  1. I would worry about the staff messing with the pizza after that. Maybe a good question to ask would be what discounts can you give me today? This would add a service to the order, so a 20% discount could be good for at least a 15% tip. Why pay the same price plus tip for a pizza when you spent your money for gas and your car and your time to go get it?

  2. @JohnnieD:
    I won’t say this is the first time that I’ve noticed said brand (though I mostly ignored it), but on some level I was actually wondering why they bothered with it. I don’t park my business at Hyatt because I want to deal with a random self-catering home.

    At least for me, this is no great loss and I wouldn’t notice if Hyatt just dumped it.
