No Such Thing As Free Pizza

, , , , | Working | March 17, 2019

(I’m going into the pizza place to pick up the pizza my mother ordered for carryout. I have the money to pay for it in my hand.)

Employee: “Hello. You picking up?”

Me: “Hi. Yes, I am.”

Employee: “All right. Name, please?”

Me: “[My Name].”

(The employee goes and picks up the pizza, which HAS the receipt poking out of the box, and hands it to me.)

Employee: “Okay, have a nice weekend!”

Me: *confused as I hold the cash up* “Uh, don’t you want me to pay for this?”

Employee: *deer in headlights look* “Oh, my God. You have no idea how glad I am that you pointed that out.”

Me: *hands him the money* “Heh. Yeah, and I had the receipt, too.”

Employee: “Yeah, thanks for pointing that out to me. I really appreciate that. Have a nice night!”

Me: “Thanks. You, too!”

(I legit could’ve walked out of there with free pizza with a receipt as legal “proof” saying I’d paid. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t at least think about it, I mean, come on. Who wouldn’t want free pizza? That said, I figured he might get in trouble for it.)
