COWG-Communications and Outreach Work Group

COWG-Composite Optical Waveguide

I really don't think those ^^ were it. So I figured out the last two letters must be WG==White Guy. And then I thought, maybe the C==Caucasian. But the C and W would be redundant. Next up was the letter O. And it could only mean old! So did you mean Caucasian Old White Guy?? Inquiring minds want to know.

If so and to tie it into the thread, I am not going to vote for Peoria as being friendly. I HATE being called Caucasian! I prefer the more neutral term of "cream color".

Edit: C didn't stand for Crotchety, did it? "You people" from Peoria are all the same! Another vote for Scottsdale!
Cranky Old White Guy….

Solution:

"I'm sorry Mr. McEmployee. I work for DoorDash and I have to deliver this ice cream cone. Could I trouble you for a cup, please? Thanks so much! "

Problem solved.

Thanks. Maybe ASU would take me into their Master's Degree program now.

I'd have to conclude, I don't think Tempe is laid back much, but nowhere near as bad as Tucson. ASU itself is super laid back, but non ASU people are not so laid back. For me, the two suburbs I'd not live in are Tempe and Mesa. I've never had any issues with food delivery anywhere else in the Valley. They are mostly in Tempe. I had more issues with food delivery in Tucson as a whole than in Tempe, but I'd say Tempe is the 2nd area with many issues with food delivery.
I'm convinced this is not real. It can't be. You trollin'?

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that we live in a world where someone is ordering an ice cream from McDonald's and having someone else deliver it to them.

It reminds me of the blob people in the movie Wall-E.

I know. I decided to leave the low-hanging fruit for other people to talk about. Wow!

That's me, low hanging fruit picker. Somebody's gotta do it.
I pictured the OP with an ice cream mustache delivering a sopping wet cone sans ice cream.

If you are not comfortable asking for a McCup and you get melted ice cream dripping in your car, I'd expect the DoorDash driver to lick the tip (cone) in lieu of an actual TIP (Too Insure Promptness kind).

I'm think that the person from Tempe who ordered the cone was, by definition "chill". Get it? But was he delivering it to an ASU person or non-ASU person? Inquiring minds need to know.
