There’s nothing quite like the days leading up to a massive hurricane. Government officials beg residents to evacuate. Locals raid grocery stores for storm supplies. And everyone watches as the weather slowly gets worse, hoping their hometown will make it through to the other side.
The vibe in Florida was dire in September 2017 as Hurricane Irma, a storm of record-breaking size, approached. But just as everyone in Jacksonville prepared to hunker down for the hurricane to make landfall, one restaurant manager had a different idea.
The manager sent employees at a Pizza Hut an unbelievable message just before the storm reached their chain restaurant’s location. As more and more people learned of the manager’s threatening note though, Pizza Hut’s spokespeople had the final word – and they had quite a lot to say.
