Horror In Canterbury: Pizza Hut Turns To Pizza Hell For Pregnant Diner

by | 28th, November 2011

LOCAL News of The Day: The Canterbury Star reports on the Pizza Hut pizza horror:

When Redwood man Rick Baker’s pregnant girlfriend told him she was craving pizza last week he took to the phone straight away- ordering two large pizzas from Pizza Hut Northwood. However, the fast food giant rang back 20 minutes later and said the pizzas could not be delivered for a further hour-and-a-half because the store had no delivery drivers.

The story is headlined:

Frustration as pizza chain fails to deliver

Reporter Anna Turner relates Rick’s words:

“It was 4pm and they said the pizza couldn’t come until 5.30pm because there was no-one to drop it off. We’d already waited for 20 minutes and my girlfriend was getting hungry. They asked if I still wanted the pizza. I told them that I didn’t want it anymore.”’

Turner then adds, bizarrely:

The Pizza Hut employee then offered Mr Baker a discount of $4. He declined the offer, saying he no longer wanted the pizzas.

Those are Canterbury dollars.

The story ends on a high:

After the incident, Mr Baker rang Hell Pizza, who had pizzas to him within 30 minutes.

Says a full Mr Baker:

“It was quick and it was delicious. I’m not going to go back to Pizza Hut. It was rubbish. What is the world coming to when you can’t even get a pizza delivered from Pizza Hut?”

We’re all doomed!
