The pizza place that has been so good for the past few months was just OK tonight 😔
@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 😋
@kai That’s terrible :< 💔
@smotheredbyblankets it's a first world problem
@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? 😅
True. The key to curbing addiction is to reduce entrepreneurship. lol
@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.
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? 🤔 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 😅
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.
