But would you expect to get pizza from a Chinese take-out restaurant?

I think you'd rather that they gave you a phone call (or electronic 
message) if they didn't have a good way of processing your pizza request.

And what would you do if the delivery person showed up with the take-out 
place's interpretation of a 'pizza'?  You sent them the order, after all!
