Driving 20 minutes each way for a $7 pizza
« on: December 21, 2015, 11:51:11 AM »
A Christmas gift I'd ordered finally showed up at Wal-mart. Unfortunately I had no reason to go into town before Christmas other than to pickup this gift, so we made the trip yesterday. While we were in town I thought we'd take advantage of a Papa Johns coupon code for 50% off one of their pizzas. As we picked up the item at Wal-mart, I heard something rattle in the box. So I opened it there in the store and, sure enough, it was broken so we returned it immediately. It was a ship to store item so there was no way we could get a replacement that day. In the end, we drove 20 minutes each way into town for a $7 pizza. :(

Still cheaper than paying for delivery.

Most places around my house deliver for free (other than tip).... (though occasionally, they do have a minimum order of around $10)

I guess? 20 miles round trip and 60+ minutes of my time. I'd have gladly paid the delivery guy!

Pizza is worth it at any price. I'll entertain no counter arguments on this point.
