Time Is Relative The Closer You Get To Pizza

, , , , | Right | August 26, 2019

(I go into an internationally popular pizza place — who used to advertise the pizza would be ready in 30 minutes or you’d get it free — to collect an order I made online. As I open the door, I hear a man and woman talking.)

Man: “You should get it for free… See if they’ll give it to you for free!”

Woman: “Yeah, this is ridiculous.”

(The cashier calls the woman’s name and the woman goes to collect her pizza.)

Woman: “This is ridiculous. I ordered this over an hour and a half ago. I should get it for free.”

Cashier: “I’m sorry about the wait, ma’am.”

Woman: “You should be! This should be free! I ordered this at 6:00 pm and it’s 7:30 pm.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, our computer system received your order at 6:55 pm and—”

Woman: “That’s still an hour wait!”

Cashier: “I can see what I can do, but you got the dessert sampler and that does take extra time to make.”

Woman: “Oh, no! Forget about it.”

(The woman stormed out and I noticed the man chuckling. My name was called and I got my pizzas. Others who were waiting started to complain. As I walked out I heard the cashier say, “She ordered two pizzas online…” — a small order, and online processes faster. I got to the car and noticed it was only 7:20 pm.)
