I still don't understand why anyone would spend £16 on a pizza from Dominos when you can get one made in Lewes for nearly £10 less.

I have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Pizza Pronto except that I've enjoyed their products a couple of times.

Check it out here »

Certainly seems busy. Lots of people trying it - remains to be seen whether they come back as repeat customers. Nice to have another busy shop in our precinct.

No one pays full price at dominos, there's always a deal for 2 for 1 on pizzas.

Pedant, try to rationalise your capitals. Generally; proper nouns, beginning of a sentence, 'I' and titles/headings.
What on earth do you mean by 'future tense'? There's really no such thing, certainly nothing that can be conjugated in the way you ask.
Indeed, your whole understanding of verb forms looks rather nebulous. If I were you I'd steer clear of grammar criticisms unless you really know what you're talking about, you're just leaving yourself wide open.

Not for me. Ringmer has a lot of take aways and they all survive. Indian, chippy, Domino's not bad for a small village.

Ordered 3 pizzas from pizza pronto at the weekend....delicious!!!!
Saying that whats wrong from ordering at Dominos one time then Pizza Pronto another time...
Why open another pub if there is already a pub....people like variety and visiting different establisments!

A monopoly is bad news. A healthy competition brings better service and sensible prices.

You got it Pronto, first prize and a gold star to you my friend!
It's about the c-words, competition, customers and cash are king.
I love Pizza and will add Domino's to my list of preferred suppliers,
but my children's favorite pizza in Lewes is Famiglia/Lazzatti.

Pedant - surely it should be 'I will have' not 'I will of'.

Jim, normally competition would bring prices down. However the curious thing about this is that the pizzas from Dominos seem to cost nearly three times as much as those from the local supplier. Everyone tells me that no-one pays full price as "there's always a deal". Well, forgive me for being naive, but why don't they just offer pizzas for half the price and be done with it? Even then, they're more expensive than the existing competition. So I'm not at all sure how this constitutes competition.

I'm not particularly bothered. I very would only rarely order a takeaway pizza in any case, so this isn't about me at all. I'm just genuinely puzzled.

There's enough crap in a pizza, you may as well just go and ask to be injected with diabetes and be done with it.

I am unlikely to order a pizza from anywhere. I posted to remind people of the principles of competition. However, a take-away kebab is of better quality and cheaper from the Casbah in the bottleneck. especially if you have a Rooks card 15% off. (other kebab takeaways are available).

I just thought I'd mention, as nobody here seems to have been awake when grammar was being taught: it's I SHALL, you will... etc.

Will is NOT a future tense, its present tense. Think about it - it modifies present tense verbs to indicate the future, as does 'shall' and a handful of infinitive forms.
One often finds with pedants that they show off their little bit of knowledge then step outside their limit and make utter idiots of themselves.
You've done this before Pedant haven't you? Why do you bother?
On 13 Nov 2012 at 10:55pm Pedant the Really Ancien wrote:
Now now children! Don't fall out over trifles. I take Pedant's point which I assume is that there is no verb "to of". "To have" is shortened in speech to "'ve" but not written "of". I hope this clears things up and you can both hold hands again.

I'm right though, aren't I?

First, let's have your version of the future tense of the verb "to have". Then we will all be more educated.
