At the beginning it was not awkward at all. I got to the door. Young guy around my age answers. I was about to hand him his food when he asked if I wanted to come in and smoke a joint with his buddies. I said sure and walked in. Mind you, I didn’t have to wear a uniform for this job, so I was just in my regular clothes. We were sitting around smoking and eventually his buddies ask, “how do you know (whatever his name was)?” I said I didn’t and I was just there to deliver the food. Everyone just stared at me and I slowly walked out the door.
Not exactly awkward — but this happened about a month or so ago: It’s about 3:30am (we’re open late as fuck) on a Friday night (Saturday morning, whatever fuck you) and I’m on my last delivery of the night. 2 larges, with a total of about 31 dollars. After knocking for about 2 minutes, this guy, shirtless, armed with some dry puke on his shoulder, stumbles to the door and opens it. Immediately, he starts tilting forward, like he’s going to blow chunks all over me. he turns it into a loogie, turns around, and spits it off the front porch, and starts reaching for the pizzas. “31 bucks, man” I say “Oh shit, right, I gotta pay you” he says. So, he disappears into the house for a good 5 minutes, I check Reddit, he comes back with a 20. he hands it to me, reaches for the pizza boxes again, and I say “31 bucks, man..” he says “can I just get one for the twenty bucks?” and I explain that I’ll have to call the store and ask them what they want me to do. He disappears into the house for yet another 5 minutes, only for him to stumble back to the door and yell “JUST TAKE IT” and slam the door. So, I made 20 bucks and got 2 free pizzas.
Forgot a bottle of soft drink once… told them to give me a minute, jumped into my car, drove around the corner to the store, bought a bottle of soft drink, returned.
