When I order pizza, I use a fake name.

Domino's in my area never ask for a name. They just ask for an address and phone #

Edited to add that I never order pizza anyway. My family only eat home-made cooked from scratch with all organic ingredients nutritious food.

In many communities the local police departments make "deals" with local businesses, ie, motels, phone companies, pizza places like Dominos, taxi companies, to look for suspicious behaviour.  In the case of the pizza delivery man, he is on the lookout for drug use in the house as well as underage drinking.  In many of these circumstances, the drivers and owners are paid a fee, like fifty dollars, for every ticket or arrest.  I hope that gives you an idea as to what the concern would be.  Cable tv people are also notorious for this kind of thing.  The lesson here is to not let anyone have access to the inside of your house unless you trust them fully.  Call the cable company and ask for the self-install model and do it yourself.  I also agree to use a fake name when ordering anything.  Or should I say "pen name"?  Pay your bills and you should minimize any problems this might result in.

Well, when I was delivering for Dominos (first in the early 70s, then again in the mid 90s) I was on the lookout for drug use. Not from any request from the JBTs or my boss, just 'cause I figured sharing a bowl was as good a tip as any cash and if I got a cash tip also; bonus. :rolleyes:  I can't think of any driver I knew who would turn narc. A large percentage of restaurant workers are included in the set of people who use drugs.
