Daily Pizza Pizza Habit Saves Elderly Woman's Life

You all saw this yesterday, right? Eighty-two-year-old Jean Wilson's daily pizza habit helped save her life. When Domino's delivery driver Susan Guy learned that the Memphis woman hadn't phoned in her usual order (one large pepperoni pizza — Wilson has been ordering that every day for three years now), Guy suspected something was up and told her boss she needed to go check on WIlson, stat:

"He was like, 'Naw, you don't have to do that,' and I said, 'Yeah I do. Clock me out if that's what you gotta do,'" Guy said.

Wilson had fallen three days prior and was unable to get up. After Guy didn't get an answer at the door, she called the police, who broke in and found Wilson. As of late Monday evening, Wilson was in non-critical condition at the hospital.

Man. Say what you will about Domino's pizza, but its delivery folks are crushing it lately! [via @engelsna and Girl Slice]
