So, I don't just deliver pizzas, I have to do other things like answer the phones. Fun times, indeed.
Just follow me here.
Our busiest times are not dinner, unless it's Friday or Saturday, but lunch times. Businesses and what not. So I get this call one day and the old
lady is totally off her rocker. Trying to get a omelet from a pizza joint. Took me ten minutes just to get her order. At the end, she tells me, and
joke you not, to not send a Mexican as she has had problems with Mexicans.
Ok. Red flags are raised but it's so damned busy I have no way to tell anyone about this insane phone call.
Lucky me gets to deliver her order. I still do not understand what happened.
I get to the door, a outside foyer, whatever you call it, partially filled with trash and gallons of apple juice - full bottles. Next to the door are
three, maybe four, pictures of serviceman in the windows bracketing the door.. What services I couldn't tell you but they were all torn right through
All of them. And torn so perfectly that I could see they were the same pictures but not in any kind of respect. They could have easily been taped
together to make it look somewhat nice and not sun damaged photos but this seemed to somw odd Twilight Zone episode. What the hell do these pictures
Then, I notice the kicker. I swear to you, I am not making this up. the faded, sun drenched note inside the door said this. I have to say this in all
honesty and at the risk of getting banned, at least for a couple of days if the ATS folks decide, "No Niggers or Nigger lovers". Don't know if I can
get away with using that word even in this context but seriously, it has little effect when said as "The N-Word". But, dammit, that was written on
that note and a totally OT digression those who say racism isn't something that doesn't exist, well, there it is right there.
There was seriously something wrong at that house. What the hell was up with those pics? If you are showing respect for those in the military, would
you not just tape the pics together and why were they ALL torn right through the face?
So, when you say the humans are far crazier then the dogs you encounter, I wholeheartedly agree.
We could share so many stories of this type of job, but damn, that was easily the weirdest delivery I have ever taken and I've been doing this for
over twenty years.
