Why UberEats? Why?
It doesn't make sense.
People are just doing it because it is new (and needs to be tried).
My son ordered UberEats (= takeaway, home delivery) from a fav eatery on Goodwood Road, about 4km away. It was a wet and cold night and the food was delivered by bicycle. The food was cold; as you would expect after delivery by bike on a cold and wet night, on a journey from so far away.
Eat there or drive and pick it up. Just common sense.
Yes, my son got Uber credit for a bad experience, but that's not the point. A bad food experience is totally not acceptable. It was all fine before Uber arrived. It hasn't impacted me, but the young are uberising many aspects of life; and creating a new norm. It's a bad business model that delivers cold food, bad service and leaves the consumer dissatisfied; and reflects poorly on the food outlets.
Today, in the junk mail I revived an UberEats advertisement encouraging me to order from Macca's and use the promo code ADEMCD3.
Maccas is only 494metres away. I could walk or drive there. I do visit about once every 3 years. Actually, I don't, I go next door to KFC and get some healthy chicken and chips; sorry, a sick joke! But, there are times when the body craves fast food.
So, why would I use UberEats and order takeaway from Macca's?
It's likely to be cold because the delivery person uses a bicycle.
Feel free to use my promo code.
I won't be using it.
Actually, I feel bad about giving it away; because it probably won't be a good culinary experience for you.
I'll just quietly Uber off ...
