Teddy’s only wish for his 6th birthday was to have a slice of pizza with his classmates.
An Arizona mom says none of her son’s kindergarten friends showed up to share a slice of pizza with his dear boy. There were supposed to be 32 people sitting around the table.
The sad boy, Teddy, called up his classmates on Sunday at Peter Piper Pizza in Tucson, where he and his mother, Sil Mazzini, had been expecting the entire class around the table, as well as their parents. Few people called in advance that they had different plans for the day, but they weren’t prepared for NO ONE to show up, and it broke the boy’s spirit.
“I’m done with parties for a while,” Mazzini told KNXV.
Mazzini shared a photo with a reporter at KVOA who then shared the image on his Facebook page of her son sitting alone in front of several pizzas. Other people felt it, even through the photo. To lift his spirits, people sent gifts and offers to the young boy all around the globe, including a free ride in a “mouse limo” owned by a local exterminator.
“I live near Tampa, Florida, and heard about you via my local news,” a woman wrote on the Facebook post. “I hope you have a wonderful year and I’m sending you a big hug.”
“People are flaky and inconsiderate sometimes,” another woman wrote. “It happens, that doesn’t mean you aren’t great, just that people are silly. Best wishes kiddo!”
But what happened next was totally unexpected! The best gift Teddy got was from the Phoenix Suns, who invited the young boy to watch Wednesday night’s game at the Talking Stick Resort Arena against the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James.
“How about we celebrate with thousands at our place!” the team tweeted. “Tickets to Wednesday’s #SunsVSLakers game are all yours Teddy! Talk soon!”
The Phoenix Rising, a city’s professional soccer club, invited Teddy to “join 7,000 of his closest friends” at a playoff game on Friday. Some fans even reached out to make a customized jersey for him.
But some people on social media raised an eyebrows on Mazzini’s decision to broadcast her son’s humiliating day.
“Quick! Someone call the news, let’s embarrass this kid even more than he already is,” one woman wrote on Facebook. “Good lord. This is so wrong.”
Do you think these people did the right thing, or he should get some tough love and learn things the hard way?
