A pizza parlor posted a note on its door alleging shoddy service on lazy workers and incentive checks – prompting a backlash after the memo went viral on social media.
an angry customer Posted a print out excuse on redditadding that he would “wait 90 minutes for 1 medium pizza. Came into the store and found out why.”
According to the note taped on the front door of the shop, the reason for the slow service was “a severe shortage of staff”. The note cited “encouragement” and a “lack of work ethic.”
Reddit users were incredulous at the pizza slinger’s incentive theory — an often debated issue between Democrats and Republicans — with more than 41,000 users reacting to the flap.
“Incentives? Like the Rs 600 I got a few years back? Still sitting pretty with that free cash! My accommodation has only grown 25% since then,” according to a post.
Another wrote “Hey man $600 was a lot of money in 1922.”
“You mean $1200 dollars? You didn’t retire on that? You have to cut out the lattes.”
Others suggested that the owner may have received government loans from the PPP program and was hypocritical about the handouts.
“You should check if that business received PPP loan and how much. I would love for it to be written on the message as the owner is very concerned about the incentive payment.”
The pizza joint’s management – whose name and location were not identified – likewise “please be patient” with current employees who turned to work from customers.
“My team is working relentlessly to serve everyone,” the note said. “Let us all show some kindness and humanity towards them and say a positive word to encourage them.”
