TRUE STORY: I got PRICED OUT of a 3-Entree Meal from a CHINESE RESTAURANT via a Food Delivery App - went to Grocery Store Instead...
gasp

I was sick and tired working my way down a whole brisket I got at a Sam's Club / Costco at $2.99/lb...

feeling hungry, lazy and sick of beef monotony...

I fired up my food delivery app that I hadn't used in a long while...

I select my regular favorites from my favorite Chinese restaurant that I've eaten for decades in person before the sham lockdowns...

FOR ONLY 3 Fucking Entrees -
consisting of fucking fried rice and a bit of protein...

NOTHING FANCY OR EXOTIC, COMES TO:

$72.xx FOR MSG LADEN FOOD

+$9.00 APP SERVICE CHARGE

+2.xx REGULATORY SURCHARGE

+x.xx SALES TAX

+3.99 DELIVERY CHARGE

AND THAT BEFORE ANY TIPS FOR THE DRIVER...

---- I CLOSED THE DELIVERY APP ----

FUCKING OUTRAGEOUS...

SO I JUST CAME BACK FROM THE GROCERY STORE, SAME STORY:

FUCKING OUTRAGEOUS !!!

They have fried rice at sams for cheap, use some of your beef a little sweet and sour sauce. They have stir fry veggies there too. You could put together a great chinese meal for a few bucks.

IT IS NOW IN MUH WOKE HELL HOLE CITY!

AND DON'T FORGET...

MOST DELIVERY APP PARTNERS WITH RESTAURANTS REQUIRE VIA THEIR CONTRACTS AND AGREEMENTS THAT...

DINE-IN MENU PRICES ARE TO BE THE EXACTLY SAME ON FOOD DELIVERY PLATFORMS...

SO ALL RESTAURANTS JACKED UP THEIR PRICES TO COVER THEIR FOOD DELIVER PARTNER'S IMPOSED SALES COMMISSIONS, ADVERTISING FEES, ON TOP OF MONTHLY FEES, AND PAYMENT PROCESSING FEES, ETC...

FOOD DELIVERY ACTUALLY MADE TAKE OUT EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE FOR EVERYONE - WHETHER DINE IN OR DELIVERY...

Go to the store & get some "PEANUT SAUCE".

It's the sweet-spicy brown sauce we all love in chinese food.

That's all you need!

you're a moron and believe you're getting to get food delivered by a third party app less expensive than picking it yourself (same restaurant and not using an additional middle man) OR cooking it

I bought Chipotle through DoorDash the other day for my kid, two steak and cheese burritos with steak and cheese only but extra steak. I have DashPass and with tip, it was $55.

I’ll never order through DoorDash again. I’m also done with purchasing anything from a restaurant.

Nah, it's driven by cost of goods sold, including labor. Minimum wage is very high now. Delivery labor is expensive too. I've always thought those things were too expensive and avoided paying for them, but now it's even worse.

Just buy and prepare food yourself. It's not hard.

An elderly friend of mine was sick with a nasty cold a few weeks ago and asked me to go get her a chicken sandwich at a local takeout restaurant.
I watched the guy make it, 5 oz chicken breast on the grill, a thin slice of Gruyère cheese and a few very thin slices of avocado on top with lettuce on a bun, some fries all in a styrofoam container, came to $21.00 !!!

FRIKKIN rip off!

Tried to order a pizza today and the total came to 16.99, which wasn’t bad but they then wanted 6.59 for delivery, tax was 2.99 or so and then tip would have been 7 so I did the same thing. Closed the app and ate what I had at home. An additional 14 ish for delivery fee and tip wasn’t worth it.
