The Italian Job

What the $%#*!! Does the Mafia run PizzaPizza or what?

So, its late at night and I’m burning the midnight oil, and someone suggested food. Being a guy, I can’t resist a good bite. I already had dinner but I was still starving. I wanted some pizza, or a burger, or some poutine. Something thick and juicy I could sink my teeth into, stuff my mouth and later pat my belly. So, I go online to Pizza Pizza’s website and I’m like, totally suckered by their false advertisin’ ya know?

Loser!

$6.50 for a small pizza and I’m like hey, that fits the bill. Lets have it. So I add on two toppings and opt to have it delivered and … *sticker shock* … the price more than doubled!

=====================

=====================


So they called me up to verify the order anyways. Moronic, stupid, robotic girl at the other end of the line rattles off the grocery list of mandatory and monotonous say-ables. I stopped her and asked her how the price for the pizza jumped from the advertised $6.50 to $9.20 before any other variables were factored in such as dipping sauce, delivery, tax, etc and she basically reads off the entire receipt (see above).

I seriously felt like Trinity from the Matrix when she said “I don’t have time for this s–t.” when Merovingian was pulling his Arrogant Frenchman routine. so I stopped her solid and told her bluntly that she didn’t listen to my question and she’s like *gasp* .. “oh?!” as if I had just committed blasphemy. I asked her again how come the price went from 6.50 to 9.20 with only two toppings … she replied with an embarassed voice “oh hmm its $1.35 per topping…”

Unbelievable.

I guess its the mob running Pizza Pizza now.

I have to find a better pizza store.
