The Peoria Civic Center - Sections 8 & 9

I attend all of the home games for the Bradley Braves college men basketball team here at the Peoria Civic Center in the middle of Illinois. There are ushers and there are ushers. This ***-can is in his mid fifties with a balding head. Should you yourself be making your way to any event at this exposition - sports theater, do all you can in sitting any where away from sections 8 and 9. It is patently obvious this man has no social life to speak of to any degree. There are no posted rules of attending any where in this sanctum for *** holes, but, should you manage to slow to a stop in any area of where this ***-goblin is, he will be on top of you in seconds as though you had shot some one of the most important caliber salivating at his opportunity of showing you and all who are watching just how tough a *** he really is telling you you can not stand there as you might be in the way of some one. Especially if you are there pre-game event by almost 45 minutes when you can count on two hands how many people are there at this time. There is an upper level and a lower level to this house of ***. This means there are stair cases in every section leading up or down depending on your direction with a small area of space to, again, stand for a length of time longer than two milli-seconds. You take your life in your own hands doing so, again, especially if THERE IS NO ONE ELSE UP THERE IN THE UPPER BOWL BEHIND YOU IN EITHER OF THESE SECTIONS WHICH IS ALL OF THE *** TIME because agent ***-breath will be on top of you before you have even time to realize you are there in the dreaded sections 8 and 9. Humor yourself some Bradley game. Attend the event sitting some where else availing yourself enough time of walking close to this area in the civic center to watch this *** goblin in action. He is very easy to spot. He is always pissed. Same bald spot. ***-evil glasses on at all times. It is also easy to be seen how happy with himself this human debris is every event. He has no tact to speak of as well.

Pizza Hut needs new managers in central Illinois

I have no car. Not out of choice. Simply do not have one. Hence, delivery from places to eat is convenient. Two nights ago had a chance of ordering pizza from one of three local establishments. The last three times I have ordered pizza from Pizza Hut Delivery from the 425 North Western Avenue location here in Peoria, my order has been so south of satisfactory you have to wonder here now as a reader why on Earth I would ever go back. Regardless, I did. Mind you, the pizza was in the least, edible. A hint above tolerable. You could say and agree I went with the flow. This time, however, I paid twenty dollars for ONE PIZZA !!! tipping the delivery dude because of how badly he was feeling from how up to me no one had given him any money. I know. I know. I should have told him to go talk to president osama. Any way. I tipped him, he went his way, I stepped back in to my humbled abode and went about feasting on my much waited for meal. I ordered this pizza on line much as I had the last several times, this time going way - over - way out of my way of instructing the cooks there on Western Avenue to MAKE MY PIZZA WELL DONE, CUT THE DA** THING IN SQUARES AND PUT EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA SAUCE ON IT!!!!! I opened the box. Mind you again, I work on line and was in the middle of quite a bit of work. So, I had enough to deal with to begin with before beginning the soon to come fun of seeing what indeed had been dropped off at my home in this new Pizza Hut box. To say there was less than no sauce on my pie would be speaking generously. Cut markings were there all over the pizza indicating it had been first cut in to triangles before how I had asked in squares. So, there it was my sauce-less pizza in half and third squares neatly resting in the box cooked to an almost done state of being. But, alas, believing this to be the end of the story with my 'friends there on Western Avenue in the Pizza Hut there' would be a grave mistake. Recall. I have no car. This facet of my life limits things I can or do take the time to do. Obviously. Why else would I be ordering delivery? [Ya' think?] Two days ago I received the pizza disaster. I saved everything in my kitchen. Receipt. Copy of the order placed on line. And the pizza certainly not ever fit to eat. Today, I finally had a means of getting to and fro and took all of these, if you will, proofs, to the notorious 425 North Western Avenue 'home' address. A portly young woman asks me upon my arrival if I needed any assistance. I told her all off the above. Her face went completely blank. She signals the manager to take care of me. 'No problem', I am thinking. This really is no big deal as it is all I am going to ask him is what steps there are I need to be and have not been taking to simply get the pizza I want AND PAID FOR delivered to my address. Right? There is also an American etiquette of business where the customer is always right. I have been active in some way in the retail world since I was only ten years old and the presumption of this convenience always has been at the top of my mind. I am 47 years old today, by the way. So, my going in to this Pizza Hut believing an amicable solution will be reached was in the least expected. As I said, I entered calmly, quietly, respectfully, aware of all I needed to be with all copies of what should have been necessary for this happied ending. The manager, who did his best at and of keeping me from being able to read his name tag asked me: "What are you going to do with this?" pointing at my pizza. Needless to say, he had watched all of what had gone on ahead of his turn at talking to me and heard ALL of what I had told the other worker. Remember now, AT TEN YEARS OLD I knew the customer was always right. This was in 1974. Today, this man of early to mid thirties thought it best to lash out at me as he did saying after his first query some highly disrespectful things to me in front of a crowd of many other customers in their shop. In his onslaught of unkindnesses, he did state it was obvious to him there was NO SAUCE ON THE PIZZA and it was no where near well done much as I had requested. Still, he thought there was nothing he needed to do in any way remedying this situation. Walking out biting my tongue, I thought to myself this is and was truly the last time I would ever be eating at Pizza Hut.
