Delivery driver's rude reaction to woman's order shocks her 😠

A woman's decision to order delivery from a nearby burger joint rather than picking up her food in person led to an unexpected confrontation with the delivery driver. Despite paying an additional fee and leaving a 20% tip, the driver berated the woman for not picking up her own food, and even threw snow at her and flipped her off. The woman was understandably frazzled and complained to the restaurant, which apologized and returned her tip. While the experience won't stop her from patronizing the burger joint, she's decided to forego delivery in the future.
