A Papa Story -- Pizza Delivery Fail

Another Papa Tony story:

Once, when I was a little boy, some of my friends and I decided to camp out in the back of my dad’s truck. We set up sleeping bags and, like the usual sleepover, we stayed up late laughing and horsing around.

At about 10:00 at night, we decided that we wanted a pizza. We didn’t have any money, so we came up with a plan. The truck we were staying in was parked close to our neighbor’s house. So, we went in our house, called the pizza place, and asked them to deliver it to the neighbor’s address.

After we called, we put a note on the neighbor’s door that read:


Sure enough, about 20 minutes later, the pizza delivery man parked outside the neighbor’s house and went up to the door. We watched from the back of the truck. The man read the note then started pounding on the door. A light came on inside, and a woman answered. She must have told the man that she hadn’t ordered a pizza.

The delivery man noticed us in the back of the truck, and he started walking toward us. He banged on the back of the truck, we opened the door, and he said, “Did you guys order a pizza?” Of course, we denied it, so we never got our pizza.

The next morning, while we were playing outside, the neighbor called us over. She handed me the note we had left on her door and asked, “Tony, did you leave this on my door?” I fessed up to it, but she was a wonderful woman. She thought it was so funny that she just laughed.
