Sir, is there a problem sir?

A flyer for Pizza Caprina, a home delivery pizzeria drifted in with the morning's newspaper. Since the quality of pizzas at the more popular joints is steadily declining, we decided to give it a shot. After all, it can't be much worse than D or P, we thought. We called in our order and 35 minutes later, a puffing and panting delivery boy handed in our order.

The pizza, and the garlic bread turned out to be a surprise package. The garlic bread was fresh, and did not require appetising by a dip. The pizza was even better. Excellent base, well done with sauces and cheese that did not require a leather cutter and generously sprinkled with toppings. We enjoyed the pizza so much that we decided to call back and pay them a compliment. What unfolded was unbelievable.

Tring... tring...
Hello, Pizza Caprina?
Good evening, Pizza Caprina, may I help you sir?
Hi, yes, about an hour ago, I ordered a pizza and...
Sir, can you give me your name sir?
Yes, my name is Raman, but...
Sir, the pizza is on its way sir, it will be delivered in five minutes. Sorry for the delay.
But my friend, the pizza has already arrived and we have eaten it and wha...
Some problem sir?
Arre, I am calling to say that the pizza was excellent, it was really good.
Sir, what is the problem sir?
Boss, में यह बोल रहा हूँ के pizza बहुत अच्चा था, इतना अच्चा pizza अरसे में नहीं खाया. बहुत मज़ा आगया.
नहीं sir, ज़रूर कुछ problem होगा.
नहीं यार, में हमेशा Dominos और Pizza Hut से pizza खाता था, लेकिन आपका pizza तो ज़बरदस्त था. It was fabulous.
Sir, I will speak to manager and call you back.
Click!

Guy probably thought I was being sarcastic or was a prankster. Probably no one's ever called back to compliment a good pizza. Shows how unappreciative we have become.
