A delivery rider stuck a weight loss note along with a McDonald’s order. After the customer shared the note, netizens said it’s an insult and the rider should lose his job! Do you agree?
Delivery Rider Puts Weight Loss Note in McDonald’s Delivery
According to the WHO (World Health Organization), more than 1.9 billion people across the world are overweight in 2019. Of this number, 650 million are obese.
There are many factors that cause obesity but regular eating of unhealthy fast food items is among the most common reason across countries, particularly in the US.
But should delivery riders intervene with these people’s choices?
That’s the subject of a recent debate after a netizen named Suzie (@soozieque / TikTok) shared a video of the food she ordered from McDonald’s. Along with the package is a note from the DoorDash rider, “Lose weight, ask me how!”
It’s a business card for a weight loss club where the rider is obviously part of.
Suzie said that she wasn’t offended by the note but she shared it on TikTok because she had a good laugh about it.
“No hate here, I was laughing for a while. I kind of wanted to give him a high five,” she later wrote in a comment after the post went viral.
But many netizens think that the guy was trying to insult her for being obese and that he tampered with the food delivery by inserting his business card. Many believe that he should lose his job over this matter.
Yet other netizens were more lenient and pointed out that the guy was probably just trying to earn extra income to make ends meet. They believe it wasn’t an insult directed at Suzie but that the guy just hoped he’d get a new client by putting this along with the order.
