There are some employees who go above and beyond to help a customer, even when it's outside of their job description. And when it happens in the food service industry, that kind of behavior stands out.
Food service employees are some of the lowest paid in the USA, which is why it's almost always amazing when someone working at a fast food joint doesn't look entirely miserable at their job.
When's the last time you had a fast food worker pour your hot drink with as much enthusiasm as this?
While the instances of outstanding service are few and far between, there are still some people out in the world who won't let a crummy-paying job in a mostly thankless industry get in the way of them doing the right thing.
Something that this woman, Kayla, discovered when she ordered a Jimmy John's sandwich to be delivered to her boyfriend. It was so incredible, she just had to share her experience.
It all started out with a kind gesture: getting her significant other something to eat while he was getting his study grind on. They were in a long-distance relationship.
I was dating a guy for a few months then. We were long distance (about 3 hours away from each other). He was about to graduate college and was studying for his final exams.— Kayla (@kayla_speer_) June 28, 2018
She let the employee know that her boyfriend would be the one signing for the sandwich, since she wouldn't be there.
She sent him a text letting him know that the food was coming and that he should leave a tip, but he didn't respond. Probably because he was already taking a small snooze.
The order was placed & my bf had texted me a little bit before letting me know he was going to take a nap. So I sent him a text saying “hey, foods on the way for you. Please leave a tip.” I didn’t hear back from him for a bit, but I just assumed he was sleeping.— Kayla (@kayla_speer_) June 28, 2018
This is when things start to get a bit weird.
She had no idea why Jimmy John's would be calling it. She bought the sandwich. Boyfriend got the sandwich, transaction completed. No need for a follow-up call.
I picked up assuming they were just informing me that the food was delivered or maybe there was something wrong with my card, but I was dead wrong....— Kayla (@kayla_speer_) June 28, 2018
The driver wanted to reconfirm that the order was for her boyfriend, which she thought was weird because she had given them the rundown previously.
That's when the bombshell dropped.
The delivery driver continued by saying this...”look, we usually don’t do this, but I think you would like to know...when we walked up to the door to your bf’s place we were able to see into his apartment and he was in his boxers with a naked women on top of him on the couch😳😳— Kayla (@kayla_speer_) June 28, 2018
Obviously agitated, flustered, and all sorts of shocked, Kayla needed to make sure the delivery driver saw what he saw. And that the guy in question was in fact her boyfriend.
I had a few follow up questions for the delivery guy (extrememly upset and confused) which he so graciously answered which confirmed that it was in fact my bf who was on the couch with the naked woman.— Kayla (@kayla_speer_) June 28, 2018
He was. And Kayla was officially single thanks to a Jimmy John's delivery driver who wasn't afraid to speak up and let her know about the behavior.
Kayla was grateful to the sandwich franchise, and made sure to "@" them in all of her tweets, thanking them for hiring an honest worker who went out of the way to let her know about her man's infidelity.
People felt bad that Kayla had to find out that way, but were in love with the story.
dude WHAT?! This is INSANE. I'm so sorry that your boyfriend was the worst, but thank God for that JJ's employee. 🙌🏼— Hannah Earll (@HannahRaeEarll) June 28, 2018
It turned already huge Jimmy John's fans into even bigger ones.
While others thought that the call from the delivery guy came from a personal place.
Real recognize real, indeed.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
