These Tweets Will Make You Feel Bad For The Delivery Men. You Will Regret Your Behaviour With Them

We all have criticised food delivery boys and online food services for delivering late. Getting late food is one of the biggest frustrations in life and thatswhy we never think twice before calling out the people standing on our doorsteps with our favourite food. Sometimes we even show our anger on restaurant owners over phone calls and app chats.

However, a Twitter user from Bangalore has shared an incident on the microblogging site which will melt your heart and you will think several times before getting angry over delivery boys again.

A user with username @aakashvinay17 wrote multiple tweets and shared an incident about his recent food order experience which will make you feel bad about the delivery boys.

People in Bengaluru, hear me out. A few days ago I ordered in and it took a while for the delivery person to make it. And no, this isn’t a complaint that I want addressed by @swiggy_in or @ZomatoIN or any of the good people there. This is an incident I want to share.

After almost an hour of waiting, he finally arrived, and when I opened the door, I felt bad that I had even considered giving him an earful for the delay. He stood there at my doorstep, shivering and barely able to hand me the package. He struggled to pull out his wallet.

You could see it that abuse for delays came his way very often, and his sheepish smile said it all. It was his hands though that said the biggest tale. Company issue jackets sold by the lowest priced retailers didn’t help him. He shivered the whole time, but he smiled throughout.

It’s one of the coldest winters Bengaluru has seen in over a decade and there are people whose livelihoods depend on being out on the streets. Food delivery partners, Cab Drivers, Dunzo Runners, and several more. Be kind to them.

If you have a shawl or a jacket that you can give away, do that. It’ll mean the world to them. If you can part ways with the 20 bucks that he owes you as change, that serves as warmth too. If you’ve been able to put a smile on his face, trust me you’ve earned yourself one too.

Zomato gives you information about the delivery person; where he’s from, what he studied, family supports. And some of them aren’t too educated. Suggest that a few layers of newspaper on the inside of their jackets, over their chests, will go a long way in keeping them warm.

When the delivery person takes time to reach the restaurant, remember that part of the reason you didn’t step out to eat is the temperature. And that may be a part of the reason he chooses to ride slowly. Know that he gets absolutely NOTHING from delaying your order.

This isn’t a rant or a plea. This is just a reaction from seeing an old man shivering while handing me my dinner. God didn’t put you in the shoes you’re in because he likes you more than he likes anyone else. You got lucky. So the least we can do is be kind to those who aren’t.

And if it’s not asking too much, show some love to the animals too. Leave an old bedsheet or open a packet of biscuits on the pavement or just run your fingers down the throat of that dog that you’ve met but never made friends with. If a tail is wagged,you’re a winner. Thank you.

Well thats’ really a genuine message. What do you think?
