I have used UberEats, DoorDash, and Postmates but never have I seen a delivery guy sample the product before delivering.
Rajesh Malhotra ordered a Cold Stone Creamery milkshake for his son but was surprised to find out what he witnessed on his door cam the next morning. The DoorDash driver did not know he was being filmed and right there he was caught on videotape sampling the young man’s milkshake.
That alone would anger me, but there is more. Malhotra contacted the store and took a copy of the video for proof, and as of yet, they have not responded to the incident that happened two weeks ago.
The Malhotras didn’t know what had happened until the next morning when they checked the footage.
“I looked at it, ‘Hey, the guy who delivered the food was sipping out of my son’s Cold Stone,'” homeowner Rajesh Malhotra told KTXL.
Malhotra said he likes buying delivery items but now he’s going to think twice before placing his next order.
“(I thought), ‘Whoa, that’s crazy.’ I mean, how can someone jeopardize the product like that, especially the food?”Malhotra said.
It was Malhotra’s 14-year-old son who answered the door.
“I felt really disgusted about what had happened,” said Rishab Malhotra.
He told KTXL he enjoyed his cookies and cream milkshake until the next day when he learned he wasn’t the only one who tried his drink. [excerpt via WGNtv]
The driver didn’t know the drink was for the child but does that matter? In addition to all of this drama, why hasn’t the store contacted the consumer with a follow-up? Who does that?
