The diner chef’s brilliant invitation to a man who sent a slice of pizza with a measuring tape

A couple have poked fun at themselves for pulling out a tape measure to prove their £13 Margherita pizza was just 13 inches long – a full two inches short of what was advertised

The couple were disappointed with their order, which they said was “way too small”.

A couple were mocked after pulling out a tape measure to prove their 13-pound Margherita pizza was two inches short of the advertised 15 inches, with some branding them “takeaway police”.

Coral and Luke Heath claim to have been furious when they discovered their takeout pizza was “way too small” and even took a photo with a tape measure as proof.

After calling the pizzeria to complain, things soon got heated when Luke claimed an employee repeatedly branded him a liar and refused to get him either a refund or fresh pizza.

The couple have since shared their ordeal – and the tape measure picture – online, and while they shared some sympathy, many have wondered why “they don’t have anything better to do.”

Luke raged, “Terrible pizza place. Really rude staff. We bought the 15 inch pizza and it was way too small so I called them right outside the delivery app to get them sorted.

“The person kept calling me a liar outright and was very argumentative. He even refused to send a new pizza or refund as it wasn’t what we paid for.

“He kept saying they take pictures of their pizza and I’m wrong. Well, we measured this pizza after that and this pizza was too damn small. She was burned, just horribly everywhere. Really, don’t order from these people, they don’t care about you.”

Coral expressed similar outrage, adding: “I honestly don’t care what the packaging says. I ordered a 15 so I expect 15.”

The couple had bought their pizza from Westgate Pizza in Canterbury, Kent, where staff see the situation differently.

A six-year employee, Mujeeb Hootek, has since hit back at the couple, arguing that the restaurant doesn’t even have a 13-inch pan.

Mujeeb said: “We offered a refund which they accepted and we apologized. We also offered them to come in and see our pans and how we work.”

A number of people were stunned by the couple’s extensive efforts to prove their order was wrong.

Local Liam Sheen wrote: “They actually measured a pizza… and I thought I had no life. Calm down the food police.”

Another commenter, Caweey Georgini, joked, “Did you call the police or should I?”

Others, however, were able to understand her reasoning, noting that the two-inch difference would actually make up a whole seven-inch pizza, and thus a fairly large portion of their meal.

A third person named Joe Levi said: “They all may say they have nothing better to do.

“But if everyone let things like that go by all the time, where would we stop people selling things that don’t fit the description?”
