pizza fail

Last night Steve and I decided to order pizza, as it was getting late and too hot to cook. As usual, we looked at dominos.com and each picked something (a cheeseburger pizza for him, and a thin-crust with chicken, black olives and feta for me). We kept an eye on the online pizza tracker while we watched House Hunters and soon enough, dinner was at the door.

Steve paid the delivery guy and handed me the boxes. I opened his box and put a few slices on a plate and handed it to him, and then went back to my pizza. I opened the box and what did I find?

A missing slice of pizza!

THE DELIVERY GUY ATE A PIECE OF MY PIZZA!!!!

I couldn't believe it. He tried to push the others over a bit, so it wasn't so obvious, but it still totally was. So this means that a. the pizza guy opened my box of pizza and b. likely touched the piece next to it, and c. probably wasn't wearing gloves. Ewwww.

I was going to call and compain, but didn't because a. this store is SO grossly incompetant and slow as it is, b. it was late and I was starving and c. I was so mad that I wouldn't have made any sense. I didn't eat the pieces that touched the missing piece though. I may write to dominos HQ and complain to them. We've had problems with this particular store before and have called to complain, but nothing happens. We use them because they are the closest and we are in their delivery area, rather than another store.

So, Dominos on Hawaii Ave NE, you are not my friend. Find some delivery drivers who can keep their grubby paws to themselves. Wankers.

Has anything like this happened to you? What would you have done?

totally agree about papa johns! I would complain too, at some point the HQ has to listen or do SOMETHING! That is appalling!!!

GROSSSSSSSS!!!! One time my super picky friends too us to a Mexican restaurant that they said was really good, and then proceeded to order nothing Mexican off the menu. They ordered a cheeseburger, but changed the burger to a chicken breast, and no cheese. WTF? When it came, it had cheese on it. So they asked for it to be taken back, and w/ no cheese. What did the kitchen do? They hacked off the top of the chicken where the cheese was!! It was hilarious but awful.

definitely don't waste your time calling the store directly, they're usually just as hopeless as the people they hire. notify HQ for piece of mind and then just never buy from that location again.
that would have creeped me out too... not sure if i'd be as brave as you and eat any of the pizza... i'd probably just pout and starve

That's crazy. I would ABSOLUTELY complain to HQ and mention that you've complained to this store about issues in the past and nothing has happened. Gross!

Ohmygoshi said...

wtf?! did he think you wouldn't notice? i'd definitely go with a call to HQ, that kind of service is simply unacceptable!

magda said...

clearly he chose the better pizza to steal. seriously, though, how disgusting! that's enough to make me never order dominos again : (

YUCK! That is horrible.

I would also have called and complained and then switched to Papa John's or some other pizza location!

Mandy said...

Wow that is a new low! I hope you didn't tip the guy. Do you think he transformed himself into "Pizza the Hut" after he left your house? Perhaps he "ate himself to death." :-)

I still can't get over this! Def call HQ. They need to know!

Katelin said...

oh wow i would totally complain, that's ridiculous.

Starfish and Sundresses said...

How disgusting! You definitely should call HQ. Or, better yet, tweet about it if you use twitter! A lot of companies are on it!

La Petite Chic said...

P.S. I like your new banner :)

OH GROSS!!! I would write HQ. A friend of my had problems with Starbucks and wrote HQ. They sent her a letter and a gift card.
