I frequent a little pizza place often....too often... at least three times a week for lunches. They have good soups and are noted for their thin crust pizza with interesting toppings.
Last night I called to place my order and asked for "half vegaholic" and "half buffalo chicken."
I am told "we don't do half and half pizzas anymore."
I say I had one two days ago.
I am told " we *won't* do it anymore. Order two smalls."
Two smalls would cost about $6 more than one large.
I don't want/need two pizzas.
And, to add background data, In the past we were always charged as if it were a whole pizza with the higher-priced topping.
Their pizzas are already 30% more expensive than the norm in my community, but the interesting toppings are what makes the price acceptable imho.
My questions are:
Is asking for a half and half pizza an unreasonable request by the customer?
Does refusing to do so without explanation or notification in change of policy make any sense?
I checked their web site this morning and there is no mention of this.
Chowhounders, how would you feel?
