So it is after moving to Mumbai that I realised how much I love Pizza. It was just another of those pizza-craving-days when I urged my friends to join me for one ANYWHERE. Since they were already going to Phoenix and there’s Domino’s over there, we decided to satiate my Pizza hunger at Dominos.
Ohh that thought of extra cheese extending between my mouth and a pizza slice considerably reduced the levels of patience in me during all the shopping my friends had to do. Little had I known that the crowded Dominos would end up leaving me wondering why it was crowded in the first place in spite of the rather disappointing hospitality.
Well, being welcomed with unwelcoming countenances has been a common experience for me, here in Mumbai. “Does cheese burst option apply to Pizza Mania pizzas?” asked Shivani only to be responded with a nonchalant non-verbal rude mouth gesture. You know that ‘click’ kind of sound that you make while responding in the negative to a question about whether you have finished your work or not? That.
I was kinda past caring and wanted my pizza in front of me. We ordered. It took a good twenty-five minutes for our order to be prepared. Fine. You can wait for a tasty pizza to melt in your mouth at the cost of those minutes and a hole in your pocket (in Dominos’ case), can’t you? I did.
The moment they served the pizzas without ketchup and even a single tissue was the moment when I realised how badly they lacked common sense and etiquette. Man, when somebody orders a cheese burst, tissues are compulsory to catch hold of all the cheese that flows out from the corners of the mouth. But no, these people seemed least bothered in that regard.
Coming to the pizza- Well thankfully, it was good although damn heavy. I wish these Domino’s people were beyond their grumpy faces and impolite hospitality. It would improve their service to a great extent, you know. The tasty pizza saved their asses, though. And to think of it, I think all that haughtiness comes from the scrumptious pizzas lest they be bashed up hard.
