10 Emotional Stages of Waiting for Your Pizza

That doorbell sound is taking sooooo long


We’re sure we can all agree that pizza is one of mankind’s greatest gifts. In fact, we’d wager that a good many of us would list down pizza as the incomparable love of our lives. After all, it’s beautiful, comforting, non-judgmental, and so delicious — what’s not to love? Needless to say, we’ve all formed an intense attachment to pizza, and it’s not shocking that we go through an emotional roller coaster whenever we find ourselves waiting for it to arrive.  

You suddenly feel that oh-so-familiar craving for pizza, so you pick up the phone and dial the delivery number you know by heart.
j/k you actually just press speed dial 2  (pizza is life).

Your usual order is on the tip of your tongue, but then the speaker on the other end gets you excited over a new pizza flavor. You decide to go for it because #YOLO
Just hearing about Shakey’s new Scallop Primo Pizza, a seafood pizza loaded with baby scallops, crab kani, cheddar cheese, basil strips, and parsley flakes, is making your mouth water. It sounds like the perfect summer treat!

Now that you’ve ordered, you feel a blast of unbearable excitement.
The pizza is coming! It’s going to be delicious and cheesy and all that is wonderful in the world!

The anticipation mounts, and you begin daydreaming of your first bite into that hot, crispy, savory perfection.
Your tastebuds are tingling already. You're very ready to get your fill of that scallops-and-crab goodness!

The hunger is real. And so is the struggle of having to keep your excitement in check.
Your eyes are glued to the door.

Impatience starts to claw at you. The honeymoon period is over, and you can feel yourself becoming more and more hangry as the long wait for the pizza stretches out before you.
It’s been 10 minutes. WHERE IS THE PIZZA?!

Paranoia creeps in.
Did you really order a pizza, or was that just an elaborate hallucination? Was that your neighbour’s doorbell, or yours? OMG, did the pizza guy arrive while you were in the bathroom, and now the pizza is gone forever?!?!?

You’ve nearly lost all hope that the pizza would arrive anytime soon. BUT THEN—
YAS! The pizza is heeeeeeeere. Now you're just moments away from tasting that scrumptious mix of seafood toppings on a perfectly baked, perfectly crispy thin crust. 

You go through the motions of paying the pizza delivery man in a daze, your mind already on the gastronomic heaven hiding inside the box.
You get a bit overwhelmed with emotion, and even have to wipe a small happy tear away. (Or maybe that's drool, you're not sure.)

You open the pizza box and find yourself struck speechless by the breathtaking beauty inside. The delicious smell wafts up and in a half-blind craze, you pick up a slice and finally — finally! — sink your teeth into the pizza. SHEER BLISS.

This is what it means to have all your dreams come true! You've been fantasizing about this brand new pizza flavor since you heard about it, and now you can't help but moan over the seafood flavours bursting in your mouth.
