Anyway, it seems to be offset by the prices. £7.50 for a 14 inch pizza? How can they make a profit on that?
Let me compare Papa Johns in Glasgow and London to see if there's a difference within the franchise. It's actually £1 more in Glasgow. Weird.
Wow. What am I looking at? Check this place out:
What are they even selling? £1.20 for "roasted peanuts". Roasted peanut what? It's the smallest, most bizarre, and cheapest menu I've ever seen. Let me check Google Street View.
Ah right. I was on this street. It's one of the main shopping streets in Glasgow, I think, but you still see boarded up buildings.
£4.50 delivery fee for some other place. Who's paying that?
Not many pizza places, I've noticed. There's a lot of Chinese and Indian and kebabs and places that sell loads of shit including pizza but not many dedicated pizza places. I never saw an Indian place that also sells pizza, for example. But here it is.
Here's a place that only sells desserts. Total madness. So you can order two brownies for £3.50 each, that's £7, then £3 delivery fee so £10 for two brownies delivered to your door. Who's doing that? How big and/or amazing are these brownies? But even weirder is that their main menu items are ice cream and milkshakes. Well, whatever. Good luck with the business, Cake and Shake.
Yeah, it's overwhelmingly Indian restaurants, actually. That's disappointing. There are some unusual ones, though. A Mexican place, Spanish, Lebanese. Hey, Greek. They say that they sell kebabs but I wonder if they're actually gyros. Gyros are a much better food. Yeah, I don't know. They say "kebabs" in the description but there's no kebabs in the menu or gyros. It looks like legitimate Greek food on the menu, though so that's good. Pretty expensive, though.
Another dessert place. They're only selling drinks, though. Who's getting a coffee delivered to their home?
There's a couple Japanese places. Not really a fan.
Some "fish and chips" places. I don't eat that either.
Yeah, overwhelmingly Indian places that also sell hamburgers and pizza. Very sad. A decent restaurant could probably clean up there. Of course, one must bear in mind the overwhelmingly poverty of the city.
Even the Lebanese place sells a few pizzas.
Let me see these two Mexican places. Maybe a Mexican pizza. Well, one place is Mexican but also loads of other shit. So their Mexican options are limited to nachos and enchiladas. That's shit.
The other place is just Mexican but it closes at 9.35. What a weird closing time. First of all, it's early, secondly why not 9.30?
Yeah, I don't think it's a real Mexican place. You can get burittos or you can get tacos. And I should put "burittos" and "tacos" in quotes because they're probably just wraps. They also sell a Brazilian beer. That's kind of close to Mexico, I guess.
It's also halal. That explains it. For all those Mexican Muslims, I guess.
Anyway, it's all disappointing. But maybe I'll just be glad to get out of London. Mix things up.
Some people enjoy compacency. When I was looking through my yearbook earlier today I saw who the "biggest partier" winners were. Some girl who liked me and some dude who I didn't really like. The quotes are:
Where's the party?
Wherever I am!
Right, so, Hammond then. Both of those hard partiers still live in that ghetto.
When I went to Finland my brother-in-law mentioned a cashier at a liquor store asking him to bring her something from Finland because she's never left the country. This is just the way many people live.
Not me, though. I'm a risk-taker. In a different era I'd be a pirate or a pioneer or something.
If you're not a rugged individualist, forget it. You can't do it. And you also have to be bold, courageous, and daring. This rules out 99+% of the population.
But if you do possess these rare qualities, you can do whatever you want. Go to New England on a whim, go to Ireland on a whim, go to England on a whim, go to Scotland on a whim, go to Finland on a whim.
