Most of the time I get the contactless delivery but sometimes they'll wait to make sure i get the food. I do appreciate it. I guess I'm being silly but does anyone else do this?
I feel bad after I do it but I almost always do it if it's a guy.
In the country I live in, we’re still allowed to have family in the delivery room. I am European and my husband is American... after we got married he moved here with me and his parents decided to retire here as well.
I’ll start off by giving a brief backstory. I (31F) am >8 months pregnant with my husband’s (33M) baby. I’m due in less than 3 weeks, and only recently did my husband tell me my in-laws would be in the delivery room with us during labour. He didn’t ask me if they could be in the delivery room, he stated they would be.
I feel uncomfortable around his family, mind you, my husband knows this. For example, when my husband—then fiancé—and I set a date for our wedding, his mother invited me, and only me, to her house to talk with her.
After a number of issues, we had finally zeroed in on a date and location, making a deposit on the venue when my in-laws call me to their home and say the wedding cannot happen on that date. I was told their daughter was pregnant and if... keep reading on reddit ➡
If you order delivery after dark often, it would also be a good idea to make sure your address numbers are illuminated and can easily be seen from the street.
Had one of my drivers twist her foot pretty good today on someone's porch.
Earlier this year I (30m) had a strong moment of clarity and realised I ordered too much food delivery. I didn't really know how often I ordered*, but I just knew it was too much and I needed to break the cycle. It's really easy to order food delivery where I live, and pretty cheap too, so the threshold is really low. I just order through an app, delivery times are usually somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes, and more times than not there are no delivery costs (and if there are, it's just 1 or 2 euro).
Obviously it wasn't just how often I ordered, but the type and amount of food too. Most of the time it was pizza with meat toppings, or pita bread with shawarma. My favourite -and probably the biggest calorie bomb ever- is the 'kapsalon' (it literally means: hairdressing salon, because it was invented by a hairdresser in Rotterdam). It's a layer of fries, shawarma or doner kebab and cheese, that got put in the oven for a bit, so the cheese melts on top of the rest; then a layer of some... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I F(23) got home from a long day at work last night and it was freaking WARM man, I'm from the UK and we don't like it over 20 degrees Centigrade, it was nearly 30, so I strip off to my birthday suit and I'm chilling in the living room, my Fiance (23M) texts me telling me he's on his way home from a poker game with his friends, about 15 minutes later there's a knock at the door, I think my fiance must have forgot his keys so I go to the front door and swing it open standing there full frontal shouting "hello baby!" ... Twas not my fiance.. twas an innocent unsuspecting young pizza delivery boy... Poor kid says "sorry.. wrong house" and practically sprinted down the allyway that leads to my door.. I. Was. Mortified.
About 5 minutes later my fiance walks through the door, I'm sat on the sofa in a ball of embarrassment, told him about the delivery guy.. he absolutley falls down laughing and says "if I was that kid I think I'd have given you the pizza regardless"
TLDR: flashed a po... keep reading on reddit ➡
I deliver pizza and I’d been having a really busy night, non-stop back and forth, without any time to even pause and take a leak.
I’d been so busy that I wasn’t really thinking about bathroom breaks. But we’re also going through a bit of a heat wave in our area, so I’ve been drinking copious amounts of water.
All of a sudden as I was driving to this particular delivery, the urge to go hit me. Like, things went from 0 to 60 in an instant. Thankfully I was close to the customer so could get this one over with quickly. Or so I thought.
I pulled up to the house, and it was an area I’d delivered in before, so I could immediately see that something wasn’t right. All the lights were off in the house, not even the glow of a television or anything. It was extra apparent because the streetlight closest to the door happened to be out of order. And on top of it all, the block was dead quiet.
This is a big university area, and obviously there aren’t many student renters in July, but there h... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve been working at a major pizza chain this summer and caught on pretty quick, got along with management well, and got promoted to an assistant manager position recently. The store is a pretty male-dominated space, and many of the drivers are middle-aged men while I am a female college student. Overall my shifts run pretty smoothly with everyone working as a team, but tonight for the second time in a month, I lost a driver mid-shift.
The first time I lost a driver mid-shift, I was repeating what the head delivery driver had confirmed with me about which delivery to send this driver, based on location, age of the order, etc. It was all very intuitive, but the driver debated me for awhile until he caved in, took the order, clocked out without notice, and I later found out that he had quit because I had told him to take one delivery when he wanted to take another.
Today’s incident was even more immature. I was dealing with a customer and the driver was walking around without a m... keep reading on reddit ➡
A lot of the time, I’m just craving a soda or dessert and I wind up ordering all this other food to make the delivery “worth it”. Its gotten SO bad. I’m honestly scared. I don’t even like the food I get half the time and I’m horrified at the amount of money I’ve spent on this addiction. I added it up once and it was almost as much as I pay for rent!
I know I need to take it one day at a time. I’m just taking it hour by hour at this point. Yesterday I stayed under my 1700 calories. Today I will finish under my calories too. I’m drinking lots of water and tea to try and take my mind off of it. Sugar and delivery addiction are a real thing!
I’m just sharing my little victory and looking for some support. I don’t have any friends, I’m single, and this isn’t something I can really talk to my parents about. I’m hoping I can find some support from like minded individuals here.
Edit: I am so grateful for all the support I’ve received here!! Thank you all so much for your support, encourag... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm basically a 30 year old college freshman without my meds.
*actually yesterday into today. What's time anyway?
I may be in the minority, but I don't care. Don't you EVER apologize if your puppy sneaks by you and starts sniffing me while you're signing for things. I will often get crap tips, and your little fur ball will always make my day better. Papa bless. Edit. Thanks for the gold, kind stranger! Edit 2. I got to put a very good golden retriever boi tonight.
Yeah, they're fucked and by extension so could we.
Huge groups of kids, not a hint of any protective measures. I went into a few restaurants to pick up, nobody inside is even pretending to care.
I hate to be the "old man shaking crane at sky" but it's quite frustrating. The growth of the virus in BoCo has been more or less steady since May - allowing us to inch towards normal.
The news makes mention of a superspreader causing outbreaks, these students could create dozens of superspreaders if they go about town. I'll be pissed if this results in returning lockdowns.
I get it, I feel awful for kids having their college experience ruined by this pandemic, but a lot of us are having things ruined. It's just pure selfishness to ignore the guidelines so that you can have fun, potentially at the expense at the rest of us.
Be better buffs...
here is my original post 2 (?) weeks ago. This one might be full of typos as I'm posting this quick as I've got a sick kid.
So we've been fortunate enough that MIL seems to have gotten the message and hasn't contacted us since SO went to her place to get the ashes back. My SO spoke with his Dad (FIL) who said that she claimed she's giving us the space we need and seems to think we'll get over it eventually but I think I'm even more angry at her now I've had the time to be less upset by it, now I'm just pissed.
This morning we had a delivery, addressed to me - didn't know what it could be, not ordered anything at all recently but figured I ordered something in my sleep deprived state at 3am. Wouldn't be the first time.
But no, it was a box with a little black fabric bag and inside was a locket, that has ashes in. Connecting the dots it was pretty clear straight away who the ashes belonged to and who the l... keep reading on reddit ➡
Most reading this have probably read about the situation. The new Post Master General is intentionally curtailing mail delivery across the US. In some places in the US, mail is stacking up in regional sorting plants. Some urban areas in the US are experiencing extra delays ranging from days to even weeks.
A roaster where I buy coffee might have been hit by its sorting plant experiencing a backlog. Over last six months, all my orders from it have taken 2 to 3 mail days for delivery. Just a few weeks ago for example, it shipped a coffee to me on a Friday and I got it that Monday. I placed an order recently and its tracking is in limbo. I talked to the shipping person at the roaster and she told me my order's tracking and some other recent orders' trackings are strange, like they went into a blackhole with the next normal leg of the tracking not showing.
If this problem grows, roasters, who sell mail-order, will probably have to go to more expensive delivery such as UPS and Fedex... keep reading on reddit ➡

I have a family, and I have a job. I work between 8 and 10 hours a day. When I get home, I have to shower, help with household chores, and spend time with my family. As such, my time is very valuable to me.
One of the grocery stores in my area offers delivery. For a long time I didn’t use it, because I assumed it would be expensive. But around last January I got a cold. Between being sick and going to work, I was too run down to do much of anything. My wife doesn’t drive, so going to the grocery store involved me whether I wanted it to or not. One afternoon, I got home from work and I sat at the kitchen table after I got my gear off. I just needed a bit to collect myself before I jumped into the shower. It was a Thursday, and the local store flyers had come in the mail. I pulled the flyer for our preferred store and started leafing thru it.
One of the sections mentioned a discount for using the delivery service if you used a special code. So, later on I got onto my desktop and wen... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have been a delivery driver for amazon since the beginning on 2020. I recently (7/16) tested positive for covid and am now in full quarantine, yet my boss is charging me AWOL for not coming into work. I have provided him the test results and even contacted my doctor who verified it and forward the message to him and still says that im able to work.
I deliver between 150-200 packages daily, 5 days a week within 60-70 miles from our station. That's potentially 1000+ people i could effect in one week just by BEING in the van with the packages. I have absolutely no idea where he is getting this idea for me to risk other peoples lives just for him to profit more.
EDIT: Wake up and see this has blow up. Thank you all for your comments but its going to take some time for me to respond.

First time posting here, I feel like I am justified but everybody else says no, so please tell me why not if that's the case.
I work in a warehouse and 1 of my job is to drive the forklift vehicle to unload and load them to trucks and warehouse spaces. My lunch hour is 1pm-2pm, and there is a rule to truck drivers that says "do not deliver during lunch hours(12pm-2pm)". However, nobody really bother with that and half of all days I have delivery trucks coming while I am eating lunch, and I had to get up and unload. I cannot extend my lunch hours as I need to sign out and back in at 1pm and 2pm and should be working whenever I am signed in.
Many times I reminded the drivers that we don't do loading and unloading during lunch hours and they still keep coming during lunch hours, disrupting my break time. I complained it to my supervisor and all she told me is to warn them that we have the right to turn them away.
So I turned the delivery trucks away today when I got so fed up and very... keep reading on reddit ➡
