Sure, on these hellishly wintry weather days there are all manner of emergency service people out there who are doing an absolutely fabulous job of keeping things together – both by removing cars from flooded roads, and also by keeping trees from falling on our heads.
All very, VERY noble deeds.
But tonight I am giving a very deserving shout-out to another group of ‘lifesavers.’
Because let’s face it: when we are all warm and comfortable in our cosy abodes, away from the unnerving elements, and keeping ourselves warm next to a heater/fireplace/under seventeen layers of clothing, and we subsequently can’t be stuffed making dinner because
a) it’s the weekend
b) it’s cold
c) it’s too hard
d) you’re tired
e) no bloody reason AT ALL
who do we turn to?
The takeaway delivery drivers.
We simply pick up the phone from the comfort of our couch and –
beep beep beep beep, beep beep beep beep
“Hello? Can I make an order for delivery please?”
30 minutes later and BANG! Food is on the table 🙂 Tonight’s menu: pizza, chicken parma, and chips – the best in comfort takeaway 😉
You don’t even need to worry if your local takeaway haunt doesn’t provide delivery, as nowadays a million and one third parties, DO.
So, these drivers out there take the brunt of the whipping winds and howling rain, trying their damn-dest to get to the top of our driveways for just a moment to escape the middle-of-Winter severity, as we stand there counting loose change for this poor soul.
Note: They deserve ALL the tips. Think of that next time they are shivering on your door step.
I salute you all, delivery people!
