It’s Saturday – I know most of us have ordered something today.
Yesterday, I was psyching myself that I can cook… I still have some alcohol in the house….
Ideally, whether yesterday, Saturday, tomorrow, the day before yesterday, we ordered something!
Have you ever thought what goes in your delivery guy’s head?
Like in this period – on normal days (Yes! Our new normal is pretty hard to define) Like in this quarantine and Corona Times, what do these guys really think of when it’s time to drop off a package in people’s homes?
I’ve seen all these kind of videos of how people are disinfected (mostly family relatives) before entering the house. While others being very careful by telling them to leave the package at the gate or picking stuff using brooms.
I personally rush to the sink to wash them first. (It’s a freaking paper Chelsea – Just throw it away and wash your hands.) No! Chelsea will go to the sink, wash each detail, that paper better soak up the water, wash off the corona, just for me to feel safe.
Same goes to the bottles of alcohol delivered to my house. I actually put them in the fridge – didn’t they teach us bacteria don’t survive cold temperatures? 🤷🏾♀️
(Dumbest Chelsea!!!) Maybe not so dumb to herself… Hahaha
P.s – I’m the queen of General Nonsense on Quiz Up in Kenya (I’m open to competition 🤩)
But, back to my question, have we ever thought of what these guys think…
“Why am I risking my life delivering to these houses, they might as well be infected”
“Well, I need that money”
“It’s only 2 minutes”….. “Wait, do I have my sanitizer”…
“I have gloves..should be fine”
But what’s their reaction when it comes to knocking your door…..
“Let’s see what this weirdo does this house around”
Knocks door (all calm and reserved)
“Who’s that?” (Wait!! Is it so weird we normally know when it’s the delivery guy at the gate 🤣🤣🤣) We walk right to our food all happy and shit!! Probably the only time a stranger is well received. But on normal days, we ask, “Who’s that?” – Just incase it’s not the electricity guys or the water guys…..
The awkward look when you meet eye to eye (most delivery guys just don’t like to see you eye to eye – the judgement from ‘mental’ people who would think their tired eyes are caused by corona)
“Here you go”
The hesitation…. (should I take it by the corner or is the bottom part the most neglected place to touch) If only we could tell them to drop them for us to analyze – like we have the lenses to see germs 🙄
“Oh Thanks! (weird smile because you know the moment you close the door it’s a marathon to the f****** sink to wash your hands)
Once the door closes, “Yup!!!! Corona Weirdo”…… “Oh, Lemme sanitize for my own sake too”
On to the next house…. I wonder what holds in the next house.
But on another note, we need to appreciate these guys…. It’s not easy leaving your family at home to go back and not hug your loved ones till you are ‘clean’
What’s funny is how I have come to write and analyze these delivery guys….. We need to get back to going out… 🤦🏾♀️
What’s your experience with Delivery guys..
