    I usually pick it up. Almost every time I get pizza is on a weekend when I'm getting ready for football and need to do some grocery shopping anyway. The grocery store is like 1.5 miles away, and Dominos is about 0.3 miles from there, so it's not really worth the ~$6 for delivery and tip.

    But yeah, delivery is amazing if it's one of those nights. Really, I can just put some shit into my computer and pizza shows up? Yes please.

    Lots of people. That delivery is still offered as a service at pretty much every pizza place is a pretty sure sign of how common it is.

    There was a Dominos in my college town when I was in school that tasted like shit smeared on half baked dough.

    They fucking sucked until they overhauled their stuff recently. I don't know what year that was, but it made an absolutely huge difference. They went from my least favorite pizza in the known universe to a solid 6.5 out of 10.

    How long ago was that? They changed their stuff really drastically, they even aired commercials here that said something like "We know we sucked, we're sorry, we're good now."

    Well that was really anti-climactic.

    The change happened in 2009 if I'm looking this up right, so you were a bit early.

    Eh. Almost any town is going to have a place where you can get pizza better than the chain stuff anyway.

    Not shocked. Corporations are not going to take a loss in profits. Yeah it may not be right but its a reality.

    It depends on what you want at that moment, too.

    Of course I realize the service exists for a reason. Mine is a question of practicality.

    I'm simply asking why the hell someone would pay a $3.50 delivery charge when the nearest Dominos is probably 5 minutes up the road.

    Yeah, I don't think anyone disagrees with that. Dominos is cheap, convenient, delivers, open late, and takes online orders though.

    On a side note, the Maryland burbs outside of DC are AWFUL for pizza. The only place I know of that's definitely better than Dominos is about a 25 minute drive and doesn't deliver. For someone used to the pizza and wings from Buffalo, NY this is tragic, but such is life.

    I think I've got at least three reasons I've done it -

    1. Drinking. If you're drinking, driving's not a good option. Also, you won't care about the delivery charge (I think it's $2 here, plus tip).

    2. Football is on. If I desire pizza, but I'm watching my Bills or Huskers, I'm not missing a half quarter to avoid spending an irrelevant sum of money.

    3. I have a group of people here. When everyone kicks in a dollar and no one moves, everyone wins.

    Because sometimes having to put on pants is not worth 3.50.

    When i was like 13-16 my parents would go out to eat every once in a while so they would leave me 20$ and say order pizza for myself. The delivery was pretty useful considering i couldn't drive. Also people are lazy or just want to relax and not waste gas. There is a lot of reasons.

    Being lazy, being tired, not wanting to drive, not wanting to leave your house, being busy. Lots of reasons, really.
