    When I was stationed at Shaw, the local Domino's did the same thing.

    When you rob the pizza man, expect to stop getting deliveries. Is it really that hard to understand?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I've known pizza joints that didn't deliver to military bases...PRE 9/11.

    Never thought of them as "anti-military".

    Oh they delivered on base, but they certainly didn't deliver to most places off base after a certain time.

    Domino's in Detroit only delivers to office buildings and secure apartment/condo complexes. One of my friends used to do singing telegrams in the area, and they had the same policy regarding Detroit calls.


    The only places that deliver pizza to houses in Detroit are local-owned businesses, and a rapidly-expanding local chain called Happy's Pizza. And Happy's had a driver robbed and killed a few years ago, before they expanded into the suburbs.

    I always ordered and picked up my pizza from the original Buddy's on Conant and McNichols. It's still pretty close to where I live in the burbs. It's safe because the cops all eat there, plus the COs from the two prisons nearby. They also have security guards in their parking lot. It's one of the last vestiges of the Detroit of my childhood.

    Remember what the pizza delivery guys at FT Dix had planned. They were jihadis who intended to smuggle weapons onto the post and shoot up everybody in sight.

    Hmmm.... Now if some of those guys were available to deliver pizza is bad neighborhoods, that might solve the problem. :D

    One of my apartments in San Francisco was on the black side of the race line between Alamo Square (the postcard Victorians, white holdout enclave at the time) and the black section which is now white again as well.

    Anyway... some pizza places wouldn't come there and some taxi requests would get lost in dispatch. While it pissed me off, and I did accuse one pizza place (run by Arabs) of racial discrimination, if these places would simply have done what delivery places do now and put a delivery map on their menu, it would have stopped a lot of annoyance.

    The irritating part wasn't being in the no-go zone, it was the inconsistency and uncertainty. This was also before telephone credit card charges, which I would imagine makes a huge difference as does enhanced caller ID.

    But business has to accept the bargain as well. If you aren't going to deliver to 99150 or if you aren't going to deliver "above Divisidero" then you have to accept that you can't deliver to the pockets of desirable business that you have always made an exception for. It's either/or. You can gerrymander but you can't spot-zone.
