Quote# 85503

['Pizza Ranch' is a Christian restaurant whose vision is "to glorify God by positively impacting the world we live in".]

By Friday night I was caught up to everyone else who had been working on applying for the last two months. It was definitely a God-thing to walk in and walk out with a job!

I feel so privileged to get to work in a brand new restaurant that still smells like wood and fresh paint, to be part of the team that gets to set high standards in this not-even-open-yet franchise branch, and to work in a place where God is hung on our walls right in the front door where you come in, big and bold in our vision statement. God is good. I get to sing along to my favorite Christian artists (Casting Crowns) as I clean the buffet glass because we play either country or Christian radio. I work in a team, and I am getting to know some of the other girls. I work in an atmosphere where we smile and build each other up. I work in a family-friendly restaurant (that doesn't serve alcohol) where I'll be able to interact with lots of kids. I get to serve people and make them happy! I get to bring out their favorite kind of pizza!

We have a higher calling than just making pizza and chicken. As we learned when we watched a video made by Chic-fil-A - on a computer that was on a chair which was stacked on top of a table... great makeshift movie theatre there! - it's about serving, about making a difference in our communities. As our mission statement says, Pizza Ranch is a ministry opportunity to give our guests our very best - Legendary service! And I get to work in such a place as this. God is good!

We open on Monday.

I get to be the first one to welcome the guests to Pizza Ranch!

The Shadow

Did they serve pizza and chicken at the Last Supper?
Just wonderin'.

I understand that naked servers handing out free food and c-notes would make people happy. Legendary service, indeed.

Someone enthusiastic about their work who likes their colleagues? I approve.

Hmm. I've checked my bible, and there's nothing there about pizza. It does warn against gluttony and avarice, though.

Awwww... how sweet.
Little Naomi got her first job.

1/7/2012 3:44:09 PM


Referencing her love of Christ does not a fundie make. This girl seems like a sweet person who wants to make kids happy. Seeing how chipper she is, I probably wouldn't hang out with her, but still. . .

Oh FYI Naomi, working in a restaurant is awful. I work summers at a clam bar and I only stay on because the money's good. Screaming, bratty kids, rude and entitled customers, and foot pain that leaves you hobbling even if you have good shoes is all part of the restaurant experience.

If you think the best way to glorify god is to make people happy, eh, you know, that can't be bad. Good luck with the job!

This sounds like a great person with a great attitude.

Is it Brave New World where the embryos are injected (by Alphas) with different amounts of alcohol to stunt their mental development, in order to produce Deltas and Gammas that will enjoy a life of menial servitude? I remember where the elevator operator gets tears in his eyes and says, "Roof! O, roof!" when he gets to the top, being the pinnacle of his daily routine of otherwise mind numbing drudgery.
I am glad for Naomi. She may well enjoy her life of flipping burgers - somebody has to do it. Better someone who likes it and won't spit on the meat. But "God on the wall", Xtian and C&W "music" {{shudder}} please let me know where this place is so I can steer clear of it.

I wonder if the garlic bread comes with a likeness of Jesus burned onto it.

The Duelist

This doesn't belong here. This is about as "fundy" as an invitation to a church dinner.

1/7/2012 4:19:17 PM


Eh... sounds like Chick-fil-A with pizza instead of chicken. They even compared the two themselves.

1/7/2012 4:27:13 PM


wow, and here i thought country music was the work of the devil (to play and to listen to).

i feel bad for her ungodly (pardon the pun) naiveté. she's gonna get one hell of a reality check. otherwise, good luck girl!

by the way, checkmate: once again, you made me groan. where do you get those puns? they're awesome!

I've tried to go to Pizza Ranch with one of the few times I get to eat out with my dad but they're closed on sundays. Thanks for ruining that day for me pizza ranch

Sounds more like a believer who is incredibly happy about finding a job rather than a fundamentalist.


1/7/2012 5:04:48 PM


I will withhold my judgment until I get to taste this pizza.

1/7/2012 5:13:52 PM


Why does this remind me of The Handmaiden's Tale?

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "How would you like to own your own Pizza franchise?"

1/7/2012 5:16:02 PM

I have never walked into a "christian" business that wasn't filled with the stench of snobby sociopathic misery and fear. They may write bubbly bullshit like this (in fact most of them do write just like this) but when you see them face to face you better watch out.

1/7/2012 5:23:03 PM

But... but... but... pizza without beer?

1/7/2012 5:49:00 PM


Yeah, this sounds harmless, but it's people with this sort of outlook on the world that fuel the nut jobs of the religious right with money and votes.

It's fundy enough to worry me.

1/7/2012 6:02:56 PM


I work in a family-friendly restaurant (that doesn't serve alcohol)

I bet their chicken is greasy and filled with all sorts of crap and the pizza piled high with toppings.

Mmm, crap...

We walked in and waited at the counted for a minute or so while we watched the Manager, Brock, slap a female employee numerous times in the butt with a towel as another female employee was standing a few feet away working. I cannot believe action like this takes place in a business, in front of customers!! This is sexual harassment and I would be happy to file a formal complaint. Finally after about one and a half minutes of "flirting" with her, he came to help us.

1/7/2012 6:50:26 PM


This isn't quite "raving loony fundie" territory...but as a proud Italian-American, I don't trust pizza from retail chains. I would rather get a pie from the old-fashioned, locally-owned, pizzeria a few blocks away. (I am, however, worried that it might be a Mafia front.)

1/7/2012 7:12:01 PM

Not fundie at all. Can someone please tell me why this is worse than the Saudi stuff I submitted last week (which DIDN'T make it on here)?

1/7/2012 7:21:26 PM


She's living the dream. Good for her.

Not a clue. I've submitted some truly hateful bigotry that didn't make the cut too, yet this naiively over-enthusiastic blog post from a seemingly nice kid landing a new job is held up for ridicule?

Having this quote here just makes us look like jerks, are we sure we don't have a troll on the quote selection team?
