A Domino’s Pizza delivery driver from Detroit had a pleasant surprise when he received a tip from a happy customer.

Pizza delivery man Robert Witherhome delivered an order worth $24 dollars to a hungry customer staying at the Hyatt Place Hotel in Utica. The unnamed customer gave the driver a tip of $10 dollars the first time around.

However it seemed the customer, who is believed to be staying in the area to receive medical treatment, had a change of heart and decided the Domino’s driver deserved a more substantial tip.

Virender Singh, who runs the franchise in Detroit, said the customer called back to ask if the delivery driver could pay him another visit. This time around the customer presented the hard working delivery driver with a tip for a whopping $1,000.

Mr Singh said of the generous gesture, “we were all amazed.” Before adding that he’s been trying to promote his driver into a managerial position for some time, but he has refused as he prefers life as a driver as he gets more of a chance to chat and interact with the customers.

As yet, Robert the driver has not decided what he’ll spend his $1,000 tip on.
