With everyone being asked to stay at home as much as possible, the safest way to get essentials like groceries and food is through delivery services. However, this puts delivery drivers at high-risk, as they have to be out and about despite the COVID-19 outbreak.

A customer realised how hard it must be for these riders and decided to give back by buying some food for his GrabFood rider as a gift.

Translation: I ordered [this] food for you, bro. The delivery riders are now very busy as no one wants to go out. This is a thank you gift for bringing us food and [other] things we need. Stay safe and enjoy the food.

The chat box features the customer, Natdanai Lee, who indicated that he didn’t need Mr. Nueng to deliver the food to him, but instead keep it for himself to have as lunch.

He also added that delivery drivers are all busy during this time of the COVID-19 outbreak, so he needed to say thank you for Mr. Nueng’s dedication.

It’s true that delivery riders are just doing their job and that this is their way to earn money. However, with the virus going around, it’s important for us to recognise that they are putting their lives at risk just to make ours a little easier. 

To all delivery staff out there, thank you for feeding us. We hope you all stay safe!
