Yes, It’s Okay to Order Delivery During a Storm, Right?
Melissa Mackenzie

Had a rather absurd exchange with Mike Madden of the Washington Post about whether or not to order delivery during a snowstorm.

You can go read the whole thread if you want.

It’s a strange argument to me, that a person offering a service shouldn’t be allowed to offer said service during a storm. If a person wants to work during a downpour or snowstorm, and if I, the consumer want the service, why not work out that arrangement? It’s called capitalism. The delivery guy can charge more and decent people will tip more and everyone is happy.

This seemed like a straightforward argument. Both people are exercising choice. Both are free to enter an agreement or not.

There was a big discussion over at DeadSpin about it and Mike Madden thinks the answer is a flat “no.”

What say you?
