    Family Sends Pizza Deliveryman to Check on Grandma After Hurricane

    Woman's Grandson Orders Pizza to Her House to Make Sure She Was Safe

    A family spread out over three states ordered a pizza for their grandmother in Florida to make sure she was alright after they couldn't reach her following Hurricane Matthew.

    Eric Olsen of Omaha, Nebraska told ABC News today that he became extremely worried when he wasn't able to reach his 87-year-old grandmother, Claire Olsen, who lives alone in Palm Beach, Florida, after Hurricane Matthew roared through the area on Saturday.

    "Well, I talked to her on Friday morning, and she had just lost power and she said, 'This is a nightmare,'" Eric Olsen told ABC News today, "and then we didn't hear from her for two days."

    He added: "I was calling the police department, I was calling the sheriff's department and no one was answering, so I was really worried."
    On Sunday, when he still wasn't able to reach her, he decided to get creative.

    "So I just said, 'I'm going to order her a pizza, and if they can deliver it, then I know she's alive,'" Eric Olsen said.
    Eric Olsen said that he wrote some special instruction when he placed the pizza order, asking the delivery person to call his phone when they went to deliver it. He then asked the deliveryman to put his cellphone to Claire Olsen's ear so he could hear from her and make sure she was alright.

    Eric Olsen said that when he heard his grandmother's voice on the other line, he felt "relief, absolute relief."
    "Police and fire couldn't do it, but Papa John's got there in 30 minutes and put the cellphone to her ear," Eric Olsen joked.
    He said he got the idea to order the pizza spontaneously. "I was just thinking, 'Who can go there right now? Who can I call in a city where I know no one?'"

    He added: "People are asking why I didn't call the police and ask them to do a wellness check, but I did! Trust me, Papa John's was a last resort."

    Eric Olsen explained that he is in Nebraska, his father is in South Dakota, and his sister is in Los Angeles, so there was no one nearby who could go check on his grandmother.

    Pizza deliveryman Lance Tyler told local ABC News affiliate WFTV that when he saw Claire Olsen speak to her grandson on his phone, "Her expression was just priceless."

    Claire Olsen added to WFTV that the pepperoni pizza from her grandson was “fantastic.”

    If that's not the best advertising boost for Papa John then I don't what is.
    It's awesome! Glad grandma is okay too <3

    Papa John's could turn this into a great ad campaign.

    But I do feel bad that grandma has no one near to look after her. I'm guessing she's one of those stubborn old broads who refuses to move.

    eta: ha, great minds think alike @whitetigress

    I like how Grandma seems mainly interested in the pizza.
    if you're so incensed that you can't fly your penis in public take it up with your state, arrange a nude protest, go and be the rosa parks of cocks or something - witchcurlgirl

    It's sad when someone has to resort to a pizza man to check on your grandmother. Good idea though.
