Florida Man Gets Himself Banned From Ordering Pizza Delivery

And that's why you shouldn't harass your local restaurants

Lest we forget, pizza delivery is a privilege — not a god-given right. A man in Florida has been harshly reminded of this fact after being banned from ordering pizza delivery, according to Treasure Coast News.

Sebastian resident Randy Riddle has apparently been unleashing a reign of terror upon several local pizzerias in recent weeks; between the end of May and mid-June police say he "made orders and refused to pay for them, directed delivery people to fake or vacant addresses, and made calls to the businesses just to tell them their pizza was gross."

Riddle reportedly used five different phone numbers (and sometimes, a fake name) to enact his strange scams. The businesses say they lost a total of $667 due to Riddle's antics; the 49-year-old man has been "charged with four counts of harassing phone calls, two counts of first-degree petty theft and one count of second-degree petty theft."

Worst of all, the judge has banned him from calling any pizzerias. He didn't say anything about ordering pizza via emoji or Twitter DM, however.
