food, Capitalism!, 2019 Show more
it's extremely cool that i've gone back to just ordering from places over the phone in 2019 instead of placing easy and convenient online orders, because it turns out every online hub to deliver from (grubhub, ubereats, whatever) is either fucking over the restaurants OR their drivers
