Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

What I mean is whether: a) somebody at Just East sees a list saying Mr Strachan wants X, Mrs Petrie wants Y, Coprolite wants Z, and the driver turns up to McDonald's and puts in an order for X, Y & Z, or b) McDonalds get a list via an alternative system and dump it on a waiting driver.

I noticed that the preparing / collect screen had an order like 72570, 067, 068, 069, 85325, 000, 001 002, 86777.  I presumed that the long numbers were the complex Just Eat ones, giving somebody wanting a double cheeseburger and a McFlurry a half an hour wait.

B) order goes via app to mcdonalds and justeat. The drivers get notified when there's pickups available, accept the job on their app and go get them with a code.

because of all those Just Eat delivery cnuts

I've never understood it. The food can be cold when you order in the shop. You've no chance waiting half a hour for some twat from just eat to turn up at your door.

Wheezing lazy b*****ds on mobility scooters getting in my way in the shops - or the same people a few years younger just being slow fat fuckers taking up the space limping along in oversized jobby catchers toward Greggs (thats when they are not sitting outside tabbing away with their fat bairns).

eta - Particularly in Cameron Toll shopping centre, Edinburgh.

My dog knocked over a big bottle of beer. Spilled everywhere. Gaff is reeking.... a peroni too. 

my dog (below) spent his last few years kicking about in a carriage when his back legs went. He still loved going to pubs and on quite a few occasions before I could get the carriage off him he would batter into chairs and tables sending everything flying - quite often down me also. I reeked of beer for about a year as a result and miss not being able to call on that as an excuse these days ha

My son pointed out that the long delivery numbers are hexadecimal.

Pwoud, very pwoud.

As you should be.

P.S. Can you ask him how hexadecimals actually work?

Switching your calculator to hexadecimal mode at school unlocked a whole new world of childish things you could type while everyone else was still sniggering away at typing 80085.

Exactly the same as decimals except it's base 16 instead of base 10

I know the system but how is it actually used. in practice?  How would you know if the number 162315 was 16-2-3-15 or 1-6-2-3-1-5?

Why can’t they just leave things alone.  There was no hexadecimal when I was a lad and the world was a better place for it.  No deliveries either…

it would be 1-6-2-3-1-5.  Hex characters are 0-9 then A-F to represent 0 through to 15.
