random thought:

i have a phobia of calling pizza places to place an order.

i'm fine with every other type of food delivery place.

I haven't called a pizza place in years. Papa John's and Pizza Hut both have online ordering, so that's what I always use. Domino's hasn't received any of my business in years because of their lack of online ordering.

I know there are plenty of local pizza joints that have better pizza than the big chains, but online ordering wins everytime.

i usually don't have a problem with the local pizza places, it's mostly the corporate ones that bother me.

i think it's because the local places are so much more laid back.

My second or first job was at Little Cesar's pizza. I had to wear black pants, a Little Cesar's polo-type shirt and a stupid hat. They wouldn't let me wear my chain wallet "Because the girls can't wear jewelery" (???) it was within bike riding distance and I kept forgetting to pick up my checks on payday.


I was in my second week of training (this particular week was "Phone Week"!) and my "phone coach" was Chris: the effeminate guy with a heavy lisp ("Thank you for calling little Thetherth Peetha would you like to try our Cheetherth Pleetherth Thepthal? Now you try.") Needless to say I hated answering phones. I mean, come on, I was 15, my voice cracked and I had to say "Cheeser Pleaser" to complete strangers every 2 minutes. Now, it may come as a total shock to you, but (wait for it..) I got picked on in high school. A lot. And I'm sure, like most of you, the animosity came from the "cool" athletic kids; in particular this kid Chad Scheele and some other assholes I can't remember.

Anyway, here I am, standing in front of a dough encrusted telephone, wearing my special dork smock, waiting for some jerk to call and order a pizza. The phone rings, I pick it up and for some reason, hesitate to say my stupid "Blah blah blah Cheeser Pleaser blah blah blah this is Ian blah blah" line, and thank god because it's none other than Chad Scheele. Luckily he didn't recognize my voice, and I told him his pizza would take an extra 20 minutes because we were swamped (this of course was a lie, but hey, what the fuck.) At that time in my life, I would have been mortified to be seen in my sauce covered uniform by the highschool elite, they didn't need any more arsenal for their assholerly. Today, I could give a monkey's chuff, but I guess that's another story.

And that's my comment on calling Pizza places!

I always used Papa John's online ordering or forced my boyfriend to call whereever.

their online ordering can be a bit flakey at times, or i would just always online order.

like sometimes it goes to the wrong store and then you have to wait longer for it because it has to get transfered to another store and all that crap.

I have a phobia of delivering pizzas. Ahhh...this reminds me of the time I nearly went down to Papa John's a couple years ago and beat the fuck out of the manager. But that's a story for another time.
