Pizza for Tea
Last time we went out for a pizza we got this sealed envelope that guaranteed us a prize if we took it to a Pizza Hut in October and one of the servers opened it. So, today we fancied a pizza for tea so we took the envelope with us and went to Pizza Hut. The nearest Pizza Hut had a 25-minute wait for a seat, so we went to the next-nearest Pizza Hut. That only had a 10-minute wait.
Here's the order in which the waitress brought us our stuff:
- Salad bowls and some of the drinks. These arrived about 15 minutes after we ordered, and came together. There were only some drinks, because they'd run out of Orange & Passionfruit J2O.
- The drinks to replace the missing J2Os. These arrived after I'd got my salad, but before I started eating it.
- Cutlery. This came 5 minutes after I pointed out I needed cutlery to eat my salad.
- Pizzas. Two of the three deep pans we ordered arrived.
- Minus pizzas. Another waitress took our pizzas away before we could start eating them.
- Pizzas. The waitress brought us our pizzas back after a 5-minute delay blamed on "the computer crashed".
- The other pizza.
- Pizza plates. No, actually we didn't want to eat with our fingers out of the deep pan, thank you.
- Garlic bread. This starter came after we had finished our pizzas.
- Potato wedges. This other starter came moments after the garlic bread.
- The cookie-dough dessert we had won as our guaranteed prize in the envelope.
- The bill. It included 15p for "donate a cup of rice". Fair enough — that's just 15p less that the waitress got as a tip when I rounded up the total.
Overall, we spent an hour and a half in that Pizza Hut. Maybe next time we'll wait the 25 minutes for a seat in the closer one.
