    Papa John's Pizza is slow!
    Over 2 hours now since I ordered my pizza... the store just said it was on its way 48 minutes ago.

    Did my delivery driver die?

    this has to be the best "anything goes" topic I have seen yet.. I am tempted to start a "paper or plastic" thread.

    Unfortunately it was ordered online ==> paid for online ==> no way to not pay...

    Hah... quite the opposite. Maybe I was hoping that since OSX has made almost everything else faster (except burning DVD's... that's a whole 'nother issue) that it would make my pizza get here faster. No such luck. 2 hours and 18 minutes for my pizza to go 3 miles. Worst service ever.

    I like the "Paper or plastic" Thread idea. I work at a grocery store, and plastic is definitely the way to go Although it's not as environmentally friendly I guess. I just hate bagging in paper bags. Paper bags are for old people and women that have <5 kids and hate the world.

    paper and plastic.

    paper takes more energy to make, but is recyclable and easily biodegradable. and typically i can get out of a store with fewer of them than plastic bags and my groceries don't end up scattered all over the back of my forester.

    plastic takes little energy, and i've heard they're recyclable to some extent, though i'm not sure how widespread the ability to recycle plastic bags is. thy're also easily reused for numerous other applications (garbage bags, lunch bags, pooper scoopers, etc). i actually still use the bag i got from the apple store three months ago as a backup tucked away in my messenger bag i take to work (for lunch and/or leftovers to take home).

    processes to make both are pretty dirty.

    i'm really considering buying a couple/few cloth tote bags for all my shopping.

    o.t... i'm trying to lay off pizza. and i used to drive for dominos when i was in college, and i don't think we ever sent something out that was anywhere near an hour late, much less two.
    ask them for some coupons on top of the free pizza (preferably to another pizza place, something that actually tastes like pizza. )

    With ten years of grocery under my belt. I can say that you can fill paper bags faster and it hold more.

    But you have to see that packaging has changed. Now there are all these weird-shaped items that don't fit well in paper bags. Like those crazy Uncle Ben's instant rice packets. Thise don't go very well in paper bags. Paper bags are good for square things. Plus they cost the store about 100x as much as plastic. I will give it to you that they hold more though.

    it's an art.

    kind of like fitting the most dishes in a dishwasher, or packing a trunk or the back of a wagon with the most stuff for a vacation. i could probably fit half my house in 5 paper grocery bags if i really tried.

    it's the original tetris.

    hasn't it been over 36 hours since the order. Can you claim a missing persons/pizza? Or did it come?
