As an American, have you ever felt that you have taken your pizza for granted? Think about it: with no more than a phone call, you could have two extra-large, extra-cheese, extra-garlic-sauce-on-the-side, deep dish pepperoni personal pan pizzas with stacks of parmesan and pepper as far as the eye can see, delivered to your doorstep in under an hour.
We live a good life, don’t we?
Now what about that delivery boy. Did you remember to tip? After all, this poor kid only makes $31,000 an hour – wait, what?
As Americans, we have had the privilege of Domino’s pizza since 1960. Remember The Noid? What a joker!
As far as the Japanese go, they weren’t so lucky. Domino’s didn’t arrive in Japan until 1985, along with Huey Lewis’ “The Power of Love”. It was a good year.
Now that Japan’s favorite pizza chain in turning the big “25”, they are celebrating big time. First, if your kid is born on September 30, 2010, congratulations! They get a free pizza on their birthday until they turn 25 (kinda makes you wish you had knocked that girl up, huh Brian?)
But that’s not all.
Along with the 25th anniversary of Domino’s Pizza Japan, the company is set to hire one very lucky resident at the rate of 2,500,000 yen ($31,030) for an hour’s worth of work in December.
Gahhhh. What?! $31,030 for driving that pizza to your door? When we delivered pizzas in college, the only bonus we ever got was Becki’s number and some Creedence tapes. Looks like we’re taking JACK FM to Japan for a couple of months. See you in 2011!
