Danish: Pizza Pizza is right next door should we go down and pick some up?
Omar: Nah, lets just order it.
D: Calls pizza pizza. Hi can you tell me your specials.
PizzaPizza: Sure, we have a 2 pizzas with 2 toppings special.
D: Great. Could I get one plain cheese and the 2nd with 4 toppings?
PP: No, cannot do.
D: How come?
PP: Sorry cannot do.
D: I think you can do, but you won’t.
PP: Sorry cannot do.
D: ok fine, just give me… – places order.
O: Don’t forget the garlic dipping sauce!
D: Got it ๐Ÿ™‚

750 – Getting Hungry
Everyone: Hey where’s the pizza…isn’t there like a 40minute guarantee or something?

800 – Pizza guy arrives.
Us: Hey pizza guy, isn’t there suppose to be a 40min guarantee?
PG: Yes, you’ll have to call customer service about it though.
Us: Ok. So we call andย they put us on hold.
PG: I have to go…
Us: Well I’m on hold…
PG: I have to go or my next delivery will be late. And you’ll have to pay now. I can’t just leave the pizza w/o getting money.
Us: Ok fair enough, we’ll pay by credit.

Everyone: Shoot..1 (of 2) pizza’s is all burnt.
O: And the garlic dipping sauce is missing!!!

  1. OHMY. lol

    that beats our pizza waiting time. lol.

  2. lol
    Thankfully we’ve never had to go through that ๐Ÿ˜€

    But what a coincendence, we ate PizzaPizza tonight ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Hahaha. What a debacle for a couple of pizzas ๐Ÿ˜› And poor customer service. You guys handled it well though. I would have went down there and taken the microwave home with me as compensation ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I had a similar experienc in London a couple years back. That was a long night

  5. LOL what a mess!

  6. Sofi: haha, well this was by far the worst pizza delivery experience I’ve had…..and at the same time….possibly the most humourous b/c of the absurdity of it

    Liya: hehe, its ‘usually’ such an easy option! Overall I dont like eating pizza from here often though… spoiled me for pizza

    Azra: Haha, for something else maybe. Or if we were on our own. As a group we kind of just kept laughing at the situation.

    Mash: If it wasn’t for the 1 good pizza and the snack food, it would have felt like a much longer night! As it was, we just had some fun with it.

    M&M: hehe, it really was.

  7. isn’t pizza pizza haraam because of contamination when they are making other ppl’s pizza??

    • Interestlying I went to a seminar on the fiqh of food and clothing a few weeks ago and questions like this were asked. The answer given was that ‘contaminates’ do not make something haraam unless it is a significant portion. And in fact it was discussed how all animals already have contaminants (feces and other items) in their diet that they end up consuming naturally. That doesn’t mean you can purposely add things like for example alcohol in cooking and just say its minimal. But things that are accidental and not purposeful are fine.

  8. Wow that is so annoying. I have really no patience for this kind of stuff. One time the pizza delivery guy was like an HOUR AND A HALF late, and when I told him about the policy, he tried to take the guilt route out and say that this is his only job and you know, he will just have to pay from his own income and he really has no money blah blah. Sad to say but it was a muslim pizza company too…

  9. I think you all enjoyed it. Absurd can be fun

    • haha, well we laughed at the absurdity of it for sure. And I think its better to do that then get upset, but we were definitely getting hungry too!
