When we were in Puerto Varas, we had a long day coming back from Chiloe and were nearly out of groceries. Mark and I ordered some Uber Eats which was surprisingly available in Puerto Varas, the only other place we’d seen it offered was Santiago. We were pretty pumped to have dinner delivered.
We placed our order and received the message that our order would be delivered in 20ish minutes via motorcycle. Great! Dinner in 20 minutes. We were so hungry.
*Ding an update arrived 10 minutes later. Your order will arrive by bicycle in 30 minutes.
Okay, that’s fine, we can deal.
30 minutes passes. We check on our order, it is still 30 minutes away. Hmmmm. We view the map and see the dot slowly moving along the beach.
Mark was outside hanging all of our camping gear to dry from the wet camping in Chiloe and spots a guy walking a couple blocks away with a box in hand. They lock eyes, and they both instantly know. That’s our food order. Mark is who this guy is delivering to, and he sees that he is arriving not on a motorcycle or bike but walking. We’re pretty sure the guy hoped to just come to the door and ring the bell. That way we’d just assume he was on some sort of transportation.
Our pizza and burger was ice cold, but we got a good laugh out of it.
