While we may not think much of the convenience that we enjoy in ordering food to be delivered to our doorstep, it is worth remembering that the hard working men and women who ferry our meals to us often go through some incredible lengths to do so.
Such is the case of one GrabFood delivery rider, who despite suffering from illness during work hours, insisted on completing his delivery route to ensure his customer got their food on time. The story, which was shared by Kelvin Tay over social media, happened in Singapore after Kelvin had dropped off his son at school.
While at a stop light, Kelvin noticed a GrabFood rider who appeared weak, before seemingly slumping down onto his motorbike! Alarmed, he immediately stopped his car and asked if he was alright.
“I met this grab food rider who suddenly collapse with his bike….”
“I realised he looked very pale and body was cold. He kept saying his stomach pain.” Kelvin said.
Helping the delivery rider pick up his bike, Kelvin asked him to go back home to rest and forget about making the delivery. After all, he was in so much pain, he almost fainted! But yet the delivery rider insisted that he completed the delivery before going home to rest.
“I told him, I’ll escort him home and send his last order for him.
Only then he was willing to go home.” Kelvin mentions.
The post, which has since gone viral over social media, garnered a lot of praise for Kelvin’s compassion and willingness to help the GrabFood delivery rider during such circumstances, while also applauding the delivery rider himself for his commitment to his work.
Kelvin also took the opportunity to remind the public the hard work that these men and women go through.
He also advised customers of food delivery services to be patient, and have more empathy towards these frontline workers as demand for their services rise.
“Times like this is not easy. Sometimes if they are slightly late, it’s definitely not intentional. I hope everyone will have more empathy towards them, especially times like now when delivery is on a rise.”
We can’t say we agree any more with Mr Kevin! To the GrabFood delivery rider, we hope that you are resting and recuperating well!
