    Living In Her Own Pizza Pie In The Sky

    | UT, USA | Food & Drink, Technology, Theme Of The Month

    Me: “Thank you for calling [Pizza Place]. Will this be for take out or delivery?”

    Customer: “Hi. Um, can I get a large pizza with pepperoni, sausage, olives—”

    Me: “Yes. I just need to know if you will be coming to pick this up, or if you would like to have it delivered?”

    Customer: “Yes.”

    (The customer proceeds to order food without telling me if it’s for take-out or delivery which is info that we need to take the order. To make things worse just at that moment my computer freezes making it impossible to take an order.)

    Customer: “… and I would also like to add a salad on to that order—”

    (The customer continues to order food at light speed as I try to interject.)

    Me: “Ma’am, I need you to hold on for a second.”

    (The customer is completely oblivious to everything I’m saying, and continues to order.)

    Me: “Miss, I need you to hang on for just a second. My computer froze and I am unable to take your order for a moment.”

    Customer: ” Okay, I think that’s everything. How much will the total be?”

    (I am completely dumbfounded by this woman.)

    Me: “I’m sorry. I have to put you on hold. Hang on for one moment.”

    (I put the woman on hold and notify my manager that one of the computers has frozen. I proceed to take the order on another computer but when I take the phone off hold I find that the customer has hung up. 15 seconds or so pass and the phone rings again. This time my coworker answers the call.)

    Coworker: “Thank you for calling [Pizza Place]. Will this be for take-out or delivery?”

    Customer: “Hi. Yes. Um, I just called in and your phone person hung up on me. We had the order paid for and everything.”

    (Never in my life have I dealt with a more oblivious person.)
