[OPEN] [CL] NPCs take food ordered by active Sim

[ Edited ]
★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living; Seasons
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Going to food (Vietnamese) stall, haggling for price, and then ordering food.
What happens when the bug occurs? It looks like another Sim comes up and takes my food before it's handed to me. My money is taken, but I don't get my food.
What do you expect to see? My food should be handed to me.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I just installed City Living a few days ago, and twice now I've tried to order food at a food stall (Vietnamese), after I've haggled for a lower price, and another Sim immediately comes up and seems to take my food. I don't get food from the vendor, and the only option is to order more food. But my money has already been taken.

This has happened at vendors, in bars, and in restaurants for my Sims. It's frustrating, because I often play Rags to Riches and am treating my hard working Sim to a rare festival or holiday meal out. The Sim doesn't have Simoleons to waste.

I noticed this at the Romance festival last night. My sim had to order her dinner five times because another sim walked past and collected it before she did. I don’t recall it happening prior to the most recent patch, but my sims don’t eat out often enough for me to be certain it didn’t exist before.

@raemelle This happens to me all the time at cafes:/ I have to watch the barista closely to make sure I pick up my food within seconds of them putting it down.

it happens in my game as well, but it doesn't bother me too much.

There are worse bugs
