A DoorDash driver driving by Ordinary Delivery Guy (@ordinarydeliveryguy) on TikTok has been criticized after calling a customer “lazy” for ordering from a McDonald’s a block away.

Other users on the platform said the driver was judgmental and offered a litany of different reasons why someone would choose to have McDonald’s deliver to them at 10:48 p.m.

The TikToker writes in a text overlay on the video, “Why would anyone order McDonald’s, that’s literally around the corner, he’s taken laziness to the next level,” before adding, “Not worth it 30 minutes in the drive-thru.” to wait just to get paid $3.75.”

He continues in the text: “Take your car, your bike or your legs to get your own food.”

The video camera slightly zooms in on the order on the map. The DoorDash driver then starts interacting with their phone screen, where they click on a few menu options before finally refusing the Gig.

“Go back!” The last text overlay on the clip is displayed before the screen goes black.

A caption for the video reads, “McDonald’s drive-thru line is always long at night, smh.”

This isn’t the first time someone has reported having groceries delivered to their door from a location within walking distance of their home. A TikToker named Dani (@diamondpretzel2.0) posted a similar video. However, she posted from the customer’s perspective when ordering Olive Garden via DoorDash, even though she could physically see the restaurant from her apartment window. Still, she chose to pay a delivery fee rather than go there herself to get her food.

The Daily Dot has contacted McDonald’s via email and Ordinary Delivery Guy via TikTok comment for more information.

Declining orders are a hot topic of conversation among DoorDash drivers who work for the company. While some say company employees working on a 1099 arrangement can “technically” refuse as many orders as they want, others say that’s not the case and have reservations about declining delivery requests too often pronounced.

A blog post on Duck Trap Motel shared screenshots of a warning message that supposedly pops up on a DoorDasher’s application screen if it refuses to take a certain number of orders.

A late 2022 Reddit post uploaded to the r/doordash subreddit also claims that drivers will be fined if they refuse too many orders. User @mojucy wrote: “Doordash actually penalizes you for refusing orders. I’ve researched this and they publicly state that the acceptance rate doesn’t affect you unless you’re over 70 and you won’t be penalized for that. I was stopped without orders 4 times within 2 hours.”

Other TikTokers who saw Ordinary Delivery Guy’s video had mixed opinions about his decision to decline the order. Some urged him not to judge a person’s decision to order food from a Mickey D’s location so close to the delivery address.

Others suggested the person may have been too busy to leave their seat to get food and only had a small window of opportunity to deliver it to them. Some indicated that the person may have been ill and unable to leave their location.

“Maybe sick bro don’t judge,” wrote one user. Another wrote: “Maybe they have Covid and aren’t allowed to go anywhere,” while user @inski_37 said, “What if they are disabled.”

“Could be sick. Might have an injury,” added another viewer. “There are many reasons why someone ordered food around the corner. Not always just laziness.”

One TikTok user @nataliemarquez04 wrote, “I ordered McDonald’s around the corner, I didn’t have a car and I stayed home with the kids but ok.”

Others chimed in, offering their own personal experiences from the consumer side, which seem to support these speculative comments.

“I’m legally blind and can’t get around because of fibromyalgia,” said one user. “I do that too. I guess too. Please don’t judge us.”
