I think I’ve made my love of Domino’s pizza delivery here in Hannover, Germany, pretty darn clear. It is not a love affair I even attempt to conceal. One thing you might not know, however, is exactly how I choose to greet these sweet, sweet, delivery boy angels who descend from Cholesterol Heaven to ring at my front door.
So, I recorded a terribly low-quality video — primarily for the sound — as our last pizza was delivered. One thing to note: the reason I start laughing in the middle of the exchange is because I indicated the following in my online order instructions:
Bitte schneiden die Pizzas ganz durch. GANZ DURCH. Das ist mein einziger Wunsch im Leben. Vielen Dank und bitte fahrt vorsichtig!
…which translates directly to…
Please cut the pizzas all the way through. COMPLETELY THROUGH. This is my only wish in life. Thank you and please drive carefully!
(NOTE: For reasons I will never quite understand, it is not standard practice for pizza places in Germany to cut their pies into slices. They let the customers do that for themselves. It drives me absolutely bugshit.)
Anyway, this is why the delivery guy mentions it again (“…ganz durch geschnitten.”), making sure I knew the pizzas had been sliced as requested. Please give this video a look and make sure you catch the part where my wife says from the kitchen, “Yaaaaaay! Awesome-awesome-awesome-possum, stimmts?”
Thank you for watching and have an awesome day!
