Never understood why people have to have their groceries delivered to them. Seems so unnecessary.
Root738573y"It is truth not a fact"
... what? As you've used them, they have an identical meaning.
@Root "Truth is an instance of quoting one or many of the facts while describing or discussing the subject. The difference between truth and factis that fact is something that cannot be combated with reasoning, for it is logic itself. But truth is something which depends on a person's perspective and experience."
@MrNielsen You need that extra human in your daily life. Too much of Machine has engulfed us, which has lead to avoid neighbors talking to each other, friends deprived to meet.
Root738573y@jhh2450 Easy: when it's 40c+ outside, I don't want to drive anywhere.
h4xx3r17133yHis argument perceived as wisdom is weak, because:
1) He is talking about his own social preferences, something that is meaningful and enjoyable for him doesn't mean it's for everybody else.
2) Casualties that turns out to end well because there was someone else that aided as proof of validity of his points is meaningless, because you can't really control them, you're only lucky if they end well.
Imo, preferences and luck aren't arguments from which perceive wisdom, or, at least, they are weak 🤔
@jhh2450 I mean, Pantry delivers groceries for close to nothing here. And not having to leave the house is convenient. Finally, on top of that, at least someone else lifts the ten kilograms of wheat flour to the second floor.
Only kidding on the last one.
Getting utilities online is a service provided to you. It is economical, easy, time saving hence efficient. But that does not mean it has no disadvantages if you lean on to use them for every single situation in your life.
Lack of social interaction is a disadvantage in this case which may be weird to hear because social interaction is not thought of to be endangered when you are interacting with people on so many platforms on regular basis. But still that human touch in your day to day life matters.
Casualties often tend to end well when you have someone to help you or someone to care for you. This is common sense and I've seen many instances where people other than family members come in support for you or to help you when you are alone or in distress
These people also include those which you interact with and you support their lives by purchasing from them. This is not luck, if you care and help others they will do the same.
donnico13223yHaving grocery ordered online and not having to carry heavy bag helped me fix my broken spine.
I live abroad and the only way I have to pay my bill in a language that I understand I by Google translate the online page.
Bank, post-office, health care. Everywhere I go in person people avoid to comunicate with me because I don't speak the local language.
Without online service I would be cut off and have to spend a great deal of effort / time leaving me with zero time to spend with family and friends.
Your truth is just contextual to your / your dad reality.
h4xx3r17133y@harshmandalgi 🤔 I was more generic on casualties, it's always luck when someone else *see* or *hear* you being in trouble
@donnico sorry for your spinal. And yea what you are saying is right. But the context is all together different.
What you had a serious pain in spinal and you are lying on the road, you do not receive any help as no one knows you. And people passing by have their own stuff to do, but one of person passes by whose you are a customer will surely help you.
donnico13223y@vattytrivedi yeah maybe if it happened in my hometown, where everybody knows me and my family, but in a huge city I think it would be more luck if somebody would. At least this is my experience in European countries
By the way if my comment sounded harsh I apologise, I reread it and I tought it could be read as harsh.
this is quora type answer
So many people on so many different platform have the exact same story.
That old dad must be moving from town to town and screwing up a lot of females. And then moving into the future taking all these kids, from all these different females to banks.
