Have you ever wanted to thank someone for their help in giving you directions, serving you a nice cup of coffee or to the people who helped push your car when it broke down?

Now you can, on a website called Thank You London created by Oliver Rees.

The site allows people to add their thank yous and tag them to the location the event happened in.

One of the site’s thank yous, posted on April 30 and tagged close to Crouch Hill station, reads: “Thank you Mega Cafe! Cheese on crusty toast with beans on top and a chocolate milkshake. Every Saturday you make my day.”

Another, from the same day and tagged on Chados Place in central London, says: “Thank you to the man who bought my Starbucks drink after it turned out I had no money!”

Not all the thank yous are happy. One, tagged at Covent Garden, says: “Thank you for breaking up with me.”
