Everyone who's ever flown international knows what a hassle it can be. Checking your passport, going through customs- it's way more complicated than flying domestic. Sometimes though, the trouble starts before you even leave home!
Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, posting as @stoolpresidente on TikTok, did everything by the book for his international flight- got to JFK airport with plenty of time through spare, made it through security, etc. But as Tom Petty once sang, "The waiting is the hardest part"- especially if you're hungry like Dave was!
Hey, sometimes the simplest stuff can get to you while you're waiting for a long international flight- doubly so if you're getting hangry. It also sounded like a tough time for the woman hustling behind the counter! Did nobody show up for work at the food court that day?
That might not be that far from the truth... that, or it's always disorganized behind the scenes! Some commenters had personal experience behind the counter there. "I used to work there few years ago it’s a s**tshow. I had to take orders and make pizza and sandwiches at the same time," recalled @ptgmx. That sucks both for the workers at the food court, and for the passengers waiting for their long-haul flights!
And to add insult to injury, you know that floppy little slice had to be obscenely overpriced too. "Not to mention that pizza was probably like $15… I hate the international terminals at JFK," sympathized @supgirlitsben. "Dollar Tree pizza for $23😂," quipped @blackjack998. LOL, but seriously though!
Sadly, there's not much you can do when it comes to awkward situations like this. You just gotta sit back and take what life throws at you- even if it's subpar pizza. Let's just hope Dave finally found some good Japanese food once he touched down in London!
