"I worked at a Little Caesars when I was a teenager. On a really snowy night, one of our drivers got into a car accident and sadly lost his life on his way to deliver the pizza.
The customer called in a little while after we learned about the accident and absolutely lost it that his pizza hadn't been delivered. When the manager explained the situation, he stated he did not give a crap and wanted his pizza delivered for free.
Needless to say, he got an earful from my manager and then was put onto a no-serve list."
"I used to be a delivery driver for Pizza Hut. I used to work the Sunday afternoon shifts and would have the same man order a supreme pizza every week. I was always the one to deliver his order because most of the time I was the only driver on duty at that time of day. Alan was a nice, quiet man who had a lovely front porch. One day, I didn't take his delivery for some reason. Poor Marvon took the delivery instead on the day that Alan decides to open the door stark naked. Alan wanted to show me (a small, redheaded girl) the goods, not big, black Marvon; Alan never got another delivery."
"There was a terrible apartment building right next to my house. One time we ordered pizza, and waited for at least an hour and a half before calling Pizza Inn back to figure out what was taking so long. The manager told us that the guy had left 45 minutes ago (Pizza Inn was 15 minutes from my house). So we open the door, and the pizza guy is literally knocked out in our driveway, car door wide open. Turns out the people living in the apartments jumped the fence as he was pulling up, beat him up, and then stole his money and our pizza. He was in a bad state when we came out there; he had stopped bleeding at that point but had two gashes: one on his forehead and one on the back of his head (they used a brick on him). I was 10 at the time so my dad had to call an ambulance for him, and the manager actually showed up to follow him to the hospital. Needless to say, Pizza Inn made us start picking up our pizzas, and that went for everyone in our cul de sac. Oh, and when we showed up to pick up a pizza a couple of weeks later, the manager told us the pizza guy quit as soon as he came to."
"Had this one guy who would always cuss you out. The first time I delivered to him I was just in shock so I didn't say anything, got stiffed and went on my way. The second time I delivered to him I didn't realize it was him until I pulled up to the apartment. He opens the door and starts cussing me out (it had been 15 minutes since he called in his order) about the pizza being cold (he hadn't touched it) and how I took way too long. I saw the person take the order on the phone, I threw the dough, made the pizza, I put it in the oven, I pulled it out, and cut it. I did everything but take the order.
Well, this guy caught me in a bad mood since I had been south of the train tracks all night and had already made over 10 runs (usually have 2-3 deliveries a run at this store) that night without a single tip. As he started cussing me out I politely asked him if he would like the pizza or not. He said yes, but he wanted it for free. I said something along the lines of 'Okay, you can have it for free.' I pulled it out of the bag, opened the box and just flipped it face down right on the ground and walked away. That was seriously one of the BEST feelings of my life.
I got back to the store and the shift manager pulled me into his office and asked what happened because the dude obviously called him after this whole situation. I told him what happened, other delivery drivers confirmed they had the same experience of this guy being a total jerk. The shift manager relayed all the info to the GM who relayed it to the DM. They banned the guy and I didn't get reprimanded at all."
