Video of a food delivery driver stealing a little snack from his customer's package is going viral on social media platforms. The clip shows a deliveryman in Australia with an Uber Eats bag standing outside the door of a house. He rings the doorbell, knocks and waits with the package in his bag. He then peeps inside the delivery bag and takes out what looks like some French fries and eats it.
According to a Daily Mail report, the video was captured by a friend of radio show host Eddie McGuire. On Monday's program, McGuire said, "This has been a bit of a common occurrence at my place where sometimes the Uber [Eats] comes in and you go 'it's a bit light. Anyway, so a good friend of mine had the home security system going and he said 'you need to come and have a look at this one, old pal'." ‘Can't Refund Because Hair in Food Is A Matter of Personal Taste’ Food Delivery Company Tells Man Who Found Hair In His Burger.
However, the man went unnoticed as the customer came out of the door moments later and picked up the door. As the video went viral on social media, various reactions poured in. Some said that the man deserved the chips as neither Uber Eats employees paid them enough nor they were tipped by customers.
Here is the video:
Daily Mail Australia quoted an Uber Eats spokesperson as saying, "We know how important food safety is, and we ask delivery partners to take great care during the delivery process to ensure the quality of meals they deliver for restaurants reflect the restaurant's standards."
The statement added saying, "Delivery partners using Uber Eats are expected to comply with the Uber Eats community guidelines which explain they can lose access to the app for tampering with orders. We encourage users of the app to contact us with any concerns or issues they may be having and we will work to resolve these with them."
