"Yes — I meant to order 3 mozzarella sticks," the customer confirmed.

Fresco’s Fish & Chips in Toronto is obviously best known for their fish and chips, but one customer has been riding hard for their mozzarella sticks. They were elated to find out recently that they could get them delivered again.

The owner of the restaurant, Michael Fresco, told BuzzFeed News he recently got this online delivery order in which the customer felt they needed to justify getting three separate orders of mozzarella sticks. "Yes — I meant to order 3 mozzarella sticks. Please don't judge me. I'm having a bad week," it read. Fresco said he cracked up when he saw it.

Fresco suspected the customer was extra excited because Fresco Fish & Chips had previously taken a hiatus from the delivery service Just Eat.

"It was hilarious," Fresco said. "I was excited to see it."

Fresco sent the receipt to his daughter, Adriana, who eventually posted on Reddit, where it's gone viral. Fresco said he just received another delivery of two orders of mozzarella sticks in which the customer was compelled to also explain themselves — jokingly.

"Didn't have as bad a week as the other person, but you need to give them a kick back for letting Toronto know the Mozza Sticks are back on the menu!" it read.

Fresco's been entertained by the comment section of the delivery requests, but more importantly, he's not judging.

"Sometimes, a bunch of fried food is just what you need on a bad day, or on any day, and that no one was actually judging the customer," Adriana added.
