A simple, unexpected act of kindness can change someone’s day, week, or even their entire outlook. One Domino’s Pizza employee in Australia recently went above and beyond his job description when he decided to step in and make a little girl’s birthday party memorable. When the child’s mother called to cancel their large order, the fast-food employee’s generous and caring gesture was set in motion.
Miles, the Domino’s shift supervisor, was informed by the mother that attendance for the little girl’s party was lower than expected. Several of the child’s invitees did not attend the birthday party. Instead, the mother informed Miles that she only required one pizza for the festivities. Instead of simply fulfilling the order, Miles devised a scheme to brighten the little girl’s day.
According to a Domino’s Australia social media post, Miles created a custom-made chocolate dessert pizza topped with churros and brownies and had written “HAPPY B’DAY” on the lid of the pizza’s box. Miles’ thoughtful and touching gesture drew praise from many, including the girl’s mother. In response to Domino’s Australia’s post about Miles, the child’s mother wrote on Facebook, “the visit from Miles at our door was overly special and the biggest surprise.”
The mother of a young girl responds to a kind gesture. Others appear to have followed Miles’ lead and responded with kindness and love, as indicated by the child’s mother. “The love from our community has been the most memorable for our family,” the mother added in her comment. So much affection.”
“We are so appreciative and grateful to live this beautiful life,” she continued. I wish everyone love and happiness.” Actions, as they say, speak louder than words. Our actions, whether of the unexpected kindness variety or otherwise, frequently have a profound impact on others.
