Domino’s worker surprises birthday girl after her friends don't show up at party
QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA: A girl's day was turned around when she received a surprise gift from a Domino's employee after being left to celebrate her birthday alone when her buddies failed to show up at the party. Last week, the mother of the Queensland child had to call the Domino's restaurant in Coolum, on the Sunshine Coast, to revoke the sizable order she had earlier placed to feed partygoers.
Her daughter's friends of the same age weren't coming to her birthday party, according to a post on the Domino's Australia Facebook page, so she had to change her reservation to just one pizza. Miles, the store's shift manager, made the decision to try and lift the girl's mood after learning the child's terrible story from the Domino employee who received her telephone.
Domino's Australia posted a picture of the employee, Miles on their official Facebook page with the caption, "Last week, Domino's Coolum received a call from a local Mum hoping to cancel the large order she had placed as a number of her daughter's peers hadn't turned up to his birthday party. When she arrived at the store to collect the one pizza, shift supervisor Miles surprised her with a custom chocolate dessert pizza topped with churros & brownies! Thank you Miles for going the extra 'mile' to help turn this customer's day around."
Miles, the store's shift manager, made the decision to attempt to cheer the young kid up after hearing the heartbreaking story from the Domino's employee who answered her call. He immediately started working on assembling a temporary cake and came up with "a homemade chocolate dessert pizza topped with churros and brownies." Miles posed for a picture with his work and a "Happy B'Day" inscription written in chocolate on the back of a pizza box before the order was picked up.
He received admiration from hundreds after his thoughtful deed was posted to Facebook on Tuesday. “Well done, Miles. You sound like a great human,” one user commented. “Good job Miles, I hope that cheered her up, heartbreaking when people don’t turn up for the party,” another wrote. “This is my biggest fear as a parent. So happy there was some what of a good ending to this,” a mum wrote. Another user commented praising Miles "Miles was raised right!! Well done mate!!"
A comment urging Domino's to assist in organizing another party for the young child received more than 1,800 responses because "no kid because (or their parents) should ever feel that kind of heartbreak," it read. Others pushed the store to recognize Miles and increase his wages. Domino's appreciated Miles for attempting to lift the girl's spirits.
