When a gamer bought a second hand Nintendo DS online, it came with a thoughtful note.
The seller clearly found it difficult to part with the possession they had owned for more than a decade.
So to close the chapter in their life, they wrote a heartwarming message for the person who bought the console.
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.”
The note adds: “I’m 23 now and hoping someone else gains the same enjoyment that I did.
“Happy gaming/collecting! (or reselling… times are tough lol!)
The person who purchased the Nintendo DS was very moved by the note.
They shared a picture of it online and branded the experience very “wholesome”.
The Reddit post has garnered more than 88,000 upvotes – and many praised Janie for taking the time to leave the thoughtful letter.
One commenter wrote: “What a friendly and understanding note. I hope to be more like Janie.”
Another said: “I hope Janie is doing well.”
And a third added: “Janie is a good a person.”
Others said the post made them feel nostalgic about their old games consoles.
A Redditor revealed: “My mum got me this DS when I was 11!
“They only had so many per store and she waited for hours to get it.
“She’s gone now but it’s a wonderful memory I have. This DS is special. Enjoy!
And another said: “Oh man, I had this DS as a kid.
“I don't know where it is now, but I really wish I could find it. Good memories.”
