A Utah man claimed he got sick after realizing he drank a warm cup of urine instead of a milkshake he ordered that was delivered by a GrubHub driver.
“When I started eating my meal upon delivery, I put a straw in my cup that was delivered and took a sip."
However, it didn't take long for him to realize that it was not what he ordered. It was a lot worse.
“I soon discovered that the cup delivered to me from the GrubHub driver was a warm cup of urine," he recalled.

People were getting the dry-heaves over the mix-up.
The transaction between Wood and the driver was caught on his home surveillance camera, which was shared with the news outlet.
He also captured footage of himself confronting the driver on his smartphone after he called him back to the house.
Wood asked the driver while holding the styrofoam cup:
“Did you confuse the cups, 'cause, like, dude—it’s half full of pee."
“Do you realize this is pee?”
The driver claimed he got confused between the two styrofoam cups in his car and accidentally gave Wood the wrong one containing his urine.
The driver explained that he works long shifts without a break and often pees on the go as a result.
Social media users were suspicious of the driver's explanation.
Wood said drinking the urine made him sick.
When he tried contacting GrubHub about the incident, Wood said it took them four days to get back to him.
The Chicago-based company offered Wood a partial refund for his troubles.
“They refunded like $18, the actual cost of the food,” he said, adding:
“They didn’t refund the delivery fee or the tip that I gave.”
ABC4 reached out to GrubHub who issued the following statement.
“We took immediate action with the driver and ended his contract with us."
“We’re following up with the customer to apologize and are coaching the representative who was previously in touch with the customer.”
Note to self: always thoroughly check your food and drink upon delivery before consuming...
