Food Delivery Rider Takes Lift With Cockroach, Jumps Onto Railings To Avoid Pest

Food Delivery Rider Takes Lift With Cockroach While Delivering Order

There is not quite a job out there like a food delivery rider’s — having to brave the elements and, at times, deal with annoying requests from customers and eateries.

A delivery rider even had to face his fears when he shared a lift with his nemesis — a cockroach.

In a TikTok video, the delivery rider dramatically jumped onto the lift’s railings to avoid the pest.

He did so skillfully, holding a customer’s order with one hand while filming the insect’s movements with the other.

While we all know someone deathly afraid of cockroaches, it’s still a funny sight when we see someone react so adversely to the pest.

That’s what makes the 28-second TikTok video such a fun watch.

Captioned simply with, “let me work in peace”, the video starts with the cockroach seemingly circling the delivery rider.

The rider, in an expletive-filled monologue in Malay, warned the cockroach not to “act up”.

However, the insect clearly did not heed his advice and moved closer to the delivery rider.

Getting too close for comfort, the rider jumped on the railings inside the lift to elevate himself off the ground and away from the cockroach.

Still feeling apprehensive, he pointed the camera at the cockroach as the insect ran rounds around the lift.

The second the lift got to its destination and opened its doors, the delivery rider bolted out, leaving the cockroach and food order unscathed.

The TikTok community spared no expense in laughing at the delivery rider’s demise.

A netizen commented, “I thought u levitated LMAO” noting how swiftly the man jumped on the railings.
