Dominos driver calls transgender woman sir

← Homepage

A TRANSGENDER woman has slammed Domino’s on social media after a delivery driver for the pizza chain allegedly called her “sir”.

Dominos delivery guy deliberately misgendered me as a transgender woman. Dominos wont respond, Tina Healy tweeted on Monday, adding the hashtag #boycottdominos.

In a linked Facebook post, which has since been deleted, the Gender Diversity Australia co-ordinator wrote: Im standing outside my door, and theres a light on. My name Tina is on the docket.

The guy stops. Looks me up and down a couple of times. Stares for a moment. And then makes a decision to cal [sic] me sir a couple if times, even after I clarified my name was Tina.

According to Yahoo7, the post went on to say that while she normally shrugs off such incidents, the encounter hurt and made me feel ugly.

She said an email to Dominos went unanswered and a post to the company's Facebook page was wiped, prompting her to take to Twitter and Facebook.

She later tweeted that the Dominos store had rung to apologise and said they would train their drivers, before adding that she had been contacted by head office.

Dominos management rang, she wrote on Tuesday. Very impressed with the reply. Full apology and showed understanding of the issues for our community.

They will address the issue [with their] training team. Are open to the possibility of Genda contributing to that training process.

In a statement, a Dominos spokeswoman said: After being advised of this incident, we spoke to this customer to sincerely apologise. Dominos is a company that values diversity and acceptance among our team members and customers, and we have addressed this incident on a local level.

We continually work to deliver customer service of the highest standards, and deliver ongoing training to all employees. We have advised our customer we would welcome her input and insight into future training programs, and look forward to continuing this discussion.
