The restaurant later posted the text conversation between them and the prankster...After the man was informed his food was on its way, he replied with a thumbs up.
However, after turning up at the wrong address again, it quickly became obvious that he was playing a game.The restaurant worker messaged the man, writing: "Address you provided is not correct."
This is where things get even more shocking...The man responded: "I know. F**k heads."
As if the whole thing filled him with satisfaction.The restaurant replied: "Thank you for letting a small local struggling business down by doing these kinds of inhuman jokes. Blessings."
Their calm and collected response seemed to irritate the man...Writing: "You stupid c***. No one wanna buy your s**t. I have a housewife so I don't need your f**king food," he texted back.
Understandably, after the post was uploaded to Reddit, people were furious with the unknown man..."Irked me that he didn't say he had a wife, but a housewife, like that's her whole identity. Feel sorry for her. She probably has to put up with this sort of stupid power game s**t too," one comment read.
"I don't think people quite understand what a prank is vs just being an a**hole," read another.
