Pizza Delivery Story

As customers, we often take the delivery boys for granted. For us, they are nameless, faceless people who exist solely to deliver our food. However, have you ever spent a moment reflecting on the nature of their job? They are penalised if we complain that our food was delivered late. They have to crisscross through rush hour traffic, often putting their and others’ lives at risk. They hardly ever have company-provided insurance and nor do they make a great amount of money. Do we not value their lives?

The following is an incident shared by the Kolkata Traffic Police on Facebook emphasising the same.


“Sir, sorry I have to deliver this order”

“I don’t want to have a Pizza in 30 minutes at the cost of someone’s life!

As a customer sometimes we get excited that when you see a promo “If the Pizza doesn’t come in next 30 minutes it is free”. But this Sunday I experienced a situation which I wanted to share with all of you.

I was driving with my family. I was standing in one of the traffic signals, just beside me came a young guy who had a food order to deliver, the signal turned green and in no moment, this guy rushed his bike crisscrossed me, was about to overtake and fly to deliver his order, but he skidded and came right under my car, fortunately it was a near miss.

I came out of my car, was really upset with him. I shouted at him ”What is wrong with you, you would have died?

He replied with a lot of pain, “Sir, sorry I have to deliver this order I got delayed because of traffic, so I was rushing through.” I gave him some basic first aid and he disappeared in no time.

I asked myself, I cannot risk a life and support companies that promise me to deliver a free order if it’s getting delayed. I value and respect life

I just wanted to pass my thoughts to you and request to please pay for your food order even if it gets delayed. These young guys risk their lives to get a hot Pizza sometimes even risking their lives.”
