Man Demands Joke on the Inside of Pizza Box, Dominoes Gets Last Laugh
People who order from Dominoes Pizza are usually either a) drunk or b) don’t have better pizza options available.
Daniel Jones lives in pizza-crazy New Jersey, so there’s the first sign he fit under the first category. He asked for a joke on the inside of the box, so that was strike number two.
What happened next proved he had either shifted from hungry drunk to angry drunk or proves that everyone in New Jersey is suddenly a snowflake.
This was the joke that the folks at Dominoes came up with: A mirror taped to the inside of a box with the word “smile” written above it.
That’s a pretty good burn, but this is a guy who asked for a joke inside a pizza box. One would have hoped he could take a good burn, instead of going to Domino’s Facebook account about it.
While the pizza giant was more than willing to call it unacceptable, other users were less forgiving.
“If you’re really going to punish an employee for this I rather order from another place,” one user wrote.
“A year or so ago I asked dominos to write ‘your sexy (winky face)’ and when they delivered it to me the driver said they were not allowed to lie to the costumers,” another user shared. “Made my night.”
And then there was the user who pointed out Jones’ location: “Wait a minute, the person filing the complaint lives in New Jersey, where some of the finest and best pizza in North America can be found in just about any independent mom & pop pizzeria and they order from DOMINOES?! Are you kidding me?”
Jones tried to back off his criticism, even after it went viral.
“I never even clicked there (sic) link no ones gonna lose there (sic) job or getting in trouble I just wanted see if I could get a reply calm down and have a nice day,” Jones wrote.
This was a genius move. Unfortunately, the recipient wasn’t exactly on that level. Or drunk. There is always that possibility.
The point is, if you ask for a joke, don’t go all snowflake if you can’t take it. Or think before you drink. Whichever life lesson is really applicable here.
We do really hope it’s the former and you’re a nice, sober young man living a clean life who just has a thing for Domino’s and humor. But please, learn how to take a joke.
