In a tweet, Enzo Caasi shared his frustration after a buyer ordered 10 pieces of chocolate croissant and 24 pieces of cream puff from him, but eventually canceled.

“Wag niyo naman lokohin yung mga tao na nagsisimula pa lang sa small business! Wala kayong alam kung gaano kahirap ‘tong pinagdadaanan namin (Please do not fool small business owners. You have no idea how difficult it is for us),” Caasi wrote.

Caasi said his buyer canceled the day he was supposed to deliver the pastries.

“Sana naman po maisip niyo sa kokote niyo na hindi madali mag-bake. Late po ako natutulog para makapag-[prepare] lang kasi iisa lang refrigirator namin which is pang buong family pa. I don’t have enough space para ilagay mga stock ko, so I have to do it before the day of the delivery. Tapos maaga po ako gigising para ma-bake yung mga pastries para fresh (Baking is not easy. I sleep late to prepare because I only have one refrigerator which I share with my whole family. I don’t have enough space for my stocks, so I have to do it before the day of the delivery. Then I have to wake up early to bake the pastries so they would still be fresh),” he added.

After his tweet went viral, Caasi told the Manila Bulletin that a stranger bought all his extra stocks. 

Some netizens also asked him to ask for a downpayment first before confirming orders.

In June last year, AKO Bicol Party-list Rep. Alfredo Garbin filed a measure seeking to penalize the cancelation of food and grocery delivery orders that have already been paid in advance by delivery riders.

Garbin said the proposal aims to provide protection to individuals engaged in the food and grocery delivery services such as GrabFood, LalaFood, and Food Panda.

It also covers instances wherein customers order food and grocery for the purpose of prank or those who have no “genuine intention” of availing of the service which causes damages and undue duress to the delivery riders and service providers.
