Some people are generous with their tips and others can be stingy. But most people can generally agree if you order something to be delivered, giving a tip is not just a recommended option. It’s pretty much freaking expected of any decent human being. Unfortunately the employees of F&R Auto Sales in Westport, Massachusetts didn’t feel the need to do so.
After making a $42 pizza order, they handed their delivery guy two $20 bills and two $5 bills. The delivery guy, assuming that the two 5’s were meant to be the tip (probably because he assumed they were capable of basic math), and left. The F&R Auto Sales people were so incensed that a delivery guy expected an $8 tip that they called the pizza place and made him return their change.
You might be wondering where this video came from? It came from F&R Auto Sales. They thought it was so funny that they got their money back, they posted the video on their YouTube channel. Eventually they made the video private because they look like complete assholes in it, but it was already ripped and aired on other channels.
Luckily the response to F&R’s douchebaggery has been entirely negative. Their Facebook, Yelp, Google+ and pretty much any other website that records customer feedback has been flooded by Internet users who found out about their behavior and decided to give their own “tips.”
I guess the bright side is F&R will really corner the “deplorable human beings” market going forward.
