So she put out a call on social media: would someone please brave the storm to make the delivery?
Bob Annan saw the post and concluded, why not me:
“I live in Brookline and had no power,” he said. “It was really hot last night, and my wife is a nurse and she had to work in the morning at UPMC Montefiore. So I didn’t want to wake her up, so I thought it had to be cooler in the car, so I hopped in the car, went to Fiori’s and I got her pizza.”
“Fiori’s was unable to take my credit card over the phone, so he just trusted me that I pay him the next day and he gave me a great discount, but the nurses were so grateful,” Ferretti said.MORE NEWS: Duolingo Doubling Office Space In East Liberty
