Meal delivery companies are ruining the restaurant dining experience. They delivery companies play hardball with the restaurants, forcing them to cut their profit margin on delivery food and forcing them into a pickup schedule that prioritizes delivery orders over orders by customers sitting in the restaurant. This increases prices and reduces service levels to actual sit-down customers.

I know quite a few delivery drivers and most all have semi-embarrassingly admitted they taste the food they're delivering fairly regularly to see if the place is any good.
They described ways of going about it undetected by the customer
No thank you please.

@Menlo Voter, Of course, bOKB" is the new troll tool for the msg board monkeys.
It's already past the sell by date but from an IP check on multiple boards, there's a person here who hasn't gotten all the attention he needs yet.
