Alisha Jennings-Oluwosuko, 20, was visiting a family member at the John Hopkins Hospital in Maryland when the UberEats delivery she ordered turned sour.
According to BuzzfeedNews, Jennings-Oluwosuko got so caught up in things at the hospital she completely forgot about the food she ordered from a local burger restaurant.
When Jennings-Oluwosuko got a call from an unknown number, she ignored it at first but later texted: “Who is this?”
It turned out to be the young woman’s Uber Eats delivery driver, so Jennings-Oluwosuko asked if he was at the main entrance.
The salty Uber driver replied, “No I’m on top of the building I just landed my helicopter,” and then confirmed he was actually at the main entrance.
Jennings-Oluwosuko told Buzzfeed that “there are a million different entrances and branches” at the hospital so her question wasn’t too shocking.
The Uber driver defended himself when Jennings-Oluwosuko went to get her food by saying “I was just messing around…I come here all the time and I always come into the main entrance.”
Jennings-Oluwosuko thought the driver’s quip was funny even though he was “being a dick.” After posting the unnecessarily sarcastic text to Twitter, it’s clear many agree with her.

Now that Uber has introduced tipping, some questioned whether this action made the driver deserving of one.
When you reallllly don’t want a tip.

Although there’s at least one group that didn’t find the texts very amusing and that’s Uber themselves.
That’s definitely not ok. Please DM us the e-mail address linked to your account and we’ll follow-up ASAP.

Just another case that shows sarcasm may not always go over well through text.
