Serious Pizza Lover
Pizza is a favorite for many, and there’s a reason for that. It’s inexpensive, pretty cheap to make, and above all, it’s comforting. It’s the perfect food for those lazy days at home, or when you’re just not feeling good. But who would guess that eating pizza every day could save your life?
Kirk Alexander is a 48-year-old man who lives alone in Salem, Oregon. He absolutely loves pizza. For almost ten years, Kirk has been ordering pizza every single day from the same Domino’s Pizza shop. One day, when Kirk suddenly stopped ordering, the employees at Domino’s were shocked when they found out why.
“He orders every day, every other day,” said the general manager for the Domino’s shop, Sarah Fuller, when she interviewed by reporters. “His order pops up on the screen because he orders online. So we see it come across the screen and we’re like, ‘Oh, Kirk’s order.’” When there were no more orders coming in from Kirk, the staff grew concerned.
No Pizza Order For 11 Days

At first, they just thought that maybe Kirk had gone on vacation out of town. Still, time went by, and no orders from Kirk. The delivery drivers also noticed that Kirk hadn’t ordered in a while, so they approached Sarah. She then checked the system and saw that Kirk hadn’t ordered anything for a total of eleven days! She immediately knew something was wrong.
Friends With Domino's Staff

Kirk had been ordering from that Domino’s for years. “He orders all the time, so we know him,” said Sarah. Over the years the staff got to know him as a nice, quiet, and friendly guy. They had become friends. Some employees would even consider him family. They knew that Kirk never went on extended trips. Could Kirk have gotten sick of pizza and started eating from somewhere else?
No Need For Anything Else
“Kirk is a very well-known customer, but he doesn’t have a regular order – he’ll order anything from pasta or pizza to sandwiches or wings. It’s never the same thing every time.” It was obvious that Kirk was getting enough variety in his diet, and he was a man of habit. Employees began to think that something unpleasant had happened to Kirk.
