Restaurant Gets Delivery Order, Then Notice Message In 'Notes' Section That Forces Them To Act
LifeAspire Staff 1/6/2017
Taking food delivery to a whole new level is this unique story from a small town of Belfast in the United Kingdom. A local fast food joint called Feeley's Fish & Chip Shop was preparing for a delivery when an unusual message caught the staff's attention.
A takeout order placed online by a woman named Fiona Cuffe, had the usual items off the menu, but also a very special and creative request. Making full use of the add comments section in the takeout order form, Fiona had shared that she was terribly sick and needed someone to stop at the corner drug store to get her some medicine. Her exact note read:
"Will you please stop in spar on the way and get me benylin cold and flu tablets and I'll give you the money, only ordering food so that I can get the tablets I'm dying sick xx"
Feeley's staff was completely tickled and shocked at the request. Daniel Casey who is the restaurant's social media manager told CNN later that,
"...I admired her skill to get what she needed!"
Fiona's out of the box thinking was definitely very clever, and for anyone who has ever had to suffer through cold and flu symptoms alone, also justifiable. Thankfully for Fiona, her call for help was not ignored. Having been a regular customer at Feeley's, the staff was more than happy to do what they could to help her get better. They not only delivered her the food but also the medicine which she so desperately wanted. Daniel added in his interview to CNN,
"She was delighted at receiving the medicine and we wish her a speedy recovery -- our customers are the lifeblood of our business, and we will always do what we can for them."
The incident was too good not to be shared and so Feeley's posted a picture of her take out order note and the medicine tablets on their Facebook page. Turns out, lots of other people thought so too and the post was shared over 4,400 times and received over 2,000 comments. Even Fiona's father John ended up reading it and posted his thanks to Feeley's for helping take care of his daughter.
Just to make sure Fiona was well taken care of, Feeley's even promised her a meal delivery on the house when she was feeling a little better. For this Fiona couldn't help but be grateful and even went as far as calling the Feeley's staff her "wee angels."
Should you ever fall sick with nobody around to help you, may be you will be lucky enough to live around a caring fast food joint like Feeley's. We hope the medicine they delivered helped Fiona feel better soon and that she was able to ring in the new year with good health. What a way to end a year!
