The future is here, ladies and gents, and it’s both convenient and delicious. 

Gone are the days when an afternoon of back-to-back meetings required you to skip lunch.

Now, you can post up in the conference room, order a sandwich from the deli down the street – via text – and in a matter of minutes, the flavor express will be knocking on your door.

But food delivery isn’t just for busy people. It’s also a godsend for anyone who’s too lazy to interrupt a Netflix binge to cook for themselves. Don’t even get me started on what it means for those of you who can barely butter your own toast.

(Seriously, how did we all get by before the days of Seamless and UberEats??)

…Not to say that this new future is perfect.

Because relying on apps to do our dirty work doesn’t just speed up our routines, it speeds our journey to the grave.

Literally though. Our phones are killing us. So best to keep yourself in check.

If you exhibit these 18 signs of food delivery addiction, it may be a sign that it’s time to get off your phone – and off your ass – and interact with someone other than your pizza guy.

You know you’re addicted to food delivery when…

1. The first time you ordered ‘the regular’, they asked (with slight horror) if it was all for you… And then they never asked again.


2. You never have to type out your order – because everything you could possibly want is saved as a previous order.
