Here's what people had to say:

An individual wrote, "Bro, you are in food services, and people order food when it is absolutely necessary. If you actually care about your employees, you would be posting, 'Our services are unavailable during peak afternoon hours.'"

A second said, "Close down the services between 12 to 4. Its okay to be human sometimes before profits. Yeah we won't order, but still closure from you will do more good."

"I mean, I can understand the sentiment, but it may not be possible for some people, especially for those who rely on food ordering a lot and those who are unable to cook. Ultimately, it should be the customer who tips and/or offers water/food. It comes down to the matter of the heart," commented a third.

A fourth added, "I was thinking the same thing today, then decided to eat Maggi instead of ordering online."

"I hope you consider doubling delivery charges during peak hours or suspending services altogether. Either way, prioritising your riders well-being is what you are talking about. Or you can mandate a minimum tip!" shared a fifth.
