Let this be a lesson: don’t mess with people that handle your food.
Video of car dealership employees in Westport, Massachussetts harassing a pizza delivery guy has led to online outrage. It starts off with the delivery driver named Jarrid Tansey from Palace Pizza returning $7 to the F&R Auto Sales that he thought was a tip. The total bill was just over $42 and the dealership workers gave Tansey two twenties and two fives. According to Boston.com, Tansey confirmed that they didn’t need change at the time. After an apparent change of heart, the dealership called the pizza place and asked Tansey to return the tip. Things didn’t go well after that.
“It just doesn’t make sense why you’d hand me a bill that you were just gonna have me drive back here to give you back anyway,” Tansey says in the video. “I’m not mad, I just had to waste my resources coming back here.”
But the office workers didn’t back down, with one telling Tansey to get “out the door before I put my foot in your a**.” Another worker threatens to call the manager of the pizza place and have Tansey fired.

The video was originally posted to YouTube on the dealership’s account, putting the blame on the delivery guy. It’s now private after viewers became outraged and say the dealership was in the wrong.
Palace Pizza has received supportive calls from across the country. There’s even a GoFundMe page dedicated to raising a good tip for Tansey that is already past $1,800.
The owner of the dealership and his son also showed up at Palace Pizza in person on Wednesday to offer an apology.
