A young boy named Jack could have wallowed in embarrassment after throwing up in a bookstore.

But instead, he faced his fears head on and told the bookstore he was sorry in a very heartwarming letter.

Jack sent a gift card for Ben and Jerrys ice cream with the letter, too, according to the Reddit user who posted the letter online and also works at the bookstore.

This Ben and Jerrys card is for the people who cleaned up the throw up of a kid on Friday the 28th, Jack wrote. I dont know their names but I think them a lot and Im sorry again for throwing up, and hope you enjoy your ice cream.

And, of course, Jack was very transparent about who he was.

From Jack, aka the kid that puked right next to the bathroom.

Jennifer Wicka, the bookstores manager, told BuzzFeed News that shes never received a letter like Jacks from a customer.

I opened it up and read it and it totally made my day. Im pretty grumpy about people and humanity, Wicka told BuzzFeed. Oh man, some people are good.

Jacks apology is far from the first child apology to catch the attention of the Internet. Last week, a mother posted an apology on Facebook about her daughter, who misbehaved at a movie theater and upset another woman, BuzzFeed reported. The mother who wrote the post said she had her children write an apology letter to the woman and promise to pay for the womans next movie, BuzzFeed reported.

And last summer, one girls apology using friendship bracelets also went viral. The girl sent her neighbors a few handmade bracelets to apologize for throwing rocks at their back door, Brittany Binowski of Deseret News National reported.
