Food delivery drivers: I know you have a hard job. I know the people who order are dicks, and the companies you work for are cheap, skinflint bastards. But don’t take your shit out on me. You know why we don’t prioritize your food orders and have them ready when you arrive? It’s because your company refuses to update our menus or hours. This means your customers want food that I can’t make, and we frequently don’t have the ability to contact the customer to let them know. Secondly, if I’ve got a line of real customers, I could give fuck-all about your wait. Those guys will tip me, you won’t, and the owner doesn’t make much on any of your orders because your company doesn’t pay full price, or even on time. You are the last priority. The gig economy is fucked, and I don’t feel bad for not supporting it. The sooner it dies, the better off all workers will be.—Anonymous
