Nurses who ordered pizza ‘5 minutes before close’ find rude message on box

A nurse in Texas ordered a pizza during his graveyard shift in the hospital and couldn’t believe it when his dinner contained an extremely rude note.

The handwritten note said, “We would appreciate it very much if you didn’t wait until five minutes before we close.”

The nurse sent the picture to his friend, and that friend is now demanding an apology. “It was the rudest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Kerry Miller, the nurse’s friend to KTVT.

“I don’t care if they called one minute ’til, the business is still open. Service your customers.”

Miller says what angers him is that nurses save lives every day – no matter what time or day of the week, they never close.

“How would you feel if you wrote something like that and then the next day you were laying there?” said Miller.

A spokesperson for Domino’s sent this statement to KTVT: “We do not condone or encourage this kind of behavior or one-sided ‘dialogue’ with our customers.”

    Having worked at a pizza place, I understand that you have a closing process that you start about two hours before close in hopes that you can actually go home within an hour of closing. There are no circumstances under which I would order anything at a “fast food” place within five minutes of close because usually you don’t get a note explaining their frustration, you usually get something worse…in your food.

    Hey Kerry Miller!!
    The note wasn’t addressed to you, get a life.
    Mind your own business!!!
    I wonder why you need an apology?
