International Joke Day is just around the corner so to celebrate we asked a bunch of Deliveroo riders to recount their funniest delivery stories.

Whilst most deliveries go off without a hitch, there are some Deliveroo tales that are almost impossible to believe. For the first time ever, Deliveroo’s Australian delivery riders have compiled their weirdest, wackiest and funniest moments to mark International Joke Day on Monday (July 1st).

With millions of customers across Australia, it’s no surprise that the occasional misadventure or bizarre interaction happens on the nation’s doorsteps. If you’ve ever accidentally opened the door naked to a rider you are about to feel a whole lot better.

Here are some of the funniest stories we’ve heard from Aussie Deliveroo delivery riders!

6Spider… woman?

“I once had a customer plead for help in the notes section of her order. She had DM’d our Twitter to explain that she was trapped on her balcony while a spider terrorised her home. I was happy to help but unfortunately I was also terrified of spiders – but I didn’t let on. I delivered the food and carefully relocated the spider back outside whilst she tucked into her dinner.  All in a day’s work!” Joe, Sydney
