A Burger Bar And A Taxi Company Just Made Someone's Day On Twitter

When John couldn't go get a burger, a burger came to him...

Posted on

It started innocently enough. A twitter user, housebound with a foot infection, simply lamented the fact that his condition meant he wouldn't be able to enjoy a burger at his favourite burger joint on #NationalBurgerDay.

Because it's the normal thing to do in 2014, he put out a plea to the Twittersphere for someone to bring him one.

.@byronhamburgers Confined to house w foot infection-can't walk. Need healing of burger. Anyone care to bring me one? #nationalburgerday

The folks at Byron Burger noted the plea and offered their sympathies, but admitted that they didn't offer a delivery service. So it looked like John's 'Burger Wish' would remain just that...

@johnbdivadivine We don't deliver, but I hope some kind soul comes to your rescue. Get well soon!
