This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
More than one in four food delivery drivers have taken a bite out of an order, according to a nausea-inducing new study. The survey conducted by US Foods revealed this week that 28 percent of food delivery app messengers admitted to nibbling on customers’ food — and even more have been tempted to sneak a bite. Roughly 54 percent of the delivery people surveyed said they at least considered taking a taste after smelling the order.
“We’re sorry to report that sometimes, impulse gets the best of deliverers, and they violate their sacred duty by taking some of the food!” said the researchers, who surveyed 497 drivers from apps such as UberEats, Grubhub, DoorDash and Postmates.
The same study found that 21 percent of customers had suspected a driver of munching on their order — but the gross confession from the drivers will still likely leave them peeved. When asked how upset they would be about a driver grabbing a few fries, customers reported they’d rate their dissatisfaction at 8.4 on a scale of 1 being “no big deal” and 10 as “absolutely unacceptable.”
The study found that 85 percent of customers want to see tamper-evident labels on the food to discourage delivery drivers from tasting their chow before it reaches their door. In the survey, delivery drivers also complained that customers engaged in some bad behavior.
“Of the nearly 500 deliverers we surveyed, topping the list is weak tips, food not being ready at the restaurant, and lack of communication with customers,” researchers said.
At least 60 percent said they’d received a bad tip if they got one at all.
