A Woman Found The Most Depressing Note From Someone’s Grandma In A Used Stephen King Book

When you open up a Stephen King book, you expect to be horrified, but not by a note someone left in the cover! Twitter user Summer Burton was getting ready to purchase a pre-owned copy of King’s 2000 memoir On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, when she opened to the front and found an anonymous masterclass in breaking hearts.

A card, kept within the used book, laid out a downright depressing piece of advice:

“Anthony — Please listen to me! I want you to start a savings account. Anytime you have more to ‘spare’ drop it in that account. Call it ‘my survival account.’ Never use that money. Let it accumulate and not even in an emergency take from it — only add to it. If someone had told me years ago that I would be living at the poverty level, I would have said ‘never!’ Well I’m struggling to stay afloat and I have no one to blame but myself. As a matter of fact I saw this book at a resale shop, it cost 54 cents, it’s your birthday present. I love you! — Grandma”

Twitter users were devastated by Grandma’s brutal honesty:

Please someone let us know if Grandma turned out ok…

Is this how torture works?

Stephen King would be proud of the emotion this single page was able to extract from readers.

One thing’s for certain: Anthony did not have a pleasant birthday if he did end up reading this card.
