The diligent years of toil, service and hard work of a man in the United Kingdom has finally paid off after his customers surprised him with a car gift.
Robert Peters has for 31 years served as a deliveryman to the people of the community of Tripton in Indiana and didn't for once waver in his service delivery.
The young man who works with Pizza Hut, according to Insider, has a track-record of customer hospitality and friendliness that has endeared him to his Tipton town customers.

In the words of Tanner Langley, a regular patroniser of his delivery service, Peter has over the years demonstrated his obsessive commitment to customer service without even expecting a reward.
He said the delivery man always made sure his customers get an exact change even if it meant him driving around in search of change.
"He didn't want you to feel like you had to tip him because he didn't have the change."
Touched by the young man's impeccable attitude on the job and character, Langley had started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to change the deliveryman's Oldsmobile car that has been giving him problems.
In the space of two days, the community had raised about N7.2 million and went ahead to buy him a surprise red 2017 Chevy Malibu car.
The money they raised will also cater for insurance cover as well as gas needed to run the new car.
Overjoyed at the unexpected surprise the deliveryman said it is still a thing of surprise to him.
He said that:
"There were people in my family that were like, 'Maybe you should consider something a little more financially stable.' But it's my purpose in life — trying to make people happy. You know, when you're delivering to somebody, you may be the only face they see all day."
