When delivering pizza, one of the most important things they tell you is to make sure you have everything you need before you sit your butt in the car. That being said, is it really worth punching a guy in the face for forgetting to bring you garlic knots? Apparently: Yes.
Robert Wheeler, 48, allegedly punched his Vero Beach, Fla. pizza deliveryman in the face for not showing up with his complete order. What did he forget? Garlic Knots. The 348-pound tank of a man told the deliveryman “give that to the person working on the phone back at the restaurant” according to TCPalm.
While Wheeler admits to striking the deliveryman, he claims it was due to the restaurant owing him money, not because of the garlic knots. Either way, both reasons probably won’t look too great in front of a judge. Wheeler was arrested with a misdemeanor battery charge and is currently out on $500 bail. He will appear in court on Sept. 18.
Now, I’ve forgotten my fair share of food back in my delivery days…thankfully I’ve never gotten more than an stern talking to.
