We’re on a mission to take office lunches to the next level. And we’re not all talk. We put our money where our mouth would be if apps had mouths. Take last week, when we let our besties at PayPal try out our new Shared Cart feature. We did it partially because they’re the chocolate drizzle to our protruding tongue (apps have tongues for obvious reasons), but also because we wanted their advice on how to make it even more awesome.
Awwlz re-enactment of a corporate food coma
Sure, Shared Cart is already pretty rockin’ with its ability to let people simultaneously order from the same menu…but we want it to be even better.
Well, our brilliant plan completely backfired cuz we forgot about this little thing called a food coma. Which meant PayPal was completely unresponsive post-lunch. Oops. But nevermind that. Watching them place their order actually gave us more than enough to think about.
Do we need a penalty box for Hangry button abuse?
Gimme my $*&!@#& hot wings NOW
The Hangry button has a noble purpose. But we have to say, PayPal was a little trigger happy. Matt L and Angelique, here’s looking at you. Listen, we understand blood sugar issues and and intense cravings better than most, but the two of you pressed the hangry button so many times the marketing team actually called the programmers over to sit on standby in case it broke. Ok, so maybe marketing doesn’t entirely understand how the 1s and 0s thing works, but please get help.
Should we add a “420″ button to help users make better decisions for their particular situation?
Order extra fries and pizza=problem solved
We’re not one to speculate (ok, maybe we are) but PayPal’s order made us wonder about what exactly was going on in their offices. Sure, they seem like your typical corporate office, but something seems a little fishy about eight orders of waffle nachos cheese fries, six burgers, three spicy ham sandwiches, three pepperoni mozzarella egg rolls (isn’t that just one evolutionary step past a pizza pocket?) and two pieces of cake. Did we mention there were only eight people ordering? All we’re saying is they aren’t exactly Paleo.
What will people PayPal when the Zombie Apocalypse happens?
Whatever you do, don’t fumble.
Since PayPal is the self-designated future of commerce, we started wondering what that meant for the impending zombie apocalypse. Like, will survivors be PayPaling burritos in exchange for ringtones the undead can’t hear? And if that’s the case, do processing fees=salsa? And what happens if zombies also eat burritos? We super <3 burritos, so these thoughts were kinda disturbing…so we PayPaled some money to ourselves and ordered 8 deep fried burritos to cope.
No cash=making it rain mozzarella sticks?
Makin’ it rain on them mountains
Since PayPal means you don’t need to be weighed down by a heavy billfold, that frees up room for more important things. Like mozzarella sticks. But Eat24 you’re probably saying, how can I make it rain if I don’t have any cash? That’s a legitimate concern and you’re not alone. Let us suggest making it rain spring rolls and egg rolls and summer rolls…or whatever you’re into these days. We would personally love to be showered with all kinds of rolls. And we’re totally willing to work it if you know what we mean.
So, PayPal, how ’bout it? Can we have a roll party to, eh em, roll out our new ideas?
