Pizza Hut Delivery Man Urinates On Woman's Door After Being Denied A Tip

Posted: Updated:

Chloe Teply might think twice the next time she neglects to tip the pizza delivery guy.

A former Pizza Hut employee in Des Moines, Iowa was so ticked off after Teply denied him a tip that he allegedly pulled down his pants and urinated on her front door, KCCI reports.

"It's just one of those things where unfortunately, I don't have the money," Teply told KCCI. Security cameras at Teply’s apartment complex caught the delivery man in the act. A Pizza Hut manager, who went to the apartment building to see the footage for himself, told KCCI that the driver had later been fired.

How much do you tip on food deliveries?


Teply isn’t the only person who has found herself in hot water after neglecting to leave a tip. Earlier this year, a Texas family was locked inside a restaurant in Houston, Texas after refusing to pay an automatic 17-percent gratuity.

Recently, a woman left no tip on a $138.35 meal by signing “single mom sorry” in the tip line instead. A picture of the receipt went viral and many commenters were outraged at the patron's stinginess.

Restaurant delivery workers are often paid wages that fall well below minimum wage as much of their salary is expected to come from tips, the New York Times reports. Minimum wage for servers that receive tips is as low as $2.13 per hour in some states. The last time Congress increased the “tipped minimum wage” was in 1991.
