Ordering through a food delivery service can be a hit-or-miss situation. It could take hours. The restaurant might get your order wrong. Perhaps the food is cold by the time it makes it to your door. I solemnly swear never to complain again about any of these harmless annoyances, though, because a man reportedly found DIRTY UNDERWEAR inside his Uber Eats bag.
According to WFLA, a man named Leo (who asked that his last name not be printed) recently ordered dinner from a Japanese restaurant nearby to his Florida hotel. When the order arrived, he reportedly met the Uber Eats driver outside of the hotel to pick up the food. Leo told the station: “I grabbed the food and right when I got the food she took off running and I was like, ‘that was kind of odd.'”

Once back in his hotel room, Leo opened the plastic bag to find his food in a brown paper bag-allegedly sitting beside a pair of “thigh-length underwear, clearly stained with what looked like feces.” Initially, Leo thought it was a fancy napkin when he was pulling out the underwear, Newsweek reports. “Disgusting, unhealthful, it’s potentially deadly,” he said.
Per Newsweek, Leo threw the underwear back in the bag and contacted Uber, the restaurant he ordered from, and the police department. All those he spoke to reportedly expressed sympathy, but said there was little they could do about it.
Delish reached out to Uber for more information regarding the incident and we will update this post as we hear back. In a statement to Newsweek, Uber noted that Leo was given a full refund and “the suspect delivery driver had no prior complaints against her.” A spokesperson for Uber also said, “What’s been reported is very concerning. We are reviewing this order and reaching out to all parties involved to help understand what may have occurred. The courier has been removed from the app pending investigation.”
Leo also requested the Bal Harbor Police Department document the incident on a police report, though a BHPD rep told Newsweek, “No other police action is being taken at this time.”
Now that I’ve thoroughly disgusted you out of ordering delivery tonight, here are all kinds of delicious dinners you can make yourself.
