Before the pandemic, I rarely ordered products for delivery.
For instance, pizzas are an extra $4 for the delivery fee alone, and that’s before factoring in the tip you give the driver.
Since my favorite pizzeria is located on my work commute route, I can simply pick up pizza on my way home from the office at night if I have the desire. I have one of those hot and cold bags from the grocery store and they’re just big enough for two large pizza boxes stacked on top of one another. This sure beats paying for pizza delivery, but I wouldn’t have a choice if I was far away from the pizzeria or lacked transportation. That’s what happened for a few months during the pandemic. Our car broke down and I was riding the bus to work every single day. I relied on delivery for everything from basic supplies and groceries to meals. The delivery drivers are often extremely professional and polite during the process. However, when I ordered from a cannabis dispensary using their cannabis delivery service, I have definitely experienced hiccups. Sometimes they’ll only have half of my order and I’ll be stuck waiting on my cannabis edibles or cannabis concentrates until the next available delivery day. You have to deal with these problems and stop yourself from getting angry when they make mistakes. It’s really nice on the days when they manage to get everything right and also arrive within the time frame that they initially promised. If I had the choice, I’d much rather stop by the dispensary myself when I wanted new cannabis products, no matter what they are or what route of administration I’m using.
