Dunzo responds to delivery boy Swiggy’s ‘outsourcing skills’ in Bengaluru | Bengaluru

Dunzo and Swiggy have responded to the delivery partner’s decision to outsource a coffee order simply because he was feeling lazy.

This is a perfect example of Peak Bengaluru!

The internet has gone mad after the story of a “lazy” Swiggy delivery man outsourcing his delivery order for a Cafe Coffee Day coffee to Dunzo, another delivery service, went viral.

Dunzo responded to the viral story by tweeting, “In the @peakbengaluru metaverse of madness, the Bichoo gang and the Eagle gang work together. Hum bhi hain Joshi mein, delivery karein hosh mein, yun na aankhei dikha…Saailaaroo, saailaare! What are you saying @swiggy_in :)”

When someone responded to Dunzo’s witty response, in which he cited Shah Rukh Khan’s ’90s hit song in response to the story, saying, “Someone who might have experience with the account,” Dunzo responded again.

“Lowkey wants Goyal top of the lungs – Apun bola tu mera thaila – and give you our delivery bag.” OOnly the Dunzo Account Manager can explain this tweet.

Swiggy wasn’t afraid to talk about the story either, and reached out to Dunzo for comment. But didn’t speak up after Dunzo’s witty reply.

Ronnie Screwvala praised his outsourcing skills by tweeting, “Outsourcing at its best! Just heard that a Swiggy delivery partner in Bangalore has booked Dunzo to deliver their order. The delegation skills of the Swiggy delivery partner are outstanding.”

According to Shubhansh Shukla, it was a perfect example of “DI in Angular when services use a service”.

Madhur Chadha believes the Swiggy boy may have outsourced the job to himself and was paid by Swiggy and achieved his incentive goal at Dunzo
