I know this isn’t a good place to say this but I’ll say it anyway: the GrabFood rider who lost his patient (and his job) at Playmade should learn a thing or two from this GrabFood rider, Mr Kuah.
This year’s Mother’s Day would be one that most would remember as the most unique one: no one can dine out and everyone’s celebrating at home.
And if you’ve tried to order anything through food delivery platform yesterday, you’d notice that you might not find a rider, or even if you do, it’d take slightly longer.
A Facebook user, Meizi Lim, experienced just that.
Instead of a usual 20-minute wait we usually experience when ordering food from food delivery platforms, it ballooned to more than 2 hours for her.
But it’s not the wait that made her post viral.
It’s how the rider responded.
GrabFood Rider Waited 2.5 Hours for Order During Mother’s Day But Still Stayed Bubbly
According to Ms Lim, she has made an $81.90 order from Hong Kong Street Cheng Ji at Bukit Batok St 33—a zichar stall.
What she didn’t realise is that there was a whopping 30 to 45 people waiting for their food at the zichar stall, too.
An online search didn’t reveal anything special about this zichar stall leh so it could just be one of the many stalls that is receiving higher than usual orders due to Mother’s Day.
Ms Lim had known about the waiting time because one of her friends had also ordered from the same stall and knew about the situation.
Seeing that, she went on to message the rider to apologise, and suddenly, she made a new friend.
Here’s the conversation that’ll warm your heart (the ones in white bubble is the GrabFood rider):
Well, her fears came true.
As you can probably tell, they started their conversation at 7:32pm, and Ms Lim received her food at about 10pm.
You can read her post here:
Her Mother’s Day dinner might have become a Mother’s Day supper, but at least we learn something from this.
Reader Bao: Don’t order any food from Bukit Batok?
No lah: for every delivery rider out there, he or she has a family, too.
Just be more understanding.
Though there’s a burning question…
Why is “siao liao” bring translated into “I’m fine”?
Google Translate didn’t translate into that leh.
Don’t tell me even Google also says that we must be happy during Mother’s Day? 他妈的.
