It's one thing to be a dick and stiff the pizza delivery guy (even if the whole tipping system is kinda messed up). It's quite another thing to call him back after the hand-off, clarify that the "tip" you gave him was change you wanted back, accuse him of theft, and threaten to put your "foot in [his] a**." Amazingly, that's something that actually happened at a used car dealership in Massachusetts, which is apparently run by the most impressive set of jerks you've ever met.
In a video posted to LiveLeak that has since been removed -- but confirmed by everyone involved -- a group of employees at F&R Auto Sales viciously berate Jarrid Tansey, who had delivered some pies from Pizza Palace earlier that day. The bill had come out to slightly over $42, which F&R paid in two twenties and two fives. Tansey says he confirmed they wanted to give him the entire $50 before driving off, but apparently they had a change of heart. Because minutes later, the group called Pizza Palace demanding Tansey return with their $7. That's when the taped showdown started.
Tansey obviously wanted to know why they were wasting his time, prompting one employee to ask, "So listen: the manager apologized once for you. Do you want him to apologize again for you?" After realizing he was in the presence of true a-holes, Tansey gave up and left -- which is when two more of these brave twits yelled about how they were going to get him fired and put their cheap feet up his butt.
Once the video leaked, the Internet was quick to attack F&R. Their Yelp page was one of the first to fall, and they were soon flooded with so many irate calls that they've stopped answering their phone altogether. The dealership owner went over to Pizza Palace to apologize to Tansey personally after the fiasco blew up, and manager Adam Willoughby claims they just want to bury the hatchet and move on. But it's unclear if the sterling reputation of used car dealers will ever recover from this devastating blow.
