In a now-going viral TikTok, an alleged Instacart shopper complained she took an order for someone who bought “115 items” at the grocery store.
The short video, posted by user @kierra.diamond, shows her checking out at a grocery store while a cashier orders her food. There’s a full line of items on the cashier’s conveyor belt, plus a cart full of groceries.
The video itself has a text overlay that says: “Dear person with 115 entries on Instacart,” followed by face emoji is not changed.
But not everyone is sympathetic to TikToker. In the comments, several users indicated that she applied for this job.
“It’s not your job,” wrote one user.
“Isn’t Instagram for groceries?” a second question.
“So you guys expect [a] an order,” a third viewer wrote. “If you don’t want to deliver groceries, get another job.”
These comments seem to have prompted @kierra.diamond to explain why she was willing to take such a large order. In her own comment, she explains that working for Instacart is not her “job”, but a “side hustle”. She also said that she accepted the order because it was $87 and people took her TikTok too seriously.
“It’s a TikTok.. really just a TikTok,” she wrote.
And not everyone is not on her side. Indeed, it seems that another good segment of viewers thinks the amount of groceries ordered is also absurd.
“They know they were wrong,” one person wrote.
“Never. Better than $50 or more,” a second commented.
“If there’s anything Instacart and Doordash customers have, it’s boldness,” a third Written.
