::waaaaaaaahhh: 'We’re temporarily prioritizing the delivery of some items...'
Posted by: RAMd®d
Date: March 30, 2020 02:55PM
Ordered in the wee hours this morning, it won't be until 29 April that my pizza cutter will arrive.



Until then, I'll have to use a knife, like a savage.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

This is where large numbers of people are going to discover that Amazon isn't the only online retailer that has free delivery service.

You should have turned this into a poll as to when it will arrive. My guess is that you will get it in less than 1 week.

Several things that I ordered last week with end of April delivery are arriving today.

Nothing will change. Just like most who say they’ll never shop at Walmart anymore.

Your mistake wasn't using scissors.

It was using pinking shears.

I just don't understand you people. You post asking if a jar of pickles from 1955 is safe to eat, you own $10,000 cameras, stock portfolios, travel(ed) overseas and you DON'T have an extra Pizza Cutting Wheel in your homes?

Don't have an extra?

I don't have any.

Son, I come from a time when pizzaristas took pride in their work, and when they made and sold you a pie, it was sliced all the way through with only thick hot mozzarella holding the pie together.

You'd lift a slice out and it would bend under the weight of topping and tendrils of cheese, with toppings starting to slide off. It was a race to catch them before they hit the plate.

That was then, this is now, with few pizza craftsmen left to had down the Old Ways to a new generation.

So what we get are people who phone it in - they run the cutter lightely over the pie, inside the perimeter of the crust, under the guise of supposed speed and efficiency.

And we're left to deal with the aftermath. NO MORE, say I. I will improvise, adapt, and overcome.

I'll get my own damn cutter.

This is where you need your very own Space Command Space Marine "Astronaut" Swiss Army Knife with laser cutter.

Just for context-when I started doing this NOBODY used a cutter. Pie came out of the oven and we'd use an oversized chef's knife, point down on one side and then with hand on the back of the knife near the handle just push down hard and slice. Turn halfway around and repeat into quarters, then eitghths.

Not a fan of the wheel, but it's a lot easier to store.

No cutter in my home. I just use a big butcher's knife.

Does no one else here use a 1.5 petawatt industrial laser to cut and cook the pizza simultaneously?

My favorite pizza place, Harris Pizza in the Quad Cities (Davenport, IA, Rock Island, IL), has always used oversized scissors.
