Food service industry workers know well how finicky customers can be with their orders, making one pizza customer’s specific instructions all the more hilarious.
On Feb. 26, Reddit user Rikardose shared a photo of a receipt for two medium pizzas, and two hilarious sets of instructions.
“Crust a little crisper than normal But not too crispy… if that’s not vague enough — make it like you’re taking revenge on a cheating boyfriend, BUT you still want to reconcile in the not so distant future,” the note read for the $22.27 total order.
“The gate is tricky, please don’t break it. And the spider on the porch is called Frank. Be nice to Frank, he guards the tomatoes,” the instructions added.
With the cheeky receipt going viral in the days since, nearly 18,000 up-votes and over 560 comments from Redditors in far-flung corners of the globe including England, Australia and Denmark have poured in. Not only have the funny instructions spurred former pizza delivery workers to reminisce on some of their stranger deliveries, but the post has sparked a debate on the ethics of tipping.
“Dude I used to love these sorts of deliveries. These are normally the guys that’ll toss you a five every time,” Reddit user Sanguinesce wrote.
