Getting a food order to home deliver is a usual occurrence for a Fish & Chips shop in Northern Ireland...

Sometimes they get a request for special instructions...

One order on Dec. 30 had the following special instructions...

"Will you please stop in spar on the way and get me benylin cold and flu tablets and Ill give you the money, only ordering food so I can get the tablets Im dying sick xx"

So what did they do?

They picked up the cold and flu tablets and delivered them to their unfortunate sick customer!

They posted the picture of the order on Facebook, and it's now been shared over 4,600 times, and attracted 2,200 comments!

Their customer also posted a picture on Facebook of the cold & flu tablets they delivered...!

In addition, it's been written about in many newspaper articles across the UK... and even in Asia!

I have no doubt that this will increase their business and profits... This small gesture will rack them up great profits - as well as community goodwill!

Anyone in their area who hasn't noticed this Fish & Chips shop yet, has definitely noticed them now!

This Irish takeaway received an absolute belter of a hangover request

This fish and chip shop just won the best customer service of 2016 (it even reached Asian media!)

Best wishes,
