Domino’s Pizza Tracker Saved A Person’s Life!

Published

on

I came across this story last week, and thought it was worth reposting for those who might have missed it. Enjoy!

This is a story of why dating bipolar girls is not a good idea and how the Domino’s Pizza tracker saved my life

I have always been on the fence when it comes to Pizza Hut Vs. Dominos. I don’t eat enough pizza from either to really have a concrete answer of which one makes a better pie. I can tell you one solid truth… As my last relationship ended and the lies, scandals and deceptions came out, after all was said and done, my psycho ex girlfriend did teach me one VERY important thing:

ALWAYS choose Domino’s over pizza hut.

I had been having trouble with my now EX-girlfriend for quite awhile, I won’t go into details, but let’s just say she went crazy. I thought, simple: I’ll just break it off.

Wrong.

One Friday night, around 8:00pm, after a long week of work and incessant phone calls/psychotic voicemails from the unbalanced EX, I decided I was going to stay in, which one any weekend night is abnormal for me. Usually on weekend nights that I am in, I usually am cool with a movie, a 6 pack and a pizza. I had been ordering from Pizza Hut the last few times, but after a constant bombardment with Domino’s “WE’VE CHANGED OUR SHIT, I SWEAR WE’RE AWESOME NOW” ad campaign, I decided to give it a shot.

Around 8pm, I went online to order my pizza. I built a modest 2 topping medium pizza, and placed my order. You have to love how far we have come in the delivery pizza world.

Immediately afterwards, I was introduced to the piece of a software that would save my neck.

The Pizza Tracker.

Pizza tracker? Fuck yeah, the pizza tracker. If you don’t know what the pizza tracker is, then get your ass online right now and order a pizza from Domino’s. It’s the equivalent of a loading bar on a web browser, except at the end of the loading you get a delicious pizza.

This is where the night got interesting.

I am on my couch, one eye on “Parks and Rec” the other on the pizza tracker displayed on my lap top that joined me on the couch.

We had just entered stage 2: Prep.

KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK!

For a split second I thought, “woh that was fast,” I put my order in 10 minutes ago and pizza tracker says it’s still in stage 2.

By the end of my thought, the door swung open.

Guess who.

Yep, it was my psychotic EX. Knife in hand, she starts threatening to do some pretty awful things. I try to stand up, she freaks. I stay on the couch and attempt to calm her down. She goes into a hysterical rant about us getting back together, ya right, and I glance at the pizza tracker.

Stage 3. Bake (Juan is putting your order in the oven)

She goes on while all I can think is GO JUAN GO!!!! GET THAT SHIT IN THE OVEN!

I try to calm her down, I stand up and she freaks out and tells me “SIT THE FUCK DOWN!!”

She continues on her violet outburst and I tell her we can work things out hoping to get her to calm down. It’s no use.

I decide I need to try and get to my phone. I inconspicuously try to look for my cell phone. Dammit! I left it my room. I am screwed. I am dead. The pizza man will get blamed for this! Oh, the poor pizza boy will be wrongfully blamed and get life in prison for what this unstable bitch is going to do to me.

STAGE 4! BOX!

FUCK YEAH! They are boxing up my pizza. Get your ass over here!

She continues on for another 5 minutes. Trying to make eye contact, glancing at the pizza tracker every second she looks away.

Stage 5! DELIVERY: Alejandro is delivering your pizza.

GOD SPEED ALEJENDRO!!! MY LIFE AND YOUR FREEDOM RELY ON THIS!

Knowing that the Alejandro is on the way, I try and just keep her talking, but the more she talks the more enraged she gets. I try to interupt, but that just makes things worse.

It’s been 10 minutes, Alejandro should be here any time.

She continues, she is yelling at the top of her lungs about the things we could have been. I am still banking that Alejandro will be here any second and save the day.

10 more minutes go by.
Alejandro GET YOUR ASS IN GEAR!

SHE IS OFFICIALLY FREAKING THE FUCK OUT. She puts the knife up to her wrist and then takes it away. I am panicking. Where the fuck is Alejandro! Pizza tracker tells me we’re still in stage 5. FUCK YOU PIZZA TRACKER , YOU’VE BEEN IN STAGE 5 FOR 25 MINUTES!!!! I will never order from Domino’s again!!! After this thought I immediately think to myself, I will be dead, so I will probably never order another pizza again.

Right then, the cops come in. At gunpoint they calm her down and obtain the knife. Alejandro had shown up to the door wide open and saw psycho with the knife and went back to his ’98 Honda Accord and called the cops. Domino’s pizza literally saved my life. They should change the name from the pizza tracker to the savior tracker.

Alejandro is the true definition of a hero. In a way, Alejandro is the 5th ninja turtle. He showed up, accessed the situation, didn’t panic, and saved my ass from the bad guys. Oh yeah, and he brought a fucking excellent pizza too.

    How did the pizza tracker save that dudes life? Even if he had ordered Pizza Hut, the driver would have gotten to the door and saw the exact same thing and hopefully called the police.

      because the fact that there was a tracker he knew how long to talk her through, he had a reason to get out of this, he saw hope at the end and he decided to work towards it. without the tracker he wouldn’t have been able to think the same way other than about the girl and might have done something horribly wrong too early on. i think this was just a lucky story and shouldn’t be the deciding factor on which pizza place you choose bc tbh i love the pasta from pizza hut but if you have a crazed family member or special someone dominos might be the correct choice. the guy who wrote this will probably only ever eat at dominos again

        So if there wasn’t a tracker he would have what? Just let her stab him? He talked because that’s what you do when a crazy person is threatening you with a knife and you can’t get away.

    Two sentences in and I’m told that people shouldn’t date me because I’m bipolar, so clearly all bipolars are like this chick. I wish we used that logic everywhere else! A Christian straight male killed someone? Clearly nobody should ever date this type of person again!

    • david

      you sound angry… kinda like the chick from the story….

      basically this

    • nikkie

      December 15, 2012 at 10:12 pm

      Thank you Hannah, I thought the same exact thing. I’m also bipolar, and I’ve never had any murderous tendencies as stated in the story. I’m pretty sure that girl had a few other issues besides just being bipolar.

    • Zoe

      December 19, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      Yeah I’m also bipolar and this just damaged my feelings. It’s really hurtful to assume all girls with bipolar disorder are crazy when most of us are stable. The girl in this story obviously had something else wrong with her and it seriously isn’t cool of him to say “never date a bipolar girl.” Screw the guy whose story this is. Not okay.

      • Joe

        February 3, 2013 at 7:22 pm

        For the record, it says it isn’t a good idea to date a bipolar girl in that first sentence. Much like it isn’t a good idea to smoke or dip. You know there are some benefits, but their is that definite possibility it could be very bad for you.

    • Marie Kathryn

      January 24, 2014 at 12:33 pm

      I strongly agree and it was the first thing I noticed.. why does bipolar have such a stigma about it?? because of things like the first sentence of this ‘story.’ This girl clearly has other issues going on and needs to seek help. I’ve had bpd and bipolar disorder all 21 years of my life and have never once even hit someone, let alone gone this crazy. and I’ve never taken meds for any of it. Before you blame this girl’s mental disorder, maybe you should look at what you did to make her feel this upset.

    I honestly can’t tell if this is a joke or not. I really can’t. I’m sure everyone will be up the ass over Domino’s soon, though; forgetting that they support rape, physical and mental assults, racism, and a whole slew of other things. This all had NOTHING to do with the company or the pizza tracker – it was ONE good person who when faced with the choice of running or helping, chose to help. Also “dating bipolar girls is not a good idea”. You know what else isn’t a good idea? Being an asshole, like you are.

    This is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a long time & to the people who take offense sheesh! Learn to widen up your mind & have fun! Just because he was talking about her & saying bipolar doesn’t mean anything. it’s about HER not YOU

    This was awesome, you bipolar girls commenting on this need to calm down. Take your meds and order some Domino’s.

    Great story bro!

    Not bad. Being a veteran I’ve heard and seen some wild shit but this ranks right up there.

  15. elle

    February 7, 2014 at 1:14 am

    as cool as this story and domino’s is, the shit you said about a mentally unstable person who is clearly in need of professional help makes you look like a massive dick. you do not call her an “unstable psycho bitch” and end a relationship because you couldn’t handle her when “she just went crazy” and act like you deserve a fucking medal because of it; you should get her the help she can’t get herself first; not only did you put yourself in danger, you could have potentially put anyone in her way in danger, including herself. seriously fuck you, you ignorant prick.

    alejandro’s cool though.

    elle,
    thank you for saying it! a person you are in an intimate relationship with has a psychotic break and you think ‘easy, I’ll end it’?? not get her help or consider that in that moment yes she is unstable and this may indeed have consequences for you. no wonder that to you she goes from girlfriend, who you once cared deeply for I assume, to ‘bitch’….

    good on Alejandro, otherwise go fuck yourself.

Chick-fil-A Is America’s Favorite Fast-Food Restaurant For The Third Year In A Row

Published

on

Chick-Fil-A

When it comes to fast-food restaurants, Chick-Fil-A reigns supreme for the third year in a row, that according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index’s annual study, which surveys 22,500 Americans on their experiences at chain restaurants.

Yes, Chick-Fil-A has had their fair share of controversy over the years, but that clearly hasn’t affected consumers’ love of their delicious chicken sandwiches. The ACSI study polled 22,500 Americans on their experiences at chain restaurants, rating them from 0 to 100 in categories such as food quality, restaurant cleanliness and layout, and waitstaff behavior. Those scores are averaged out to come up with an overall score.

With a score of 87, Chick-Fil-A was the winner, beating runner-up Panera Bread by six points. As for the other giant chicken purveyor KFC, they slipped 1 point down to 77. Time to step up your game, Colonel Sanders..

Just imagine how high Chick-Fil-A would rank if they were open on Sundays. 🙂

Domino’s Celebrates Summer With 50% Off All Pizzas Through July 15

Published

Domino's Pizza

Spent all your money on fireworks for Fourth of July? Not to worry, because Domino’s Pizza is giving you 50% off all menu-priced pizza ordered online today through July 15th.

Now don’t call your local Domino’s store for this deal, because it is only available for online orders, which includes Domino’s website and their various mobile apps. Heck, you can even text or tweet your order to them, it’s crazy how many ways you can order a pizza from them!

Not at home? Not a problem! Customers who are ordering delivery to a Domino’s Hotspot may also take advantage of the 50% off menu-priced pizza deal.

Sadly, this deal doesn’t include any of their non-pizza items (wings, pasta, etc), which are all pretty awesome in their own right. But for me, it’s all about their pan pizza, which is freaking amazing. Never had it before? What are you waiting for, order one (or two) for dinner tonight and prepare to have your taste buds blown away!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve gotta go place an order for a pizza. 🙂

Eating Our Way Through Lockhart, The Barbecue Capital of Texas

Published

on

BrisketU BBQ Pit Trailer

If there’s one thing I love, it’s BBQ. But here in the Northeast, finding a good barbecue joint is pretty much impossible. But down in Texas, there is amazing ‘cue everywhere you turn. Heck, there’s even a Salt Lick BBQ in the Austin and Dallas airports, so you can get your BBQ fix the moment you touch down in Texas!

So when our friends at Chevrolet invited me down to Houston to join them for a BBQ road trip to Lockhart, Texas (the Barbecue Capital of Texas), behind the wheel of some rugged Chevy Silverado and Colorado trucks, it took me exactly 0.0005 seconds to say YES.

The Gator Pit of Texas

Our adventure started in Houston, at the world-famous Gator Pit of Texas, which was featured on Discovery’s King of the Grill. This small metal fabrication shop makes custom-made, hand-fabricated BBQ pits that are second to none, and award-winning pit master Ritch Robin was kind enough to take time out of his day to give us a tour of their operation.

When it comes to Texas BBQ, it’s all about the offset smoker, and cooking that meat (brisket, pork shoulder, ribs, etc) low and slow. Ritch gave us a behind-the-scenes look into how BBQ pits are built, what makes his pits so desirable, and how customers can customize their pits to the smallest detail.. Like adding a Texas shaped brake light, because why not?

The Gator Pit of Texas

You don’t see workmanship like this very often (everything is made by hand, with one person working on your pit from start to finish), and it’s clear to see why there’s a 1+ year waiting list to get one. Needless to say, if you’re serious about barbecuing, you should definitely consider having them build you a custom pit of your own. Pricing starts at $1,200 for an entry-level pit and goes up from there depending on your needs.

After our crash course in barbecue pits, we hopped into our trucks (thank god for A/C, because Houston was HOT!) and set a course for Kyle, Texas, where we would be spending the night. Along the way, I made the obligatory stop at Buc-ee’s, a Texas rest-stop that has become a rite of passage for anyone traveling between Houston and Austin. Trust me, it’s a Texas institution that everyone should experience at least once in their life.

2018 Chevy Colorado Duramax

For this first leg, I was driving a ruby-red Chevy Colorado Duramax. Had I been towing one of the Gator Pits, I would have had no problem, as the Turbo-Diesel engine offers best-in-class towing, with 369 lb-ft of torque and a 7,700 pound towing capacity. This was actually my first time driving a Colorado, and I quite liked the mid-sized pickup. Not everyone needs a full-size pickup, and I could totally see myself driving a Colorado (but make mine a ZR2).

Roughly 2.5 hours later, I finally arrived at the Twin Cabins Hotel, our home for the night. As you can see, this was a rather unique spot for us to spend the night, a Victorian-style country cabin that is off the beaten path, with cows, bulls, and even some mini horses roaming around out back. It’s hard to believe that this place is just 20-30 minutes from Austin.

Twin Cabins Hotel

Once everyone arrived, we embarked on a BBQ cooking class, courtesy of the folks at BrisketU, where we learned from accomplished pitmasters the art of smoking brisket (the toughest piece of beef to master) from start to finish. They showed us how to pick the right brisket, trimming techniques, rubs and prep, wood selection and smoke profiles, starting/managing a firebox, timing the cook, and slicing the end product.

Afterwards, we got to eat all of this amazing food they made for us (brisket, ribs, chicken, and more), and everything was delicious. And I’ve gotta say, after seeing how much time and effort went into preparing this meal, I had a newfound respect for the pitmasters out there. My belly nice and full, I decided to get some sleep so I’d be nice and refreshed for tomorrow’s activities.

The next morning, I had a light breakfast (no reason to fill up when there’s a ton of BBQ ahead of us) before heading to Lockhart. My buddy James wanted to drive the Colorado, so we traded and I took the keys to his Silverado. The ventilated seats were a welcomed addition, as it was still crazy hot, even at 9:30 in the morning.

Then came the tough part, deciding which BBQ joint to hit up first. After consulting with the experts at Google, we decided to start off at Black’s BBQ, which has been in operation since 1932, and is thought to be the oldest barbecue restaurant run by one family in Texas. They’re known for their Brontosaurus-sized “Giant Beef Rib”, so naturally we had to try that, along with the brisket, which is smoked in a most unique way.

OH. MY. GOD. I thought I had experienced great Texas BBQ before, but Black’s just blew my mind. The beef rib (which is insanely huge) is so tender, moist, and delicious. My stomach is growling just thinking about it. And the brisket was perfection, so full of flavor that you don’t even need any BBQ sauce to go with it. My suggestion? Bring some friends, order everything on the menu, and eat it family style.

Next up was Kreuz Market (pronounced “Krites” by the locals), another Texas institution that opened back in 1900 (though it’s only been in this location since 1999). Since Lockhart is all about brisket, I decided to see how theirs stacked up to Black’s. I really enjoyed the black crust of the brisket, which was loaded with flavor, but I thought the meat itself was a little on the dry side. Next time, I’ll have to try their smoked ham, as I hear it’s really good.

Kreuz Market in Lockhart Texas

As you can imagine, I was in a bit of a food coma by now (and it was only 12:15pm), so I hung out here for a bit while I got my second wind. Then I hopped back in the truck and drove over to Chisholm Trail BBQ, which is “where the locals go”. Sadly, my digestive system was crying Uncle by this point, so I just took a quick peek inside before driving off. Amazingly, they even have a drive-thru for those who don’t want to leave the comfort of their A/C.

Overall, Lockhart really lived up to the hype, and it’s no wonder that they hold the official title as the Barbecue Capital of Texas. I wish I could have stayed longer so I could have sampled some more delicious BBQ, but I had a flight back to Philly that I had to catch.

As you can see, if you’re a barbecue enthusiast, you absolutely must come check out the BBQ scene in Lockhart, TX. Come hungry, and bring lots of napkins. 🙂
