Wake me up, Scotty!

June 10th, 2010 · 106 comments

Too busy to microwave your morning serving of saturated fat? No worries! If you’re a New Yorker, you can get your “special diet food” delivered right to your door. Or, um, your neighbors’ doors.

An open letter to “Scotty,” who presumably lives in this building.  Hey Scotty, here’s a wacky idea for you – next time you order food delivery maybe you should remember to tell them which apartment you live in.   Now, god bless you for ordering McDonald’s at 7:15am - you must have been in pretty rough shape if you couldn’t walk your ass 3 minutes down the block to pick up an egg McMuffin yourself.  But to be honest, it’s pretty annoying to be woken up three times by the delivery guy knocking on my door (I told him I wasn’t Scotty and didn’t order McDonalds, but I guess he didn’t believe me the first two times). And it was especially awesome when he just started yelling your name in the hallway in hopes that you’d hear him. Thanks for that, really appreciate it.

Our anonymous submitter can vouch for the note’s veracity. First of all, she says, the McDonalds is literally one block away from the apartment building. “But what’s worse,” she says, “is that the dude didn’t give his apartment number, so the delivery guy just started banging on random people’s doors and yelling ‘Scotty!’  in the hallway. At 7 AM!”

    McDonalds deliver?

      I’m puzzled as well. Which country (state?) is this based in where McDonalds will deliver?

      They deliver in Singapore and Malaysia…I don’t remember if they do in Wisconsin because I ate McD’s a lot LESS when I lived in the USA, ironically. Where do you guys live?

      Folks, it sez NY in the 2nd line after Title + Date lines. Leer es poder.
      I went to the first McD’d in NYC in 1972 for the novelty value.
      After that, not so much.

      McD’s, KFC, Pizza Hut, and other gringo + local fast food places deliver down here in Costa Rica, in insulated cargo boxes on the back of 175cc cycles that pass you on both the right and left hand sides muy rapido.

      Getting a McMuffin couriered one block in NYC ?
      That place must have hellacious lines in the morning.

      Here in Norway, I think the only local place that delivers is Dolly Dimple’s Pizza, but that’s gonna run you about USD 80. The McDonald’s and Burger King here in Stavanger are in the midst of the vast no-cars-allowed city centre.

      Walking from my house to the McDonald’s and back takes about 45 minutes, which I figure permits me to eat McDonald’s weekly when factoring in the, uh, cardio or whatever I get from that walk.

      Well, civilization is definitely going to collapse. Life as we know it is finished. With McDonald’s delivery, there will be absolutely no reason to ever leave the house from this point forward. Cell phones, cable TV, internet porn and Mickey D’s, all in the comfort of our homes. How long before we become a world full of bed-ridden fatties, washing our folds and creases with our handy sponge on a stick that we had delivered from QVC?

      Don’t get dramatic mamason. McDonald’s delivering isn’t news, they’ve done it for a long time in metropolitan areas: NY, Buenos Aires, etc. All the other restaurants and companies also deliver in these areas so it’s not out of the norm. McDonald’s isn’t evil and trying to make everyone fat, it’s just food that you can choose to buy or not.

      I guess “If you’re a New Yorker” means New York, but maybe Scotty’s a native New Yorker that’s now living somewhere else? A magical land where delivery guys instantly know where you live.

      And yes, I would have just eaten Scotty’s food. Screw him.

      We have a ton of delivery here in San Francisco, but I have no idea if McDonald’s is one of them.

      Scotty would probably forget to input the coordinates and the McMuffin would land in the staircase…or half protruding through a wall.

    In Scotty’s defense, I have many times ordered delivery, told them my apartment number, and had them not give the apartment number to the delivery guy. I think maybe they expect the name to be posted, or there to be a doorman or something. Or they’re just dumb.

      As I used to work for a place who delivered, if we had the right number (sometimes it was given wrong, sometimes it was put in wrong and never corrected) it doesn’t always matter even if you tell them. If it’s not clearly marked, (on the receipt, on the building) it might be hard to find too. Or the directions are/building is labyrinthian, as some of my poor drivers used to complain about.

      Though really, I have to not feel sorry for the building people at 7 am, other people are up, awake and about to be out the door for work. It wouldn’t drag them out of bed, it’d just be a passing notice.

      Not everyone can walk. Maybe Scotty lost the use of his legs when he hit the rocks diving into the surf to save a little girl from drowning.
      He still has nightmares about that day, can hardly sleep in fact, and after awakening in a cold sweat ordered some simple comfort food and just forgot to toss in his apartment number.

      Maybe he just beamed down here from a starship from the future and the records computer, though great at picking his wardrobe for our time period, simply had no information about apartment numbers because in the future data chips with all of our personal info are embedded in our front doors and simply scanned by delivery persons.
      So many plausible possibilities like these exist that I can’t list them all here.

      H-M,
      Research the smell of butyric acid.
      Much better than a prank delivery call.
      Absent a high or dumb deliverer, you’d only hurt the restaurant.
      Plus, if they noted the time of the call, a LUD* report could spoil your day.
      Probably no jail time, but why risk the aggravation ?
      BUTYRIC ACID…your revenge kit isn’t complete without it.

      *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LUD

      P.S. Of course, if you have a grudge against a specific restaurant that delivers…well, then you have a 2-for-1 possibility…but use a pay phone.

      I learned about butyric acid in Organic Chemistry lab. Fun stuff. Evidently it also has a sweetish aftertaste, but I don’t know why you’d want to eat it.

      If you want revenge, you could try out something I’ve always wanted to do just for fun, the Pinata of Horrors. Basically, you take a pinata and fill it with all the horrible smelly-ass shit you can think of (canned fish, stinky cheese, malt vinegar), stick a note on it saying “Crack me open, I’m filled with candy and money and booze and stuff!”. You then leave it in front of the recipient’s door and wait for the awesome to unfold.

      Not sure what kind of deficient sense of smell you’d have to have to get close enough to it to taste it.
      Pinata sounds great, but there are a few technical problems I’d rather not have to solve.
      In SFD land, the flaming bag of poop on the doorstep gets the job done in plain sight. Apartments are much tougher, so I’d go butyric there.

    • #5.5   aaa bang

      I’d probably work very hard to develop the perfect Pinata of Horrors just because the idea is awesomediculous. I may even devote years of research to helping it achieve perfection.

      I have no dogs or dog poop, but I’ve got a thing about feces, so it’s unlikely I would ever be able to transfer them into a bag to light it on fire.

      I think the anti-whaling people who go out on their ships throw butyric acid onto the whaling ships to get them to stop whaling. I’m not sure how successful that is. It seems you’d need something stronger than a prank-level stunt to keep somebody from doing something that’s presumably highly profitable.

      I want to prank people with stink now. :/

    • #5.6   infant tyrone bang

      Not sure on whaling ships. I found out about it in a college Chem lab and just smelled it…ouch. I vaguely recall that it may not be easy to dissipate the smell after it gets on something, so maybe the vomit-like smell lingers long enough to be a viable deterrent to some degree…and it’s cheap.

      For the PoH I think you’d need some sort of bag that could be filled with goodies, then sealed, and then inflated to high pressure. Problem is, when you break the bag, there isn’t necessarily going to be any propulsive force applied to the goodies. So you’d need an inner air-only bag with very high pressure that would somehow rupture at the same time as the outer bag and add a little impulse to the contents. The feedback circuit for that seems non-trivial, to put it in diplomatically mild geek-speak terms.

      Plus, how are you going to watch the neighbors get the Horrors spewed onto them if they take your engineering pride + joy off to the back porch or basement? You’re not going to install a vidcam with a battery-powered transmitter back to your receiver at home…are you ? If you can do that,
      go for it and post the video somewhere and come and give us a link to it.

      Y’know, you could team up with a coprophile who has a paper aversion.
      S/he fills, you deliver + light as they operate the camera. Child’s play.

    It’s not necessarily a McDonald’s Deleivery. Some Large cities have ToGo Taxi’s. Literally they will go anywhere you tell them and get whatever you ask of them and then bring it to you with an obvious percentage of cost for them based on cost and distance. It’s a pretty awesome thing when you are really craving somethign from some restaurant somewhere out of your realm of energy or time to go on your own. I have used them before, BUT, seriously? …fracking McDonalds?

      In one of my home cities, Houston, they have a TakeOut Taxi as you describe. In college I worked as a waiter and those guys would show up daily and annoy our bartendress (lady bartender) while waiting for the order.

      Only old people ate at that restaurant, so I’m guessing that the folks who used the TakeOut Taxi were hella old and decrepit and weren’t mobile enough to eat at a restaurant.

    I think there are bigger fish to fry here than apartment confusion and an obvious lack of a proper diet: what kind of grown-ass man refers to himself as Scotty?

      Maybe Scotty’s an 8-year-old with a stolen credit card. Might explain the apartment-number oversight.

      There’s clearly a connection between the McDonald’s food, address issue, and name: After growing up with years of abuse from his dietician father, a teenage Scotty moved into his current apartment, where he ate only fast food, a substance long prohibited by his father. Now middle-aged, Scotty keeps his nickname in an attmpt to retain his youth, possibly getting the childhood he never had. Speaking his apartment address only reminds him of his tormented past.

      Hey now – one of our Clumbers is Stella. Named partially (ok, MOSTLY) that so that when, in hunt tests, she decides to ignore us and run off we can drop to our knees and scream STELLLLLLLAAAAAAAA!

      The sad thing is that among several of our friends they only know the reference back to Elaine on muscle relaxants in Seinfeld. Makes a sad Clumber.

    Why didn’t someone just take one for the team? Say, “I’m Scotty!” give the guy $10 and tell him that for future reference, waking up an entire apartment building (except for Scotty who has probably passed out) could be dangerous for a loud-mouthed delivery person.

      Nobody wanted to claim to be Scotty because that was not a McMuffin. It was summons. Scotty is being sued for malicious mischief.

    Assuming this isn’t a prank, and frankly I think that’s most likely, I think the delivery guy was high.

    I think the delivery guy should be getting the blame here: there is no excuse for yelling and banging on doors like that, regardless of the time of day. Either you call the customer or restaurant for the apartment number or you go back to the restaurant.

    If the customer didn’t give the apartment number then it’s their fault. If the restaurant didn’t give the full address to the driver then it’s the restaurant’s fault. Either way, it does not make sense to make it the problem of everyone else in the building.

      Would Scotty’s inability to walk down the block qualify as
      a state of suspended animation ?

      Or if he was high and doesn’t remember ordering, but then hears the delivery person calling his name, maybe a state of cognitive dissonance ?

    All this could have been avoided if Scotty boy could have taken the 5 min to cook his own damn egg (or less to microwave it) throw it on a bagel with some pre cooked bacon and a slice of pseudo cheese and microwaved it for 20 seconds like dear McD’s did.

    Hey at a fraction of the cost. Imagine!
