Pizza Guy



"Two Regular-sized Classic Chicken Pizza with extra cheese."

"Sure Sir. The order will be delivered within 30 minutes, else you can have it for free."

And thus starts the race,
His Bike In Top Gear,
Our Pizza Guy steady on chase,
In destinations far, and near.

Even a minute of delay would make Pizza Guy bear the entire cost of delivery as per company's rules. He had to reach on time.

His bike shook, hit and then, numb. Cold blood. Deep black sleep.

"Where's the pizza, dude?"

"We are sorry, Sir. We'll be providing it to you for free."

  4. It's just a percentage that's free btw. I don't demand for the free thing, since I'm aware of it getting cut out of the delivery person's salary :)
