In an article in The Mirror, one man shares what happened when he accidentally tipped the pizza delivery man by 140%.
The man shared his story on social media.
He explained that he had ordered the pizza when he had a little too much to drink and had already paid for it online. However, when the delivery man delivered the pizza, the man had forgotten that he had already paid for it so he paid for it a second time along with a 20% tip.
He did not realize his mistake at that exact moment although he wondered why the delivery man said "Thank you" so enthusiastically.
Just a few seconds later, he realized he had made a big mistake and was about to ask the delivery man for the money back.
It was then that he saw the driver's "secret" reaction to the hefty tip.
The man explains,
"He had a smile from ear to ear like he found the cure for Covid or struck gold or something,"
"He even did this little mini jump before he hopped into his car.
After he witnessed his reaction, he did not have the heart to ask for his money back even though he was well within his rights.
Instead, the man was glad that he messed up the payment to help someone who he thought needed the money more than he did.
Commenters on social media agreed with the man's decision not to get his money back.
One person said,
"Stuff like that can really make your week, even month in a job where you seldom get much thanks."
