Papa John’s Pizza Sucks

papa-johns.jpgAfter going to church on Sunday, cooking breakfast, and going to the gym, I did not feel up to cooking that evening. So I decided on Papa John’s since Pizza Hut doesn’t deliver to my neighborhood – I live in B.F.E.

So, I order online and receive my confirmation email informing me that the delivery will be “approximately 30-40 minutes. COOL! No problem. Forty minutes came and went so I called the local P.J. restaurant and the conversation goes a little like this:

Matt: Papa John’s may I help you?

Chocl8t: Yes. I placed an order online about 45 minutes ago and was wondering how long before I receive my pizza.

Matt: Well, its only been 42 minutes.

Chocl8t: Uh, excuse me?

Matt: Its only been 42 minutes, ma’am and the delivery time is an hour.

Chocl8t: The email confirmation stated a delivery time of 30-40 minutes and 42 minutes means you’re late. 42 minutes may not be long to you but for me it’s long as hell cause I’m hungry you condescending a$$hole of a rotted pig! Cancel the dayum order!

Why people? Why? What happened to GOOD customer service? Papa John’s will NEVER, EVER get another dime out of my pocket.

whole-foods.jpgI love Whole Foods MarketLOVE ‘EM so this isn’t really a slam on the place. I particularly like the smoked meats and I regularly purchase the smoked chicken wings. However, on EVERY occasion I’ve done so, I have had to pluck feathers out of the cooked chicken! WTH?!! I can understand the concept of “fresh“, “all natural” food but isn’t this taking it a bit too far? I mean, really. What’s next? Will I have to ring the dayum chicken’s neck on my next visit? Okay, that might be taking it too far but you get the idea and hopefully they will too since I’ve submitted an online complaint. Lets see if they respond.


All I can say is WOW!! Kudos to Whole Foods for not only responding but for doing so within less than 24 hours. Read the email below:
