Alright, so I had decided today would be pizza lunch day, and thought I'd get a medium pizza from Donatos (Ohio-only I think). I call the number I got via Google (they auto-locate the nearest place for you), and asked for a medium pizza, 1/2 beef mariachi and 1/2 pepperoni. The conversation went something like this :

"I'd like to order a medium pizza please, 1/2 beef mariachi, 1/2 pepperoni"

"Uhm, I can do a 1/2 beef and 1/2 pepperoni"

"Oh"

"Yeah"

"Well, are you out of mariachi sauce?"

"No, this is Dominos" (slightly annoyed tone)

"Oh, well. Uhm, what's your closest equivalent?" (this is like calling an Apple store and ordering a Surface Pro - I must have stupidly googled Dominos)

"I think they use jalapeno"

"Okay, can you do 1/2 beef, jalapeno, mushroom, and 1/2 pepperoni?"

"Sure can do. That'll be 10.75. 12-15 minutes"

So I drive over and the guy who answered the phone greets me. I notice they have a 3-topping large pizza special for 7.99. You don't get it for the medium, go figure! I mused about this aloud trying to break the awkwardness (which may partly have been my imagination). He said he could ring up my pizza for 7.99 for me. Nice of him I thought. I had already taken out 13 bucks in change, and I took a dollar out and gave him 12. Overall I saved a dollar and he got a nice 50% tip (not a big amount obviously on such a small amount).

"You got some crushed peppers for me?"

"Sure" (and he gives me about 7-8 packets).

Lots of bro-camaraderie at this point, something that can only work between a programmer and a pizza guy I guess. Well, that's all I have. The pizza was good. And no, I don't really know how to give you your 3 minutes back.
