Corey began to walk back to his car, but then turned back and said, “I just want to say, it’s a nice house for a $5 tip.” You’re welcome!” responded Lacy. The driver became bitter, saying “fu** you” before walking out of the frame. Lacey captioned the video, “So how much should I be tipping for a $20 pie??” She said, implying that he had given him a 25 percent tip on a $20 order.

Social media users blasted Corey and his behaviour on Reddit, with one user writing, “Pisses me off that my $18 order gets an additional service fee and a delivery fee that is not a tip. So by the time all is said and done with taxes and fees, with my tip my $18 order is now $32-$35. Sucks for the workers but these fees are hurting everyone but the corporations”. Another user wrote, “I’ve worked for tips as a busser, and server. $5 on $20 is a great tip and how much money you make has no bearing. Fu** this guy. I would have called his manager.” “Nope. Dude needs a new profession if he’s expecting a tip that’s half the price of the meal. What a prick,” said one user. “Oh so the customer is supposed to tip you a high amount of money based on your perception of what a fancy house looks like?” said one user.
