Maybe I should switch to Disqus before posting this instead of having the comments be a free for all to submit. But since the readers are sending me to Albania anyway, I don’t think a few more ‘don’t let the door hit you on the way out’ comments will cause more damage to my sensitive heart.
I was staying at the Hyatt Place Long Island City (which was going to be my go-to hotel because it was 8k points/per night, but now it is moving up to 12k, sending me back to the great Four Points LIC), when I got the urge for some fine pizza.
Instead of overrated NY pizza, I went with the solid Michigan choice of Little Caesar’s Deep Dish. (That statement alone will trigger angry comments.) Instead of using the annoying Seamless app which no longer had my card on file, I tried the Uber Eats app. And let me tell you, I love the app. It charges my Uber card on file and uses the same map to track my order as I would my Uber ride.
The app told me that my food was arriving. Before I could go down to meet my driver, the front desk called and said that the food was waiting for me. When I got to the lobby, I was surprised that the driver had already left. With no awkward moment of having to sign the receipt and look at the disappointment for the pittance I gave as gratuity, I grabbed my pizza and headed back to the room.
Moments later, I received a notification from the app asking if I would like to leave a tip. Maybe because I’m used to not tipping Uber drivers or maybe because no one was watching, but I dismissed the notification and did not tip.
Who hates me? Who agrees?
