A Westport, Massachusetts car dealership, F&R Auto Sales, is in hot water after verbally harassing a pizza delivery driver from Palace Pizza and posting the footage on the internet. Thinking they would be supported for their behavior, the dealership workers posted the video on YouTube, which has since been made private once they realized how irate people were at the way they treated Jarrid Tansey, the delivery driver.
According to Uproxx Web Culture, “Tansey had delivered food to the employees at F&R Auto Sales last Saturday for an order totaling just over $42. He was given $50 in two twenties and two fives, and being that he was given an entire extra superfluous $5 bill one might assume that the extra money was a tip, which would also have amounted to about 18% of the bill. Even so, Tansey still asked whether or not they needed change which was supposedly declined.”
When Tansey returned to his work he was told by his manager that the dealership had called and complained that they wanted their change back. Tansey then had to return back to the dealership to return the money. The footage of his return is shown in the video:
“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 are adamant about their position in the video. “So listen: The manager apologized once for you. Do you want him to apologize again for you?” the worker in blue says.
“Out the door before I put my foot in your ass,” a female office-worker in green says. “Get the f—ing owner and the manager on the phone, I want that mother-f—er done,” another man in the office says after Tansey leaves. “I want him fired.”
Now that the posting of the video has backfired on the business, the owner of the dealership and his son have since apologized to the Palace Place. However, that has not stopped the many people who have viewed the video from harassing the business and leaving bad reviews on Yelp and other review sites in retaliation for their behavior.
Karma sure is a bitch.
