That Guy’s A Real Pizza Work

, , , , , | Working | June 16, 2021

I’m picking up pizza from a local pizza place. There’s no one inside and no one at the counter, so I ring the bell. I can hear two people arguing in the kitchen. Their conversation is barely intelligible until I hear the following.

Owner: “I DON’T CARE WHAT THE LAW SAYS! I SAY YOU’RE FIRED! GET OUT OF MY RESTAURANT! OUT! NOW!”

A VERY pregnant-looking woman darts out of the kitchen, crying as she storms past me and out the door. The owner follows her out the door, continuing to scream at her for a minute or two before coming back in.

Owner: “Sorry for the delay. You’re here for a pickup?”

Me: “Yes. But what was that all about?”

Owner: “Just putting a lazy whore in her place. Anyway, could I get the name for the order?”

I gave him the order name, paid for my pizzas, and left without saying another word. I never went back, because I wasn’t going to do business with him again after the way he treated that woman and the comment he made about her. Two months later, I was driving past and noticed the pizza place was closed. From what I was told by my friend who works in the same shopping center, the owner lost a wrongful termination lawsuit against the pregnant woman, and he had to shut the business down to pay her damages and legal fees.
