Disgruntled Domino's customer pays for £25 pizza in 2P COINS after firm 'made him feel like a criminal'

Bizarre footage has captured a disgruntled Domino's Pizza customer paying for a £25 meal using just 2p coins.
Billy Martin, 23, dumped 1,287 coppers - totalling £25.74 - on the counter of his local takeaway branch because of an argument over an outstanding payment.
Billy said he decided to pay in coppers because the firm made him "feel like a criminal" when they chased him over an order.
The dad-of-one, from Tamworth, ordered a medium cheese and tomato pizza, mighty meat stuffed crust, potato wedges and a Fanta last Thursday but did not make a payment when it was delivered.
Billy says a Domino's driver dropped the meal off but left before he had a chance to give him the money, so he assumed the online order had automatically taken payment from his bank card.
The company admitted the employee made a mistake by not taking payment at the door.
The next day, grounds worker Billy claims he received a string of text messages and phone calls from Domino's telling him he owed money for the meal, the Birmingham Mail reported.
The 23-year-old said he explained to the driver he was unable to pay immediately because he was attending his girlfriend's grandmother's funeral. He said he would pay the money back on Sunday.
He said he was left angered by six phone calls about the payment made over three days.
So, he said he decided to get his own back and changed the money into 2ps at a nearby bowling alley before taking them to the Domino’s branch in Tamworth.
Billy, 23, said: "They ruined my weekend so I decided to get my own back and pay the money I owed in 2ps.
"I ordered two pizzas, two sides and a drink and it came to £25.74 around 8pm last Thursday.
"The delivery guy just handed the pizzas over and didn't say anything except 'see you', I just assumed I'd paid by card online and didn't think much of it.
"The Dominos delivery driver first rang to ask for the money two hours later.
"He said 'You've not paid so we can come out to you to collect the money or you can come into the store to pay.'

Billy continued: "It was late and I was about to go to sleep so I explained my situation that I was leaving first thing to go to a funeral and I would be back on Sunday evening so could come in then and pay for the pizza.
"I even said I'd pay over the phone straight away but they told me that I couldn't do that.
"The driver said ok and I thought no more about it but the next day he kept calling.
"I'd already explained that I was at a funeral but they still persisted to call me, I think they thought that I was lying about where I was.
"The whole thing was a nightmare and my girlfriend wasn't happy that I was spending the day on my phone trying to deal with the situation.
"Every other hour I was on the phone trying to deal with it."
Billy claims that Domino's even called the police who called him chasing the payment.
He said: "When the police called I spoke to them and they told me that if I didn't pay for the pizza by Sunday evening they would be taking it further.
"I took the money in on the Sunday evening like I said I would, but in two pence pieces, I got the money changed at a local bowling alley.
"I asked for a receipt to prove I'd paid it but they told me I could have a receipt when I paid with proper money. They accepted the payment and I've heard no more about it.
"I'll never have a Domino's again, they made me feel like a criminal, and it was their fault."
Joshua Speers, a spokesperson for Domino’s claimed that Mr Martin was "abusive" and "aggressive".
He added: "The welfare and safety of our colleagues is paramount therefore we’ve taken the decision not to accept any future orders from Mr. Martin.”
A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: "We can confirm that we were called by a Domino's employee at 3.20pm on Saturday after a delivery driver forgot to ask for payment from a customer.
"The customer involved confirmed that they would visit the shop to pay his bill."
