Another argument about tips is upon us and this time a DoorDash driver was left outraged after being given a $5 tip for a $20 order of pizza.

TikToker Lacey Purciful (@ladybug3660) caught a heated exchange between herself and her DoorDasher on her home security camera after he finished delivering her pizza.

In the viral footage, the driver - who has only been identified as Corey - can be seen through the doorbell camera approaching her house and the conversation seemed to be going well at first.

He handed the 38-year-old her pizza delivery and then looked at her property before snarkily saying: "I just want to say it’s a nice house for a 5-dollar tip."

Watch the TikTok below:

The woman was clearly shocked by the remark as she sarcastically replied, "You're welcome!", but the delivery driver didn't take it well as he fired back, "F**k you," while walking away.

Writing over the video - which has amassed almost 300,000 views - the Texas homeowner penned: "So how much should I be tipping for a $20 pie??"

While the rules around tipping delivery drivers have been well-established in US culture for a long time, it continues to be an ongoing discourse. According to Daily Dot, three to five dollars is considered a good tip since delivery drivers aren't expected to perform the same level of service as a waiter. So, in this case, Lacey tipped the DoorDasher 25% - which is quite generous.

However, some people flooded the comment sections with their thoughts on the matter, stating that the driver had the right to be furious about the $5 tip.

One person wrote: "The f you was much. But he was right," and another user said: "It's true tho wtf is $5 I'll just take the food back."

Meanwhile, others were in complete disbelief that the DoorDash driver was so crude during the encounter. A user stated: "I’d be enrageddddd, people these days think that everyone has money to tip, like babe I also don’t get [paid] millions ughhh."

A second added: "And he still cussed at you after tipping him!? Wow."

In a follow-up video with 1.7 million views, Lacey shared a clip and receipt from a delivery made the same day in which she tipped a more pleasant driver nearly 60 percent on a $17 bill.

"Just to clear the air... I do tip well!! After my interactions with dashers," she wrote in the overlay. She also added in the caption: "This was the same day as the pizza incident. I have worked in the Service Industry for over 10 years!! I do Tip very well. But I also tip on my interaction with the Dasher. This kind man was so sweet & friendly!! Thanks for being kind!!"

After the video went viral on social media, DoorDash issued a statement revealing that Corey has been fired from the delivery company, as reported by Daily Dot.

"Respectfully asking for a tip is acceptable but abusing or harassing someone is never acceptable. We’ve removed this Dasher from our platform and reached out to the customer," they said. "Our rules exist to help ensure everyone who uses our platform - Dashers, customers, merchants - have a safe and enjoyable experience."

"We expect everyone to treat others with respect and we will enforce our rules fairly and consistently," they added.
