- The video of a rider delivering a parcel to the house of a customer located near what appeared to be a highway has gone viral
- While the house where the rider is supposed to deliver the item is only about fifty meters or less from the highway, the path is cut by a deep and wide canal
- There is no bridge or footwalk that connects the highway and the other side, which confounded the rider
- To make matters worse, there is no cellular network signal in the area and as a result, the rider just shouted the name of the customer several times in the hopes of getting his attention

Online shopping riders always have stories to tell and this one went viral after it was uploaded on social media.
The video starts with the Shopee rider talking in the background and sounding perplexed with the location of his customer.
While the house of the customer is only about fifty meters or less from the highway, a deep and wide canal measuring approximately 20 feet from the edge of the road to the other side cuts the path.

“Paano tayo magdi-deliver nyan? Saan ka dadaan nyan? Aruy naman!” the Shopee rider remarked while taking a video of the location.
He started pacing back and forth, directing the camera to the customer’s house near the edge of the other side of the canal, and then panning it back to his location on the highway.
“Pinahirapan pa ako. Andun yung bahay! Saan ka tatawid?” the rider can be heard further talking about his situation.
The Shopee rider again remarked, noting that the canal between the highway and the customer is very deep and wide.
At this point, he started shouting at the top of his lungs in the hopes of attracting the attention of people on the other side.
“Tao po! Shopee! Salvador!” the rider shouted at the top of his lungs, in what might become another online meme.
The rider kept on shouting and all the while chuckling to himself that he might fall down into the deep canal as he continued to walk on its concrete edge.
“Baka malaglag ako dito! Wala talagang daan dito eh, saan sila dadaan dito?” the Shopee rider said.
Finally, he spotted someone on the other side and he asked how to cross the canal.
She pointed him at what appeared to be a location some distance away.
A netizen who is familiar with the area wrote in the comments section that the path that the rider is pointed to is a makeshift bamboo ladder that goes down into the canal and another ladder that goes up to the other side.
This means the rider would still have to cross the water on foot to get to the other ladder.
Online shopping and food delivery riders have become more popular because of the pandemic. They make it possible for customers to continue buying things they need or want without going out of their houses. Shopping in this manner is useful particularly in areas that are under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) where residents are prohibited to go out of their houses. This increased the number of online shoppers, which also gave rise to the demand for more riders. Those who found themselves out of their regular jobs because of the pandemic then found jobs as online shopping and food delivery riders.
Several months ago, a Shopee delivery address also has gone viral due to the unique instructions that it has for the delivery guy. In the address, it stated, "mangkot ka lang kay kilala ko da." It was the owner's son who posted the funny address, which has already been shared more than a thousand times. True enough, the address that he included was very effective, and so he received the package without any problem.
In another viral post, a photo showed money and note clipped to a gate left by a Shopee customer for the delivery guy. The Shopee customer said she had an emergency errand that required her to leave the house. The problem is that her order from Shopee is due to arrive any moment that day. To resolve the issue, the customer decided to just leave a note at the gate along with the money intended for the delivery guy.
