This delivery rider went out of his way to get candles for his customer!
They say that a simple act of kindness is more than enough to make one happy. This is the case for Instagram user, @bobmubarak. He took to social media to share a story about his delightful experience with a delivery rider.
3 days ago, @bobmubarak shared that he ordered cheesecake via Grab delivery but had forgotten to ask for candles. As such, he messaged his rider for help, asking if he could help him check with the shop if they had candles. Unfortunately, the shop does not provide candles.
What happened next left @bobmubarak pleasantly surprised and thankful. His delivery rider offered to get candles for him from another shop despite the former telling him that it’s alright.
Indeed, when his cheesecake was delivered, it came with a box of candles as well. He said, “It was not a small gesture. As a customer, I felt like this was a huge gesture and he was extremely kind and sincere about it.”
For the delivery rider to go out of his way for his customer, that is truly admirable and something to be praised for!
Being a delivery rider isn’t easy… Due to the nature of COVID restrictions in this period, these people are working extra hard for the sake of us Singaporeans.
Delivery riders often receive several orders at one go, having to deliver them back to back without being able to catch a break. Sometimes they even have to wait a long time for the food to be prepared during peak hours.
Like what @bobmubarak said, we all tend to forget their hard work at times, and sometimes just a simple “thank you” from us is enough to make their day. Let’s not stop appreciating these unsung heroes of ours!
