Default Pizza Delivery Problem

Saturday night, I called the pizza place I have used for 25 years. Ordered 2 large pizzas. She said it would be $31. I asked her to knock a few bucks off for being a loyal customer for 25 years, asked for super-duper coupon price (just like I always do - and they always comply). She said there was a coupon that would make it $27, and came with a 64 oz soda. I told her OK, but keep the soda. She said No, cant do that. I said just throw the soda in the trash for me then. She said No - can't do that. Finally I asked her to tell the delivery driver to just keep the soda - NOPE! 2 pizzas without a soda will be $31!

WTF? I'm trying to save them a few cents, but they refuse. Told them to stuff it and found a new favorite pizza delivery place.

"HOW DARE YOU MAKE ME TAKE WHAT I PAID FOR?"

So you beg for a discount.
She gives you the discount (that she didn't need to give you) and it even comes with a soda.
Then you get mad when they say you need to keep the soda?

Use it for target practice like Hickock 45.

The person answering the phone was just covering their butt, because for all they know is that you'll call back and complain that you didn't get your soda. I'm not sure why it was so hard for you to just take the soda, or give it to the delivery guy.

No doubt the strategy here was to make this guy go away.

were you essentially asking for a senior discount, because you sound like a crotchety old man. Why do you/people think you deserve a discount just b/c you've eaten there for years?

I've been trying this with my mortgage company. "I've been a customer of yours for 20 years. How about a little discount this time." So far, no luck.

You forgot to tell them another mortgage company was now your favorite.

Sounds like you pretty much screwed yourself. Why not just take the fn soda and dump it out if you don't want it.

If I was on the phone and someone asked me for a discount, I would have had a god laugh and told them to have a nice day.

If you were worried about their bottom line pay the original amount. If you want the deal, take the soda. Hopefully the girl answering the phone hasn't been working at the pizza place for 25 years so she doesn't know what your deal is. Maybe you have ordered 5 pizzas a year for the last 25 years and not deserving of a discount?

First mistake - you should have asked for the super duper NO SODA coupon price!! Lesson learned.

64 oz of soda!! Do people really consume that much crap when eating a pizza? I would bet I don't drink 64oz of soda in two years.

We're not all as wise as you, DB2. Clearly.

Sometimes a customer needs to be fired.
