PARIS, Texas (CBS11) – A nurse is outraged after he made a late-night pizza order and received a hand-written message on the box many feel is rude and insensitive.
“We would appreciate it very much if you didn’t wait until 5 minutes before we close,” was found on the side of the box delivered by a Domino’s Pizza employee to Paris Regional Medical Center.
“It was the rudest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Kerry Miller, who’s friend is a nurse in Paris.
The nurse placed the order to the Domino’s five minutes before the store closed at midnight.
“I don’t care if they called one minute ‘til, the business is still open. Service your customers,” said Miller.
What angers Miller is that nurses save lives every day no matter the time, the holiday or the weather.
“How would you feel if you wrote something like that and then the next day you were laying there?” questioned Miller.
No one at the Paris Domino’s Pizza would comment about the situation. A spokesperson with the company sent a statement.
“We do not condone or encourage this kind of behavior or one-sided ‘dialogue’ with our customers,” wrote Tim McIntyre.
The nurse who placed the order was not available to speak, but Miller was happy to do the talking for him.
Miller posted the picture of the box and the message on social media in the hopes it will never happen again.
“I want to see an apology to that hospital. I don’t care if they have to bring a pizza to every floor, those nurses deserve something better,” said Miller.
Domino’s has not commented whether or not the employee will face disciplinary action for the message.
