WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Kirk Alexander is one of Domino’s regular customer for about ten years, ordering the same pizza almost every week.
- Since becoming a “regular”, Alexander developed a special friendship with the Domino’s employees.
- When Alexander hadn’t placed an order for 11 consecutive days, Domino’s employees suspected that something was amiss.
Kirk Alexander of Salem, Oregon became a regular customer at Domino’s that he became friends with its employees. That’s why when he suddenly stopped ordering from the restaurant, the employees didn’t take it sitting down.
The 47-year-old Alexander ordered the same pizza regularly, almost every week. The Domino’s staff became worried when he failed to order online for almost two weeks. Tracey Hamblen, a staff at Alexander’s favorite Domino’s thought she would pay him a visit to his home.
Arriving at Alexander’s house, she noticed that the lights and his television were still on. But Alexander did not answer the door. She then tried calling his cell phone, only to be directed to a voicemail. She started to panic.
Filled with worry and didn’t know what else to do, Tracey decided to call her manager, Jenny Seiber. The manager didn’t waste time and immediately alerted the local police, calling 911.
“This is Domino’s Pizza and we have a customer that usually orders like every night from us,” Seiber’s 911 call began.
The Marion County sheriff’s deputies responded and went to Alexander’s home. They heard someone inside calling out for help. They found Alexander on the floor who seemed like he’d suffered from a stroke.
An ambulance transported Alexander to a nearby hospital. It was reported that his condition was becoming stable. The doctors weren’t able to determine when exactly he’d suffered the stroke. They also said that Alexander is going to make a full recovery.
Sarah Fuller, Domino’s general manager told reporters, “He orders every day, every other day. His order pops up on the screen because he orders online. So we see it come across the screen and we’re like, ‘Oh, Alexander’s order.’”
She also said that the Domino’s staff consider him as a family member. “He orders all the time, so we know him. I think we were just doing our job checking in on someone we know who orders a lot. We felt like we needed to do something,” she added.
Alexander’s life was saved by the friends he made at Domino’s. They did not just speculate, but they went beyond their duties to check on him when they thought that something was wrong. And that’s what family members do for each other.
