Food Delivery Services Need This Additional Option

food-delivery-apps-logos

I am trying to support local restaurants during this coronavirus era by ordering twice per week. And never from the same restaurant. Early on, I thought that delivery services such as Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes and Door Dash were contributing too, by offering steep discounts to customers on each order. I was wrong – but it’s an easy fix.

No, corner store beer won’t cost taxpayers $1 billion. Scare tactics!

Look at this bullshit headline:

Beer in corner stores could cost Ontario taxpayers $1 billion, industry sources say

Uh, no.

And I’m not some ignorant hack spewing an argument based on gut reaction. Well, okay, it’s a gut reaction.

Uh, guys? This is the same as Notepad. Except for the pretty colors, and the fact that you can’t have a million lines of text (which I don’t need for this anyway). So it’s a yellow Notepad. Useless.

What it would take to get me to go back to cable/satellite TV

As I approach the four-year anniversary of cutting the cable (i.e. canceling my satellite subscription), I started musing about what it would take to bring me back.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m completely happy with status quo. I have the NHL Centre Ice package, and anything else I need I simply stream it. The kids are happy with Netflix and don’t seem to be in need of anything more, and ditto for my wife. It would appear that, on this issue, I’m in the driver’s seat.

So what would it take?
