A customer who ordered a food tray from a food vendor was far from satisfied with the food delivered to her and she took to Twitter to call out the vendor while revealing what she ordered and what was delivered. The dissatisfied customer said she ordered a food tray worth 30,000 Naira for a client and paid in full days prior to delivery. However, when it was delivered, the food didn’t look as attractive as what was in the photo sent. Also, some things advertised to be present on the food tray in the photo sent were not included in the delivery made. The customer’s sister also joined in calling out the food vendor and asked for a refund. See below.
