    Usually if you contact a place directly if they deliver it will be cheaper (You should still Tip).


    I know the tipping culture is very big in the USA. I would argue though that surely the company that employs the drivers should ensure that the drivers receive a decent minimum fee, and then compensate for that fee in the price of the item when offered online? Especially in this time of Covid-19, I for one am not carrying any cash anymore (all contactless) and as a driver I would be very reluctant to accept cash in hand from someone at a random house. Plus there is the more ideological argument that customer-facing workers (e.g. drivers) should not be made dependent on the whims of their assigned customers as to how their pay check looks that month, but I guess that's a whole minefield in itself.


    Surely you would be wrong. I usually pay and tip directly when I order from either their website or over the phone. Plus it gets me my food faster.

    Hopefully we are going to be able to pick up FFB this year. I love playing with everyone and don't want to lose that connection that we have built over the years.

    What the hell is up with delivery fees and service fees to order takeout in this country.

    Tried ordering the other day. My ten dollar order, had an 3 dollar delivery fee, 1 dollar service fee, 2 dollars in taxes and a recommended 3 dollar tip. At this point I just decided it wasn’t worth it.



    Usually if you contact a place directly if they deliver it will be cheaper (You should still Tip). I usually either contact a place directly or do pick up. After Door dash got caught not giving drivers all of their tips, and food from grubhub was consistently cold, and with restaurants struggling to get by during covid, but losing money when using a delivery service. I try to stay away from them.

    I've done no research on this but I'm willing to guess that the UK is not leading, or even part of, these efforts.


    Considering that the UK has been the largest sponsor worldwide of GAVI, which is the organisation coordinating the COVAX programme, I think that is slightly off the mark.

    Good to hear my cynicism was unfounded in this case. Happy to be proved wrong.

    OK, the jet ski.

    Some idiot from Scotland decided he wanted to visit his girlfriend/easy hook-up/bit on the side for some fun and games and didn't like that we'd closed the borders to non-residents.

    So he hired a jet ski, thought it would only take 40 minutes to get here and set off. Four and a half hours later, and just running on fumes, he made it. Landed in Ramsey and walked to Douglas which would have taken another few hours. Had some fun with the girl and was later picked up and arrested for breaching Covid regulations.

    Was sent to jail.

    Made international news, people were saying how lovely and romantic it was (I'm sure if he'd infected their grandma it wouldn't have been so romantic but what do I know?)

    Anyway he was recently released and booted back to Scotland (though I think they let him use the ferry on this occasion).

    It later turned out that he couldn't swim. So it could have ended up a lot less entertaining...


    Sounds like he may want to rethink which head does the actual thinking.

    You still in Chicago? If so, what are you doing next Saturday? I will probably be in town to meet up with a friend from high school.

    I see and laugh at the many inside jokes in your latest post. It was great to see you again in Chicago.
