    my 2 cents..I am a Sports sport and i would def Do 5 apc.... If the guy was cheerful, helpful, and all went well i might throw him 10...But 5.00$ i "say Thank you sir",..

    Day 1 has passed. No delivery.

    We will see if it comes Day 2.

    If it comes on Day 5 (the maximum time frame allowed), let's just say I won't be tipping 15%. I'm fearing that people in my area are engaging in a tipping war, and maybe even 20% ain't cutting it now.

    I'm getting close to just hiring my own guy to do it. I know a few people in the community who could probably use the $.

    That is a forced Tipping situation you are involved in & not a gratuitous tip.

    I'm just trying to figure out what the best procedure really is here. What is the tip amount to get 1-day groceries? 2-day?

    My order was like $350 so 15% was already over $50. 20% would be $70. So at some point it just gets so high that you might as well just hire your own person to do it.

    Not looking for bargains here, I just want to know what it really costs and how fast I can expect it.

    Are you kidding me? Have you seen 2+2?

    Makes this forum look like it's a meeting place for MENSA. And don't even get me started on the casino and sports gambling forums.

    Buy Ken a HAZMAT suit and pimp him out for a piece of the profit.

    As a bonus he might be able to jerk off without visiting a restroom. ☺

    I would totally hire him but he doesn't have a car, nor does he live close enough to me, so it's a no-go.

    We place 6 or more instacart orders a week it seems. Fucking lifesaver, especially since they deliver liquor from Wines and More.

    I've upgraded to liquor bottles with handles.

    Between Instacart, Amazon, Grubhub, Uber Eats, and Green Chef we're good to go.

    What % do you tip, and how long do the deliveries take? We're on Day 2 and nothing.

    15% and I usually go on first thing in the AM and my stuff is delivered within about 3 hours. Once on a Saturday we had two deliveries from Fred Meyer and Costco and they came first thing Sunday morning. Otherwise it's been same day.

    literally a non zero chance druff got blackballed on instacart.

    Zero point zero actually. My first order had a 15% tip and I haven't gotten it yet.

    Seriously though, I'm about to give up on this shit. Apparently tony bags lives in an area where people are more niggardly with the tips, and 15% gets him the food within 3 hours.

    I've sat for 2 days and nothing. Let's just say this isn't surprising, as I live in an area where I can totally see people starting to tip 30-40% because they want their shit fast. Which probably leaves even the 20% tippers out in the cold.

    Good chance I start messaging people I know in the area who (I think) would like the money, and offering them the job to be my personal grocery shopper. Will probably end up cheaper and faster than this Instacart faggotry, even if I pay them pretty well.

    BTW if I was 35, I wouldn't be doing this. It's the fact that I'm 48 and have high BP that I don't want to take the risk.

    I WONDER which listener would be totally ok with this vernacular.
    It is in my bones which sucks so can make it hard to move sometimes. Trying to spend as much time with friends and family.

    Used an autorefresher for Freshdirect.

    Got Saturday 6-9am delivery and snap make the reservation. First time in 3 weeks getting a slot


    Might be an indicator that things are going back to normal.
