    They’ll replace your pizza for free, if you do carry out, but you drop your pizza on the way back home.

    Very kind, but that’s never happened to me, ever. I’m not convinced that’s much of a thing, at least not enough to make a national ad campaign about it.

    Also, they now have delivery “hot spots” where you can go to, and have them deliver your pizza there... ...rather than where you were before you walked to this deliver hot spot?

    That one, I don’t get. Unless you live in such a shady/dangerous neighborhood that Domino’s refuses to deliver to your house... but if that’s they case, you’re probably not feeling good about getting out and walking to their deliver hot spot either.

    What am I missing?

    (I know I don’t have to ask that - you guys will tell me anyway.)

    Well, they also have a deal where when you order a pizza, they bring you cat vomit on an oily rag tossed in a moist box.

    Didn't they have a commercial talking about how they were paving streets?

    Most millinials can’t afford a house or even rent and simply live where they get a good WiFi signal to social media with people they wouldn’t talk to in person. Dominos delivers the pizza near these wifi hotspots that attract millinials like a lamp attracts mosquitos. The pizza is delivered to them, it’s already paid for and the millinial does not need even acknowledge the delivery person who is on their own phone sending selfies to their social media audience.

    My daughter and her friends had a pizza delivered to their High School at lunchtime a couple of weeks ago.

    Probably for Amazon employees that can’t afford to put a roof over their head.

    This isn’t hyperbole. I have a friend who is on a 6 month contract at Amazon in a technical role and is living in a park near his office. He is a responsible dude, but would need a hot spot if he were to order pizza. (He wouldn’t. He has both taste buds and eats vegetarian.)

    Also, he is in his late 50s, so not a millennial y’all would conveniently look down on.

    The hot spot delivery...I think you nailed it with the neighborhood. As politically incorrect as it is to go with the statistics, if there's a high crime neighborhood I don't want to worry about the odds...

    I've been up in the woods for almost 22 years. This whole issue is fascinating.

    Make your own. This slice is from a 20" pie that cost me $3 to make:

    Yup, that is what we do and nothing better than a homemade pizza coming out of a wood cook stove.:cool:

    However, I am sorta looking forward to drone pizza delivery up here. It'll be like easy clay pigeons.:twisted:

    I always thought the hot spot thing was so pizza could be delivered at the beach, in a park, etc.

    When we got tired of our Cox planes, we blew them out of the air with shotguns. The Tonka trucks went out in a blaze of glory.

    The proper way to eat pizza is in a restaurant. Sit down with a friend or two, start with a carafe of wine, order a pie and wait for it to come out of the kitchen.

    And some of you youngsters can scoff.....but a few of us didn't grow up with a MacDonald's or Subway on every block.....no Domino's or Pizza Hut either. My first experience with pizza was when I was ten or eleven. My family had gone out to eat dinner (a rarity in itself) at an old-fashioned Italian restaurant....red and white checked tablecloths, candles in old chianti bottles, and singing waiters. My dad let me order for myself (after all, I was almost grown) and I spotted something unfamiliar on the menu....."Pizza Pie"......well, I LOVED pie, (apple, cherry, blueberry, etc) and I asked if I could have that. I was served my own cheese pizza, and I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. To y'all who've grown up with pizza, you can have NO idea what an amazing experience your first pizza can be. To this day, if I had to choose only one food for the rest of my life, it would be pizza.....even the NAME is fun......;)
