We had a fun time getting dinner tonight. We ordered a couple of meals from “China House” (about 2 miles away from our house) at around 6:00. We were told “under 45 minutes”. 45 minutes would have been kind of late for us, but we figured it’d be alright. At 6:50, we gave them a call to see where the food was.
“The driver is on the way to your house, but rush hour traffic is bad.” What? Less than one mile up East Piedmont Road is “rush hour”. C’mon!
Still, we waited. At about 7:05 we called again, this time to cancel. He assured us that the driver was almost there, but we canceled anyhow. No apologies, nothing. Quite a bit of silence on their end, which was quite odd.
Even more interesting was at about 7:20 (after Kel had already made some pancakes for dinner – score!), the driver called to make sure he had the right address. Ha! He seemed quite put off that we had canceled the order a while ago.
Needless to say, we won’t be calling them again anytime soon.
