PARIS, TX (KTRK) --A nurse in Texas ordered a pizza during his graveyard shift in the hospital, but his dinner contained a note that some people consider extremely rude.
"We would appreciate it very much if you didn't wait until 5 minutes before we close," reads Kerry Miller, a friend of the nurse who received the note. "What the heck? You know, come on."
Miller couldn't believe what he was reading when his friend, who is a nurse, sent him the photo.
"It was the rudest thing I've ever seen."
A nurse at Paris Regional Medical Center received the hand-written note on the box after ordering from this Domino's pizza minutes before closing.
"I don't care if they called one minute 'til, the business is still open," Miller says. "Service your customers."
Miller says what angers him, nurses save lives every day. No matter the time, the holiday or the weather, they never close.
"How would you feel if you wrote something like that and then the next day you were laying there?" Miller says.
No one at the store would speak with us, but a spokesperson sent us this statement that reads in part: "We do not condone or encourage this kind of behavior or one-sided 'dialogue' with our customers."
Miller says, however, it's not about the pizza. It's about the note.
"That was the game stopper," he says.
The nurse who placed the order wasn't able to speak, but Miller says he was happy to do it for him. He posted the note online in hopes this never happens again.
"I want to see an apology to that hospital," Miller says. "I don't care if they have to bring a pizza to every flood, those nurses deserve something better."
There is no word if the employee who wrote the note was disciplined.
