A Thai delivery man has gone viral after going to great lengths to drop off a pizza with a customer who was in the middle of a river.
On April 18, the man, who goes by Ake KB on Facebook, shared that he had received a set of unusual directions while making a GrabFood delivery on his motorbike. The man initially thought that the customer’s pinned location, which was set somewhere in a river, was a mistake, but Ake KB still decided to follow through with the order.
With the help of some generous noodle vendors he met by the river, Ake KB revealed that he was able to make his way to the customer, who, in turn, tipped him 100 baht (about $3.19) for making the trip. The delivery man said he thanked the vendors who had assisted him by paying them 60 baht (approximately $1.91) for the boat ride.
Ake KB’s story has since gone viral, receiving over 73,000 reactions and more than 1,600 comments from amused Facebook users.
“Well done,” one person wrote in Thai. “Took responsibility for the customer’s needs.”
“I respect you, but [the customer] ordered it in the middle of the river,” another added.
At least one person, however, criticized the customer for not accommodating Ake KB.
“[The customer] should have swum ashore to pick it up,” the user wrote. “I pity the delivery man.”
No additional information on the customer was provided.
