The internet defends pizza guy cheated out of a tip by rude customers

The internet loves a good bit of revenge.

THE INTERNET HAS rallied to defend a Massachusetts pizza delivery man who was cheated out of a tip by some very rude customers. reports that employees at a local car dealership in Westport gave delivery man Jarrid Tansey $50 (in two $20 bills and two $5s) to pay for a $42 bill.

After confirming that they wanted to give him the extra money as a tip, Tansey left with the change – only to discover that the dealership had called his manager, accusing him of stealing their money. When he arrived back at the dealership to return the $7 ‘tip’, the employees threatened to “put a foot up his ass” and to have him fired.

The original LiveLeak uploader claims to have found the clip on the car dealership’s own Facebook page, and that the employees seemed to think the incident was funny.

It didn’t take long for 4chan users to identify the dealership as F&R Auto Sales in Westport, Massachusetts – since then, the dealership’s Facebook and Yelp pages have been flooded with bad reviews:




People have also set up a GoFundMe page to get Tansey his tip money (and raised about $1078 extra to boot).

After being put through the ringer, the owner of F&R finally dropped by the pizza place to personally apologise to Tansey.

Lesson for the car dealership: Don’t mess with someone and expect the internet to turn a blind eye. The internet never forgives. And it never forgets.
