After 4-year-old Evan waited, and waited, and waited some more for guests to show up to his birthday party, and employee at Chuck E. Cheese knew she needed to do something to help.
The boy’s mother had invited 30 people to celebrate Evan’s fourth birthday, but none of them showed up to the pizzeria and video arcade. As Inside Edition reported, mom Angela Kazanis kept a brave face but inside felt terrible for her young son as he watched in hopes that someone would show up.
“He was looking at the door,” she said. “You could see the disappointment on his face.”
Chuck E. Cheese employee Taylor Inzinna took it just as hard. She told the television news program that she had to escape to the bathroom to keep from crying for the young boy’s disappointment.
