A TikToker with the username “just_amethyst7” has gone viral for disabling a machine at her work that notifies her of incoming mobile orders.
In a video uploaded to the platform by just_amethyst7 earlier this month, she can be seen working at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Massachusetts before suddenly turning off the device that notifies her of mobile orders.
“If you turn off the machine for the go [because] They’re busy enough without those stupid mobile orders coming in,” the worker says in her video, before turning off the camera.

The video features the popular “If That Makes Me a Bad Guy” sound from the HBO hit series Euphoria.
TikTok reacts to the viral clip
The video currently has just over 50,000 views and has sparked a massive debate in the TikTok community, leading to an overflow of responses.
“[My] Manager got rid of our tablets [because] I kept turning them off when I was busy during the night shift (alone, btw),” said one user, siding with the worker.
“You can go to another store, sorry,” said another user.
While most supported just_amethyst7’s decision, some disagreed.

“[No] because I keep coming and ordering the same thing from the speaker,” said another person.
According to one of the account’s followers, she may not have turned off the device at all, after the commenter pointed out that she appeared to have turned the volume down and not turned off the device completely.
according to a report As published by Business Insider, 8% of Dunkin’s transactions in 2020 came from mobile orders, which accounts for a large chunk of the company’s revenue — considering the company is worth over $10 billion.
