A woman named Alisha Jennings-Oluwosuko was having a bit of a stressful day at the hospital, visiting a family member at John Hopkins in Maryland. Jennings-Oluwosuko told BuzzFeed that she'd ordered some food, but things got so hectic she forgot she even placed her order with UberEats. She missed a call from her delivery guy, and then texted the unknown number. Once she realized who it was, she asked where they were, and got a pretty snarky response:
Jennings-Oluwosuko says there are a million entrances and exits to the hospital, so she didn't think it was such a crazy question. Though she thought it was a bit rude, she wasn't that mad, and they joked about it when they finally met up. But then Jennings-Oluwosuko jokingly shared the text exchange.
Unexpectedly, the text convo blew up. Guess everyone loves a smart ass:
There was someone who didn't think the delivery guy's text was funny: Uber. According to BuzzFeed, they originally tweeted at Jennings-Oluwosuko that she should DM them so they could rectify the situation.
But most of the responses to that tweet, which has since been deleted, were "chill." Jennings-Oluwosuko told BuzzFeed, "Everyone’s trying to make their living, it’s not that serious." Eventually Uber got the message and tried to jump in on the fun.
