SINGAPORE — A GrabFood delivery rider, who was caught on security camera drinking a beverage from a food order that he was delivering, has been banned by food delivery platform Grab.
Mr Hazique Hibri, the customer, shared this on TikTok, with some online users recounting similar experiences.
In his post, Mr Hazique showed footage of the delivery rider guzzling his drink in front of his house, taken from Mr Hazique’s closed circuit-television (CCTV) camera.
His suspicions that his iced Milo order from McDonald’s had been tampered with were confirmed, he said, when he saw that the area around the lid of the cup was wet with droplets of the drink and possibly “saliva or sweat”.
He showed a photo of a drink that was visibly only three-quarters full and had a wet lid.
Mr Hazique said that he had tried to confront the delivery rider but was met with confusion, as the rider responded with just “huh”.
He said: “I feel for these food delivery riders and I understand that the work is tiring. I understand that you can get thirsty.
“But just don’t pass me something that you’ve put your lips on.”
Mr Hazique highlighted that the delivery rider had a five-star rating on the Grab mobile application and that he does not think that it is the rider’s first time doing this.
The video of his account of the incident, posted on Wednesday (Sept 6), has gained close to 300,000 views and more than 600 comments as of Friday.
