Schoolgirl asks shipper to ‘behave like a child’

ChinaFood delivery shipper in Anhui quit his job after a female student asked him to treat her as “god” and “behave like my child”.

A food delivery man in Hefei city, Anhui province, east China last week posted on social media a text message conversation with a female student at a college in the city. The female student ordered food, but when the shipper delivered the food to the location originally provided, she asked him to take it to another address.

The shipper then texted the student to ask why he didn’t thank him when he delivered the goods to the new address. This female student replied that she was a customer, “his god” and could ask the shipper to do things outside of her usual duties.

This female student also asked the shipper to “behave like my son” and “you work in the service industry, you must know how to serve people”. Due to dissatisfaction, the shipper quit his job.

The incident has attracted the attention of social media users in China. Most people believe the girl was wrong, while her school appealed to the public for tolerance and a chance to apologize.

According to a survey on Meituan, China’s largest food delivery platform, the highest requirement that shippers want from customers is that they know how to say thank you.
