A doordasher sparked a debate after she declined an order because it was night, she was alone, and the orderer changed his name to “Coochieman.”
The video, posted by user @lasvegaseats earlier in the week, currently has over 49,000 views.
“I got a DoorDash for some dumbass who put his name down as ‘Coochieman,'” says @lasvegaseats at the beginning of the video.
After some questions from the Burger King employee, she repeated again that the customer claimed her name was “Coochieman”.
When the clerk then says to call the customer to let them know there are several items missing from their order, @lasvegaseats relents and passes the order to another DoorDash driver.
“Why are men like this?” she asked in the video’s text overlay.
“Although it’s kinda funny not delivering to you alone at night bro,” she added.
This video sparked a heated debate in the comments. Some claimed @lasvegaseats overreacted.
“[It] was a joke,” wrote one user. “Don’t be so touchy.”
“Drama Queen,” added another.
“You’re probably safer to deliver to him than someone with a common name,” said a third. “The creeps don’t usually let it be known they’re creeps.” @lasvegaseats responded to this comment with “lol good point.”
In contrast, others sided with @lasvegaseats.
“I would have done the same,” said one commenter. “And if there’s something wrong with the order…would.”[‘ve] was another sign to say ‘no’. Not today.'”
“You wouldn’t understand, but she did the right thing,” said another user in response to some of the criticisms. “Too many attacks and bad men out there to risk it for ‘CoochMan’.”
@lasvegaseats seems to find the situation funny, noting in comments that the name “coochieman” wasn’t their only reason for declining the order.
“[The Burger King] said they had no meat, fries or soda,” she wrote in a comment. She later added that Coochieman “didn’t leave a tip.”
But the ability for someone to change their name to “Coochieman” prompted TikTokers to ask a bigger question.
“Why do they let people change their names?” one user asked. “It seems so unsafe.” In the comments section, @lasvegaseats agreed.
@lasvegaseats and DoorDash did not immediately respond to Daily Dot’s request for comment via TikTok comment and email, respectively.
