Pie price dispute ends in arrest for haggling customer.

Pie price dispute ends in arrest for haggling customer.


This here is a tale of a sweet tooth and a bad egg.

Okay, that's an oversimilification, but this is a pretty funny story of petty revenge. Never test small business owners.

Don't mess with the Pies


I owned a deli in an office building that had over 1400 people that worked there. I did quite well. One product I sold a ton of were Tastykake pies.

In fact I sold so many that my guy would move his close to expiring cakes from grocery stores and put them in my place.

Most of my customers were daily people who bought coffee, breakfast and lunch. But one of the tenants was To**** Motor Credit (redacted for safety). And their credit guys would call people who were behind on their car payments and tell them, 'Either come in today and make a payment or we will re-po your car'.

So I'd get these deadbeats coming in, parking in my designated spots and then checking out my store. Most were pretty slimy.

One day my Tastykake driver pulled a bunch of product from a grocery store that were on sale 2/.99 cents. He removed the stickers on most of them, but forgot a couple.

I charged $1.19/pie. Never put them on sale. One of these guys who was one step away from losing his car found one of the pies marked 2/.99 cents. I ring it up and say 'that'll be $1.19'.

He says 'Nope, 50 cents, it's marked'. I calmly say ' Not going to argue, it's $1.19'. He then goes ballistic saying 'By law you have to sell it to me for 50 cents,'. He then starts swearing at me.

I grab the phone and call the police. He says 'Good, call them, he'll make you sell the pie to me for 50 cents, I know the law'. Within 2 minutes the police show up.

Of course there is no law that a price sticker obligates the price charged. The cop was laughing at this doofus. The creep says something about the cop not knowing the law. The cop stopped laughing and asked to see this guy's ID.

He starts to stammer and starts to try to walk out...'not a big deal I have to go''. Finally the cop gets him to show his ID...he had multiple warrants (parole violations and some fraud) and was hauled away in handcuffs.

I waved to him as he sat in the back of the police cruiser.....and then had his car towed. My cousin owns a gas station that was 55 miles away.....he came and took the car.

I found out his name from the credit collections agent on the 3rd floor (daily customer) he was P*SSED......'why didn't you call me....I hate that guy, would have loved to see that''.

This story prompted some very funny, and sometimes punny, responses:


Perhaps it was a case of arrested development. 🤔


You have to wonder what's behind the thought process. I mean you must know you've got active warrants out there, and then you demand the police are called in? What did this fuckwit think was going to happen?

Ye gods, probably better he was arrested, anyone that stupid shouldn't be operating a motor vehicle.


You called the police about 69 cents?


Probably called the police about being harassed over 69 cents.


The title made my think this was going to be a kinky sexy post but it wasn’t, but it was cool anyway

Any small business owners have stories of dealing with difficult, petty customers? Any shoppers have a story of winning an arguement with a shop owner?
