In the past I have enjoyed many orders from this establishment. Especially their wings and how well they do their specialty pizzas. I enjoyed many of them around the time of Hurricane Irma.
But lately I've noticed a bad change in their employees and customer service.
Last night (10/1/2021) at 10:31pm I was checking my mail. I was only maybe 6 inches out in the street looking into my mail box. At 10:32pm, a white car (4 doors), sped by me. It had a Papa Johns topper on top of it. It almost hit me. It was driving too close to the curb. It seemed to speed up a little bit just before it mowed down some ducks. In the distance I thought I heard someone yell. I didn't think anything of it until this woman and her dog were walking by. The woman asked if I saw anything and mentioned the car almost hit her coming around the corner. I told her what happened thus far and I only heard her yelling very faintly. She told me she tried to call Papa Johns to make a complaint, but she was told "We don't have anyone here like that." and she was hung up on. She wished me a goodnight and continued walking her dog.
When I went back inside I got my phone back from my older kitty (Little Puss), whom was sleeping on it, and called Papa Johns. I spoke to a female manager. She told me that they don't have any employees there that have a white car. She slammed the phone down.
Now fast forward to today. In the middle of the afternoon I called Papa Johns again. I thought I might have better luck with another manager. I mean, what are the odds that two would try to protect that driver? Apparently GREAT. The call didn't go well. I was very polite, even when he was very rude. He told me that the things that go on top of the cars all have GPS trackers. The first time he mentioned it, his exact words were "There's GPS on all car toppers and my driver was not speeding last night.". Right away, but politely, I called him out on the fact that he made that determination after speaking with me for hardly a few minutes and not obviously having enough time to gather and verify that information. I asked why he would cover for him. I asked simply and plainly. He went on tiny rant saying how records "will be sure to show" that he wasn't speeding. He then repeated back my number and address, since caller ID automatically pulls it up since I have ordered before. He told me not to order anything anytime soon or I won't like what I get. Then he told me if I wanted to have a good day to drop it and not call again. His last words he said to me were, "Goodbye, you sound like a n**g*r.". He said it sort of low as if he was avoiding the risk of anyone hearing him.
A friend of mine that I talked about this with has told me I shouldn't have called that Papa Johns, but should have just complained directly to corporate itself. The point made was now they have time to do what they can to cover their hides. That was the moment I thought back to what that manager said when I called today; "will be sure to show". Also I thought back to how quickly that manager seemed to make the judgement that driver was not speeding. Combine that with attitudes received. Heavy implication that things can and might be changed to feign innocence. I wouldn't doubt it since 2 managers at that establishment have shown they're not above covering up employee wrongdoings, if they can, and making veiled threats.
This use to be such a great place to order from. The food is likely still as great as I remember, but it isn't worth dealing with their customer service when they are wrong and you are right.
UPDATE#1: Received a message from "Director Of Operations" of the Jacksonville and Orange Park Papa Johns restaurants, "Nick Arturo", messages me to defend the actions of the driver mentioned in this blog while refusing to acknowledge the veiled threats and racist remark by the 2nd manager I spoke with.
UPDATE#2: Ran into someone that knows "Nick Arturo" that apparently had a bad experience with him. I got the impression he's cause this woman much grief.
UPDATE#3: Papa Johns "director of operations" for all Jacksonville and Orange Park FLORIDA area Papa Johns, Nick Arturo, posts a threatening post on the forums towards myself ( @CaptainVG313)

I've been out of touch with Fear The Walking Dead for some time now. So it's about time I start catching up. In order to catch up by the Season 7 premiere (October 17, 2021), I need to watch 3 episodes today and 1 episode every day up until the day before the season 7 premiere.
So now I got my The Walking Dead marathon spoken of here.
AND..... NOW I have Fear The Walking Dead to catch up. I know I am doing it a little slowly, but it gives me time to absorb all that I've missed and anything that might be confusing to me.
Disclaimer: I am in no way saying, or implying, that the entire soap opera, or Young and the Restless fandom, is toxic. I am merely pointing out a toxicity within.
Just as I woke up for the day, I took notice of some trolling regarding @CaptainVG313's opinion about a character within the Young and the Restless show. 2 friends of ours, @Mandy Girl and @Zenon, took it upon themselves to have her back. They stood up for her and made it known they shared her opinion. That which can be seen by viewing the responses to this tweet.
The troll, that I firmly believe instigated the trolling upon @CaptainVG313, and then upon @Mandy Girl and @Zenon for having her back, is BlushOrchid of Twitter. All with this particular tweet and a series of tweets afterwords.
WeAreInOur20s of Twitter chose to respond to @Mandy Girl. She does so in such a way so as to encourage those viewing to troll. @Mandy Girl never referred to BlushOrchid of Twitter as a Summer fan. In saying "Summer clone" she was implying she is behaving quite like Summer Newman of Young and the Restless. Any sensible person that watches Young and the Restless would have seen that, but these people choose not to acknowledge.
BlushOrchid of Twitter chose to quote their own tweet in order to troll @CaptainVG313 for ignoring them and @Mandy Girl for standing up for our friend @CaptainVG313. Being they used the "#YR" hashtag, they were hoping to get them trolled; possibly harassed.
WeAreInOur20s of Twitter took it upon herself to wrongly and falsely accuse @Zenon of having 3 accounts. The very reason that @Zenon's tweet does not show when being quoted is because WeAreInOur20s of Twitter is blocked by her. Accusing one of having multiple accounts tends to be said by one whom is attempting to get one bullied, harassed, and/or trolled. This is quite common amongst bullies and habitual internet trolls and is used when the victim has people who have their back. The purpose of such a claim is to convince those watch that it is the same person so they are most likely to join in.
This is the tweet, in question, that WeAreInOur20s of Twitter had decided to quote.
Quite a few people responded to join in in hopes to ignite/carry on quite a bit more trolling.
Anyone that took it upon themselves to respond to WeAreInOur20s of Twitter tweet (archived here: https://archive.is/iPHMa), is guilty of attempting to keep the trolling and harassment going and quite heavily implying they are supportive of such behavior. That, in my opinion, is just as bad as them targeting @Zenon , and our friends @Mandy Girl and @CaptainVG313 themselves.
All this trolling and crazy behavior because @CaptainVG313 stated her opinion on a character (Summer Newman) on the Young and the Restless show.
As people, we are all entitled to our own opinions. But we are not entitled to attack other people for their opinions. Differing opinion does not give one license to troll, harass, or bully another. It does not give anyone any right to try to encourage such behaviors upon those they do not share an opinion with. @CaptainVG313 never said that what she had said was a fact. It is quite obvious it was an opinion. But BlushOrchid of Twitter chose to take their disagreement to a whole new level.
While the entire Young and the Restless fandom is most definitely not toxic, I have noticed quite alot of toxicity when it comes to fans of one Summer Newman, a character on the show. While I do believe that not all Summer Newman fans are toxic, a great majority are.
Edit! (last updated: 5/2/2021 8:56pm Eastern Time)
WeAreInOur20s continues on with a rather often used bullying tactic used by bullies when their victim has friends and/or support.
It is firmly believed that WeAreInOur20s is making an attempt to play the role of the victim and hide from her atrocious actions in her recent temporary Twitter deactivation.

When I got back on, I was still on the planet Aeos. After speaking with Captain Grafton, I met Arumat of the Eldarian 13th Independant Armored Division. He has a very bad attitude. I did a quest that involved finding a patient. Once I did I spoke with Captain Grafton and Supreme Commander Gaghan. Edge was made the new captain of the SRF-003 Calnus.
Upon departing Aeos, I participated in some Private Actions. Watching how Welch interacted with Faize was very comical. I talked with Faize in the main area of the Calnus. The conversation looked very familiar. I was suppose to be given choices on how to respond when talking about Crowe. And I was suppose to be able to choose whether or not to say "put a sock in it Reimi". I guess there are a few difference between the XBox360 version and this 4K HD remaster on the PS4. After this I chose to "rest until arrival".
Once I got to Lemuris, I exited the ship. In fighting the first enemy, it nearly wiped my party (Edge,Reimi,Faize) out. I rushed to Triom where the people greeted us as if we were gods. We met Ghimdo and Lymle. Once the cutscene was over, Lymle joined the party. I immediately went to this one house that would give me a free rest and had a save point. Rested. Saved.
I then decided I would head to Alanaire Citadel and get the "Treasure Sense" skill book for Lymle. I did just that while avoiding all enemies on the way. Once I got the skill book and used it on Lymle, I was able to see the locations of all treasure chests, mining points, and harvesting points. So I decided to gather all that I could. Mainly for the Party SP and EXP. I was hoping to gain maybe a level or two to help me out so I don't come near death in each battle. The SP I earned was spent on skills. Mainly the ones to help with drops.
Once I got all the treasure chests and harvesting points I could, I went to Trion to purchase a bowstring. I went back to the Calnus and worked on some item inventing. Luckily I came with with the Hunting Bow recipe before my party SP ran out. Thanks to the Eldarian Bow I bought on Aeos before leaving, I had all the ingredients to make the Hunter's Bow. After I created it, I decided to enjoy some food from Hooters that I ordered and log off.
I hate boys so much right now!
I spent 2 hours getting ready for a date. I did hair and make up. I spent so much time. The boy Greg, never showed up to meet me at Chili's! Totes rude!
I waited for like 2 hours! I found out Greg was at a friend's partying and he was drunk! I hope they like cops!
One thing I have noticed with bullying, both mild and severe forms, is that some bullies will resort to subtext instead of mentions. Subtext is a way someone can talk about someone or something without making a specific mention.
Often times it is done just enough so the victim knows it's about them and maybe a few close friends of the bully.
The common purpose of this is to provoke the victim into
1) Doing or saying something that the bully can use to make the victim look bad
2) Doing something the bully can use to take action against them to further their own false victim card.
3) Lashing out so the lies the bully tells look even more true.
4) Doing something that makes the victim look like the aggressor and the bully appear to be the victim.
Another nefarious purpose of a bully subtexting, is to create hatred regarding those they just don't like, or want to eventually hurt.
Now, how does a bully do this?
1) Lurking their social media and making vague comments about what they see. The kind that will stir up hate and possibly animosity regarding the subject. That which the bully will be vague about.
2) Post pics of what their victim has said, while blocking out what identifies them. Then saying what they need to in order to try and make it seem like what the victim said is about them. Usually accompanied by ranting and complaining for effect.
3) Makes comments about the victim regarding their looks and things about them. Just enough so the victim knows it is about them. This is to get those close to them (the bully) disgusted with the subject of their complaint/rant.
Subtext is also used for the bully to, in a way, control their victim and affect what they do and how.
What the bully hopes to accomplish?
1) The victim changes what they do, even though nothing is wrong with it, in order to avoid hurtful remarks by the bully.
2) The victim posts less to deter the bully from subtexting them.
3) The victim interacts less online to almost not at all.
4) The victim changes what they post about.
The fact of the matter is, bullies will do what bullies do regardless of what you do. They just change how they do it. So why not just continue to do what you like to do regardless of what they do. Atleast then you retain some normalcy and happiness. Plus it makes you better equipped to handle things emotionally and mentally. That's what I do.
With enough subtext over time in the manner above, the bully creates enough hatred and annoyance with the subject being spoken of vaguely. This is so when the bully identifies their subject, those who have read the subtext will have enough hatred and frustration so that if they choose to "check out" the victim, they will misjudge even the most innocent things. This is so it is harder for those checking out the victim to see that they truly aren't the problem. Also to make it harder to see the bully for who they are.
As to why bullies subtext their victims and decide to, there's a variety of reasons. But whatever the reason, the longer the bully keeps it up, the worse and more obsessed, they look.

Yesterday I was suppose to get a Nintendo Switch that I ordered from Amazon. I didn't get it. I thought it would be at my door when I got home. Later last night when I checked my email, i saw that Amazon said it was delivered.
Right then I decided to look through my video surveillance recording of when I was out. I found the thief!
My next door neighbor was the one that stole it. I thought I would resolve this peacefully. I knocked on their door. The wife answered. She told me her 2 kids were playing it and asked if I was really that much of a b***h to take it away from 2 kids. I told her I know she stole it from my front porch. She told me to run along or she'd cut me up!
So I went back to my house to call the police. When they got here, the woman told them she bought it for her kids and I had no proof. Soni showed the police the surveillance video, proof of purchase. After some checking, the police confirmed she had stolen my package and she was arrested. She got riled up as the police handcuffed her saying it's my fault she will lose work and won't be able to pay rent. She went on how it's my fault her kids won't have a place to go. My only response was what I said to the arresting officer "She chose to steal and threaten me, the fault is hers".
I found out this morning that the owner of that house she was renting is going to work on an eviction. Her arrest last night was the final nail in the coffin.

*We start off this blog by talking about ECW's most bloodthirsty feud: Gaby Lozoya vs. Susana Almeida. These two Mexican weather superstars have been vying for the hearts of their male audiences for years. From the weather studio to the wrestling ring, these two have been exciting their audience to a fever pitch. So during the relaunch of ECW late last year, it was decided that the two of them would share control of their brand's NWO faction. But there's a reason why the word "diva" applies to these two women. There was no way these two superstars would settle for sharing power. One had to dominate over the other, and therefore, for the last several weeks, they have been attacking each other to see who was better. The advantage so far has gone to Gaby Lozoya, whose moveset was modeled after the late Eddie Guerrero. But that doesn't mean Susana doesn't have a few tricks up her sleeve. Still, the battle continues to see which one is the dominant weather girl in the ring, and I, for one, look forward to seeing the results of this.*
