10 Things Your Pizza Delivery Guy Wants To Tell You
They Know When You're Prank Calling
Pizza delivery is not a service to be taken for granted. After all, these people are the knights of parmesan, bringing us cheesy, meaty goodness at all hours of the day. So maybe it's time we treated them like the heroes they really are.
Most of us have no clue what happens before, during or after a pizza delivery order, yet we still expect our pepperoni to be bubbling on our doorstep within the hour.
Unfortunately, sometimes it just isn't that simple. Here are 10 things your pizza guy would love to tell you before your next order.
They Remember Bad Tips - The standard tip for a pizza delivery should be 10 - 20 percent of the order total. Tip $3 on a $100 order and you can bet that the next time you want pizza you're going to wait awhile.
They Know Prank Calls - Despite how hilarious it sounds, placing an order for 20 double pepperonis for Mr. Seymour Butts is just a waste of time. While you're giggling, everyone else has to wait longer for their pizza.
Be Polite - They may be working through wind and rain for minimum wage, but pizza delivery drivers are still human beings. Treat them with courtesy and they will treat you with linguica.
Your Neighborhood Scares Me - If you live on the wrong side of the tracks, don't expect a driver to be comfortable carrying hot pizza and cash to your house late at night. Not unless there's a decent tip to make it worth it.
Closing Time - It's been a long day, they've worked for 10 hours and all they want is to go home and wash off the old cheese smell. So, please, don't order 10 extra large deluxe pizzas 30 seconds before closing time.
