Sometimes I buy from Dominos, despite the outrageous prices they somehow have managed to get UK citizens to pay*. And I pay sometimes with Paypal. Last time they told me that the charge would only get taken once I had gotten the pizza. OK, that sounds like a good thing, if unnecessary, since there has never been a problem.
But: until now I've gotten at least four email messages, following that damn little payment as it moves along towards completion. And it smells like I haven't even seen the last of it yet.
I think beurocrazy (as it should be spelled) is based on fear and the inability to face things and take responsibility for them. And it breeds.
*I'm told in the US they are cheap. But in this town, a normal pizza is about 4-5 dollars more expensive than other local alternatives. (But they must have a special recipe, maybe for the bread, because sometimes you just find yourself wanting one from Dominos.)
|Look at this: 16 pounds (over 20 dollars) |
for a chicken/bacon large pizza! Robbery.
I've never paid over 9 pounds anywhere else.
