This is taking food delivery a bit too far.

"And then the next thing I know he shot it in our direction, and bam! It hit me like a ton of bricks. My glasses flew," Kathy McVay, a Plymouth Meeting resident, originally told 6 ABC's Sarah Bloomquist about the incident.

McVay said she went to a hospital and underwent a CAT scan to make sure that she didn't suffer a concussion.

"I have a small hematoma in my eye," McVay said. "And mostly, it's going to get worse before it gets better. It's going to go down the side of my face."

Per the report, the Phillies did reach out to McVay to apologize and "the Phanatic feels terrible about what happened" (although we're not exactly sure how he explained that sentiment).

To her credit, McVay understands the ridiculous nature of her injury and is taking it all in stride.

"When I tell my brothers, they started laughing," she said to NBC10. "It's funny, it's a story I can tell people. My only thing is just to warn people just to be careful. Because you would think you'd get hit by a baseball instead of a flying hot dog."

Now that the public knows she's OK, McVay can bank on people getting a decent laugh out of this one.
