A Domino’s Pizza delivery driver said customers “joked” about pointing a gun at him during one of his recent deliveries. He didn’t think it was funny.
The driver (@dominos_boy) posted a TikTok video retelling the conversation with the customers. He says the delivery began like any other Domino’s delivery — when he knocked on the customer’s door.
After knocking, he heard a man and woman inside, the TikToker says. The woman inside alerted the man that she heard a noise outside, and the man inside allegedly told her to “get the gun.” The TikToker says the man then warned him and said “Keep walking buddy,” presumably through the door.
The driver says he was “stunned” and barely blurted out that he was delivering pizza. As the man and woman slowly open their garage door, the driver says he held up one hand while holding the pizza with the other.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I only deliver pizza, did you order pizza,” says the driver, recounting what he said to the customers.

The man and woman then laughed in his face and said, “Gotcha,” says the driver.
“There couldn’t be a less funny joke,” he says, shaking his head in the video. “That’s the least funny joke ever told. Don’t do that, don’t do that.”
To emphasize the driver’s endpoint, the video’s caption reads in capital letters, “DON’T DO THIS! I CANNOT stress that enough.”
Several viewers commented under the video how they would have reacted in the situation.
“Bro you’re better than me or I would have thrown the damn pizza at them and got caught,” commented one viewer.
“I would have just told them, ‘You’re not threatening Domino’s,’ and I would have taken the pizza and walked away. It takes a heartless manager to fire this,” commented a second viewer.
A third wrote: “As a former pizza restaurant manager I would have banned them from ordering. That’s no joke. Your safety is no joke.”
Others expressed concern at the couple’s “joke” and deplored the dangers of being food delivery drivers.
“Pizza drivers can’t get enough. They all make 100,000 a year,” said one user.
“Delivery is one of the most dangerous jobs in America,” said another user.
Another wrote: “Stuff like this isn’t funny and actually mean. I hate jokes like that.”
One user asked if the creator received at least a reasonable tip, to which he replied, “$6”.
