Heartless Customer Cancels FoodPanda Order, Throws Food at Rider

A heartless customer cancels her FoodPanda order and throws food at the rider for being late in bringing her food! The story has gone viral, with many netizens wishing karma on the woman for her heartless actions.

Delayed Order Gets Canceled

These days, a lot of people enjoy the convenience of simply using their smartphones to order food from their favorite restaurants. So, despite the lockdown and various versions of the community quarantine wherein most people are not allowed to go out, they can still fulfill their cravings for such delicious foods.

What’s sad, however, is that there are customers who are so impatient with their orders that they get angry or even cancel when the rider takes a long time to deliver their food! But that is not the rider’s fault because the restaurants are usually too busy these days, too.

There are just too many people making orders for takeout or delivery food.

In Cebu City, a certain Mary Paras ordered food worth Php800+ from Chowking. When the FoodPanda rider arrived at her house, however, Mary reportedly refused to accept the order because the rider was late.

Considering that the rider had shelled out nearly Php1k for the food, he tried to insist that Mary pay for the order. But she got angry and threw the food at him! The poor rider had no choice but to leave, knowing that the customer won’t pay up.

But a concerned passerby snapped some photos and shared these on Facebook where the incident went viral. The heartless customer received netizens’ ire.

Mary would later issue an apology, explaining that the FoodPanda rider is the second to arrive at their home with her order. She claimed that the first time she placed her order, the app was ‘loading’. She had no idea that order pushed through. So, she received the same order twice; thus, she didn’t accept the second one.

This translates to:

“Good evening sa lahat na nagcomment sa Food Panda. Hindi ko po intension na manloko ng tao higit na sa panahon ito. Magcocomment nalang din po ako kasi nasasaktan na din ako sa mga sinasabi ng mga tao.

Kaya po eh explain ko po yung nangyari noong una nag-order ako pero nagloloading po at matagal yung net at data sa app. Hindi ko po namalayan na naorder na pala iyon at nadalawa na pala yung order ko. Noong dumating ang inorder po namin may tumawag ulit di ko nalang pinansin dahil dumating na yung order.

Kung may mali po ako nanghihingi po ako ng pasensya sa rider, kinontak ko na po siya at handa po akong magbayad sa kanyang pinang abono at nagpapasalamat din po ako sa nagpost po nito para mabigyang linaw ang lahat.”

But netizens are not buying her alibi. Many said that even if that is the case, she shouldn’t have been rude to the rider!

Safety in Food Delivery

These days of COVID-19, it is important to stay safe by staying at home. There are options for food delivery so you can still enjoy your favorite food from popular restaurants. Many restaurants impose many protocols to ensure safety in food delivery.

After a delivery rider walks to bring the customer’s order when someone took his bike while he was picking up the food, his story went viral – and someone got him a new bike!

What a wonderful turn of events…

Delivery Rider Receives New Bike after Walking to Deliver Customer’s Order

It’s sad that there are people who take advantage of others for their own gain.

While that’s a reality that we face every single day, our faith in humanity was restored after learning about the story of a delivery rider who walked to his customer’s houses to deliver their food after someone took his bike.

It all started when netizen Danica Samson shared the story of FoodPanda delivery rider Paulo Tayam Pichay.

According to Danica, she was wondering it took so long for her food to arrive from a Jollibee outlet in Malabon.

It was a good thing she didn’t cancel the order because the guy bringing her food was actually walking to their house.

The rider (well, hiker now) explained that someone took his bike while he was picking up his customer’s order.

Despite losing his bike, he decided to continue delivering the orders because he felt bad about the money he could earn with the deliveries.

A surprised Danica snapped some photos of the tired rider who looked so tired.

Paglingon ko sa kanya, napasandal nalang sya sa pader – hapong hapo at pawis na pawis,” she wrote.

Kinakamusta ko sya kung nakita nya na sa cctv yung nagnakaw ng bike nya, nagdedeliver padin sya kahit naglalakad nalang siya. Nanghihinayang daw sya sa pumapasok na orders sa kanya kaya dinedeliver nya padin kahit lakad nalang.

Mom Shares Hilarious Photo of Kids Sleeping on the Floor While Cat Uses Bed

A mom shares a hilarious photo of her kids sleeping on the floor while their cat uses the bed. You certainly know who’s the boss in this house, right? LOL

Hilarious Photo Shows Kids on Floor While Cat Uses Bed

Pets such as cats and dogs enjoy varied privileges in different homes. While many dogs are left outside the house, others are also allowed to be inside and even sleep in their owner’s bedrooms.

Other pets have their own beds, while others share the beds with their owners.

But in the house of fur mom Maricris Mararac of Trece Mariteres, Cavite, it’s an entirely different story. Like in other homes, their cat sleeps on their bed – but her kids are the ones who sleep on the floor! Oooops. Did the rules change, somehow?

Sa bahay, hindi po mga anak ko nakahiga sa foam, kundi ‘yung pusa po…” Maricris captioned a photo she posted on social media.

She explained that they adopted the now 2-year-old cat, named Anyo, during the pandemic. They found him as a kitten in the streets and took him home.

But the stray cat would soon become a huge part of their family – and the real king inside her kids’ bedroom. LOL.

Tapos madalas pusa na lang nasa foam. Male cat po ‘yan, puspin pinulot lang namin sa kalsada nung baby pa siya.
