A doorbell camera captured the moment a frustrated Pizza Hut delivery person was offered a slice of pizza instead of a tip.

In a viral video shared by the @ringdoorbell.compilation TIkTok account, a man is seen walking to the doorstep of a house with a box of pizza.

That’s when he sees the sign on the front door: “No money for tips, please have a slice of pizza.”

The masked delivery man is captured by the Ring camera placing the single box of pizza on the curb and then stepping forward to ring the bell.

As he leans forward, he sees a sign on the front door in front of him, stating that the customer would not tip, but would offer the driver a slice of pizza from the box.

In the US, it is customary to tip delivery drivers. While 16% to 20% is typical for waiters and bartenders, there is some debate about the appropriate amount to tip a delivery person, with suggestions ranging from a few bucks all the way up to 20%.

Most Americans factor the cost into the price of the order, although this one clearly didn’t.

While he’s clearly unhappy with his lack of monetary tip, he doesn’t refuse the free piece and leans over to get one for himself.

He even takes off his mask to take a bite before walking away.

The video has been viewed more than 855,000 times on TikTok, and many commentators have been quick to criticize the stingy customer.

“Can’t tip and then don’t have it delivered,” wrote one, with many agreeing to similar posts.

“If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to order anything,” wrote another. “If you’re that bad, PB&J, ramen, Spaghetti O’s, grilled cheese, mac and cheese.”

Some commentators have argued that tipping is not required, but others have said that in America, if one doesn't have enough to tip, they shouldn't order delivery.

‘Tips are needed, delivery drivers are paid very little. He probably counted on it,’ said another.

Some commentators also pointed out that someone who works at a pizzeria probably gets enough free pizza already.

While several naysayers responded that tipping isn’t necessary — and they refuse to tip themselves either — others accused these people of being “cheap” and “embarrassing.”

Others still complained that the expectation of tips should be dispelled by employers who pay their employees a living wage.
