Couple Receives Super Gross UberEATS Delivery (Photos)
It's always a bummer when you order delivery food, and your driver shows up a little late with lukewarm stuff that is totally not fresh anymore. Or maybe you get the wrong order, or your food never even arrives.
Compared to a couple who said they got two moldy, partially eaten sandwiches from UberEATS, your most upsetting takeout experience could have been a whole lot worse.
Anna Kotlikova and Blake Weinzettl ordered two pizzas and a couple cans of soda on June 4, according to CBC. Sounds pretty normal, right?
Well, after waiting about a half hour longer than the delivery estimate, the driver finally arrived at their door with what Kotlikova described as "a huge brown bag" filled with ancient-looking sandwiches, one of which was partially eaten, two round discs that could have been anything and a salad that looked like it has also been sitting out for a while.
"I don't know where [the driver] got this mysterious big brown bag with an order number, which wasn't even our order number, or the order number from the restaurant," she told CBC. " … I don't know where this guy was driving to, because he definitely did go somewhere. And where is this old food coming from? And why is he doing this?"
She said that seals were broken and the utensils were opened.
"The smell overwhelmed the whole room," she added.
Weinzettl told Global News that he "was appalled."
"I instantly wanted to vomit, as soon as I looked at it," he added.
Another mystery: The UberEATS app shows where the driver is once they pick up an order. Kotlikova said that after they got an alert that the driver picked up the food, the app showed him being 15 minutes away from both the restaurant and their home in Etobicoke, a suburb of Toronto, Canada, according to CBC.
The pizza joint's general manager said that two other people complained that the same thing happened to them that night.
Uber refunded their money, gave them a $25 voucher and promised to deal with the situation, but to them it's not enough.
"We wanted Uber to have a sense of urgency," Kotlikova said.
