When Saginaw, Michigan, resident Eric Promenchenkel ordered a Pizza from the State Street branch of Domino’s he never expected to end up on the local news.
But that is what happened when his pizza arrived and instead of ‘white’ sauce he got light sauce.
He called to complain, speaking to the manager Chris Bernier, who then hung up on him – not once, but twice.
So Eric’s girlfriend’s mom went to the store to complain in person and what happened next was caught on camera.
Bernier, obviously having a bad day, unleashed a profanity-laced tirade at the unhappy customer.
The recording of the exchange went viral job and Bernier ended up losing his job on Monday after the local media picked up on it.
A shame, considering he had recently been featured on local news for boosting business with his innovative and amusing shop signs.
Just goes to show you can’t have an off day when someone’s wielding a mobile phone.
2roo: I don’t know about pummeled, but when that 2nd employee ran up and bearhugged the first, I almost died
antelthrope: is this why my delivery took so long?
shalkore: Just let him have the money. It’s not worth risking your life. It’s not your money. AND Dominos will probably fire them for breaking corporate policy of not resisting during robberies.
deebodeezo: I think it was more about self preservation than protecting Dominos from being robbed. That guy could easily have gunned them down on the way out, for no reason. Plenty of employees get killed for nothing. Personally I would have taken the moron down as soon as he turned his back, especially considering he had a long gun. Fuck if I care about being fired from a fast food joint.
justwantmyrugback: Pummel… or massive hugfest?
luckyjinxer: I work at dominos. There is never enough cash in the store, outside of a time locked safe (15 minutes, which should outlast any police response time) to make these heroics worth-while. Let the thug have the till cash, it’s probably less than a hundred dollars.
Victorbanner: This is my dominos. I was there 20 min before this happened. Weird feeling
kittenbananaphone: Its always easier to take control of a long gun as opposed to a handgun in this situation. Much much easier. Just keep the barrel away from you with the huge amount of adrenaline that was just delivered to your brain. Not ideal, but still way better than trying to gain control of a tiny and mobile handgun
ShagMeNasty: I counted 4 punches to the dome by the 3rd employee that ran up. I bet that felt so fucking good. Atta boy
Cactus_Killer: Granted I’m a bit larger then everyone in this video, it looks like it would have been fun. I love hugs.
ev6464: Ah yes, the old Human Centipede gambit.
i always think of the cookies first
pipon245: Holy shit this was so satisfying
SSolitary: He deserved it…
I mean who the hell robs a dominoes, have some standards rob a decent pizza place
barronflux: that was so intense. they beat the crap out of dude at the end. way too risky a move though…
[deleted]: Pummeled? Really, op? What a doofus you are.
