A young woman was left horrified when she caught her delivery driver through her doorbell camera making a rather rude gesture outside her home.
Alex Wright, 22, had ordered some McDonald's to be delivered after returning home from a long day of work, but suddenly lost her appetite when she caught the delivery driver on camera.
Watch the footage here:
The young mother-of-one was amused at first, but when she got her order she was so grossed out that she couldn't eat her food.
Alex, who works in a care home in Chesterfield, Derbs, said: "I’d been at work that day and came home annoyed that I had to cook something.
"I decided I would order to save me cooking and washing up when I had to be at work early the next day. I'd
usually drive to pick it up but after a long day I just really couldn’t be bothered to go out again."
Deciding to order in, Alex paid for a Quarter pounder, fries and mozzarella dippers meal.
She said: “I had the notification that the driver was here and went straight to my doorbell app to see he found the house okay.
“We live in a dark corner and it's not immediately obvious which house he would be delivering to. I saw it all live and it lasted a good 45 seconds to a minute.
“Initially I saw the funny side of it and had a giggle to myself before realising how physically disgusting it was, to the point I couldn’t eat the food.”
Alex added: “I understand he didn’t actually handle the food and just the bag. But then I started to think about different scenarios, such as a waiter in a restaurant walking over with my plate of food whilst scratching his genitals.
“He’s not physically handling my food but it’s still disgusting.”
She went on to explain that she had complained to the delivery service and was told that she would get a £12.45 refund for her meal, but has not yet received it.
A member of the delivery service's senior support team also assured her that a block had been put on that particular driver so he "doesn't come here again."
Eventually, the young mum decided to share the video footage online, adding the caption: “If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry.”
