Food Delivery Website GoWaiter Promises to Bring You Food Even During Hurricane Isaac
Local website food delivery service GoWaiter has sent out this email ad to customers claiming they’ll deliver food even when Isaac hits the SBC, going so far to offer a coupon for $3 dollars off. “Batten down your hatches and keep indoors,” reads the ad. “GoWaiter will brave the storm to make sure you’re fed.”
Some folks might say what GoWaiter is doing is in bad taste. Personally, I think it’s pretty cool that there’s a service like this in town. Friends who have worked in pizza delivery have told me that they get busier when it rains, so it’s win/win.
Imagine with me if you will, tomorrow evening … what if I get a Monjuni’s craving and NEED an order of shrimp toast while Isaac is spitting water all over Shreveport Bossier City. The roads would be flooded, the debris, and the insanity of people driving terribly. I would thank the good Lord for the GoWaiter driver who would arrive at my apartment complex, run up the stairs in a torrential downpour. While carrying my hot delicious snack.
I’d open my door to pay that good employee, then suddenly notice with a look of disappointment, “Did you forget the extra sauce? I hope you make it back before this gets cold.”
I kid — I would feel completely awkward if that happened. I’d pay and tip them extra and wish them safe travels. Then look in my kitchen for a spare can of $1 spaghetti sauce that I bought 2 years ago.
