Poll: How Often Do You Get Delivery?

How Often Do You Get Delivery?

The other day, my guy and I were seeking something to eat late-night, and I suggested Thai or Italian delivery. He immediately turned it down, saying he's not a fan of dialing out for delivery, because it's easier to pick up takeout. How do you feel about it?

We haven't gotten anything delivered in about a year or so. Pizza arrived cold and squished. . .:( And now we live close to a downtown, we walk over there, drive out to get some food, or cook at home. Luckily, cooking at home is our preferred method....even if I'm the only one cooking :p

I haven't got a car, so most things are delivery for me. But I really only order pizza and wings, and that's maybe...once a month. On a good month. It gets a little expensive. They added on a delivery charge, which would have originally been my tip for the driver. Pricey, pricey.

Possibly about two times in the last 10 years.

I order pizza or chinese takeout a few times a year, but never delivery. Usually when I resort to takeout, I pick it up on my way home after working late.

It's how we get our Chinese food. The dude brings it in a Lexus, or on a scooter. He must be doing well.

I cook, cook, and cook some more. My friends drag me out once a month to eat at a restaurant and I'll pick up some zap meals for lazy nights, but I haven't ordered delivery in a long time.

I get it way too often. I grew up in a place where you could only get pizza. Now being able to go online and get any kind of cuisine delivered right to my door is too tempting.

Every so often, we really want Chinese food and we'll call for delivery so we don't have to drive across town and pick it up.

My husband and I order pizza maybe once a month. The pizza place is about 2 miles away...too far to walk on a busy road but close enough that it only takes 20 from ordering to delivery.

We live in NYC - the land of delivery - but we never order in. We both cook, so most nights one of us is happily at the stove. And if we don't want to cook, we walk out of the building and have a big choice of local places to go that we like. If we want to take out, we usually hit the corner diner or Chinese place and bring it home.

Um...I think the last one must have been 5 years ago, it was something about me being pregnant and too lazy to go out at night for pizza (thanks to craving). We usually prefer cooking ourselves and the occasional take-out (once every 3 months), as for eating out, we do it like..once every 5-7 months.

i used to always get delivery when i lived alone but now that i have my husband, we either go out or cook but rarely get delivery. (to be honest, i don't know if we've EVER gotten delivery together)

I like cooking at home too much to do it, plus the only food you can order around here is extremely unhealthy. And.. (this is terrible).. when I'm hungry, most of the time I can not wait 20 minutes or longer for something to get to my house =P BUT! One day, I will start a breakfast delivery service. Or I'll make someone else do it, because I wish for it pretty much every week.

Once or twice a month! I grew up in an area that didn't have delivery, and so now that it's available to me, I like it! It's wonderful to have food delivered!!!

I never get delivery. a)I dont know where that pizza has been and i have SEEN what peoples cars can look like or be harboring. I once got a pizza that had cat food and cat hair in the box because the delivery driver had my pizza ON HIS FLOOR. b) why pay someone to deliver a pizza? and why let some stranger see whats in your house?

Since college, I have never ordered take out or delivery. The unhealthiness of it grosses me out. So on days we don't cook or go to a sit-down restaurant, we have cereal or make a sandwich. Luckily, my husband will eat anything sitting around the house!

i'm neutral. i rarely order in or pick up. it's easier to just walk somewhere. plus, it's inevitable that whatever i ordered will get soggy in the box... all i want to know is where the pizza in the picture came from...
