I rarely treat myself to some delicious grub ordered through Eats but I decided to tonight, sushi. As always, I selected Priority and tipped well up front.

Tonight was my first time giving a thumbs down and adjusting a $5 tip to $1. Why?

Paid for priority, watched as my driver then went to McDonald's to the north of the restaurant, waited, and then went even further north to drop that order off. All the while, watching the map recalculate and the delivery estimate increase.

I confronted her, was civil and asked if she delivered a McDonald's order. She said yes. I pointed out that mine was a Priority order and asked if she delivered for another platform, "no".

App glitch? Maybe, but I doubt it.

Folks, remember that the customer is watching. Double dipping may seem like a good idea on the surface, but she probably lost about the same amount as that delivery in my tip and gained a thumbs down.

Just deliver food quickly, no games, and please use a damn delivery bag. It's not rocket science.

Speed is the most important factor for successful food delivery. No one wants to eat cold food.

That was actually a concern when I saw that you reacted
yeah, we have sooooo many reactions to select from these days; so hard to chose. <sigh>

GH has none of that priority stuff. Place your order, and hope for the best. As long as my order is more or less on time I don't complain. Almost all of my orders are done hours in advance, so maybe that helps? Used to use UE, loyal and all that. But either the app or the drivers so can't handle schedule deliveries. They screwed up once too often and that was that. Paid for the GH+ membership and that was that. Sorry Uber? <not really>

I've only ordered through UE and DD, never scheduled.

We've actually had a shortage of delivery drivers lately, I was thrilled to see that my order was picked up by a 98% driver (since October and 420 deliveries, so not really spectacular overall) and I was going to increase my tip as I usually do - typically from 20% to 30% if they aren't awful.

But nope, watched my food take a detour way in the wrong direction.

I was watching a porno when I read this.

Kinda ruined it for me.

Thanks. Ben.
