    On the plus side your 10 year old now has a vivid illustration of the term stupid to reference. The behavior was totally inappropriate and the manager should be informed. I shudder to think of what they could do to someone's pizza in the name of peer entertainment.
    How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

    What exactly is a "6" wire paper impaler"? I know what all 3 words mean, I just never seen them used in the context that you used them.

    But obviously it sounds like something that should not have been shoved up one's nose.

    The manager on duty should be terminated and the lad who was performing should be sternly repermanded. The kid probably didn't know any better but diffinately the manager should have had him under some supervision.

    Ben ..I think he's talking about one of those long nails up through a base that they use to place the order tickets after use.

    Is doing that bad? na, not at all. But doing in a place of business infront of customers,,, yes.

    I'm sure we've all done plenty of things that would have gotten us in trouble if the customers seen/knew about it... but thats where smarts come into play... you don't get caught lol.

    In my useless opinion it wouldn't have been a big deal at all. As long as he washes up when he's done it was harmless fun. At least they are trying to be productive by working for minumum wage and not hanging out on the street corner selling drugs.

    No big deal?.....It's a frickin restaurant.
    There to pick up a pizza and see some idiot with a 6" nail up his nose....a nail that is used at the counter.
    Does wonders for my appetite...

    When they get bored with the nail.."hey let's plop a lugie in that aholes pizza that took 5 minutes to decide what toppings they wanted"

    Kids will be idiots..that's for sure. I was/am an idiot...but I learned to be one on my own time. You can't prevent kids from being idiots..but you can teach them that
    there's consequences to pay when you're not bright enough to choose when and where it's okay.
