The customer, Exavier Pope, took to Twitter to share screenshots of his conversation with his driver. “This Uber Eats Driver just asked me to CashApp him gas money to bring my food to me,” Pope tweeted on May 31.

In the screenshot, the driver said to Pope, “I’m gonna run outta gas, can you cash app me a few bucks for gas please, I had no idea u were that far.”

In a follow-up tweet, the customer wrote that the driver had called him five times, saying it was “harassment.”

Their message conversation continued, with Pope calling the driver “unprofessional” and the driver apologizing.

Pope then threatened to call the police.

It appears that the driver ended up leaving the food, though Pope noted it was, “left it on the ground outside like trash.”

Uber replied to Pope’s thread, and in response, he called the incident a “harrowing experience.”
