A man’s quest to overcome his fear of rejection by making at least one crazy request a day for 100 days was throttled last week when a Krispy Kreme employee accepted his order for five doughnuts linked together in the colors and shape of the Olympic symbol.
“It’s only my third day and I have already failed,” Jia Jiang wrote on his 100 Days of Rejection Therapy blog. “But I did so with such amazement and happiness.”
When the 31-year-old approached the register to make his “specialized” doughnut order, Jackie, a shift leader at an Austin, Texas, Krispy Kreme, asked him when he would need it.
“In the next 15 minutes,” Jiang replied.
“I was honestly just hoping for a no and go home,” Jiang told Yahoo News in an interview on Monday.
Instead, Jackie spent several minutes using the back of some receipt paper to diagram the unusual order.
“Let me see what I can do,” she said.
Fifteen minutes later, she emerged with a Krispy Kreme box with the glazed Olympic ring arrangement inside—and, astonishingly, did not charge Jiang for it.
“Wow, Jackie, I’m a fan,” Jiang told her on behalf of everyone in America.
“I was overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it,” Jiang said. “I went home and tweeted to Krispy Kreme and blogged about it. I wanted the world to know about what she did.”
A campaign to get Jackie a raise and promotion was quickly launched in the YouTube comments section underneath Jiang’s video.
“Jackie is awesome,” more than one viewer wrote. “The world needs more people like her.”
“Yo if Krispy Kreme doesn’t promote her to CEO I’m boycotting!” wrote another. “And I love doughnuts.”
Jackie did not immediately return a call from Yahoo News seeking comment.
Jiang, who launched a Facebook page called “Give Jackie at Krispy Kreme a Raise,” said he returned to the Krispy Kreme chain on Sunday to thank Jackie for going above and beyond the call of doughnut duty.
