Default do food couriers ever mess with your food?

So we have been using uber eats lately and just today the delivery guy could not stop laughing (I think he was high) when he handed us the food.

Saw that he was with another buddy who was driving and he was cracking up too.

Made me damn paranoid to eat my food. Damn you paranoia!

Could be with the whole courier service stuff but I will say this.

I worked in restaurants for a while, I was on the line and we would never even think of messing with food and actually had no one ever suggest it either..........

I've seen somebody spit into a side of Italian dressing. I have seen cooks drop a steak onto the floor mid flip, and just put it back on the grill like nothing. When I was in high school some kids that worked at a local pizza joint got in trouble for doing what they called frontal swipes. They would try to grab a handful of pubes and sprinkle them on pizzas. People are gross.

I can't remember the last time I ordered food that had to be delivered.

I try to cook all my own food, but obv I have no idea what is happening to fruit/veggies before I have a chance to wash them.

I briefly worked in the food industry in college, and I can't recall ever doing anything questionable to a customers order.

x2 I have known and currently know quite a few restaurant people and zero have seen anything like that. I would immediately report /fire and possibly call the police (it is illegal). If you see something like that and do not do anything you probably have questionable ethics. Thinking about it I do know one person who said they saw cooks drop food on the floor, kick it around and pick it up. That person, the witness, is not someone you want working for you, thinks quite highly of themselves and makes excuses when I asked why they did not report it (I"i didn't want to make them angry excuse excuse excuse). They also constantly complain at their job and have A poor reputation with management.

Default Re: do food couriers ever mess with your food?

When I was in high school I worked for Subway and a place called Kings Table Buffet. Like others mentioned I never knew people who intentionally messed with peoples food HOWEVER people knowingly did not hesitate to use spoiled or questionable things. For example at Subway back in the day when the meats were already put together not like today were they grab them out of the package. People used to assemble the meats for the sandwiches with no gloves, we used meat that had been made weeks earlier. People use to open cans of tuna and squeeze and mix stuff with hands no gloves. I've seen ants on bread but it still gets used.

Kings Table, I have seen food hit the floor and go right back on a plate or pan no hesitation, I've seen people deep fry greenish chicken and the soups they would take old cooked chicken that sat out in the buffet all day peel them and use them for soups.

I've never seen anyone purposely spit or any of that in peoples food but nasty old food, unclean area's and stuff like that for sure.

Same, was a server back in the day. If I go out and eat I'd never want someone ******* with my food, so I don't **** with their's. Especially in a sushi place.

I used Uber eats for the first time Saturday. That **** was expensive as ****. I could've saved about $22 had I driven the 3 miles myself.

When I delivered pizza we never messed with anyone's food but we knew who the ******** were who would call in for deliveries. We would make sure their orders were delivered last even if it was a close order and other orders were put in after theirs.

We do, but we also eat out on the weekends. But thankfully donít eat at poor people restaurants where this is likely to happen. Kitchens are on display at most of the places in town.

That was as far as it went when I delivered pizzas as well. Never messed with anyone's food and never saw anyone else do it and would have called them out immediately if so.

But yeah we had a "list" of the no tipping problem costumers. To be honest I didn't really give get all that pissed if someone didn't tip. It was going to happen and is just part of the job. But then you had the people who knew they weren't going to tip and instead of just not tipping they felt they needed to fabricate a reason to justify it. Their order would NEVER be right no matter what so they could then act pissed off once you got to the door. Do that a few times and yeah you're getting your order last from that point on.
