Let's Talk About Grubhub For a Bit

Good day, my friends!

This week, I want to talk about food. More specifically I want to talk about how much I love being able to order food without having to talk to anyone.

Enter Grubhub!

I don't know whose idea this was, but he or she deserves to be a millionaire. I love that I can order from thousands of restaurants from my fancy gadget without wearing pants.

It's seriously the best: I can pick what I want, add my tip (always tip your drivers!), and pay the bill without going vertical. The only interaction I need to have is when the doorbell rings - no cash or awkward conversation required. And for a guy who doesn't love talking to people, this is the greatest convenience.

The drawback to this being so easy and convenient, though? It hits me quite hard in the bank account. I get it: Grubhub charges restaurants a fee for every order. To combat this, I'm guessing (I've read conflicting reports so I don't want to spread fake news) that each restaurant charges a bit more per online order. So I am well aware that by using this service, I am basically volunteering to spend more money on lunch or dinner to complete the transaction without speaking to anyone.

But that combination of ordering horizontally and not really having to talk to people, well that makes paying more worth it to me. Call me a bum if you must, but I will revel in that while I enjoy my wonderful diner food in my own home. Yeah, technology!

And before I go, I have to give a shoutout to another wonderful company that helps me get things while being pantsless: GoPuff! This is great for small items, but more importantly, for my favorite ice cream in the universe that I cannot find in stores anymore:

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go gain back my lost weight because I have no shame. Until next time, don't do anything I wouldn't do!

Crap open a cold one!
