The real question is that they say the Coke is worth $27,500...is that wholesale or retail?

Because $27.5k for a kilo is a rip off for a dealer...unless it is absolutely pure-but even then you'd have to sell $200 balls to double your $ (and who wants to go through all that risk just to double your $?)

But being worth $27.5k at retailer level (=street value, about $100 a ball) is a really good deal for the consumer.

I think these guys are short changing their haul.

/Not that I would know anything about that.

Kibbler: CSB.  I know a certain slacker, who could have had college paid for him, and he could be starting a career now, but he decided that things like learning and work were too much...work...anyway, the only job he held down in the first two years after high school was working part-time, for money under the table, for a Chinese joint that made deliveries.  I was pretty sure, based on his past arrest record, and his very close brush with a long prison term, and his unwillingness to describe what he did other than, "You know, just stuff, whatever they need" that there were illegal things going on, and I suspected that it was drugs.  Then the owner of the business suddenly disappeared one day. It came out that he fled the country and went to Hong Kong.  Never heard anything definite, but I'm pretty sure this dumbass slacker, who if arrested would have had pending felonies come back on top of the new ones, and would have spent ten years in prison, was delivering drugs.  Probably making what seemed like a lot of money to him, probably thinking, yeah, this is the life, good cash and I don't even have to work for it.  I can sleep until noon, which is my life goal.  What are the odds I'll get busted?  Just because the local police have arrested me before, and the court has told me, you're now on our list, we're going to nail you again, and there won't be any "second chance" programs when we do.

He was a part of my ongoing adult education:  some people are too stupid to know not to keep sticking their burned finger into the candle flame.  Some people feel a bullet whiz right by their ear, and the best reaction they can do is grin and continue to dance in the line of fire.

PizzaJedi81: One time, not only did I get stiffed, which I didn't mind, but they were mouthy and rude to me, and obviously had every intention of trying to NOT pay for their pizza. So...the police may or may not have gotten an anonymous call regarding a smell of pot coming from a certain address.


I had to exit a place in a hurry once.  Five guys, I think they were on acid.  To cut out a lot of tedious detail, after some bizarre, vaguely threatening verbal abuse, one guy leaned over to write a check.  Another came up behind him and, for reasons unknown to me, shoved him so hard that he lunged forward and cracked his head on a corner of the wall.  (I mean, CUH-RAKKK.)  He stood up and looked at me, dazed, his eyes all glazed over.  Apparently he thought I did it.  (Because it totally makes sense for me to assault you while you're trying to pay me.)  And then things got *really* ugly.  I backed out without payment or pizza, but with my empty coke rack (a formidable weapon) held in front of me.  They slammed the door so hard behind me I'm surprised it didn't fly off.  Lesson:  not even one step inside the door unless the customer is a little old grandma with her grandkids clustered around her.

Went back and told the owner about it, who didn't seem to care (thanks, Kris, you're a swell guy).  Once I got off work that night, around 3 AM, I made sure to call their number.  Took about 15 rings but somebody picked up.  Click.  Hope it pissed them off.  Hope they've thought back on that night and felt awful about it ever since.

Outside of that, the only dangerous crap I had to contend with was the occasional two or three guys who would call out, as I walked up to a building, "Hey, bring that pizza over here, we're hungry," and when I ignored them, "Yo, I said bring that pizza over here, farker, before we kick your ass" to which I would just say, "You want it, you come over and take it from me" and walk on.  Never went any further than that.

One chick bit me on the knee once, but that's another story.

You know, because once or twice wasn't enough.

For drugs of course. If you go to a better pizza place you're too busy selling legit pizzas so you work at some place like Papa Johns so most of your business is actually drug dealing.

ComicBookGuy: You know, I actually DID remember who was a good tipper (lots of repeats) and would deliver to them earlier in my sorties than those who didn't tip.

I wish you'd tell the guys at the pizza places near ME this wisdom!

/ALWAYS a good tipper, even when I have to return the pizza b/c the idiot driving put the two-liter pop on top of the box (lovely) and delivered to me after driving around with it for a couple of hours.
//Around here, there's "retribution" if you forget to tip well.

Kibbler:

Since we're trading stories, I'm pretty sure I once delivered to a hotel where a porn shoot or something like it was going on. The guy barely cracked open the door, and only had a $100 bill to pay for his $12 order.

It was another situation where I thought drugs were involved, but I was too creeped out to call the cops that time.

lesliessexxy: PizzaJedi81: ComicBookGuy: You know, I actually DID remember who was a good tipper (lots of repeats) and would deliver to them earlier in my sorties than those who didn't tip.

I had a guy who always ordered online and included the tip when he ordered. His usual order came to $12.65. His tip was always $0.35. His order was always last, no matter what.

His girlfriend would usually tip about a dollar, which, considering certain factors, wasn't bad.

Betcha know what those factors were.

Blackness?

/NTTAWTT
/back when I was a server, there was always a certain group of people who would make my tip whatever the change rounded to the nearest dollar was.  $0.65 on a $50.35 bill was the last straw.


I know I'm crapping all over this thread, but seriously, I delivered more $50 orders with zero tip than I can remember.  If it was college students, they never, ever gave a tip, whether it was $5.95 ("I want the nickel back") or $50.  I remember once when some place ordered, like, 100 pizzas for an event.  Three of us delivered them.  Not only was their no tip, the owner decided that we shouldn't get the usual 6% commission (my hourly rate was something like $1.85 an hour, so that 6% was effectively all I got paid) because it was "too easy."  So we just got the $1.85 an hour.  I had never realized before just what a colossal dick he was.  On the spot, I went from Johnny Eager Beaver to Oh Who Gives a Crap, I'l Do It Halfassed, and in fact left not too long after.  Because he eliminated the single chance I had, in three years, to make a fast $20 (if that).  That's some mighty fine business management, Lou.

Working my ass off in frequently unpleasant conditions, making next to nothing, and then getting screwed over by the owner whenever he saw a chance to keep his hands on an extra $20 probably had something to do with the formation of my political views.

When I lived in Lubbock and worked at a Papa John's out there, there was a regular order or 40 pizzas...that's like four 10s. It was to a private school, and I had to deliver it down two flights of stairs and at the other end of a very long room. Always took me three trips and I always set up their order for them. And yet, I would always recieve a $4 tip. That's right...ten cents a pizza. And since they were a regular ordered, and I was the opening driver, I couldn't not take it. Hated the hell out of it.

Well, yes, but sometimes...ya know what? I'm not even going to get into the whole "Local Joint" vs "National Chain" debate again.

Suffice it to say that while, yes, better pizza can be found in Brooklyn easier than finding STDs at a porn convention, people will still order from a chain.

Sometimes it's because the Chain can offer a lower price, sometimes it's that the local joint, while delicious, is kinda scuzzy inside.


That's pretty much it.

Depends on the neighborhood, but mostly yes.

Some places in Queens are dry areas.  Also Staten Island, I am sure has some dry spots.  But generally New York city is covered with greasy deliciousness

PizzaJedi81, et al. (current or former delivery guys)

Yaaaay, pie delivery CSB time!

I worked at a very shady delivery place in high school.  Our biggest client base was the Marine Air Station (MCBH Kaneohe for those keeping score).  Anywhoo, the owner decided that when we had our mid-afternoon lull, I should hit the base and collect on bounced checks.

It usually went well.  Most dudes were pretty abashed, and, as I was willing to take a partial payment, they were generally OK with things.

Eventually I found myself in a room full of very intoxicated Infantry guys who began debating the notion of bouncing me off the walls a few times rather than pony up.  Fortunately for me, I had checked in with the Duty NCO, who was waiting outside and heard it all.

Long story short, the MP's on that base have the quickest reaction time I've ever seen from law enforcement.  Saved my butt (and face, arms, etc.).

Not that long ago I was delivering for Papa John's in the evenings as a way to make some extra cash.

It was always welcome when someone didn't have tip money but offered to smoke me out to some bud instead.

At least it meant I didn't have to smoke my own.

I'd gladly shell out $30 a couple times a month for a really good delivery pizza, but the industry has gone from high quality to cheap-n-fast.  So now I make frozen Red Baron or Home Run Inn pizzas.  I won't claim they're great, but they're way better than the cheapie frozen pizzas, a lot cheaper than Rosati's or Papa John's, and (to me) just as good.

PizzaJedi81: lesliessexxy: Blackness?

Nope. Hm...how to put this. The hallways smelled of curry.


Same thing if the hallways smell of buffalo. Although more than a few would ask for their $0.21 back too. The ghetto of Saskatoon was a lousy place to be a pizza boy, although the rich neighborhoods tipped no better.

CSB: For the two years I delivered pizza in high school there as guy with a standing order every Friday at 8pm: Medium Peperoni and Mushroom, two cans of Coke, and stop @ the Macs on the corner for a pack of smokes. It would come out to just under $20 (a brand name 25 was $6) and he always gave me $30. My manager liked me so I usually got the delivery, which was nice considering minimum wage was $5/hr at the time and I made little more than that.

I worked for Domino's in the Seattle area (Eastside) years ago.  Once I had three orders with me on a run, and while I was delivering the first one, the other two somehow disappeared out of the car.  I didn't actually see anyone removing the pizzas, so I couldn't prove anything.

Fast forward to a year later.  We got an order from that same house, and I told the manager what had happened the last time I delivered there.  I took their order, then politely told them that one of our drivers had been robbed there, so we wouldn't deliver, so when could we expect them to pick up a to-go order?

Not surprisingly, they canceled the order.

I've always called it "Papa's John" pizza.
