What do you do when you need something ASAP, but you don't have it ?I'm talking about stuff like an aspirin pill or an umbrella, what do you do when you need them real bad, but don't have them at home right now: 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)
The best thing to do is to have someone around that can help you. It could be a neighbor or someone who lives with you. Of course, you can only call them in the middle of the night if you are in excruciating pain. If you are able to drive then you go get your medication yourself. I've never had the pharmacy deliver it to my house.
I'd normally just ask for friends to help to deliver them to me if it's possible. It depends on how badly I need the things. Everyone's got a price so if you bribe them with what they want, they'll usually succumb to your needs.
Around 15 years ago I had an attack of excruciating muscle spasms. I called the mom-and pop grocery store that I normally frequented. I had a bottle of Advil delivered in 10 minutes. You never know who your friends are.
I've never found that there is anything so completely essential to me that I cannot wait until next day, week, month or year to obtain it when I can conveniently do so.
If I need a painkiller and have none, I try to find alternate means of easing my pain.
If I need an umbrella because its raining, I either don't go out or find something to cover myself with.
What I try to do is make sure emergency supplies including an umbrella are always at hand, it not then I try to find alternate means of survival.
Thank you for your answers!
But wouldn't it be great if you needed like one pill of aspirin or a couple of fresh croissants delivered straight to your door step?
just wondering. I heard there's a company that sends people to stand instead of you in a line in the post office or in the bank, so I just wanted to know if there are other weird companies like that.
Those employees must really hate their life to do that kind of work......who likes standing in line for anything, especially for someone else?
I just imagine I have it . . . usually turns out to be better than actually having it!
I occasionally use pea pod and takeout taxi which operate on a similar idea. They work well because you can do it all online and they are quite cheap.

I always thought the local pizza chain should have teamed up with blockbuster and rented a movie for you and then picked it up on the way to your house with the pizza. I thought that would be a good business idea.

I was talking to my friend about atheism the other day. I said that theists just 'know' that God is there, they can feel him there and to them, he just is there, but I've never felt anything. I just dont feel him at all, even when I was younger and brought up religious I can tell now that he was...

What percentage of your traffic is due to Facebook?I wonder if I would do a lot better if I was on Facebook (socially) for marketing my articles. I have a business fb page for promotion purposes and use it for posting new articles but the return is minimal. Do you depend on fb for the majority of...

Several religious hubbers have made repeated statements that they somehow own the threads here in the religious section. It sounds a little dubious, but I'm giving it a try. This is my thread. You were not allowed to post anything other than complimentary statements about me, or my views. Some...

There have been a few threads going on that are harping on the personal family issues of some politicians, namely Sarah Palin.Yes, these individuals are heavily exposed because they chose to run for office, but why the downright ill will towards the people themselves or even their husband or wife?...
