Man, this is the kind of job I want after graduation.... noooo, not a pizza delivery man! I'm talking about matching the passion that this man has for his career.
Thomas Stefanelli, a pizza delivery man, had the pizzas, but the house that he was supposed to deliver them too was vacant. Odd? Yes, but not as odd as the next three events. A masked man with a gun approached him and commanded that Stefaneilli give him money (odd thing number one). The devoted pizza steward said no and FOUGHT BACK eventually receiving a bullet to the thigh (odd thing number two). Well, Stefanelli didn't realize that he had been shot, but when he did, his cell stopped working. So, he went to his next stop, delivered the pizzas to some hungry and I'm sure quite surprised customers, and called his boss from their phone. Then he sat down, wined and ate their pizza... NOT! Stefaneilli got back on the road to make THREE more deliveries! Wow. All I have to say is he better have received best tips of his adult life!

Goodness! Stefaneilli obviously found pride in his job. I mean, you could say he fed the hungry. But, truthfully although he may wear his hair net as a crown, others see his profession for what it says on his resume: pizza delivery man. Yikes, that sounds awful disparaging! I promise I don’t mean it as such! In conclusion :O) that the story just shows that lemons can be made into lemonade... you just have to get off your hiney and make the drink.
