  • Got a fucking door dash ad on this

  • I just started working for DoorDash and it is super frustrating at times and they don't tell me when I go to KFC that they are out of chicken fillet and I wasted 30 min of my life...

  • I live in Rwanda, and we have so many cheap delivery options it is insane. You pay basically a flat rate of $1 or $2 for anything you order, including food, groceries, electronics, etc. It's because everything is delivered by motorcycle taxis which are much cheaper to operate. A lot of countries that have lots of motorcycles/scooters/bicycles have the same benefits. Americans are missing out!

  • sawarasenai🥰kimi😸wa⛓shojo👻na💅no ✨bökù🌸wâ🧚ÿariçhiñ🤴bįcchī😾ńo😩osû🚣dà🎉yo💦

  • I don't know how he manages to make me look forward to the ad reads. Like, wtf?

  • here in my small city in sweden i can get 2 pizzas delivered for roughly $20. the delivery services here are just a storefront to host for the resturants and every resturant have thier own drivers. and it seems to be working quite well. and keep in mind, we dont do tipping in sweden. AT ALL! its super rare, and i mean finding a wallet on the street rare.

  • Yeah but like I'm too lazy to go anywhere or god forbid make food

  • Ad for deliveroo plays hmmm

  • The REAL reason uber eats take so long is uber eats people SMOKE IN A CAR WITH THE FOOD nice i have asthma and ocd and smoke smells makes me puke i cant eat it now! oh yeah waited for 2 hours! for a thing that was 31 minutes.

  • I started driving door Dash a few weeks ago as a part-time gig. I have another full-time job but I had a lot of free time and so I want to be more productive. I used to drive pizza delivery for a couple years so I love that type of work. I find it to be really fun and fulfilling. The drivers are able to decline bad orders and only take the ones they want. Overall, I see myself doing door Dash in the future.

  • Door dash slaps with dash pass

  • And I get an ad for.....

  • Im from Louisiana and we have a service in the south called Waitr. There used to be a gourmet hotdog place downtown but it was very pricey and i would waitr one hot dog and fries for around $20 not including a cash tip. And thought it was a good idea.

  • Gets a grubhub ad right before this

  • Zomato

  • I always say I’m going to “Waitr” things, because in college I always used Favor and Waitr which seem to be almost Texas exclusive. But I always use Grubhub now that I’m back in Chicago.

  • everyone says doordash as a verb btw

  • as a doordash driver I really like it

    • actually love it and doordash always answers right away and pays half when they fuck up

  • I use the verb "my parents don't want to pay for extra service charges so they go pick up the food instead"

  • I've tried Ubereats 3 times and its never been a good experience and i just feel like I'm exploiting the drivers if i dont tip big. so all the sudden im paying 50$ for something that cost 12ish its just not worth it.

  • This is why I literally never tip anyone unless I'm too lazy to take change.

    • @Victor Lindvall so may I ask a question?

    • @An enemy stand Yes it's simple. I live in Sweden.

    • @Victor Lindvall so can you explain to me the well developed social security nets your country possess that actually care for workers?

    • @An enemy stand worth noting that I don’t live in a third world country where you’re supposed to tip

    • You should definitely tip. These people are not paid a liveable wage. Yes its shitty companies expect you to pay for their workers but atleast then they have a better chance of actually getting something worth shit for their work

  • 0:00 Hey guy

  • i keep kosher and ngl 19 bucks for his order + delivery sounds like heaven. 19 bucks at a kosher restaurant will get you a single pizza pie but only if you order it to go and don't look the cashier in the eye

  • The lazification of the common man

  • not me getting a doordash ad before the video played

  • I ordered some orange chicken from NY Chinese and the total was 17$

  • I’d rather get my own food. What if the driver has grubby hands? Or they breathe on my food? No fuckin thank you

  • The only time I order food delivered is if it’s going to be delivered by an employee from the restaurant. I refuse to use any of these food delivery services.

  • Cyberpunk man. Cyberpunk.

  • i ubereated food, that’s deadass what i say

  • As someone who works in food service, these apps fucking suck. Whenever there is an error we have no way to contact the customer or the driver so the order just gets lost in the abyss and then we get called with complaints.

  • Delivery apps don't ask restaurants. Doordash would send drivers to the restaurant I worked at when we didn't do takeout in general. The drivers would stand there awestruck at the idea that a pretty expensive restaurant didn't want to be undercut by a monster company that forces its way into their business. Fuck delivery apps.

  • This might be fucked up but I purposely mess up making ice cream orders where I work so people will stop ordering from us via delivery service app

  • i actually saved like 38% on my dinner tonight because I went directly through the restaurants website- who needs promo codes when you can save money while directly supporting your local business establishments :)))

  • uber eats for sure

  • I'm in shock there's no pinned comment

  • I actually do use Grubhub

  • I just say I ordered McDonald’s/whatever

  • grubhub perks give you deals on the food you love

  • uhhh the bigger delivery apps probably "loose" money because they are expanding so quickly. that quite a common theme along those new tech companies: amazon lost money for like a decade, uber is still losing money, airbnb lost money for quite a while. they are all basically buying market power with their losses

  • Maybe this is a chance for Gojek to come in

  • Uber has since gotten rid of the small cart fee completely but the fact that they felt it was okay to take the money for so many years is ridiculous

  • Pretty sure I canceled my dash pass a few months ago only to see a subscription charge on my bank account. I was so confused....

  • I got a survery about delivery apps before this video

  • I was about to say how glad I am that my work stopped working with doordash, but I was just fired/quit today so FUCK EM ALL IM GETTIN DRUNK

  • Fuck door dash. They’re ruining my favorite businesses.

  • Whenever I ordered from this taco place I love from Postmates my order was ALWAYS wrong. If I went to the place myself the order was right. I stopped using Postmates and will never again

  • On Christmas, doordash didn't even know which places were closed, so I didn't even know a place was closed till I got there and the customer had already told me to leave it on his porch, luckily I still get half of what I normally get if I take a picture of the store being closed but it probably cost more gas to get there than what I actually made. I didn't even know i could get half pay if the store was closed until a dasher told me about it.

  • Literally the only delivery app I use is domino's app because I've had a problem like once out of the hundred times I've used it and they gave me a free pizza.

  • all these apps are a biginnings to the huge automation of the future so theyre jumpstarting it to make sure it works anyone who made an original service will charge more then come competitors that achieve better prices then better conditions for work

  • One time we got calls asking why DoorDash had such a long wait time. There was a visible tornado funnel. I turned the DoorDash tablet off so I could get all my employees in the bathroom and away from the front of the store which is 90% glass. Also no sane person is going to be driving for DoorDash during a tornado. Make your own goddamn food.

  • This is what you get when you live in a country where economic development is more of a priority than welfare of the people

  • Unless they find a way to cut costs somehow, I can't see this type of business model succeeding

  • The monopoly scenario you're describing isn't something that has ever happened in the market. If someone tries to eliminate their competition to raise their prices, more competition emerges to undercut them. Prices being hiked up isn't a realistic problem, the problem is prices being so low that only these giant companies can afford to play in the market and all the smaller businesses get crushed underneath them. There's zero chance of a monopoly, but there's a real issue with the oligopoly.

  • yeah so i order from doordash and grubhub alot and ill tell you why they are losing money. their drivers stealing the food. I order there about 5-6 times a week (I know its bad but i work 14 hr days, get off me) and im my 5-6 times a week i have my order stolen by the driver about 1-2 times per week. meaning 1/3 of my orders are just being picked up by the driver and the driver drives home and says 'delivered' and eats my food. you can watch them drive and ive seen someone pull up to my address and i look outside and see them in their car and i walk out and right as i open my door they drive off and when i look back at my computer it says 'delivered' even though it wasnt. of course i always file a complaint and they have always refunded my money but in that is the problem. 1/3 orders is being taken so grubhub is basically losing money by me ordering from them. They REALLY REALLY need a way to track the drivers or write them up or something. Take it out of their pay is what i say. figure out a way that when the food is delivered the person who receives the food has to mark something as delivered or whatever before the driver can leave idk idgaf. All i know is drivers keep stealing my food. its become such a problem that every time i order i immediately call the restaurant and tell them that when the driver arrives to let them know that the customer is tracking the order and will report them if they dont deliver it correctly. THEN I immediately txt the driver once they accept the order and tell them i will be waiting outside and that I am tracking the order speed for 'quality assurance' and that I am a 'tester for doordash' or something to get them to think that I actually work there and that I will be tracking them for some sort of corporate quality control or some crap. that has gotten my orders from being stolen about half the time to only 1/5 so once a week. It got top the point where once I ordered food and the driver drove literally the opposite direction from my house and seemingly drove home and NEVER marked it as delivered. so i watched him parked at what i assume was his house for 3 hours until i called them and they canceled my order and apologized. I then reordered the SAME ORDER and a different driver picked up my food and drove like halfway to my house and marked it delivered. I never had a knock and when i walked outside there was no food. I called again and told them and they apologized and refunded me a second time. At this point I thought well it cant happen again right? like what are the odds? I am far too hungry to spend an hour cooking noodles and sauce and all that and thats all i had. So i placed a different order at a place that was really close.... long story short that order was also taken. 3 in a row. like if you want to know where doordash and grubhubs money is going its those thieves that take your food. some ppl have had better luck than me but i will say its a real problem. if you go onto reddit there is alot of ppl complaining about it.

  • Lmao I got a doordash add before this video

  • hahaha i got a doordash ad right before this

  • Skip the dishes is absolutely the verb “wanna get skip?” Is usually how it goes

  • Anyone else see aj Uber eats add before this video , the freaking irony

  • So many businesses, companies, products have come about because....we're lazy

  • lmao doordash ad on this video was perfect.

  • watching this as i wait for ubereats

  • “Hi, I’m a cringey Postmates robot and would like to place a pickup order. Are you ready?”

  • delivery apps are robbery

  • this is actually super insightful because all of this happens on a day to day basis where i work

  • I got 2 ads for food delivery apps on the beginning

  • thank you for the picture of a hot dog Drew Gooden

  • I use postmates sometimes but when I do get delivery I almost always use uber eats, it's the one that sucks the least in my opinion. So whenever I order delivery I automatically use uber eats as the verb.

  • and thats why capitalism isn't sustainable:)

  • I got a door dash ad wtf

  • Thank God within a 3 block radius I have two Italian /pizza places , a Chinese place a and a combo Thai food/fried chicken restaurant (you heard that right) so I always just go pick it up instead

  • This would be great if it was sponsored by Hello Fresh

  • I'm never using doordash again. Everytime I order anything from anywhere I never get the drink ever but always get charged for it. I get ice coffee and frappes and they a fortune and I never get them. And anytime they claim they dont have something they never refund me the whole amount because the workers at thecrestuarisnts steal your shit then claim the machine is broken then doordash wont refund you. I'm never using again. They never tell you they dont have what you ordered until your dasher already picked it up then refuse to refund you. Regardless of which restaurant it is. The bums working at these fast food places wont answer the phone because they know it's you calling to complain that your getting charged for nothing so they drink your 6 dollar drink for free. Then they can just act like the driver took it. I will never use fldoordash again fuck them. If you dont have what I want then tell me and I'll cancel and go elsewhere. Nothing but thieves in this world. 4 out of 5 times I used doordash this happened. I spent 125 dollars this week and got 2 medium fries 12 doughnuts and 2 frappes and an ice coffee and 20 price nugget for 125 dollars. I was supposed to get about twice the food for 100 dollars

  • God the other day I payed 23 fucking dollars for one chipotle bowl.

  • Business like Netflix make money not off of movies or their streaming service, they make the money off of their stock.

  • I Deliveroo vindaloo.

  • Californian here - Prop 22 actually would not have affected driver schedules at all. It was really clear in the text of the law, on purpose, to avoid this confusion. But the apps had so much fun lying loudly about it that no one noticed that the prop wouldn't help drivers at all, and now it's stuck on our books.

  • Anyone know if skipthedishes is like this?

  • As one who works in a restaurant DoorDash is sometimes the most annoying with customers calling with issues DoorDash caused. Totally still don’t use DoorDash for myself

  • I usually order from Wolt. Prices are same as in the restaurants and delivery is only 1$.

  • "Convenience.. Is very convenient."

  • i cant take grubhub seriously

  • I cook the food, you deliver the food, we do they for 40 years and then we die!

  • Here in Germany there is like only 1 left of these services. It's a Dutch company, I believe, that ate all the other similar companies in one go. I had to order food from my favourite greek ... Well it's really just a small shack next door. But we are good buddies and he told me, he noticed I ordered once via delivery and told me about the price gauges and what not. But some things where inconsistent. In the pricings, like they don't add up so he told me that's because he really just doesn't want to have this hassle anymore, he makes good money because so many people order for delivery but he misses the interaction and people sharing stories when he prepares their food etc. I kinda feel him there, he is an old dude and been doing this for longer than I live. He still makes some of the best stuff I've ever tasted and gets me fed for a day for less than 10 bucks.

  • I got a doordash add on this lol

  • I used to deliver dominos and they don’t pay a delivery fee to you, only tips and in shop, door dash is much more profitable

  • I think the only thing wrong with this video is thinking the driver isnt blamed for everything

    • The driver is just an employee, whose not responsible for the unsustainable and unethical workplace. The businesses don’t care about them and make it nearly impossible to do the job correctly and cleanly. :)

  • I know this video is old now but in case you're still curious, when I first started using delivery apps the only one I used was Uber Eats, and thats because I was living in dormitories and skip would always map the dorms to just anywhere on campus and then drivers would get mad at me and tell me I put the address in wrong. Uber drivers always showed up to the building I actually lived in.

  • **Eats delivered food with malicious intent**

  • Look at the actual price of things on the menus at the stores in person, they spike the numbers also

  • There are a lot of staple Companies in America that run in the red, just like the rest of the country. They are unsustainable, and will eventually die, just like America. America is not the best country, and eventually, nobody will lend to us anymore. Approximate lifetime of a country is usually between 250 and 340 years. America is 244 years old.

  • got a doordash add. on the video talking about the flaws of delivery apps

  • i got a postmates ad on this video

  • My verb is..drive

  • The first time I ever ordered doordash I ordered some food and a drink from an Asian restaurant. I got my food order late and wasn't given my drink. When I called the restaurant they agreed that the driver that they gave the food to was untrustworthy and that they had given my full order and we're happy to completely refund me which I refused. Some doordash a****** was drinking my fruity drink happy as a mother f*****.

  • I literally got a door dash ad before this video. Great marketing

  • hey guy

  • You're assuming that these apps are the product... They're not. They're basically marketing for the eventual ipo that they're hoping that naïve millennials will buy into.
