CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A mom and writer is calling out a few "mean girls" after she overheard a conversation she didn't like at Starbucks.

Michelle Icard said she heard the teen girls making fun of another girl who wasn't with them.

They were laughing about a song she had written about being lonely and also about presents she had given them that they didn't like.

Icard got her coffee and left but later returned to give the "mean girls" a note.

It reads,

Hi Girls!

I sat near you today in Starbucks and listened as you talked. You three are obviously pretty and hard-working. I wish your kindness matched your pretty exteriors. I heard you talk about a girl who sang a song about being lonely in the talent show - and you laughed. About a girl who couldn't be lead singer because you got all the votes, about crappy presents other people have given you…and you sounded so mean and petty.

You are smart and you are pretty. It would take nothing from you to also be kind. - M.
