Woman Says She Received Vulgar Receipt From NJ Pizza Shop

A local woman is outraged after she says she received a vulgar receipt when she ordered from a South Jersey pizza shop.

“I just had to shake my head because I couldn’t believe it,” said Loretta Smith Layne of Bridgeton, New Jersey. 

Layne told NBC10 she placed an order for wings back on July 25 at Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz on Burlington Road in Bridgeton.

“I ordered wings fried hard,” she said.

Layne says she was shocked when she saw the receipt attached to the delivery bag. Underneath the “special instructions” on the receipt were the words, “Fried hard like a black d***” and “d***.”

“I was very offended and upset and disrespected to get those words on a receipt,” she said. 

NBC10 spoke to a manager at Danny’s Pizza who Layne claimed took her order. The manager denied the receipt came from Danny’s Pizza and then directed us to his father, Danny Sommeling, the owner of the shop. Sommeling told NBC10 he was unsure where the vulgar receipt came from. 

However, Layne later showed NBC10 text messages she claims came from Sommeling, in which he apologized to her for his son’s choice of words, saying he made a bad decision that was “definitely not professional.”

“He needs to realize what he’s done,” Layne said. “It’s not acceptable. Not to me. And I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I went through.”
