Student nurse's anger after being left note accusing her of 'taking our jobs'

A student nurse was furious after waking up from a nap to find a note accusing her of 'taking our jobs' as well as a warning that ' Brexit means Brexit.'
Charlotte Brien, 21, was having a nap in a 'sleeping pod' in Manchester University's library.
When she woke up, a handwritten note had been left on the table next to her.
It said: "First you took our jobs, now you're taking our pods. Brexit means Brexit."
On the reverse, it said: "PS go home and sleep."
Charlotte, who is in her third year, was outraged by the note an said there are a lot of international students at the university who would be offended, Manchester Evening News reported.

Third year student Charlotte says she was 'fuming'  

"Whoever wrote this is vile," the student from Manchester said.
"I was really angry and everyone who's seen it has been incensed about it too.
"I don't know if it was specifically sent to me because I'm quite clearly Mancunian.
"But I am in uniform because I'm a student nurse and they mentioned about stealing jobs.
"If they want to work for £80 a month they can go ahead.
"There are a lot of international students here so I'm just glad it was me who found it and not them. You would hope students might be a bit more educated than that.

The note was left next to her sleeping pod 
She had only been asleep for 15 minutes 

"There's no way someone outside has come in and done it - to get in the library you need a student pass anyway."
Charlotte said she uses the sleeping pods -installed at the university for tired students to catch up on sleep - very occasionally and had only been in there for around 15 minutes.
She said she had no idea anybody was around her.

The sleeping pods at the university's library allow students to take naps for up to 20 minutes 

"If someone really wanted to use the pod, they would have been welcome to just ask me," she continued.
"I didn't expect to get a passive aggressive note."
A University of Manchester spokesman said: “Library customer services are aware of this incident and will be checking for any further activity.”
