Today in the worst thing that's ever happened to this person EVER:
To the idiots at the downtown pizza place who refused service to my hungry 5 year old: When I asked to have a slice of cheese pizza from the pie freshly pulled from the oven, instead of the crusty, obviously ready for the compost heap, single slice of cheese pizza left on the counter, I was informed that it was against your policy. According to your company, you were required to sell the "old" piece before you could serve the fresh pizza. It floored me! Never mind health department regulations on food handling and holding for service! "It wouldn't be fair to the other customers" and "if we did that for you, then everyone would want fresh slices and we would never be able to sell the old ones" were two excuses that the MANAGER gave when asked why on earth she refused to sell the fresh one.
Poor hungry 5-year-old! Can you imagine his face as his mom argued with the pizza slinger? (I bet he started digging crusts out of the garbage can.) Do you have a rant or confession to share with the world? Send it to the I, Anonymous Blog—where... think of the starving children!!
