Nine times out of ten, receiving a text from a stranger isn't welcomed, as it's usually spam or unwanted contact.
Occasionally – depending on the contents of the message – it can be something that raises a laugh.
Even rarer, however, it can be something genuinely nice to receive.
This was the case when a woman received a text message from her delivery driver after he dropped off a kebab.
The duo had clearly had a quick conversation on the doorstep and it seemed to be on the man's mind after he left.
The text went viral on Twitter

People left in stitches after woman's attempt to exit office goes very badly
So he sent her a quick message, which has gone viral on Twitter, with people enjoying the man's sweet gesture.
The woman tweeted: "I ordered food from the kebab (again) and when the delivery man [came] to my door I said omg I’m [gonna] get so fat and then he text me this," alongside a crying laughing emoji.
The text said: "Hi u got me worried what u said bout getting fat don't worry ur not fat hope ur ok."
The tweet has been shared more than 17,000 times and racked up more than 370,000 likes.
One person joked: "The man we all need in our lives."
Another added: "THAT IS SO SWEET. He has probably struggled with or knows someone who has struggled with an eating disorder so he's probably hyper-aware of that kind of stuff so he wanted to reassure you."
A third commented: "The fact he checked on you and your mental health is so kind. The world needs more people like him."
But others disagreed and criticised the message forcing the woman to defend its contents.
One Tweeter replied: "This whole interchange is informed by fatphobia and is hard to find funny when it's based on viewing fat as inherently bad.
"If the delivery person was fat would you still say that??? Regardless, I hope that this man isn't being predatory and legitimately wanted to check in."
The woman replied: "F*** me, I only wanted to share that my delivery driver was nice."
Another replied: "It was a lovely text. I hope it made you feel good! And I hope you enjoyed the kebab!"
