An Uber Eats driver has revealed she disguises herself as a man to feel safer while making night deliveries.
Tia Zakher, from Montreal, took to her TikTok @tiazakher to share a clip of her oversized ensemble.
The delivery driver admitted she takes advantage of ‘male privilege’ by disguising herself as a man while dropping off food at night.
The short clip, which racked up 270,000, was simply captioned: ‘Male privilege.’
She wrote at the beginning of the video: ‘You’re scared to deliver orders at night alone, but you make more money at night, so you dress up as a man.’

The creator donned a gray hoodie, oversized jacket, khaki trousers, and white trainers.
She also showed herself wearing a baseball cap with a hood over it and a mask to hide the bottom half of her face.
While Tia’s ensemble proved convincing, creators advised her on potential improvements.
One person wrote: ‘Baggier pants and strong mens perfume and ur good to go haha’
Another said: ‘Try baggier pants.’ Someone else agreed saying: ‘Just wear more baggy pants for extra accuracy.’
While a fourth said: ‘Try pants that aren’t cuffed at the bottom, I think that will help sell it.’
Some expressed anger and sadness over her need to go to such lengths to feel safe with many saying they have to do the same when walking at night.

It comes after shocking doorbell footage showed the moment a different Uber Eats delivery driver appeared to urinate in the stairwell of a Los Angeles area apartment building.
Many TikTok users confessed they were surprised by her efforts, while others made suggestions about what she should wear
The incident happened Saturday evening in the upscale neighborhood of Beverly Hills, located northwest of downtown LA.
In the video, the unidentified delivery driver drops a bag of food at one door before traveling down the stairs and moving into the corner as he looks around.
The man checks his surroundings before stopping in an off-camera area as the purported sound of urination is heard through the doorbell camera footage.
The video is cut off as the oblivious customer who ordered the food is seen grabbing his order and the delivery driver walks out of the corner and moves down the stairs.
