Lazy Friday night dinners prevail in my house and we had just received a coupon from Papa John's. Though not our favorite, it was a good deal, and we had to feed two teenagers, so we went for it. The coupon was for online ordering only, which is fine, we've done that before.
However, after going through the whole thing, it asked for the coupon code. And there wasn't one printed on the coupon. We looked around to see if the special was listed online, but nada.
So Hubs calls them up, asks for the manager. Phone guys says manager is busy, can he help? Hubs asks the question. Phone guy says, let me get the manager. Sigh.
Hubs explains to manager, who tells him, too bad, if he wants it, he'll have to call the 1-800 number for corporate. Outstanding customer service, don't you think? Hubs said no thanks.
So while I hopped on the other computer to order from somewhere else, he fired off a complaint email to Papa John's.
I ordered a 3-topping XL from another place. It arrived with 2 toppings. Another sigh.
Apparently, we weren't listening to the universe trying to tell us we should have gone with Thai food.
I think I am going to start being more complimentary when I get GOOD customer service!
As for the rest of the weekend:
Movie: The American - I give it a D. Boring, predictable, plot that's been done before, with an unrealistic lack of visible human beings, even for small Italian towns. Sad because I like George Clooney.
Movie: The Fighter - Better than I thought it would be, as I don't usually like boxing movies. I'll give it a solid B. Truthfully, the only reason I gave it a shot was because of Mark Wahlberg, and he didn't disappoint.
And a piece of advice - don't go to the nursery to "look" at plants for ideas, if you aren't prepared to spend the next three hours ripping out a garden bed and replanting it. Which may be exactly what I did Sunday afternoon.
