Anyone with a front door that opens OUT knows about this issue.  But it’s been more common during the pandemic:  Someone posted a TikTok video after their DoorDash driver trapped them in their house . . . by placing their order way too close to their door.

They ordered some breakfast with an iced coffee, and the driver left it six inches in front of their door.  So if they opened the door, the coffee would spill.

It’s not clear how they eventually dealt with it.  In the video comments, the person said their place doesn’t have a backdoor.  So they probably had to sacrifice the coffee and spill it, or climb out a window.
