One of the fun things we did at Willie's was to drive the customers nuts!
Those ordering pizza's could see us take them out of the ovens and lay them on the table for cutting. They couldn't see the table, but saw us place the cooked pizza on it.
We would cut it and pull out a pizza box for it. Then we would lift the lid of the the box high enough for the customer to see, and slide the pizza in it. Of course we already had another box on the table where they couldn't see it.
Willie, who knew what we were up to, would start hollering "FASTER, before it gets cold!" We would then trot out with the EMPTY box, pretend to trip, and toss it in the air towards the customer!
Talk about people freakin' out! The looks on their faces as they saw their pizza flying through the air was hysterical! Everything from shock to anger to disgust.
Sometimes, to top it off, Willie would pick up the box of "pizza," hand it back to us while angrily saying, "make sure you scrape all the cheese and sauce off the top of the box and put it back on the pizza." He'd then turn to the customer and say, "we'll have it all back together in a minute." The stunned look that resulted from all this was incredible!
