Pizza Hut Doesn’t Deliver and Domino’s Rocks!

August 31st, 2007

The third store never answers their phone. It rings like a bazillion
times. I hang up. Try again. A bazillion times later, Master's annoyed
so I hang up again. Note to pizza stores and their employees: It's
really hard to sell delivery pizza if you don't answer your phone. No,
really.

 


So we have a pizza place basically across the street. We've never
really had a problem with them except occasionally when the owner isn't
there orders get messed up or take longer to get finished and last
Sunday when B (the owner) wasn't there they refused to serve us at
twenty minutes to eight because they wanted to close on time. I
probably could have mentioned it to B and been offered things but I let
it slide. No biggie. We ordered from Domino's.

Tonight, for some reason, Master wasn't interested in ordering from the
place across the street. There was a really awesome deal in the flier
we got in the mail today. $18.99 for one Dippin' Strips Pizza with one
topping and one large one topping pizza from Pizza Hut. Great, right?

So… I call the closest Pizza Hut. Had I not been stuck in a
post-coital fog, I might have noticed the flier says they don't
deliver. First they put me on hold and leave me there for like five
minutes before I hang up. Finally I get them to answer and the girl
tells me they don't deliver. I act surprised. Then I say, "I have the
flier in my hand." when she asks if I need the number to another store.
:blush:

I call the second store. They put me on hold. This time, however, they
come back quickly. I ask if they deliver to our house and they don't.
Damn. On to the third store.

The third store never answers their phone. It rings like a bazillion
times. I hang up. Try again. A bazillion times later, Master's annoyed
so I hang up again. Note to pizza stores and their employees: It's
really hard to sell delivery pizza if you don't answer your phone. No,
really.

So we decide to drive to the non-delivery store. I place my order and
the kid goes "Pepperoni on chicken strips?" No, sweetie. Clean out your
ears. Dippin' Strips Pizza. Apparently they don't carry it. They did
once. They don't anymore. Yet here's this coupon in my flier that just
arrived today saying they do! So, it's a big "Thanks anyway." Click.

I call Domino's and get the owner? Manager? The someone-in-charge. I'm
trying to place my order but we seriously rarely ever order from
anywhere besides the place across the street. So I stumble around not
knowing the flashy names for their products and because I think I sound
like an idiot (I probably did) I say, "I'm sorry. I don't order from
you much so I don't really remember the 'real' names."

He asks why I don't order from there. My response, in a nicely put
"Duh!" sort of way, is "Because I have a pizza place across the
street?" He proceeds to tell me that the owner of the store across the
street has stolen his sign, his banner, and a few other things… not
to mention his business… since he opened his doors. I pretend to be
interested. "Oh, really?" I like B. He seems like a nice guy most of
the time. But I can almost see him, in a drunken stupor, running around
cutting up like that. Master just rolled His eyes when I told Him the
story.

So the guy tells me he's threatened to beat B up if B doesn't return
his stuff and back off. I'm thinking, "Uh… do you always tell your
customers such off the wall stories?" but I don't say anything and just
listen adding the appropriate, "Wow! Really?" when necessary. We got
free cinnamon sticks! And he says if we stop ordering across the street
and continue to order from him, he'll give us discounts all the time.
That rocks!

Except I almost feel like I'm cheating…
:lol:
