Every morning, this man and his wife call their order in to Chik-Fil-A for breakfast.
On Monday morning, he called, but this time, it wasn’t for breakfast.
The store was closed due to the hurricane, but the manager, Jeffrey Urban, was their overseeing the store when he saw the call.
Recognizing J.C.’s number on the caller ID, Jeffrey answered the loyal customer’s call, thinking he just didn’t realize the store was closed.
It turned out that J.C. had something else he wanted to order.
A rescue party for him and his wife, Karen.
Urban said, “He was saying he was trying to reach out to people, and he couldn’t get any response from 911. So he called Chick-fil-A to see if we could help him out. And it was such a blessing that, in that exact moment, I was there to answer the phone and get him help.”
I guess when you can't count on 911, you count on... Chik-Fil-A?
Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose.
So Jeffrey, being the good man that he is, got to work making sure his loyal customers and fellow humans were well-taken care of.
Which is how we got from Chik-Fil-A to jet skis.
So, Urban got to work, calling the story owner, Cindy Smith, whose husband had a boat.
He towed the jet ski behind the boat down the street to the Spencers’ home.
