Worried Taco Truck Owner Calls His Best Customer After She Doesn’t Turn Up For Food For Several Months

The owner of a Washington taco truck felt compelled to reach out to his best customer by phone after she failed to show up for several months. A woman named Ker said she visited Thomas, who owns Taco Tom’s Lonchera, for more than a decade and used to buy food several times a week but ill health kept her away. Thomas noticed.

  1. Thomas was worried about Ker when he didn’t see her for so long. Sure, people go on vacation or have other meal plans, but Ker hadn’t shown up to the truck for several months. Then Ker, who’s currently a college student, got a voicemail from Thomas, which she then shared on TikTok.
  2. Taco Thomas is a “sweet soul.” In the video, which has since been viewed more than three million times, Ker wrote “Thinking about the time the taco truck man hadn’t seen me in eight months and called me to see if I was alive still.” She played the message out and added that he is a “sweet soul.”
  3. Thomas cared enough about Ker to reach out. “This is Thomas, from the taco truck, it’s a long time since I seen you, and I’m worried about you. How are you? I hope you’re good. Ok take care, bye bye,” he says in the voicemail. How lovely is that? The voicemail was from 2018, it turns out, but Ker only just decided to share it.
  4. So wait, why do they have each other’s phone numbers? In a follow-up video, Ker revealed that she and Thomas had exchanged numbers so they could stay in touch about where Thomas was parking. “Thomas is a literal angel, I agree everybody needs a Thomas in their life he’s the sweetest guy, ever. I’ve been going to his truck almost every week, multiple times a week at least since I was in high school. I’ve known him for 12 years. His truck has moved around a lot which is why I have his phone number so I can figure out where he’s at,” she said.
  5. Yes, she went back to the truck soon after. As soon as she felt better, she started visiting Thomas’s taco truck again and still goes there now. What a great story!
