That’s a good plan. Mrs Fui got me into that mindset when we first met. I use to just bottle everything and, and then I’d blow a gasket and be right.
But she got me to talk it out with her, which helps me because once I start verbalising what’s in my head, then I can pick it apart and figure out what’s wrong.

They've come up with a "Dom pizza checker"

Checks the quality of the pizza with an over head scanner..

Even distribution of toppings etc.

What a load of poppykoc !!
Just saw the ad. It’s crazy. Save the money they’ve spent on this, and put it toward teaching your staff to not make **** pizzas

Dominos is pure filth..no doubt !!

But there was a time when pizza is all they did.

Since expanding the menu to keep up with other fast food franchises the ole Doms pizza has deteriorated big time..

Don't get me wrong..it was always carp, but now it's worse..

Oh..

And the Dom pizza checker ain't there to check even distubution of toppings.

It's there to ensure the minimal amount of topping is used..

Ante’s in Cobargo was the best. The man spoilt me. He had this pizza oven on a car trailer, and would spend a weekend in a different town.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Yeah, but to be fair, my OWN parents would drive me mental if I lived with them again!

And boney, I've seen how my in-laws are with both of their other son-in-laws and they really are easy-going people.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I enjoy both, but they're very different. My own family functions are just more like your old-fashioned drink too much, fall down drunk, abuse each other type affairs, whereas her family just seem so... normal.

Just had a team meeting where we were talking about the week that was.

I mentioned how I’ve been doing control testing on our complaint management process. I was saying how I sent a fax for the first time in years, because our website has a fax number listed as a source of sending complaints.

Out of the blue one of the guys asked what a fax was. I laughed and was all “Yeah righto, good one, only to find out he was serious. He’s 25 and never used one before...

Couldn’t believe it
