McDonald’s employee complains about Uber Eats drivers

When restaurants and delivery drivers work together, it can be a recipe for disaster.

A McDonald’s employee recently shared her experience of dealing with a demanding Uber Eats driver while she had a counter full of orders.

In the video, TikTok user Tei (@_username1320505) sits on her bed in her McDonald’s uniform.

She looks uncomfortable as the text overlay reads, “If you have a full counter and drive through the screen, but the overdriver who’s just arrived is obnoxious at the counter with his phone in front of your face.”

Tei didn’t immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment via TikTok comment.

As of Wednesday, the video had been viewed more than 274,800 times and garnered hundreds of comments, including from fellow restaurant workers who have a bone to pick with delivery drivers.

“I once attacked one of them a little,” wrote one.

“When they say the person’s name instead of the code,” complained another. “Bro they’re standing there so demanding,” added a third worker with a crying emoji.

These workers are fed up with delivery drivers acting like they deserve special treatment. “Delivery drivers act like they’re VIPs or something at McDonald’s… AT A MCDONALDS, really?” wrote one user.

Viewers continued to share horror stories about delivery drivers. “One time they took the bag before it was even ready,” shared one person. “When they yell at you and you just stand there with tears in your eyes,” added another.

While most restaurant workers try to avoid confrontation, there are some who refuse to let delivery drivers get in the way. “I just tell them to move,” wrote one. “Because they don’t just come to my place of work and treat me like a dog.”

Finally, delivery drivers entered the chat to offer their opinions on this dog-eat-dog world. “As a person doing Doordash, we’re just at ease because we actually understand there’s only so much one person can do,” the worker shared.

Another driver shared that he has to be pushy to get his customer’s order delivered on time. “I understand you are very busy, but if I can see my customer’s order in the bank, I would like at least one person to serve me,” the commenter said.
