A man accidentally paid double the amount for a single pizza knowingly. He even paid a 140 per cent tip to a pizza delivery driver. After knowing his mistake the man didn’t regret what he did.
The bizarre incident happened with him after he had a few drinks with his friend. The duo got hungry after having drinks and then decided to order a pizza. When the delivery man arrived with the order, he paid $30 and also gave him a 20 per cent tip.
"The driver was about in his mid 30's, barely spoke English and he was driving a beat up car," Reddit user @32head said while narrating the incident.
The man realized that he had already made an online payment for his order when the delivery boy said “thank you!
"He said "thank you!" very enthusiastically which made me realize in about 2 seconds that I just gave him double the money for the order, which he would obviously receive as a tip," @32head said.
He realized his mistake and also going to take his money back but stopped after seeing the delivery driver’s reaction when he was going towards his car.
"He had a smile from ear to ear like he found the cure for Covid or struck gold or something. He even did this little mini jump before he hopped into his car. I'm not exactly Bill Gates, I still have debts to pay, but I'm glad I f***** up to help someone who needed the money more than I did," he added.
The pizza turned out to be super expensive as he paid twice and also tipped the driver twice.
The Reddit user further wrote, “Anyways, I felt pretty dumb after, but the joy I saw in that man made my week. Not a very interesting story, but it was pretty cool for me, as my Dad moved to Canada from across the world with only a bike and a few hundred bucks.”
"TL;DR Paid double for a pizza by being drunk. No regrets. Ok... little to no regrets," he wrote.
Meanwhile, the post prompted several reactions from delivery drivers and other users.
One of the users said, "As a former pizza delivery driver, I remember every one of you guys who tipped way beyond your means due to alcohol. I carry the stories and my gratitude is immeasurable."
“As a poor person, I've never really regretted it. I'll be like, 'Oh no, I needed that money.' But then I'm like, 'They probably needed that money too, so whatever,” another user wrote.
