Nurses often have to eat on the run, but the employees at a Domino’s in Texas were not sympathetic.

On Wednesday night, a group of nurses who work at Paris Regional Hospital ordered a pizza from the local Domino’s. When the pizza arrived, there was a note on the receipt. It said, “Thanks! We would appreciate it VERY much it you didn’t wait 5 minutes before we close.”

Kerry Miller, a friend of a nurse, was upset by the tone of the message and posted it on social media. Miller wrote on Facebook, “Nurses work long hours and eat when they can as they take care of our loved one. A business is open until they close and are in business to service the public.”

CBS11 contacted the Domino’s restaurant that the nurses ordered from, but staff members would not speak about the incident. A company spokesperson told CBS11 via a statement, “We do not condone or encourage this kind of behavior or one-sided ‘dialogue’ with our customers.” 

Miller thinks the nurses are owed an apology.
