Delivery Driver Walks Off With Customer's Food Because He Only Gave Her An $8 As A Tip
On 13th January 2021
The wild experience was caught in Smithtown, New York, on the Ring doorbell, although it is unknown where precisely the incident took place. A frustrated driver shared her frustration with commuting 40 minutes from the neighboring town of Commack. Although Google Maps reported the drive was over 12 miles long, the distance is about seven miles away and just under 15 minutes away.
After throwing a tantrum over an $8 tip that she felt was too low given the journey she took, a food delivery driver refused to deliver food to a Long Island home.
The wild confrontation was captured in Smithtown, New York, on the Ring doorbell, but it is unclear when exactly the incident took place. The female can be seen in the clip ringing the bell and trying to get the residents to come out so that she can talk to them.
'I don't think you realize where it is coming from so I need to speak with you,' she says to a man who is completely confused by the extended encounter.
The woman continues: 'I don't think you realize the distance that it comes from because then you would have never given what you gave. So I think you can come to see me face to face. The female then asserts that to bring the consumer their food, she drove 40 minutes, an 'extremely far' distance.
'I got it to you early and so I don't think you realize where you ordered from,' the woman contends. The entirely dumbfounded client asks the woman at this moment to illustrate where she drove 40 minutes from. She describes that the sequence was from a Commack restaurant, triggering the two to get into a short spat over how far the drive was currently.
Google Maps implies that Commack is roughly five to seven miles away from Smithtown, approximately a 10 to 15-minute drive. The driver argues that that was not the case when the increased expression of the female that the drive is around 15 minutes. 'It's not. You need to try to drive it,' she says. 'I just drove it and it is 40 minutes. It is 12 and a half miles'
Before the driver finally tells the client her problem, the two keep on going back and forth.
'I feel that is still very far, so you need to adjust your tip to make it right,' she declares. 'You gave an 8$ tip.' The shocked customer quickly retorts: 'What the hell are you looking for?!'
The driver decides at this point that she isn't going to get a better tip. 'Well I'm going to bring the food back,' she says, storming off with the bag of food in hand.
DoorDash expressed in a response to Dailymail.com that they did not clarify whether the driver served for the business or whether the guy had ordered from them.
'We take our community's protection very seriously, and on the DoorDash site, such unacceptable behavior is never accepted,' they said in the release. ‘Any behavior that breaches this principle of zero tolerance is grounds for deactivation.'
