Tr0mBoNe: I call it "Grubber"


If they can get a merger with McDonald's they can call it "MacGruber".

They're not a money losing food delivery business, subby, they're a fraudulent food delivery business:

I can't keep up with this gig crap anymore. Just following it is a full time job.

Back in the beforetime, when I worked in a restaurant, we hated dealing with all three big food delivery companies.

Delivery guys showing up to pick up orders 2 minutes after they were called in, delivery guys showing up 50 minutes late (after the customer came and picked it up themselves), random farking fees, the person actually calling in the order sounding worse than Indian tech support, angry customers because we didn't translate the order right from Indian tech support speak, etc.

They can all burn in hell as far as I am concerned.

The bigger they get, the harder they will fall.

I've never used one of them and never will. I will happily drive to the place and get my meal after I order it from the restaurant's own website.

Correct.

GrubHub was profitable last year, but while it is losing money now it has higher operating cash flow than before.

being a fraud is profitable, shock-horror.

I love reading these farking things...

In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as "anticipates," "believes," "contemplates," "could," "seeks," "estimates," "intends," "may," "plans," "potential," "predicts," "projects," "should," "will," "would" or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms. While forward-looking statements are our best prediction at the time they are made, you should not rely upon them.
