I’ll clarify …
A couple of times a year when our team plays ball near her house, she invites everyone over for pizza afterwards. She gets a head count, calls her hubby, and he orders it up, and everyone chips in about $5 each or so.
At Tuesday’s game she made a point of asking everyone if they were coming to her place after Thursday’s game, for pizza. The assumption was, at least on my part, that it would be the same as always - fresh pizza, with everyone chipping in.
The pizza tasted like ass of course, but yes, they reheated it in the oven. I thought they had just ordered it too early maybe and they were keeping it warm. I also thought maybe they had ordered it from some crappy 2-for-1 place.
As we were leaving I asked, “How much do you want for the pizza? $5? $10?” she said, “Oh no, $5 is fine” … as I gave it to her, she said, “It was just left over from the party anyway”.
So I guess technically she didn’t ASK for money, but she certainly didn’t refuse it, and if I had even guessed that the pizza was LEFTOVERS from 5 days ago, I wouldn’t have had any of course. I wish she had warned us …
I am nauseated at the thought of it.
