Delivery driver leaves shopper heartwarming handwritten message on receipt

A shopper who often leaves her delivery drivers sweet notes “so they know they are appreciated” was shocked when she received one in return.

The woman from Melbourne, Australia was unpacking her weekly Coles food delivery like she usually does, when she came across a pleasant surprise.

Nestled among her groceries, was a sweet note from her delivery driver, in response to her own kind message she’d left on the delivery instructions.

According to news.com.au, the woman shared the heartwarming discovery on Facebook, admitting it “lifted her spirits”.

She wrote: “When I am expecting a delivery … I always write a sign to say thank you and just a few words wishing them good health etc so they know they are appreciated.

“Well, it was my turn today. Got a lovely note written on the bottom of my invoice.”

Upon reading her sweet message, the driver, named Mal, decided to leave one of his own.

“Thanks for the kind words,” the driver wrote.

“Stay safe and well. Mal, Coles driver.”

“It really has lifted my spirits more than I can say,” the customer continued in her social media post.

This comes after a gamer, who bought a second-hand Nintendo DS, received a note from the previous owner.

Janie, 23, had owned the computer console for over a decade before deciding it was time to part ways with it.

But before they sent it to its new owner, they wrote them a sweet note detailing all of the happy memories they had with it.

The letter reads: “Hey there! Thanks for buying.

“I got this DS as a birthday gift when I was 10. I had no idea who Link or Zelda were when I got it but I sure did by the end!

“And it travelled with me for lots of long rides.”

“I’m 23 now and hoping someone else gains the same enjoyment that I did.

“Happy gaming/collecting! (or reselling… times are tough lol!)

“- Janie.”

The person who purchased Janie’s DS was moved by the “wholesome” experience and posted a snap of the note to Reddit, where users praised the former console owner’s kind gesture.
