What would you do?

There is a wings place in my area that hands out a lot of deliveries.
Yesterday lunch, I went in, waited 15 minutes, 2 minutes at a time, and in the end, apparently, they didn't even give me all the food.
The customer said, that's it? I was expecting more.
I said, I'm sorry, that is all the gave me. You should call in. He said he certainly would.

I started getting suspicious that something would happen.
Yep! Unprofessional conduct, rating went from 100% to 99%.

This place has given me a thumbs down before, as well as a thumbs up.
The owner, depending on his mood, will stand around and chit chat with me, or ignore me completely.

What would you do?

1. Just not accept any more pings from there
2. Accept a ping, go in and let them know that you are never going back, and cancel?
3. Swallow it, shut up, and keep picking up from there.
4. Other?

Why deliver for a restaurant if the restaurant upset you...

I no longer does delivery for Post Mates, McD, Native Grill & Wings, Oreganos Pizza Bistro, Mallow Mushroom, Tempe Pho, La Casa De Juana, and etc.
Because I don't want to cut off my hand to spite my finger?
If I keep blacklisting restaurants, (there are quite a few I don't go to), in the end there won't be any left.
And even if I went to another company, the restaurants would still be the same.

If you get a lot of deliveries from them and only one shitty experience, I'd give them a second chance.
That's my dilemma!!
That's why I've only blacklisted a couple up here. McD's, KFC, and one pub that usually isn't ready for 15-20 minutes after I arrive but always say it's almost ready to keep me from leaving.
You bring up an excellent point! I repeatedly have told them. And not just this restaurnat. All of them. Just tell me it won't be ready for another 10-15 minutes, I'll cancel and someone else will be assigned to the delivery.

Why then do they continue to just lie? Does it somehow count against them if you cancel?
As long as they don't continue botching deliveries and making you wait 15mins for each pickup, then continue to deliver for them. I just saw some of your recent earnings, blacklisting them shouldn't be that impactful if it comes to that.
Thank you YFIGC! The truth is, there are days when I will do 5-6 from them in a day, some of them stacked, and then none for a week or 10 days. Of course, that is an Uber thing.

My worry is that some day I'll have to change hangout because I'll run out of restaurants to pick up from.
