A stunned DoorDash customer received more than he bargained for recently when he found an unwanted side of marijuana in his bag.
We've heard plenty of instances of people ordering extra food when they're high, but this guy was sober and was left pretty 'scared' from the whole incident.
According to the customer, who spoke to ABC 6 but wished to remain anonymous, he found the unwanted hash at the bottom of his bag next to a plastic fork when he placed a DoorDash delivery on 9 August.
Speaking of the incident, the man said: "I was scared at first but then again, I wasn’t very surprised."
What's more is that the driver later returned to the man's home and asked for the unwanted side back.
"He would give me my money back and refund me my order if I gave him my entire bag back, cause he claimed that it was medicine in the bag for his friend that was to be used for medical reasons," the man said.
However, the man didn't give him back the supposed 'medical' side and instead, called the police and submitted a complaint to DoorDash.
The unwitting customer went on to ask: "Did this start with the driver? Or did this start in the restaurant that I ordered this from?"
"I even have a close friend whose nephew actually passed away due to smoking some marijuana that was laced by fentanyl."
And so, when he received the unwanted side of marijuana, all he could think about were the kids in his life: "I have a nephew. I think about my coworker. He has granddaughters and grandsons."
The incident left the man wondering whether to bother ordering food deliveries now, saying 'I question everything now.'
"I just want to question what kind of background checks they’re taking for their employees. And do they really know the people who are working for them, because I mean clearly, this one fell through the cracks."
While Columbus police are still investigating the incident, DoorDash has responded to the man's complaint.
The company emailed the man to say: "We do not condone this type of action and have therefore taken the step in removing them from our platform.
"This Dasher will no longer be able to deliver future orders on DoorDash."
