This customer clearly has a lot of anxiety around food ordering, which can be completely understandable if said customer were to have strict dietary restrictions. Still, to have the audacity to walk into a pizza spot with a typed list of instructions that includes no cheese or tomatoes is something else entirely. Yes, you read that right.

I put some bacon in the oven for 14 minutes at 400 degrees, thanks to the fastest Google search results. I was also making some scrambled eggs and pancakes at the same time, and, because I live my life on hard mode apparently, frantically waving a blanket in front of the fire alarm every minute or two.

Now, there is also plenty of wrongdoing happening on the other side of things in this thread, which was posted to Reddit’s r/pettyrevenge subreddit. We…
