FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) — Christina Petersen was having a terrible Tuesday. Someone broke into their family car while they were shopping in central Fresno. The thief took her husband's wallet and shattered the passenger window.
On the way home Petersen stopped to get a pizza at Papa Murphy's. While she was waiting the owner asked how her day was going and she shared her sad luck story.
When she got home she opened up the pizza package and was shocked to see what he stuffed inside. "When I came home I saw the note and it was $100 behind it and I was like this is awesome."
Petersen had been saving money for her daughter's after sports programs and she worried she'd have to use the money to fix the window on the car.
She says Brett Frazier the owner of Papa Murphy's in northwest Fresno saved the day. "I cried and I called him and I said I think there was an error. I found your note and I think there was an error. There was 100 dollars. There was no error there I just wanted to help you out."
Petersen dropped by Papa Murphy's to personally thank Frazier but he was gone for the day. Store manager Aubry Callahan says he's a great guy. "He's a fantastic boss. I've worked for him for seven years. He's been very generous."
Petersen says he's more than generous. "For someone to have compassion like that it's amazing because you don't find it nowadays."
Christina says her family is now a Papa Murphy's customer for life.
