The food delivery person's note read, "Hello it's your Uber Eats driver Jordan. I wanted to give you this pot as a replacement for the one I knocked over on Sunday evening. I hope it was not a gift or of sentimental value to you. Also thank you for being so kind about it. I know this one is probably not as nice but I hope you can find use for it. - Jordan."

Every time I'm ready to give up on humanity, someone posts a lovely story like this and I remember that MOST humans are decent people.— Morgaine DRACARYS Pen, #Solarpunk 🟧 (@MorgainePen1) May 31, 2023

😭❤️ The icing on the cake is that this pot is so cute!— Jackie Daytona (@thereisnojayjay) May 31, 2023
I think he just created sentimental value for this one; so it might not be "as nice" but I'll wager it's also better.— T Karney (@pecunium) May 31, 2023
as an instacart driver, my biggest fear is doing something like this - a week ago, I tripped over a person's front step and fell into the corner of their brick building. at the time, I thought for sure I had broken my arm but was more concerned about dropping their grocery bag 😭— m*tt (@jffxns) May 31, 2023
That is the cutest, most thoughtful thing ever. The fact they even thought to mention whether the pot had sentimentality value — omg, what a sweetheart 🥰— Nana (@Nana_Tweets7) June 1, 2023
