A Tesco Delivery driver has offended customers with a note he left
Tesco are now urgently investigating the issue
Beth Lloyd, 35, who has Crohn’s disease and arthritis, did not hear the driver knock with her £130 of groceries so the driver took their grocery shopping away with him.
When she called to apologise to the delivery man and explain that it can take time for her to answer the door, he returned to hand over the food shopping.
Her husband heard a note being put through the letterbox, but they did not read it until the following day.
The note read ‘Dear Mr & Mrs Can’t be arsed to go to the shop’
Beth said “My husband was understandably livid. It is hard enough living life with such serious health complications. I can look well and so have faced plenty of ignorant comments about my health when in public — as some people still think unless a person looks ill, or their disability is visibly obvious, there is nothing wrong with them. I have even been verbally attacked for using my disabled parking badge and disabled toilets because ‘I look fine’”
Tesco told The Sun and a spokes person said: “All of our customer delivery assistants undergo a comprehensive training programme to ensure they provide great service on the doorstep so we were concerned to hear about this complaint. We are urgently investigating and will update Mrs Lloyd with our findings.”
I find this offensive as I often get my shopping delivered from Tesco simply because it is easier and cheaper for me to do it this way – it has nothing to do with the fact that I ‘can’t be arsed to go to the shop’
What do you think of this?
