So I am missing out on somebody eating half my fries during delivery, or eating one of my 6 chicken strips and blaming the restaraunt for miscounting. I wouldn't trust anybody but pizza delivery. At least you can tell when pieces of your pepperoni topping are missing.

Most things I order come sealed these days. Usually the bag is closed with a logo'ed and perforated label (impossible to remove without ripping the label or the bag).

A couple of the restaurants I frequent have sealing delivery bags (similar to shipping bags with a strip that is peeled off to expose an adhesive strip) and the only way to open the bag is to literally rip it open.

Restaurants know that customers want reassurance that their food hasn't been tampered with.

(PS ... no, you can't always tell when pieces of pepperoni are missing. My nephew is a master at swiping toppings before anyone else has a chance to get their pizza from the box. LOL)

Every time I want to watch a movie on Prime, they want an extra $2.99 to watch it.

As a stand alone service, Amazon Prime Video is not worth it. For most, I suspect Amazon Prime Video is an extra benefit to the free shipping, sales and deals of Amazon Prime and from that perspective its fantastic. Prime Video does have some great series and great movies from time to time although its not consistent. I love it but I see it as an extra benefit to the overall Amazon Prime service which I use all the time especially since COVID.

There's a few TV shows that might be worth it. The Man in the High Castle, Bosch, Mozart in the Jungle, P.K Dick's Electric Dreams, Counterpart. As a standalone service though it's way expired. It used to have some better offerings that would rotate through, rewatched Sopranos, The Wire, True Detective and whatnot. All off Prime and never to return. It's pretty crap now. It has a few originals but not enough to make it worthwhile and then mostly crap, just a fringe benefit to the $140/yr Prime subscription for free shipping.

Then I go back to the beginning of the list. Reduces my costs considerably and makes it easier to watch streaming video. I don't have to remember which of the ten subscriptions had the show I watched last night. By only having one or two active subscriptions at a time, my watching habits have gotten easy to manage.

That's smart.

Aside from streaming Thursday Night Football, can't remember the last time I even logged in to watch.
