure holding a placard with the message “you’re worth it”, and a second message reading “you don’t need him to be happy” along with a cartoon sun.

Sam posted a photo of the carton to content-sharing website Reddit, saying “the result exceeded my expectations”.

She 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.”

Well, obviously he decided “you’re NOT worth it” !

Sorry, bad taste, but this was so ‘Disney-ish’ I couldn’t resist :-)
