Dear All,

Recently in The Times of India I was reading about the Pizza delivery Companies which gurantees you free pizza if they fail to deliver within the specified time (like 30 minutes).

Have you ever wondered who pays for the free pizzas??

Well, the delivery boy is made to pay for the pizza.

They are paid such low wages which I feel ashamed to mention because of the international members, and the price of the pizza is deducted from the monthly wages which can amount to upto 60% in some months (It becomes difficult to run their family).

To delivery the pizzas the delivery boys take high traffic risks and delivery becomes their priority. Their life risk and safety are neither looked into by the Pizza Shop Management nor the Pizza Delivery Boy(They are more concerned to avoid the deductions).

I would only like to request members that if this type of exploitation is carried on in your city's pizza logistics we should stop availing the home delivery system, because to deliver our pizza one person may be risking his life. Is the life of an Indian citizen so cheap and valueless. In case he is late we are enjoying pizza at the hard earned money of a poor delivery boy. Is it fair or right on our part to do it?

As HR, please think and if you feel that this is wrong please spread the message and stop having pizza's delivered at home.

Please think

Hello SC
Good to see this posting. Completely agreed with your posting. Human life is not so cheap that we count it with the price equal to pizza or any other home - delivery food.
I am in Dubai presently, would like to share one incident happened few days back. One pizza boy was on a bike was in hurry to delivered his pizza. When he was about to take turn, a speedy car was coming from the other side. The driver in want to save pizza boy's life but he was not able to control the car and car got hit into the pole. The pizza boy was saved but driver got severe injured and person on the other seat with driver got died on the spot (he got head injury).
"Delivering food in 30 mins" this business promotion should be stopped as soon as possible.

This is a shocker!!! We only think about the free pizza but not who pays for it!!! I think we should think twice before when things like this come to affect not only for Pizzas but other items too.
Thanks for sharing this!

Dear All,
Thank you for the responses. I am waiting for more active participation and request everyone to put in their comments.
Always remember if you ever order for a pizza to be delivered, always request the Pizza Outlet that the life and money of the Pizza Delivery Boy is more important than the 30 Minutes Delivery Time.

That Really was a very touching piece of information..
Sometimes we as customers get so carried awayt by all the ads and promotions that we see that we fail to realise tht nothing comes free someone, somewhere is paying for it..
Its very sad that companies instead of taking responsibility for such delivery people is taxing them for getting stuck in the traffic etc..
Thanks for this info.

Dear all,
The delivery boy pays because if he delivers the pizza late, and tells to his company that he could not deliver the pizza in time, he has to fill a very long questionnaire form. In addition, he has to answer queries from his restaurant manager also.
The delivery boys to avoid this interrogation prefer to pay on their own and reconcile with the situation. They generally adjust this amount with their tips.
Restaurant Manager is also happy because he maintains his (so called) service level!
Is this the success of our Quality Movement?
