1) Order some food online from the website of a local pizzeria.
2) Confirm order.
3) "Order has been submitted. Thank you."
4) "Please call if you wish to pay with a credit card."

Wait, wut?

Btw, who runs American  pizzarias? In here just about every pizzeria is run by various Middle Eastern immigrants. That's somewhat weird since we have a lot less immigrants than most countries.

I've only been in maybe 5 real pizzeria places, so my experience is limited here (most of the pizza places here are chains of some type). Most seem to have a mix of people working there*, though there's probably a disproportionate number of Italians. They generally have names like "Carasellas" or "Gino Giannilli's." Anyway, that seems strange to me about being run by Middle Easterners, but then what do I know?  Grin


*Unlike, say, Chinese/Korean/Japanese/etc. places, where 95% of the people working there are Asian

EDIT--Also, when I was talking about "here" I mean the rural or semi-rural areas of PA I've mostly lived in. I would expect large cities to be somewhat different...

I'll second that there are a large number of Italians involved in pizzerias. Non-Italian, Caucasian-Americans are pretty common too though. I don't think I've ever seen a pizzeria with any other kind of ethnicity, except pizza chains (different than pizzerias, of course).

In my corner of Canada, there are plenty of Italian family run pizzerias, but it's common to see chain franchises run by Indians and other South Asians.

Doesn't he? Well, the time frame and characterization work out well in my head.
How can someone who goes on so often about his Mexican heritage not know Spanish?  Huh

It's a bit ironic. But then again I don't know Gaelic or German.
Perhaps I haven't read enough of your posts, but I have not seen a stream of posts from you complaining that people are keeping "us Germans" down. He is no more "Latino" than any other 2-3rd generation kid in this country. My grandfather was Serbian, but I don't think of myself as a Serb.

No.  I actually didn't even know until after I became a catechumen and my dad told me.  I then cracked a joke about returning to the family faith and he got really mad and said it wasn't our family faith, it was a false religion.  I kinda left it at that.  Apparently too sore of a subject for him...

He was, but he hated the Church.  Apparently, he had several bad experiences with priests in the old country. He became Lutheran when he got to the states. Sad

Did that familial heritage have anything to do with your conversion?
No.  I actually didn't even know until after I became a catechumen and my dad told me.  I then cracked a joke about returning to the family faith and he got really mad and said it wasn't our family faith, it was a false religion.  I kinda left it at that.  Apparently too sore of a subject for him...

LOL. From this and what you've posted about your spouse, sounds like you're having a fun time with this Orthodoxy thing.

Doesn't he? Well, the time frame and characterization work out well in my head.
How can someone who goes on so often about his Mexican heritage not know Spanish?  Huh

It's a bit ironic. But then again I don't know Gaelic or German.
Perhaps I haven't read enough of your posts, but I have not seen a stream of posts from you complaining that people are keeping "us Germans" down. He is no more "Latino" than any other 2-3rd generation kid in this country. My grandfather was Serbian, but I don't think of myself as a Serb.

No but I like to role-play as a European (usually either German or Celtic). My Dark Souls character is named Wilhelmus.

Was your grandpa Orthodox?

hahaha, its a real hoot!  My entire family thinks on marching straight to hell...

Some days, I don't know if it is God keeping me on this path or just my own darn stubbornness.  I would like to think its God.

Why is it that when we are mad, we not only curse another person, but also the horse they rode in on? What do we have against the poor horse? Will such madness ever end?

Never.

By the way, I hear the USDA or somebody has approved the opening of plants in New Mexico (?) to process horse meat for consumption.  That'll take care of the cursed critters!!!

Do people eat horse in the US? I thought that'd be sort of frowned upon by most. Then again, with the surge of Chinese restaurants in recent decades I suppose we've been conditioned to accept exotic meats...

Pro tip for the young people reading this: don't get diabetes. Yeah you can lose your feet and go blind and all that, but even "normal" daily life can get frustrating; like dealing with the increased number of infections. As it so happens, I have one at the moment. "This'll feel like a little prick" the doctor said as he prepared to cut me open. I guess if by that he meant that it'd hurt like h*ll, then sure, a little prick.  Cool  Remember that Seinfeld episode with Mike the bookie, and how his thumbs looked after Jerry broke them? Yeah, that's how my left hand looks right now.  Grin

Are you sure? Ever have that sweet and sour chicken taste a little too sweet maybe? Have you ever had a wonton soup with a bit of an iron flavor to it? Is the turnover for workers unusually high? Do they like to give free food to the employees (to fatten them up)? Think about it.

In the Flemish parts of Belgium, horse meat was on the menu in a lot of restaurants.

Federal Approval Near for Opening of Horse Meat Processing Plant in New Mexico

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/01/us/horse-meat-processing-plant-approval-near.html?_r=0

The other morning on the radio I heard approval had been granted.  Maybe I mis-heard?
