# 1 Delivery Disasters
09-30-2013, 03:20 PM
So I'm sitting here in my hot house in Texas waiting for the power to be restored because some fool in an 18 wheeler decided to cut through the neighborhood and took out 3 power poles. You ever experienced such an inconvenience? Please share.

I can only imagine the horrors pizza delivery drivers faced when Domino's Pizza had their "Pizza in 30 minutes or it's free!" promotional campaign. Even worse when they had to deliver their pizza to a house which had a large fat orange cat named Garfield...

I wonder though... is it true that some enterprising young individuals did everything they could to slow the delivery drivers down so they could get their pizzas for free?

I delivered pizzas one summer in college. I lived in a small town, so it wasn't too bad except when I had to deliver to one of the hotels on the interstate. You never knew who was going to open the door.

Also, power came back on a few minutes ago. Woo-hoo!!

Yeah; from the delivery side. I used to be a delivery person...

I once got pinned to the side of my vehicle by geese - they would not let me move away from the vehicle so I could make the delivery!
