GrabFood riders (or any food delivery workers really) generally don’t face that easy a job. Throughout their workday, they might have to deal with hangry customers, annoyed restaurant staff and rough weather on top of navigating the streets to find drop-off locations of orders they’re carting around.
But once in a while, they get pretty awesome customers. Like GrabFood deliveryman Azmie Gahni did yesterday afternoon when he was tasked to deliver an order to a house along Jalan Senang in the Kembangan district. In a post made on the GrabFood Delivery Rider Singapore Facebook page, Azmie recounted how the customer, who lives on a landed property, made his day.
First, there was the drop-off instruction that wasn’t an urgent request to make haste with the food. Instead, the patron told him not to hurry at all, and even not to ride if it was raining. “It’s ok if late”, wrote the customer, more concerned for the rider’s safety than mealtime.
That would have been fine enough, but the customer took the extra step of passing Azmie a little thank-you gift — a Christmas bounty of sorts with candies.
Other riders chimed in on his post — apparently, the Kembangan estate is known for its amicable folks.
Azmie also pointed out that it’s courteous acts such as these that make him want to ensure deliveries get sent as fast as possible.
