Are we really getting this lazy?

Domino's Pizza has a new offering. If you should order a large pizza for your evening meal, they will email the members of your family or whoever you want with the message, "Dinner's Ready" when the pizza comes out of the oven and on the way home.

Good grief! Can't the person who goes to get it, or when the doorbell rings, have a member of the family call that out themselves? Has every member of the household lost their voice?

They must be doing something right. Every time I ride by the one close to my home, there are also a lot of customers in there. But then since it is only a door or two away from an Academy for teenagers, I shouldn't be surprised. I often see the kids in there for lunch. But who is telling them that their meal is ready?

I've never seen a Domino's with seating.

They do have them in these here parts. The one near the school doesn't though. And that I can understand.

Over here Dominos pizzas are pretty dire. I pass the nearest Dominos to me at various times of the day and evening and there's never any customers in there.
