A customer who had been ordering pizza for 10 years suddenly disappeared. What did the staff of the pizza shop do?
Thousands of people order food every day at various food shops around the world, but when some people start eating from there regularly, the staff of this place also becomes aware of them. The staff of one such pizza shop said that one of their customers Helped her in her most difficult time, having been her client for the past 10 years.
This is the story of Kirk Alexander, who lived in the US state of Oregon in his fourth decade. Like every other American, his favorite food was pizza.
Kirk had been ordering pizza daily from the same pizza outlet for the past 10 years, and in 10 years the staff at the pizza shop was well aware of it. Sarah Fuller, general manager of the shop, says that Kirk’s online order used to appear on our screens at lunch every day.
The delivery boys who delivered the pizza to Kirk were well acquainted with him, he treated them with great courtesy, and he had become regular friends with several boys.
One day after 10 years, Kirk’s pizza order suddenly disappeared. This was a surprise to the staff of the pizza shop, but when Kirk’s order did not arrive for several days, they became upset.
It was normal for the shop staff and the delivery boys to deliver Kirk’s order, so when the routine was disrupted, everyone felt it.
At first it was thought that Kirk might be out of town for the holidays or to visit his family, but some staff members expressed concern and brought this to the attention of General Manager Sarah. Checking the records, he found out that he had not received Kirk’s order for the past 11 days.
Then he realized the mess and decided to send someone to Kirk’s house to inquire about his well-being.
General Manager Sarah sent a delivery boy named Tracy to Kirk’s house. When Tracy arrived at Kirk’s house, the lights were on, and the TV was on. Tracy knocked on the door but received no response from inside.
Tracy called Kirk but the phone went to voicemail. Tracy knew there was something wrong inside, so she ran back to the shop and told her colleagues about the situation.
Without wasting time, the pizza shop staff immediately called 911, from where local police arrived at Kirk’s home after receiving instructions. Police knocked on Kirk’s door and called out to him, but Kirk’s faint voice came from inside, calling for help.
Police immediately broke down the door and entered where Kirk was lying half-dead on the floor. He was rushed to hospital.
Kirk had a stroke and was unable to do anything to help himself. He was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital where his condition improved within a few hours.
According to doctors, if only one more day had been delayed, Kirk would have died.
On the other hand, the staff of the pizza shop was shocked, this situation was not even in their imagination. Later, the staff of the shop not only rushed Karak to the hospital but also kept visiting the hospital to see if Karak needed anything.
After thorough treatment and the attention of doctors, Kirk finally recovered completely and returned to normal life. The incident had become popular by then and not only the local but also the national media was regularly reaching out to interview the staff of Kirk and the pizza shop.
Manager Sarah said that all her customers are like family to her, she is happy to be able to help Kirk.
The head office of Pizza Outlet also appreciated the enthusiasm of its employees and invited them to its annual annual rally in Las Vegas, where Sarah, Tracy and other staff members were greeted like heroes.
