DoorDash Delivery Guy Fired After He Tells Woman ‘F**k You’ For 25% Tip

DoorDash has had to fire a delivery guy who had a meltdown after receiving a 25% tip from a customer. While we all know tipping culture can be a bit out of control in America, it’s pretty much expected that you give delivery drivers around 20% of an order total. So, when Lacey Purciful handed the DoorDash employee $25 for a $20 order, she thought she was in the clear. Not so!

In doorbell footage of the delivery taking place, the employee can be heard saying, “I just wanna say it’s a nice house for a $5 tip.” While that’s pretty ballsy and many people wouldn’t have responded with kindness, Lacey simply said “You’re welcome!” and ended the interaction. However, the driver wasn’t feeling it — she got a big “F**k you” in return.

Lacey posted footage of the interaction on TikTok, where plenty of commenters pointed out that 25% was a more than generous tip. Others said they’d have told the driver to “shove it up his a**” or they would have “told him to give it back if he was unhappy with it.” After all, her order was only $20, for goodness’ sake!

Many people encouraged Lacey to report the incident to DoorDash, for which she has a monthly subscription, and she did. The company later revealed that the driver in question is no longer part of the company.

“Respectfully asking for a tip is acceptable but abusing or harassing someone is never acceptable,” it said in a statement.

“We’ve removed this Dasher from our platform and reached out to the customer. Our rules exist to help ensure everyone who uses our platform – Dashers, customers, merchants – have a safe and enjoyable experience. We expect everyone to treat others with respect and we will enforce our rules fairly and consistently.”

Well, that’ll teach him to be greedy!
