Mum enraged as delivery driver tells daughter to ‘smile’ while taking photos of her
A shopper has been left disgusted after a delivery driver reportedly took photos of her teenage daughter while telling her to “smile” for the camera.
The mum claims the Evri driver also told her daughter to “show me some teeth” while taking proof of delivery pictures.
The allegations were shared on Mumsnet, in a post written by the concerned parent.
She explained she had been out at the time of the delivery, and while she had no issue with photos taken to show the parcel had been delivered, she feared the driver may have taken more than one picture.
Her post read: ” After taking the proof of delivery photo (which was emailed to me) he then turned his camera up on my daughter and took two photographs of her, the first time saying ‘smile’ and the second ‘show me some teeth’.
“My daughter was caught by surprise and kind of just stood there while he did this and he then walked off. I have emailed a complaint to Evri but am now wondering if I overreacted or if this is actually as bad as I think it is.
“She had been out enjoying the sun so was only wearing a little skort and cropped top at the time.”
The mum added that she had been emailed a proof of delivery photo, which showed her daughter’s feet and the parcel.
“It’s the two photos he took after that that have concerned me.
” To be honest it has really freaked me out. This is a guy who now has her photos and our address!”
The woman said her daughter was also “really stressed” as a result of the incident.
Several fellow parents agreed that the driver’s behaviour was inappropriate.
One person wrote: “How awful for your daughter. This was not appropriate in any way.”
Another said: “That’s just not right. I wouldn’t be happy. Not because anything untoward will happen to your daughter, but just because it’s presumptuous and overstepping boundaries.”
Someone also suggested the driver had perhaps been “messing about”, but added: “The guy needs to be re-educated on what’s appropriate at the very least.”
A spokesperson for Evri said: “We have not received any contact about this matter and would urge this person to get in touch asap. We take any allegations of this kind extremely seriously and will investigate immediately once we have the details.”
