Driver sacked for leaving foul voicemail as mum fell asleep after ordering pizza 'F*****'


Emily Ross said she intended to pay cash but fell asleep at the top of the trails before the pizza arrived and didn’t hear the delivery driver knocking.

The 24-year-old said she phoned Pasha Pizza the next morning.

She intended to offer to pay but instead was met by an irate voicemail.

Despite this Emily, who said she was “absolutely mortal” said she found the incident “funny” and decided to share the recording on social media, racking up 10,000 shares.

“When I posted the video on Facebook, I never expected it to go that far.

“Everyone finds it hilarious, some people said it’s cheeky and I should storm down and ask who they’re speaking to but I didn’t take it too seriously.

“Some people would be offended but luckily I wasn’t bothered by it.

“I’ve never ordered from there before and I’d been looking forward to it.

“I normally pay by bank card but I was going to pay in cash which is probably why he was raging. It must be awful when people order and don’t answer the phone.”

She said: “I ordered the takeaway when I was on my way home but I was absolutely mortal so I don’t even know how I got a sentence out then I fell asleep at the top of the stairs.

“I was passed out at the top of the stairs and I didn’t hear him knock or my phone ring.”

Pasha Pizza, in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear confirmed one of their drivers had been fired after leaving the angry voicemail.
The voicemail said: “This is Pasha Pizza. You’re not answering your f****** motherf******  phone.

“Do not call my shop any more b****** stupid motherf*****.”

Emily admitted she didn’t remember making the order but was “devasted” when she missed it.

She said: “When I got up and listened to the voicemail, I just thought ‘what on earth?’.

“I was laughing, luckily I found it funny and it didn’t bother me. I didn’t take it too seriously.

“It was so funny, I can’t believe the way he was going off. I’ve never heard anything like it before.

“I was going to ring up and pay because I would never normally do that, it must be awful when people don’t pay.

“If I ran a takeaway, I’d be frustrated if that happened because I bet they lose a lot of money.

“But I thought that surely I couldn’t then ring up and say I’ve called to pay but I’ve received that voicemail.”

A Pasha Pizza spokesperson said: “We are aware of the presence of the voicemail online, unfortunately, this was our driver and he has since been fired.

“This is not how we would operate no matter the circumstances.

“The lady in question called the shop at 00:31am on the 23rd of January 2022, 30 minutes after closing hours, and begged us to take her order.

“We kindly agreed and kept five of our staff members working after they were ready to go home, we switched the equipment back on and made her order.

“However, when our driver arrived at her home there were people inside the home and he could hear them clearly laughing, he kept knocking but no one answered the door.

“He then came back to the store and was instructed to call the customer again just in case they had given the wrong address, again there was no answer.

“This went on with the shop trying to contact her until 1:27am. The driver then lost his temper and unfortunately left an angry voicemail.”
