You have to hand it to this guy. A lot of folks would have blown off the deliveries to get some medical attention, at the very least.

Thomas Stefanelli, 37, said dedication to his job at Hungry Howie's Pizza kept him on the job after a struggle with a robber Saturday night left him bleeding from a bullet wound in his left thigh.

Stefanelli arrived at a home only to realize it was vacant, police said. The masked man approached Stefanelli, pointed a gun and demanded money. Stefanelli said he fought with the man, and two shots were fired. One hit Stefanelli, but he did not immediately notice.

The shooter eventually fled with a second man.

"They figured they were going to make an easy mark by robbing a pizza delivery person," said police spokesman Joe Durkin.

I guess that's one case where if I wasn't greeted with a pleasant attitude from the delivery boy I'd be willing to accept it...

Sounds like it must have been a graze....but still....I wonder if the people getting the pizzas had any clue and if so, why they didn't offer help.....

I think we have management material here....

It's lukewarm. I'm not paying.

Hell, if my pizza man got shot and still delivered the pizza, I'd give him 25% tip.

Hardcore, man, hardcore. I don't even like pizza enough to do that.

How do you not notice being shot?

I hope the customers enjoyed their pizza!

i remember this story i believe it happened where i'm from charlotte, nc (i now live in china) anyway i was surprized to hear that, but not the shooting of the delivery person. They are having a lot of problems with delivery people being robbed and hurt in the south and eastern part of charlotte.
my husband used to deliver chinese food and i hated it - always worried if he would come home or end up in hospital or worse. anyway i have to give him credit for employee dedication, manager - maybe hungry howies chain should give him his own pizza place
