AIBU?

To think I shouldn't eat the randomly delivered McDonalds

A Deliveroo driver dropped off a McDonalds takeaway on my front doorstep and vanished before I knew a thing about it. It's not mine. I've knocked next door in case it was theirs and rang both phone numbers on the receipt without answer. Someone else paid for it and I feel conflicted about digging in. AIBU?

Would be stone cold and hard by the time you've receieved enough comments and deliberated on it, surely?

YellowTreeHouse · 06/10/2022 19:47

Why wouldn’t you? There’re not coming back for it.

Classinglass · 06/10/2022 19:50

You’ve done all you can it would be a shame to waste it

WiddlinDiddlin · 06/10/2022 19:51

You may as well, it's going in the bin if you don't.

I have had this happen, when it doesn't turn up with whoever ordered it they will complain and either get it redelivered or get a refund.

Thank you! I am so indecisive it's insane. Yep, tepid.

Can you heat it up in the air fryer 😂

RagzRebooted · 06/10/2022 19:52

You tried. Eat it before it's cold. What's in it?!

Keroppi · 06/10/2022 19:52

Dig in!!!

You definitely could.

FlissyPaps · 06/10/2022 19:53

The person whose ordered it will be able to track it via the app. They’ll soon see it’s at the wrong address.

Im assuming they’d be able to raise it with Deliveroo and get a re-fund or a replacement order sent out ASAP.

If you’re hungry eat it. If not, bin it.

thepriceoffish · 06/10/2022 19:54

Maybe it was meant to be delivered to you.....

LauderSyme · 06/10/2022 19:55

Choc shake, quarter pounder, triple cheeseburger, fries. Orderer dislikes pickles.

That’s weird because ours was supposedly delivered around half hour ago but never arrived. 🤔

They won’t be able to get a replacement sent out. That’s not how it works.

They will be able to get a refund though.

I would just nuke it, I don’t mind a soggy chip and I love it when the cheese goos into the wrapper to be picked off later 🤣🤣

Georgeskitchen · 06/10/2022 19:58

Dig in. The original recipient will get a refund but annoyingly it probably won't be immediately

I’ve had replacement orders sent out before with Deliveroo and JustEat.

EveryFlightBeginsWithAFall · 06/10/2022 20:00

I'd eat it, they'll get a refund

I had a Starbucks delivered the other week, wasn't mine I'd ordered a greggs! I did eat it in the end.

We've also had the wrong mcdonalds order turn up and been refunded. There was 6 cheese burgers , 2 mayo burgers and a big mac

Yeah, do this - just wrap the burgers in foil and leave the fries loose and it’ll be loads better than from the microwave.

You shouldn’t have. The restaurants don’t pay the drivers, they are not their employees, so they are getting drivers to run your order for free by doing so.

That’s why it’s policy that replacement orders aren’t sent out.

Well I have.

Can’t turn the clock back unfortunately and request a full refund instead. You better contact their HQ if your concerned about my past orders and their policies.

MysweetAudrina · 06/10/2022 20:10

It would only be after I had eaten it that I would probably ask myself that same question

pigsDOfly · 06/10/2022 20:10

Would you really eat something that's just been left on your doorstep?

Wouldn't eat McDonalds anyway so maybe I'm not looking at this the way others might but just can't imagine eating something that appears on my doorstep.

I know you have. I didn’t say it doesn’t happen. It does, but it’s rare and it shouldn’t.

It generally happens when you have young inexperienced managers that struggle explaining why the order cannot be sent out again.

Yabvu ... choc milkshake is 🤮! But eat the rest 😂
