Fast food delivery for late night workers

RS Components is a great supplier of electrical and mechanical doobries for engineers. Phone them up at 6pm, order a few things worth pennies, and you get them next day.

Now how about this: engineers are working late on a deadline and get hungry. One of them phones RS, quoting item 652-0972, which is a 12" ham and pineapple. Instead of packing and despatching that item themselves, RS passes this order on to the nearest Perfect Pizza operation, who phone you back to confirm the order and delivery address. RS pays Perfect Pizza, your employer pays the RS invoice along with all the rest. Of course the pizza is overpriced, but the engineers don't care as their employer is paying. Your employer is happy cos you stayed late and got the job done. RS is happy cos they put 25% on the price. Whatchathink?

       Cylindrical extrusion of oleagenous carbohydrate in a monosodium-protein colloid anyone?

       sounds like cheese tap to me - ?
po, Sep 04 2002

       I think this sounds quite amusing in a very scam like way.

       The pizza could have lines of cheese running in patterns between slices of pepperoni, like an integrated circuit.

       There'd need to be an ISO pizza definition before this could proceed.

       always with the ISO annos, hmm

       What a superb idea. Cheese-and-tomato topped croissant. I love the E24 resistor code idea too.   

       Now all we need to do is stop the thing getting left lying around in Goods Inwards for five days by the mouth-breathers that "work" there ........... and no, it can't be delivered via "Security", they all have prognathic jaws and eyebrow ridges and very long arms .........

       You could deliver it wrapped in a heat-proof odour-proof container marked as emergency spares (with a delivery note). Warn security that you're expecting a courier and DrBob's yer uncle <shudder>. This all works fine so long as the delivery vehicle does not have some kind of pizza branding on the side.

       st3f: That is based on the somewhat generous assumption that the goons at the front gate can read ... "Emergency" is four syllables, they can't even pronounce it let alone read it ......
