I was in the mood for pizza tonight. Although we cook at home almost every night of the week I just didn’t want to muster up the energy to make something this evening. I wanted to be lazy and let someone else make my dinner. I wanted a big slice of pizza.
I ordered carry-out and picked up the pizza and some chicken fingers from the Papa John’s store just a mile or so from our house. As soon as I brought it inside I opened the lid and noticed the grease. I could see the dark shadow on the cardboard just beside the crust. I lifted a slice and sure enough a large pizza shaped grease triangle appeared before me.
I thought about calling the store to complain but I figured it would do me no good. College students work at our local pizza joints and they could care less if you are unhappy with your order. I did write an email to the company’s headquarters, but I honestly don’t expect them to refund my money or compensate me for the bad meal.
It’s funny, I contemplated ordering a pizza for a full twenty minutes. When I cook at home I typically make healthy meals and I knew I didn’t really need to eat a slice of greasy pizza for dinner. Perhaps, the arrival of inedible food was a sign that I should stick with a more nutritious meal plan the next time I feel too lazy to make dinner.
