The News Minute| August 11, 2014| 9.37 am On 8 August, Udit Sathaye, an automobile junkie and anti-garbage guy as he describes himself on Twitter uploaded a series of pictures. The pictures showed a Dominos delivery personnel from the pizza chain's outlet on Warje, Pune riding a bike with the Domino's fibre box, that is used to deliver pizzas. But  instead of pizzas, the box was being used to carry garbage. Sahaye quickly clicked pictures of this act and uploaded on Twitter.  GARBAGE IS BEING CARRIED BY @dominos_india IN THE SAME BOX IN WHICH THEY DELIVER PIZZA! (Warje outlet,Pune) @dominos pic.twitter.com/ntf270hAAE — Udit Sathaye (@uditss) August 8, 2014 As people started retweeting and commenting generously on the pictures tagging Dominos India, Sathaye told Mid Day that he received a call from Dominos Mumbai office and then the West Zone head. Dominos apologised, but wanted Sahaye to delete the picture.  But what is surprising is Domino's reply. Dominos has sent a reply to most people who were tagged in conversations on Twitter about the garbage box.  @always_salil @dhanyarajendran We request you to read this: pic.twitter.com/8hnEdp3lHl — Domino's Pizza India (@dominos_india) August 10, 2014 Dominos calls it a one off act of omission and says they have sacked two employees including the restaurant manager. But Domino's reaction to Sathaye's tweet and not closing down the outlet doesn't instil confidence says most Twitteratis. "We have a team of personnel to monitor and ensure the standards and hygiene procedures."

We are too tolerant towards bad quality. @dominos_india — sanjay sarma (@nick_sarma) August 10, 2014 @nick_sarma Totally agree! And here they shamelessly say that it was a "one off incident" https://t.co/jpIWwtgNaB @dominos_india — Udit Sathaye (@uditss) August 10, 2014
