GrubHub’s Free Lunch Fail

GrubHub vastly underestimated the number of New Yorkers who’d want free lunch. ‘Hangry’ customers took to Twitter to complain of orders that arrived late or not at all.

New Yorkers went as hard for free lunch as the Rangers did in game 7.

Our restaurants and drivers are still working hard fulfilling your orders. Make sure to show them love today (and every day). ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿงก— Grubhub (@Grubhub) May 17, 2022

ShipGo…To Hell Commercial

The Most GenX Tweet In The History Of Twitter
