One thought on “Tough week for pizza guys”

  1. about 15 years ago… ok so now it is closer to 20. I was a pizza delivery guy in a pretty rough area of town. It wasn’t a big named place, locally owned so it didn’t have a large corporate lawyer telling anyone what to do. I would be walking around some pretty crappy places with $200 maybe $300 cash in my pocket. Most all of us “drivers” had guns. In fact the guy who ran the place told us, “If you don’t have one, let me know and you can borrow one mine.” In the four years I worked there no one got robbed… well, three times people tried to take money from one of us but none ever got away with it so it doesn’t really count as “robbed”. Also no shots were ever fired, and only once was a police report ever filed.
