I'm not paying that much

So on the way home I was trying to think of what I wanted to eat for dinner. Seeing that I had nothing at home, that wasn't going to work out too well for me. So the thought of pizza came to mind. Beer? Humm...pizza and beer does go real well good together.

So there I was. I was one of "them". The ones on the freeway talking on their cell phone. I ordered pizza at just the right time so that I should be able to just go in on my way home and pick it up. Oh and the beer.

I call and I get this, "Thanks for calling. Please hold." Gee like I get much of a choice.

...holding...
...crappy music.....
...holding on to what?...

Ok, three min goes by and I hang up. That is just too long to be on hole while driving home for pizza. Then call back.

"Thanks for calling. Please hold."
"Nope, I already been on hold for 5 min."
"sorry about that I'm real busy."
(puts me on hold)
...about 2 sec later...
(someone else picks up the line)
blah blah blah I give her my order.
Medium one topping and an order of chicken kickers.
My total is $18 and change. Fain enough, it'll be ready in 15-20 min. Sweet that will work out just fine.

(15-20 min later)
I find a place to park. go inside and find out that it's not ready yet. No biggie, it happens. So I'm just standing around waiting. They tell me two more min, so I go out to my car and get my phone. Still no biggie. But while I'm standing around I take a look at the menu. Well number 2 is a large one topping with chicken kickers for $16. Well holy flying fuck batman! Lets see what we got here:

  • Med one topping and chicken kickers -- $18
  • Large one topping and chicken kickers -- $16

Does that look right to you?

I didn't think so.

So with me being the ass that I can be. I'm not paying $18 for my mean anymore.

(two min later)

I get my pizza, and she tells me that I owe you $18.

I ask why the larger pizza is cheaper.

"well the large is on special"
"It's not that hard to tell me that the large is cheaper over the phone" (as a make a phone out of my thumb and pinkie because I'm smooth like that)
"well do you want to cancel your order?"

(now I know they can't reuse this food, 'cause it's already made and all that good stuff. I'll just go down to pizza hut or something. Again no biggie)

"yeah, or charge me the $16"

Total cost was $16.27

Pizza + Chicken + beer = best bachelor dinner in the world!

Sounds like a good meal, but you could have gotten two cans of Spaghettios for $3 bucks. Spaghettios go pretty good with beer but they also go great with milk. Depends who you ask though.
