A doctor identified as Jay Bee intentionally pretended that the delivery of his order was late so he can pay less than the original price of his order. He even bragged about this ill doing on Facebook.
According to Jay Bee’s post, the fast food chain he ordered from guaranteed 20 minutes delivery but it arrived a minute late. He only paid Php66 for burger, fries, spaghetti, and chocolate sundae and saved Php200.
But in the comment section, he revealed that the delivery man was not actually late. He just did not answer the call from the receptionist on purpose. He answered it a minute later so the delivery would turn out to be late.
PERK UP! The Philippine Business and News Forum noticed this post and reported it on their page and encouraged the netizens to share it and teach the man some lessons.
The page and netizens were angered by the doctor’s behavior.
“Nakakakahiya, Doctor ka pa at Atenista pa. Nasa ang ‘Man for Others’ mo?” said the admin of the page. (What a shame, especially that you’re a doctor and an Atenista.)
They also took pity on the delivery man. Even Jay Bee’s friend was concerned that the delivery man would have to shoulder for the fee and his salary might even be deducted.
“Nakakahiya kung sino pa ang may pinag-aralan siya pa ang di tapat. Pagnanakaw yang kinain mo,” commented Pablo Maliwat. (It’s a shame how the one educated would turn out to be dishonest. You stole that food.)
“Nakakalungkot. Kasi kami nga nagpadeliver din kami ng pizza ng ate ko (ibang resto naman) Pero late talaga si kuyang nagdeliver, pero kahit late binayaran namin. Kasi naisip namin baka nahirapan sya hanapin lugar namin. Nakakalungkot lang na may gantong tao pala talaga,” said another netizen Ariane Junica Endriga. (It’s sad. My sister and I ordered pizza from a different restaurant and the delivery guy was late. But even if he was late, we paid him anyway because we thought he had a hard time finding our place. It’s sad that there are people like him [Jay Bee].)
