“Dear PoPville,

I’m curious if readers feel increasing frustration with food delivery services like Instacart and GrubHub not delivering to the door. I note those specifically, because they have become the worst, in my experience, with refusing to park and deliver to my apartment. For companies that operate in urban areas, I have no clue why they don’t get why I would pay a 20% tip and a delivery fee to go retrieve my own food from across the street (and in the case of groceries – lug up three flights of stairs).

I’ve recently started sending it all back if they won’t deliver. No matter how much I need it it how hungry I am.”
