Few things in life are more aggravating than having your food order canceled. When services like DoorDash or Postmates have no one available to pick up your order, this is what usually happens.
However, this doesn’t always indicate that no one is available to pick up your meal. It could just mean that the couriers on the job don’t want to.
A new TikTok video explaining the circumstances surrounding DoorDash orders has gone viral. It appears that good tips are the key to getting your food delivered.
Jhordan, a DoorDash employee, used TikTok to post a video on DoorDash employees being independent contractors. This implies they are not legally obligated to pick up every order placed with them.
Workers can choose which orders they wish to take. Thus good tippers always get their orders, according to Jhordan.
Jhordan showed a photo of dozens of McDonald’s bags lying in a room, proving that nobody wanted to pick up the orders and deliver them to non-tipping customers.
Since then, the TikTok video has gained over 489,900 views and 22,000 comments, sparking a heated controversy among customers.
