A man claims to have been left in a state of disbelief after checking CCTV, only to find that the Uber driver who was meant to deliver his takeaway had taken off with his burrito
There’s nothing quite like snuggling up and getting cosy at home, waiting for your favourite takeaway to arrive, and it’s always so frustrating when something goes wrong.
Unfortunately, one man was recently in for a nasty shock following an alleged incident involving a stolen burrito.
The man, whose name is Robbie, claims that an Uber Eats delivery driver took off with his burrito, with the theft caught on CCTV.
The occurrence allegedly took place on the evening of April 28, at an unknown location.
CCTV footage shows the unnamed driver dropping the food parcel at the front door, before stepping back and snapping a pic.
The driver then picks up the exact same bag, said to contain the burrito, and appears to head off into the night.

Taking to TikTok, Robbie uploaded part of the CCTV footage, plus a clip of himself clapping a startled hand across his mouth in disbelief.
Robbie, who goes by the username @rxbbiel, wrote: “You wouldn’t believe what happened to my Uber Eats.”
He continued: “When they say your Uber Eats is delivered. B**** stole my burrito”.
The incredulous burrito fan even went as far as to tag the official Uber Eats TikTok account in his post, telling them it was “your move next”.
A number of Robbie’s followers have been left astounded by the driver’s audacity, with some demanding “#justiceforburrito”.
One person declared it to be the “ultimate betrayal”, while another remarked that “this is what loss feels like”.
A third person wrote: “This is actually a huge fear for me. Which is why I’m already at the door waiting for my food. You’re not taking a picture and taking my food”.
It’s unclear at the time of writing whether Robbie was able to get a full refund, with a number of followers calling for him to get free burritos for a month.
