Now that I've had a ridunkulous number of late nights in a row eating on the client's dime and then some, I have come up with The Ultimate Strategy to getting my SeamlessWeb food to me ASAP, STAT. After ordering what I need to order, it's 99% of the time cushily under the firm's $25 "limit."
My strategy is to lay on a phatty tip, up to the limit. And it works.
See, e.g., today I ordered at 7:07PM, and I received my "delivery downstairs" phone call at 7:23PM. See also, yesterday I ordered at 7:23PM, and I received my "delivery downstairs" phone call at 7:47PM.
Coincidence? I think not!
