Delivery rider cooks food order himself after restaurant takes too long

Food delivery riders have become the unsung heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing delicious food to our doorsteps so we don’t have to risk getting infected when grabbing a bite to eat outside.

And for a lot of us, ordering-in has always been the norm, even in pre-COVID times. Either way, there’s no denying that we truly do rely on food delivery riders to make our lives just a tad bit easier.

However, not all orders proceed smoothly. Sometimes, especially during peak hours, you might have to wait a little bit longer before the delivery rider shows up at your doorstep with today’s lunch.

Taking things into his own hands, quite literally.

Ralphs, Food 4 Less locations closing in Long Beach over ‘hero pay’

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — Grocery company Kroger announced on Monday it will be shuttering two of its stores in Long Beach — a Ralphs location and a Food 4 Less store — in response to a city ordinance requiring a $4 “hero pay” salary boost for some workers.

“As a result of the city of Long Beach’s decision to pass an ordinance mandating extra pay for grocery workers, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close long-struggling store locations in Long Beach,” according to a company statement. “This misguided action by the Long Beach City Council oversteps the traditional bargaining process and applies to some, but not all, grocery workers in the city.”
