Think twice before ordering from food delivery places

Post by Cherokee12 »

This happened in Surrey the other day. My daughter was waiting in her car while the pizza she ordered was being made. A guy parks next to her and gets out of his car with food delivery bag "SKIP THE DISHES" and heads into the laundromat next door. He proceeds inside and empties his dirty laundry out of the food delivery bag . This is beyond disgusting and the thought of food and somebody's dirty laundry going into the same bag is beyond belief.

I thought that olive on my pizza looked kinda funky [icon_lol2.gif]

Meh, might order delivery once a decade. Haven't gotten to the point where I'm that lazy to not go out and grab it myself.

I hope the incident was reported.

They make people who deliver buy these bags and you get to keep them after. With huge turn over, there's a whole lot of people with these bags. I'd imagine if you paid for one you might as well use it for something.

We are 0 for 3 tries at getting our order correct and delivered with that particular organization.

Saw a bag for sale on FB Marketplace recently. They will get repurposed for lots of things.

You should see the inside of the cabs of multi driver trucks that deliver to the grocery stores. Disgusting.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing. Zero cuckery. You and 917 others hate this post.

The restaurant is the one that prepares the order.
Delivery bags are sealed before the driver takes it.

When I was really little there was a company that drove their van to your home, parked outside and did your fried chicken. I thought that was wonderful. Actually still do -

Its been pretty well common sense for the last 50 years that if you use a drive-thru, you always check your order before you pull out. Now people are surprised that your order gets screwed up with delivery services? [icon_lol2.gif]
