Furious delivery driver walks off with customer’s food because he only gave her an $8 as a tip when ordering from one town over to his Long Island home

  • The wild encounter was captured on a Ring doorbell in Smithtown, New York, but it is unclear on when exactly the incident occurred
  • An irate driver voiced her displeasure with having to drive 40 minutes from the next town of Commack
  • While she claimed the drive was over 12 miles long, Google Maps indicate that the distance is roughly seven miles away and just under 15 minutes

  • The customer scoffs at the notion, prompting the driver to take the food with her back to the restaurant in Commack

A food delivery driver refused to deliver food to a Long Island home after throwing a temper tantrum over an $8 tip that she felt was too low given the journey she took.  

The wild encounter was captured on a Ring doorbell in Smithtown, New York, but it is unclear when exactly the incident occurred. 

In the clip, the woman can be seen ringing the bell and trying to get the residents to come out so she can speak to them.   

‘I don’t think you realize where it is coming from so I need to speak with you,’ she says to a man who is completely confused by the extended encounter.

The woman continues:  ‘I don’t think you realize the distance that it comes from because then you would have never given what you gave. So I think you can come see me face to face.

The woman then claims that she drove 40 minutes, an ‘extremely far’ distance, to bring the customer their food. 

‘I got it to you early and so I don’t think you realize where you ordered from,’ the woman contends. 

At this point, the completely dumbfounded customer asks the woman to explain where she drove 40 minutes from.

She explains that the order was from a restaurant in Commack, causing the two to get into a brief spat over how far the drive actually was.

Google Maps indicate that Commack is roughly five to seven miles away from Smithtown, approximately a 10 to 15 minute drive. 

When the customer tells the woman that the drive is around 15 minutes, the driver asserts that that was not the case. 

'I feel that is still very far, so you need to adjust your tip to make it right,' she declares. 'You gave an 8$ tip'

‘I feel that is still very far, so you need to adjust your tip to make it right,’ she declares. ‘You gave an 8$ tip’

‘It’s not. You need to try to drive it,’ she says. ‘I just drove it and it is 40 minutes. It is 12 and a half miles’

The two continue going back and forth before the driver finally tells the customer her problem.  

‘I feel that is still very far, so you need to adjust your tip to make it right,’ she declares. ‘You gave an 8$ tip.’ 

The shocked customer quickly retorts: ‘What the hell are you looking for?!’

At this point, the driver determines she is not going to get a better tip. 

‘Well I’m going to bring the food back,’ she says, storming off with the bag of food in hand. 

In a statement to Dailymail.com, DoorDash shared that they could not confirm whether the driver worked with the company or if the man had ordered through them.

‘We take the safety of our community extremely seriously, and such inappropriate behavior is never tolerated on the DoorDash platform,’ they said in the statement. ‘Any behavior that violates this zero tolerance policy is grounds for deactivation.’
