Couple works for DoorDash on their date night, sparking debate

One woman shared in a now-viral TikTok that she and her husband spent their date night working for DoorDash. “If your husband doesn’t want to mess with you, dump him,” she urged viewers.

Teresa Jack’s video (@teresa_jack) has been viewed 1.8 million times.

In the video, Jack and her husband stop at Dairy Queen, pick up the order and deliver it to the customer’s house. “We try to make money instead of spending it,” reads the text overlay. “So we rush through the door and hang out together.”

“After 4 years of marriage you get creative,” Jack added in the comments section.

The video got quite a reaction from viewers. Some argued that the date wasn’t a real date since the two worked, and one even called it a “capitalist nightmare.”

“It’s cute until you realize the capitalist nightmare of a couple having to work on a ‘rendezvous’ just to make more money,” they wrote.

“This isn’t a date night. That’s a job. Call it what it is,” argued another.

Others pointed critically at the payment of DoorDashers. “They’re literally chasing that dollar because that’s all they’re paying out,” one quipped.

According to DoorDash’s website, workers pay a base fee based on the “estimated time, distance and desirability of the order.”

Jack revealed in the comments that the couple doesn’t make much working together for DoorDash. Jack also revealed that she and her husband take turns doing deliveries and make about $50 a night.

“We don’t make much, but it pays for a full tank whenever we do it. Using that is a big help,” she said, referring to high gas prices in the US.

Not all viewers were critical, however.

“You go! That’s such a cute idea!” said one person.

“Lol. Real couples do that!!” another person agreed.

Apparently, Jack and her husband aren’t the only couple who have worked together for DoorDash.

“My boyfriend and I have done this several times just for fun,” said one viewer.

“Honestly, my fiancé and I have the most fun! We also have so many deep conversations, love it!!” another agreed.

The Daily Dot contacted Jack via TikTok comment.
