Synopsis
After Mr. Weatherbee turns him down for a camp counselor's position, Archie gets a job delivering pizzas for Kindly Mother Kelly. On his first delivery, he accidentally crashes the truck in Pickins Park and sends all the pizzas flying into the orphanage. As a result, Archie is fired. But a report on the delivery gets Archie so much publicity that he's offered his job back with Kindly Mother Kelly and Mr. Weatherbee offers him the counselor's job. But Archie feels depressed about being suddenly popular for fraudulent reasons, and he decides instead to take a job with people who really need him.

Indexer Notes

This is the last story from Bob Bolling's memorable run as writer-artist on Archie and Me (though he would draw, but not write, some later stories for the title).

The unseen but hard-driving boss "Kindly Mother Kelly" was first mentioned in Bolling's Little Archie Mystery Comics #1. Here she has become a corporation, complete with guards and attack dogs outside her building.

The central plot device of the story is reminiscent of Bolling's Little Archie story "Sled With a Mission," where Little Archie is a delivery boy and accidentally delivers food to poor kids.
