My faith in pizza guys has gone up 123%
NO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY
So a few weeks ago I was in a hotel in Savannah with my grampa in the hospital next door, Mom was over staying with him, and the battery in the smoke detector went out so every 5 minutes it would let off this loud, high pitched ‘CHIRP’.
It was annoying as fuck, so I called the front desk to see if they had a battery for it, and they said the only thing they could do was change rooms. We’d already settled in for the night, and needed the next door rooms for my uncles the next day, so I said I’d deal. My uncles had my car in the next town over, so I couldn’t drive and get one myself.
An hour later, I’m ordering pizza and have gone insane because the damn thing CHIRPS. SO. MUCH.
So I begged the pizza guy on the phone to stop and get me a battery, told him I’d pay for the battery, and give him an extra tip for it, and he was chill with it. This adorable fucker gets to my room with the battery, opens it, asks to see the smoke detector, CLIMBS ON THE BED, CHANGES THE BATTERY FOR ME, and tests it.
My pizza was only 20 dollars, but I gave him 40 and told him to keep the change.
Well… once I tipped a pizza guy $40 at a hotel after a metal show. We were all loser drunk, but when he arrived my ESPECIALLY drunk friend was stripped down to his Batman underpants and puking into a wastebasket under a desk. The delivery guy very kindly asked if the friend was OK. We said yeah, he’d be fine, one of us is a paramedic (though the medic happened to be hiding under a table high), he just needs looootsa water, food if he can eat, and sleep… the usual.
And then we were like, “Here dude, please, take this $40 and try to forget that you saw this drunk man puking in his underwear.” Then I went and drank absinthe in a hotel hallway with strangers.
Not as inspiring as the rest of your stories, huh. Nice of him to ask after our friend’s safety though!
