The pizza place that has been so good for the past few months was just OK tonight πŸ˜”

@kai Did their good pizzaiolo quit?

Losing the pizzaiolo often spells the end of the fortune for Italian pizzerias. Customers do notice the difference in dough fermentation and cooking, and eventually seek a better pizza elsewhere.

@codewiz no but I didn't see the owner working so the kids must be screwing around πŸ˜‹

@mrjunge @smotheredbyblankets maybe I just got lucky showing up only when the owner happened to be working. The pizza is really good but he's also a coked out maniac πŸ˜…

@kai @smotheredbyblankets
Maybe his apprentices will need a stern talking to so you get your quality pizza again. And how's he a maniac? Lol

@mrjunge lol I think it's just the nature of running a business. How else are you going to work 12 hours/day in food service and raise a family without drugs? πŸ˜…

@mrjunge obviously (or at least I hope obviously), I wouldn't advocate that people turn to drugs.

But I can understand being in your 40s, running a restaurant, for all I know his wife doesn't work meaning all the pressure is on him to bring in the cash, the restaurant is open 12 hours per day + prep time and clean up, 7 days per week, and all of your employees are clueless teens.

…cocain, right?

I was joking. But yeah. I can understand that. It is kind of amusing though that being able to basically function under the demands of the economy pushes us to take more psychoactive/psychotropic drugs. It's as if jt doesn't tolerate human limits, ey? πŸ€” I heard Wall Street peeps take a lot of drugs.

@mrjunge my idea of a cocaine user is like a single mother working two jobs πŸ˜…

what's jt?

Well, rich people also take drugs, albeit for different reasons. Likely not cocaine though, but I wouldn't know. And yeah. Lets not forget meth as well. It's definitely a form of self-medication.

@mrjunge there's a methadone clinic right down the street. It's very busy.

@kai @mrjunge why was I kicked out of this drug conversation? πŸ€”πŸ‘€ jk πŸ˜‚

@mrjunge @kai Oh I see πŸ™‚ what’s up Kai? We got beef now?

Jk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

@smotheredbyblankets @mrjunge I assumed you would get sick of the conversation eventually

@kai @mrjunge it’s okay kai I get it. ❀️ don’t worry about it. But I loved reading the conversation.

@smotheredbyblankets @mrjunge I see a lot of "please untag me" and I try to solve that problem before it happens πŸ˜‹

@kai @mrjunge I see. I understand then. Don’t worry about it.
