    low point.

    I have just reached a low point in my life. I ordered a pizza a couple minutes ago, and the phone person asked if I wasnted my regular and commented that I haden't called in a while. When it gets to the point the pizza company knows you. You hit a low point in life.

    pizza is one of the best meals in the entire universe. It contains all of the food groups in one serving. I think you've reached a high point. Just make sure you stay active so the fat and calories and all the other crap that comes with it doesn't give you a heart attack.

    Actually its very easy for the pizza place to "remember you." There are programs that use the caller ID info sent to automatically bring up your order history, address, name, etc before the person even picks up the phone. (phone line is hooked up through the computer so to speak)

    It probably has to do with the caller ID as Thantos mentioned.

    Still, why is it a low point?

    Bucks pizza isn't that advanced. I've been in there before and its basically a really small place. There isn't caller I.d, they just know my voice. Its easy yeah, but thats a lot of pizza orders.

    well if you honestly feel *that* bad about it eat less friggin pizza. OR, eat pizza from elsewhere. OR, eat more at McDonalds or Wendy's or Subway or your local chinese place or become an alcoholic and stop eating and just barf so much you won't really give two $$$$s about what you eat or how you look or what your wife thinks about the size of your unit.

    Depending on where you live, that doesn't change much.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    There used to be a burger king lady who knew that I didn't want ketchup whenever I went there.

    Also, the subway ladies all know my order. It doesn't change, even a cow could memorize it.

    15 year olds are supposed to feel good about eating pizza...this is the one time in your life when you CAN physically manage to eat pizza and feel good about yourself! 15 year olds have such a high metabolism that they rarely even need to poop, it's a proven fact! They need all that fat crap and calories to make the horny chemicals and the rebelion hormones and grow hair and stuff
