The 10 Stages of Menulogging
We love hearing about your takeaway adventures on Twitter! Whether you’re bored at home opening and closing Menulog like it’s the fridge door, or you’re suggesting creative ideas for items we should start delivering, we can’t get enough of your Menulog musings. Over time, we’ve started noticing some patterns in the way we all order food online…
Without further ado, here are the 10 stages of Menulogging, as tweeted by you!
1. THE DISASTER / LAZINESS STRIKES
Mostly the laziness. And the fact that you’re not a stranger to Googling “how many minutes to boil egg”.

Moved my gym app to make room for menulog on the first screen. Felt like I was dragging away my future, and replacing it with a better one.— cow in bath (@michaelcerasgf) March 9, 2015
Missed my train station because I was so focused on getting my @Menulog order just right. I’m awesome at being a grown up.— Leith Marshall (@LeithMarshall) June 13, 2014
3. THE CONFIRMATION SMS
Are you a dinner-plate-half-full or half-empty kind of person?
the worst part of menulog is the confirmation text telling you your food will arrive in the year 2078— thomas violence (@thomas_violence) February 21, 2015
The best sext is a confirmation of order text from Menulog. — Heluva Bottom Carter (@OreoSpeedwagon_) January 13, 2015
4. THE BRIEF WINDOW OF PRODUCTIVITY
There’s 40 minutes until the food arrives. Maybe you should clean the bathroom? Nah, just sit by the door and wait.

5. THE REALISATION
The restaurant’s SMS is an omen of delicious things to come, after all.
Real talk: confirmation texts from menulog fill me with more happiness than texts from loved ones. — Heluva Bottom Carter (@OreoSpeedwagon_) December 17, 2014
6. THE STARVATION SETS IN
40 minutes seemed much quicker when you hit the snooze button on your alarm this morning.

7. THE DOORBELL! AT LAST!
We probably recommend putting pants on. For the delivery person’s sake.
Waiting for menulog, probably not going to put pants on to answer the door. This is my life. — I want snacks (@AprilNolo) December 28, 2014
8. THE LIE TO THE DELIVERY GUY
Tip: keep the TV on in the background so that the voices create the illusion of company.
If anyone hears me shout "foods here", it's just me pretending for the benefit of the delivery person that it's not all for me. #menulog— angela mary claire (@AngeMaryClaire) October 21, 2012
9. THE SWEET SATISFACTION
wife belly, happy life.

10. THE “WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE” THOUGHT
You just ‘made’ dinner without leaving the couch.

Let’s be honest, a hot meal delivered right to your door is pretty remarkable…until we get our act together and invent commercially available dehydrated pizzas as seen in the 2015 of Back to the Future II.
Menuloggers, take comfort in the fact that 2015 may still produce the goods.
In the meantime, embrace the ordering cycle and order dinner tonight!…and then tweet about it, because you’ll be automatically entered into our #FeedMeForAYear competition!
