Instacart Shopper Out $1000 After Accepting A $60 Costco Order Over 20 Miles Away, Then Falls And Breaks Her Phone

The rise of online grocery shopping has revolutionized the way we obtain our everyday essentials. With the convenience of apps like Instacart, customers can have groceries delivered right to their doorstep. However, behind the seamless experience lies a group of unsung heroes—the Instacart shoppers—who navigate a world filled with challenges, frustrations, and moments of unexpected hilarity.

Recently, one Instacart shopped shared a harrowing story of a delivery gone awry. TikToker @jessicahiggs3 shared a now viral video explaining her situation.

“I just took an Instacart order that ultimately costed [sic] me $1,000…”

“A lot of people wouldn’t have taken this but I have two kids’ birthdays coming up and I want to go on vacation with them to the beach so I’m hustling my money. I just need the money.”

“I go up to deliver and I slip and fall. And my phone is in my back pocket. My butt and back are killing me. I’m pretty sure I’m bruised all the way up and my phone is shattered. Now I’m soaking wet, my back and butt is bruised, and I’m out $1,000 on my phone.”
