From unveiling a new recipe to promising more honest ads, Domino’s has done a great deal to restructure its image in recent months. And then some jackass delivery guy in North Carolina has to go and ruin the fun for everyone by dropping the “N word” on a customer’s receipt.
A woman in Apex, NC, had just taken delivery of two Domino’s pizzas when her 10-year-old niece pointed out the words “N**GER” and “DON’T TIP” at the bottom of the receipt.
Not exactly thrilled with this level of customer disservice, she complained to the Domino’s and the driver was subsequently given the boot. Which might explain why she’s now received over a dozen threatening phone calls.
Says the customer:
They were saying basically the same stuff that was on the receipt. They were saying N-this, you got me fired, you did this, you did that, just being real ugly to me, just being real mean… I’m thinking it is 2010, it’s never good to do that. You can’t do stuff like that anymore.
While the local authorities are investigating the phone calls, the owner of the Domino’s in question is taking things seriously:
I’m horrified this occurred. This was the action of a lone individual and it does not reflect my views. Upon learning of the incident, the General Manager of the store fired the responsible person immediately. I have reached out to the customer and offered my sincere apology.
