A pizza delivery guy in California showed that he was committed to customer satisfaction and got more than he bargained for after receiving a bizarre request on one order.
The guy, who works for Pizza My Heart in Menlo Park took an order that came with a special request: “Send us your cutest delivery boy. Tell me I'm pret.”
The person who placed the order had ran out of characters to finish the instruction, but it was pretty obvious that they wanted to be told they were pretty.
User “coldfan” posted a photo of the note on Imgur, with the caption: “I’ve had orders like this before so I was expecting a group of college girls.”
Though when he arrived, he wasn’t expecting to encounter a birthday party in a room full of balloons.
"When I arrived there was no group, just one girl," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.
The delivery boy reportedly wished the customer a happy birthday, and the girl told him how she had a party but nobody came. She invited him in for some cake after a short conversation, and the delivery guy ended up staying for an hour.
“We laughed and talked the whole time, as I was leaving I gave her a hug and told her she was pretty,” he said.
The only negative aspect of this story was that upon the delivery guy's return to the restaurant, he received a written warning for taking so long. But he says it didn’t matter as long as he made someone happy on their birthday.
According to BuzzFeed, many pizza chains let customers include special requests when placing an order online. Apparently, they will follow the instructions no matter how weird they may seem, including cutting the pizza into different shapes and drawing a picture on the box.
