Pizza Hut bill

i don’t know if this is true, but i received this from a forwarded email. i don’t even know how old this thing is!

“Hello everyone. I have some interesting news. I was in Pizza Hut (Sunway Pyramid) yesterday and suddenly my friend showed me the bill. The bill contains normal things (number of person, bill. number and what is ordered). But, what shocked me is that they had space called “RACE”.
I guess since we were all wearing tudung, they labelled us as 0, which means MALAY. Later, when we went to pay…we had no service charge and no tax charge.
Still in shock, I peeped into another bill in the counter. In that bill, under the race space, it was labelled as C (which I guess means Chinese). That bill had service and tax charges!!!
I started investigating. One of my Sri Lanka friends was labelled as Indian it seems and she also had to pay service and tax charges a few weeks back.
What I’m wondering is that…does anyone know about this? I find it rather strange that they charge service and tax charge using race in Pizza Hut, out of all the places!”

i feel like eating pizza, though.

  1. recently colleague went to makan at Pizza – they had to pay the taxes la! So i guess it’s not true?
    They were complaining had to pay so much just for “lousy” service tax. They are Malay.
    Funny they have a column “race” there. Maybe I’ll go have pizza just to check out the bill. *hehe*

  2. i dun think they categories ppl in paying taxes la..well..they shouldn’t do tat in the 1st place…i mean even if they do..they wouldn’t be tat stupid and put it on a bill..wut?? like ppl won’t know?
    i guess its for some sort of…chart or reviews (like wut race or how many race of ppl came to eat their stuff)..or smth liddat
    tats wut i think la

  5. i think what AvalonDevil suggested may be true, they’re just keeping track on the ‘type’ of people who eat at Pizza Hut. but if i’m some native tribe (in sarawak) or something and they put me as Chinese just because i’m fair, not so accurate also what, their records. ehehe. ;P
    let’s all go eat pizza and corner the manager on duty and ask him if this is true! hehe.

  6. Bimbobum:
    This was posted on Sin Chew Jit Poh did their own investigation of the matter. The “race” thing was for survey purposes (they still shouldn’t do it so obviously on the receipt) and the person that reported it probably mistaken about the service charge cause she was take-away customer and take-away don’t get charged. SinChew went in with chinese and malay staff on 2 different occasions and both parties were charged the service charge.

  7. it’s on the papers.
    read it there…

  9. i don’t eat pizza hut ady lar. Domino pizza is better. Oooh, if u wanna eat pizza, you should try Marco Pizza in Kelana Jaya. BEST…100000 times better than Pizza Hut.

  10. alamak. suddenly everyone confessing to be bananas. shhhhh… nothing to be proud of ok! hehe. hmm….. long time din eat bananas..
    fanky: today Domino’s in Midvalley offering RM5 for personal pan pizza take outs. eheheh. but only 4 choices, aloha chicken, tandoori, vege galore and pepperoni…. so boring, man.

  11. domino’s to me is only good in home deliveries..well if u guys wan good pizza..ask from the italian football team la…they make piza outta my czech team earlier jus now…italy 2-0 czech…WHYYYYYY??? T.T

  12. just had pizza hut a couple of days ago. didn’t notice the “Race” on the bill … but I did get charged for government tax and service charge. boo.

  13. We should get hold of a receipt, publish in Malay Mail and question the management about this. If they want to apologise, we don’t accept..we force them to belanja us eat pizza for life.

  14. frostie : how to flip they need to do tat? kekekee
    frank : i tot u dun like pizza hut…now asking for life summore…mati la liddat…BaKuTeh (no offence la man) also cannot eat…

  15. ehehehe… fanky, u contradict yourself ;P
    they are tactless in their survey la. stupid dum dum.
    don’t you think paying 15% worth of taxes is ridiculous? my cousin told me that you can actually question the management (let’s say, in a shop which you suspect is not entitled to charge service tax) to show the licence that they are allowed to charge service tax. the licence is issued by the IRB.
