I personally hate this form of social media justice when it isn't clear what the whole story is. Perhaps it was just a couple late night employees like another member mentioned, perhaps the owner isn't even aware yet..maybe the owner has a family to feed and people are destroying his only source of income, or perhaps the story is true and the owner is a scammer..who knows. Either way, I don't get why people find it funny to leave hateful msgs on their fb and are so eager to destroy a business.

The owners should send in the mystery diners to investigate the situation.

The owner is responsible for managing his business. When the employees, especially management, provide a bad service, it's partly the owner's fault for hiring douche bags. If he wasn't aware of this, then he probably isn't the best owner either. While I agree that the guy should have probably contacted the owner before destroying his business, I can't completely blame him. I would be outraged after such an experience, and would probably not even bother talking with the owner.

I'll be more worried about the CRA with the extra tax they charge...
tax fraud is not a light thing, with 6% tax you cant use the HST reversal as an excuse.

Seems to me the owners weren't honest either

People love a witch hunt and when now you can't rate someone's shit down and feel good that you "hurt a bad guy" EVERYONE loves to dogpile on.

Yeah that's the only thing that bothers me. We didn't hear both sides of the story. However, regardless of what the story is, the business should ALWAYS return the customer's change.

But we didn't hear the other side of the story as stated, you we've concluded that the appropriate change was NOT returned.

Take it for what it's worth but the guy is a friend of mine and is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet; And no, he doesn't, or has never have worked there.

To the OP, this showed up on my FB newsfeed as well but didn't think about posting it here

Kinda surprised he didn't take more pictures to support his story.
I.E// the Cops attending nor the 2 goofballs that ripped him off.

& I agree, he should have taken this to the Manager first...let him fire the employees and make it up. Social justice gets out of hands these days. A recent example can be that false identified Boston Bomber during Reddit. That kid off'ed himself, not a result but it helped.

I don't even think he's looking for that much. I just read his story on my newsfeed and I don't think the guy is looking for his money back, nor to get those employees fired.

However, it was legitimate sales experience and I think he just wanted to share it; and if you can avoid the same douchebaggery, he'd consider that enough.

If anyone is wondering about the relationship, I went to school with this guy and hung out with him a time or two. We're not close but he truly is one of the nicest people I know and respect a lot. Again, this is just FWIW since I don't have the best reputation around here for it to carry any weight to some.




edit:

Knowing this guy personally, I can 100% vouch that this guy is not angry because he lost $30, but moreso about being stolen from.

lol it's funny how no one was there to witness the events, and all just jump on the side of the customer in this "he said she said" situation. I wasn't there and there probably is no way to ever find out the actual facts of the incident, but it's funny how everyone just jumped on the side of the "victim". However, it is interesting how the owner or rep of the FB page has yet to come out with a response.

Also, 10pm on a Friday night... was the customer intoxicated or under the influence or something?

I would contact the owner and explain the situation.. if he still refuses to listen... just call back later with a fake number/payphone and order a bunch of takeout pizza to an emtpy warehouse...

Doesn't matter.


With the internet, one person can snowball something into a business-destroying campaign pretty easily.


The internet is full of losers.

One of the biggest things about restaurants and small businesses that handle lots of cash is that employees tend to steal. If the owner knew what he was doing and implemented controls (Cash register, float, security camera) it'll be easy to identify who is right and fire the employee if true to fix his reputation.

But as the owner charges an extra 1% "tax" I don't think he/she cares too much..

social media has made it so much easier for people to be vicious. I dont feel like we've heard the entire story. funny how people on their keyboards can destroy a real, physical establishment from the safety of their homes.

The internet has taught me that the world is jam-packed with fucking losers who exist to troll and destroy



Spend a few days reading Reddit comments and you will agree!

The RCMP just called me and told me that the restaurant has contacted them and that people are harassing them and want the posts removed, I told them there is nothing I can do about the posts.

But what I want to do is ask everyone to please stop threatening these people and to not harass them. That is not the avenue I wanted to take in the first place nor is it the one I wanted to end with.
Those who said this is being taken way out of hand has hit the nail on the head. Without hearing both side of the story, people are being rash and things are starting to get out of hand.

However, instead of contacting the "victim" in question over FB, all that the Pizza place has done so far is delete comments off their FB page (negative comments coming in faster than they can delete, and can't delete reviews). Either way if the story is truly what the victim claims to be or not, they have no idea how to handle the situation and their reputation continues to slip into the drain.

This business got destroyed over a few bucks, ouch. Some old school business owners have no clue how powerful social media has become. It can either make you or break you.
