The 10 Stages of Menulogging

Menuloggers:

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”.

 

You really, really want a pizza, but there’s that new Indian place with a 25% first time discount. Hello, curry!

3. THE CONFIRMATION SMS

Are you a dinner-plate-half-full or half-empty kind of person?

 

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.

 

9. THE SWEET SATISFACTION 

Happy 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!
