在一次温暖人心的善举中,一个陌生人帮助支付了一份无人认领的披萨订单的费用,将一个令人沮丧的局面变成了一个关于社区精神和慷慨的故事。
In a heartwarming act of kindness, a stranger stepped in to cover the cost of an unclaimed pizza order at PizzAroma, turning a disappointing situation into a story of community spirit and generosity.
在一个暖心的善举故事中,一个陌生人支付PizzAroma无人认领的披萨订单的费用,将令人失望的情况变成了社区精神和慷慨的故事。
A woman called PizzAroma and ordered 16 pizzas worth over $100 for pick-up the next day. “A lady called and placed an order for 16 pizzas to be picked up the next day. The next day came, and she called right before the order was to be ready. We told her it’s in the oven, and then she never showed up,” said Rocky Keefer, the manager. Unluckily, the pizzas had to be thrown away, leaving the small restaurant with a big loss.
一位女士叫PizzAroma,订购了16个披萨于第二天领取,价值超过100美元。“一位女士打来电话,下了16个披萨的订单,第二天就可以拿到。第二天到了,她在订单已经准备就绪的那一刻打电话来。我们告诉她它在烤箱里,然后她就再也没有出现过,”经理Rocky Keefer说。不幸的是,披萨不得不扔掉,让小餐馆损失惨重。
“I can’t see why someone would do that to anybody, let alone a small restaurant,” Keefer said, thinking about the distress the person caused. Fast forward to this week, Keefer got another call for a large order. This time, the caller had a surprising request — he wanted to pay for the 16 pizzas that were never picked up. Keefer didn’t believe that. However, when the man offered to pay over the phone, Keefer realized this was no scam (骗局).
“我不明白为什么有人会对任何人这样做,更不用说一家小餐馆了,” 基弗说,想着这个人造成的痛苦。快进到本周,基弗又接到了一个大订单的电话。这一次,打电话的人有一个令人惊讶的要求——他想为16个从未被取走的披萨买单。基弗不相信。但是,当该男子提出通过手机付款时,基弗意识到这不是骗局。
“I didn’t believe it at first. I was thinking, ‘Is someone trying to do it again?’ He said he wanted to pay on the phone, so then I knew it was not a scam. People like that, there aren’t many out there anymore. It was like an angel calling and saying I am going to help you out,” Keefer shared.
“起初我不相信。我在想,'有人想再做一次那样的事情吗?' 他说他想通过手机付款,所以我知道这不是骗局。这样的人,外面已经不多了。这就像一个天使打电话说我会帮助你,“基弗分享道。
The caller was Travis Truesdell. He had learned about PizzAroma’s hard situation through the Internet. He had ever gotten help during hard times, Truesdell felt he needed to lend a hand. “I have a lot of gratitude for people who have helped me out in similar situations where I was in need. I was happy to be in a place to pay it back,” Truesdell said.
打电话的人是Travis Truesdell。他通过互联网了解了pizzaromas的艰难处境。他曾经在困难时期得到过帮助,Truesdell觉得他需要伸出援手。“我非常感谢那些在类似的我需要帮助的情况下帮助我的人。我很高兴能在一个地方回报它,”Truesdell说。
