    Kinda fucked up imo.

    I've been a pizza delivery driver for several years, and today is the first day I legitimately feel ashamed of doing what I do. This story may not seem to be a huge deal to some people, since it's probably more of me being socially inept when it comes to a big audience and being recorded and not being comfortable with my singing voice. So I may be overreacting, but I can't shake this feeling of humiliation.

    Since I was a kid, i've always been pretty shy. Even amongst close friends i'm somewhat quiet. And I am absolutely terrible speaking in front of large crowds. I remember in highschool having nightmares for weeks about having to do an upcoming presentation, and I would be dreading doing it every day until the day of. Not only that, but i'm a terrible singer, and I know it. I don't even feel comfortable singing in front of friends and family.

    Which brings me to the actual story. I had a delivery today with a note written in the 'special instructions' section that said "Sing a christmas carol for a tip". I didn't really take it all that seriously, and figured they were just joking. And if they weren't, I thought of a corny line to say while driving there to hopefully satisfy them if they were serious.

    So I show up and it's some kind of small party going on. There's probably roughly 10-15 teenagers gathered around in the living room and the mom comes to the door and takes the pizza as I give her the receipt to sign.

    She then looks at me with a smile and goes "So did they tell you?!?

    Me: "Haha, oh the note? Yeah I saw that, but trust me, you don't want to hear me sing."

    Her: "Oh come on, you have to!" She then ushers me inside and closes the door behind me. All of the people there are watching me and already have their phones out recording me. I instantly get uncomfortable and want to leave as quickly as possible. An audience is one thing, but being recorded my multiple people will instantly make me feel anxious.

    Her: "Well go on, sing!"

    Me: "No really, i'm a terrible singer, i'm sure I will ruin your christmas!" (christmas is still several weeks away, I have no idea why they wanted a christmas carol so bad)

    Her: "OH COME ON. I'll make it worth your while" She said as she waved a 20 and a 5 in front of me.

    I continued to insist on being a terrible singer and not being comfortable with it, but she kept pushing. Eventually I decided to try my corny line and hoped it would satisy them.

    So I just said "Okay, how about, rub-a-dub-dub I brought you some grub!" Which was corny as fuck and holy hell so cringey to say and made me feel infinitely more uncomfortable.

    Obviously no one laughed, and she went "No, it has to be a christmas carol!"

    I insisted more about not wanting to sing and was starting to get seriously pissed off and uncomfortable that she wasn't taking no for an answer, and she kept waving the money in front of my face to 'encourage' me, so finally I just said "Look, i'm sorry but i'm not going to sing for money."

    She looked at me incredulously for a second and went "Woooooooooowwwww It was only for fun you know. Well, you're definitely not getting this then," She said as she pulled the 20 away and only gave me the 5 and the receipt she had signed.

    I said thank you and quickly left, while I heard several comments behind me from everyone else like:

    "Wow, is he serious? What a dick" "Ugh, gross" (wtf this even means I have no idea. disgusted she didn't hear a christmas carol i guess) "Wow did he really have to make us feel so bad?"

    So yeah. It's just being pressured to sing which I guess should just be fun, but I've never felt so used and humiliated while working here. I legitimately feel ashamed to be working a minimum wage job now, and truly feel like i'm on the lowest rung of the ladder in society. I was just a tool for their entertainment that they thought would jump at the chance to make a fool of myself for an extra 20 bucks. I'm a pizza delivery driver, not a fucking performer.

    edit: first time getting gold on reddit and it's on a throwaway, haha. Thanks though!

    I really really appreciate all the kind words everyone. It's awesome going from feeling humiliated last night to feeling proud of myself today. Thank you all so much!

    Unless you are new to this country everyone should feel ashamed of working a minimum wage job. I would have told her I jerk off on her pizza

    If it happens again, just say "NO!!!" and leave with power.

    Even the $25 ain't worth that.

    It was a BS power-play on their part, so flip the script and own your power.

    (It's REALLY fun to not give power away to others, once you get the hang of it!!!)

    Next time belt out a few lines from the old Johnny Rebel favorite " The house next door has just been sold to ni88ers ".
    See how that goes.

    This this this.

    You are paid to deliver them food they are too lazy to make for themselves, and nothing else.
    You are not their entertainment.


    ...should have told a horrible story about how your family was murdered on Christmas and therefore you cannot and will not sing carols.....killed the room vibe dead. Merry Christmas kiddos :D

    Who the hell does she think she is anyway?

    You did the right thing by sticking to your guns.

    How dare she put you, or anyone, in that position.

    Sorry but I have to say it, FUCK HER!!!

    I delivered pizzas in college and definitely would have told them to go fuck themselves. A lot of people are like that. Users.

    I once delivered 20 pizzas to a volunteer fire department -- it took up half my afternoon, so I missed out on other deliveries -- and those white trash fucks didn't tip me. Now I don't send a donation when they send such letters. Wannabe heroes.

    Should've whipped his dick out and started stroking. Then sued his employer for putting him in that situation in the first place. Management should have shut the customer down immediately.
