I used to deliver pizzas. I still consider that job as my ultimate fallback for employment should everything else fall apart- the job is easy, usually fun, tips are okay and it keeps gas in the car. But you simply don’t risk your life for a 12 dollar disk of dough, sauce and cheese. And Dominos Pizza knows this fact better than anyone.
Dominos pioneered the pizza delivery business- and even scaled back delivery services specifically to keep drivers safe by getting rid of delivery guarantees. They didn’t want drivers rushing on the streets, risking tickets or accidents to deliver food. And it used to be that if there was a high crime neighborhood, that area was considered out of the delivery area. Yeah, it happened to be a proportionally higher black ghetto where crimes happened, but you still protect your driver- and to hell with the accusations of racism. But maybe Domino’s reversed that policy because Elizabeth Hutcheson was stabbed more than 50 times while delivering pizza at a home in Cedartown at a dead end road just a block from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. I don’t deliver there and don’t have to to declare that area “outside the delivery zone.”
From Fox here:
Police captured two teens who brutally stabbed a pizza delivery woman. Elizabeth Hutcheson was stabbed more than 50 times while delivering pizza at a home in Cedartown on Thursday night.
The stabbing happened just after 9 p.m. at a home on Thompson Street. Investigators say Hutcheson’s attackers ran away after stabbing her.
Officers who were conducting a traffic stop nearby heard Hutcheson’s screams and rushed to help her.
Hutcheson was a 27-year-old mother who worked at Domino’s Pizza. They have identified one of the suspects as 18-year-old Cadedra Cook. The other suspect is a 15-year-old boy whose name is not being released.
Hutcheson’s fiancé praised police for the quick arrest. He said that she had a 4-year-old daughter. He said she carried less than $20.
Bastards. And Domino’s is to blame for their lack of foresight to deny delivery to such a piece of shit neighborhood where people can’t afford pizza nor the price of a tip. The lives of the delivery personnel should always take precedence. Pretending that violent blacks in the ghetto won’t rob or murder your drivers simply is not an option.
If you haven’t read my opinions about Martin Luther King Dr on any town in America, see this post here.
And by the way, a black woman stabbing a white woman 50 times over a 12 dollar pizza sure isn’t a hate crime in this country.
Back when I worked in the Pizza industry I did a quick tour through Domino’s. This was back in the days of the 30 minute guarantee. Hated just about every day on the job there. This is what I wish had been written on my termination sheet.
Sounds too good to be true and probably is. But if you are on your way out, make a grand exit.
