A chef has shared the additional instruction note sneaked onto an Uber Eats food delivery order by a man so he could ‘live a little’ without his girlfriend knowing.
The order was received by a restaurant in Australia from a customer named Aiden, with a line cook sharing a screenshot on Reddit along with the caption: “Possibly the best Uber request I’ve seen.”
It included a vegan burger, costing about £15, that came with a lengthy additional request.
The note reads: “I know this is a little weird for a vegan burger but I’m not actually vegan, my mrs just won’t let me get the beef burger because I slaughter them often and she reckons Imma get heart disease if I keep going.
“But can you pretty please sneak a little cheese on that bad boy so I can live a little. Hope you have an awesome night. Kind regards.”
The post attracted more than 400 comments as some expressed sympathy for Aiden, with one person writing: “My heart goes out to this king.”
A second said: “Homie gets 2 slices and some bacon hidden between em.”
Another wrote: “I just love that the man took the effort to put the cheese emoji in there, even though it didn’t show up in the app.”
A fourth joked: “It’s slightly reminiscent of a hostage letter.”
But others were more concerned for Aiden’s bank account after seeing he had paid $25.90 for a vegan burger, calling the price tag the ‘real crime’.
One said: “$26!! That f***ing vegan burger better come with a couple grams of white truffle,” with another saying: “Honestly the price makes me laugh even more than the comment.”
