They sometimes take orders over the phone as well.
If the restaurant services customers in the city, Pizza Delivery Drivers can deliver their orders on a bicycle, weather permitting. Our advice is to look past it. No copypasta, obviously fake stories, or pun posts. While the check is indeed important, and comes every two weeks, for a driver that check can often be much less than their nightly cash take-home pay. So, I know most of their names.

The ultimate duty of a Delivery Driver is to safely transport the purchased product to the customer. Pizza provided me a way in the evening to do it.
