When a girl and her friends received four boxes of pizza for free from Shakey’s because the delivery man failed to bring their order on time, she was so happy about it that she shared it on social media but many netizens slammed her for the post.
According to Tin Tin, she and her friends ordered four boxes of pizza from Shakey’s on Father’s Day, at 4:30PM. The restaurant staff who received their order assured them that their food will be delivered within an hour and that they will pay nothing if the delivery is late.
The call ended at 4:35PM and the countdown began.
At 5:20PM, Tin Tin and her friends were beginning to feel excited that they might get the pizzas for free. She called the restaurant again and received confirmation that the delivery will be free after 5:35PM.
At the 5:35PM mark, they were rejoicing.
When the delivery man arrived at 5:50PM, they made sure to ask whether he would have to pay if they were late in delivering the food. After they were told that the store deducts the bill from the branch’s late dispatch budget, the group rejoiced.
But netizens weren’t pleased with what Tin Tin and her friends did. Many said that they should have paid for the food even if the restaurant promised it would be free if the delivery is late. Others accused Tin Tin of not having money to pay for the pizza.
Many were also not pleased that she seemed overjoyed over the free pizza – well, who wouldn’t be?
Despite these accusations, however, Tin Tin remained steadfast that 1) they had money to pay for the order had it arrived on time, 2) she only posted about the matter to prove that Shakey’s really makes good of its promise, and 3) they clarified with the delivery man that he wouldn’t pay for the items.
Do you think this was fair?
