Sequel to the Uber Eats topic from last week!

Well I tried to use Uber Eats last night for a McDonald's, ordered a large Cheeseburger, large chips and shake from the one on the High St, it gave the delivery guy's mobile number so I rang 'em up because I knew he'd get lost as they all do, must've rung about 5 times to give directions and I still didn't get my meal!

Why does Uber employ people with the local awareness of a flippin' Gnat?! This is the second time since last week that I've used online ordering to order from the same branch and not got my food.

I officially give up!

    @MrAllen1976 bit off topic I cant find your other thread I just went on indeed and put in part time work Sheffield and loads of jobs came up and we're disability friendly 

    There was a long list  of jobs  you could apply for five a day or five a week to get down the list your bound to get one of them ?

    Third thread. Same subject. Nothing further to add beyond pointing you to previous observations that Uber don’t “employ” anyone, and, you’ve been given a comprehensive answer on the point below. To reiterate:

    - they’re not employees. They get no training.
    - it’s an exceptionally low paid job which will often leave the driver out of pocket.
    - you’d need to be desperate to take such a role and thus many drivers are from well out of area. 
    - your insults towards people operating in the midst of a pandemic in appalling circumstances for poor pay appear to repeatedly lack insight and empathy. Turn it round and try and imagine being lost at night in an area you don’t know and being attacked verbally by customers and risking termination every time it goes wrong.
    - talking to my local delivery services my understanding is that at this point your approach to these issues means they’ll take your money but have likely blacklisted you.
