The hard work of delivery partners often goes unnoticed as we are mostly concerned about how fast our food or groceries arrive. These individuals brave the weather and odd hours to ensure that our cravings are satisfied promptly. Now, an X post involving a Zomato delivery agent has gone viral as the internet has slammed the woman for making fun of the agent’s request.
A social media user named @priiyyyyyy, shared a screenshot of a message from a Zomato delivery partner who had delivered her order late at night. The message read, "Pls give tip after delivery," with an added note, "For late night." The user posted this screenshot online with a caption that translated to "it's weird bro," seemingly amused by the request for a tip.
The post quickly went viral, but the reaction from the public was far from supportive. Many criticised the user for sharing the screenshot without the delivery partner's consent, calling it a shameful and mean act. Some pointed out that it was insensitive to expose the delivery person's name, treating their request for a tip as if it were a crime.
Tipping, especially during late hours, is not only a gesture of appreciation but also recognition of their extra effort. What are your thoughts on this?
