    Moral Pizza Dilemma

    After the owner's racist remark, our household and apparently lots of other people stopped buying Papa John's pizza. Now to try to win back customers they have sent us enough rewards points to get several free pizzas. You only pay a small delivery charge that does not cover their costs, and whatever you choose to tip, which goes to the employee not the business.

    My son asked me, is it better to not get the pizza, or to make them lose money by getting the free pizza? What do you think?

    The franchise owners and employees haven't offended you have they? They're the ones most directly affected by your boycott.

    I read this title as “Morel Pizza dilemma” and immediately thought to myself “why is that a dilemma? Yes one should always have morel mushrooms on your pizza if you can get them! “

    Haha, No I am not food oriented, ha ha


    I don’t know how to answer that, it is a good question if one wants to punish the restaurant corporation. I can never remember who is good and who is bad. I drove past a Chick-fil-A the other day and just remember that there is lots of controversy and they were boycotts but I couldn’t remember if I should or should not boycott.

    I love chick fila so much. We didn’t have one until a year ago. I am a hypocrite because I eat there. I won’t shop at hobby lobby though. I would not take the free pizza unless I intended to patronize them again.
