Amazon delivery driver calls out customers who 'order every day' but don't feed her
| Last updated
Amazon Prime means that it's easier than ever before to receive package after package every day, but few of us stop to think about the people delivering them.
The employee, who appears to be based in the US, said in a video reposted to Twitter that the people she delivers to regularly aren't leaving her snacks.
"If you order from Amazon every day, every other day or every week, I'm pretty sure you got the same driver almost every day," she said in the now-viral video.
The woman, who was wearing her Amazon uniform in the video - which could very well have been filmed as a tongue-in-cheek joke - then questioned: "And you ain't putting no snacks out there?!"
She then points at the camera and says: "You're wrong. You're wrong."
When the clip was reposted by @grindfacetv_, it was jokingly captioned 'Damn now I gotta feed the Amazon driver', and it sparked a fierce debate about what the young woman was asking for.
Reacting to the clip, which has been viewed over a million times since it was posted on 7 March, one Twitter user joked: "I left a bag a Cheetos out but it blew away. Weather be crazy [sic]."
A second user, who was also a delivery driver, empathised with the woman's plight and said a snack can make a driver's day.
They wrote: "I feel her tho i work for them too ion be expecting nothing but a lil caprisun Rice Krispie treat really make my day [sic]."
A third, meanwhile, said while it would be a nice gesture, it certainly shouldn't be expected.
"I think if you have packages every single day it would be cool if you did something every now and then," they wrote. "But I definitely don’t think you should have to."
A fourth viewer pointed out that while some customers do leave snacks, they aren't in everyone's budget.
They wrote: "I worked at Amazon and FedEx for years. If we [are] being honest only the Rich white families be leaving snacks and gatorade. Everytime I deliver in the hood it ain't gone be none of that.
"It’s the broke families not calling them broke fr but the ones that don’t got that in [their] budget [sic]."
Meanwhile, a fifth viewer said that they couldn't feed their Amazon driver even if they wanted to because they've literally never seen them.
"I've never seen an amazon driver deliver at my house in person. They drop, take a pic, and go," they revealed.
