Hi,

What do you do whn you need something ASAP, like an aspirin pill or an umbrella, but you don't have it at the moment?

do you give up and try to survive without them, or do you go out and buy them.
Have you ever needed anything and wanted someone to deliver it straight into your apartment (and were willing to pay for it).


Thank you

Why are you asking this?

If I need something, I get up off my a$$ and go get it.

What is the reason for the question?

If I "needed" something, at 4am in the rain, then I would go get it. Need is like blood is gushing from my head and I need to fix it. If I don't need it (umbrella at 4am? if I am presumably home?) then I wouldn't. It depends how you define a need. There are real needs and then just plain wants.

Very rarely will I need something bad enough to go out and get it immediately but rather I jot it down on the list on the fridge and buy it when conventient.

Now if it's something really IMPORTANT like beer or gin, I brave the elements. I don't have ANYTHING delivered unless to big to carry or from far away.

It would be a convenience. "Great?" I wouldn't call it that. Unless I had planned to spend the rest of my life inside my apartment. (And if that was the case, why live in New York...or any other specific place? I could just as easily live in a tiny town in the middle of the Great Plains).

Doorman buildings often do have that service.
