Mom Gives 'Mean Girls' an Intervention at Starbucks

'Mean Girls' was a hit because of the love-to-hate characters involved -- but what would you do if you stumbled upon Regina, Gretchen and Karen in the flesh?

One North Carolina woman recently found out when she ran into three women whose nasty personas rivaled those featured in the Hollywood blockbuster.

While waiting in line for her morning cup of coffee, Michelle Icard managed to overhear the women's conversation, which she could only describe as "very pretty, very boisterous" and "horribly behaved."

Instead of letting the conversation slip off her radar, Icard decided to take matters into her own hands, penning the trio a letter advising them to change their off-putting behavior.

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."

Elaborating on the blog post on her site, she said, "With each new topic I thought, 'This couldn't have been written in a more cliché-mean-girls way by a Hollywood scriptwriter'."

While she acknowledges that she may have overstepped her boundaries, she stands behind her behavior, stating, "I have to believe that there is still room in our village for lessons from strangers with good intentions in their heart."

Kudos to Icard for standing up for what she believes in and using kindness to combat the larger-than-life teenage bullies.
