what would you have done with the pizza?

  1. Jumped off the machine, ate it all, who cares about a few bugs?

    So, just when we thought we've seen and heard it all, Matt came home the other evening to tell me this. Seems he was cutting a lawn, when out in the middle of a lawn, sorta by a tree was a pizza. A full pizza. He said it was one of those cheap microwave oven pizzas, like those Totino pizzas. Anyhow, it was perfectly cut into 6 slices. He said surely the customer didn't make it for him, and expect him to eat that, with bugs, grass, dirt, getting on it. He said that he didn't feel like getting off the machine, so he ran it over.

    Well a little while later, the customer came out, and he appeared mad. He said, "why did you run over that pizza?" Matt says, "what did you want me to do with it?" The customer says, "i just made that for the birds." Matt says, "the BIRDS? you can't give that to birds." the customer says, "why not? I make it for them all the time." Matt says, "well i helped them out a little bit then, and chopped it up for them." The customer says, "next time you see a pizza out here, don't run it over, just mow around it."

    What would you have done? lol... I'll set this up as a poll.

    Weird...I guess I would have moved it, that's what I did when I found a stupid harry potter book in a customers front lawn by a busy street...I just tossed it in the road (side of the road). It looked brand new and they have no kids so I don't know, someone probably got it as a gift and was like pissed at the crappy gift and threw it on my customers lawn as they were driving by.
