New App Helps Delivery Drivers Find The Nearest Restroom

With dining rooms shut down across the country, it’s an understatement when I say that we owe a lot to gig workers like delivery drivers to keep our bellies filled and our cravings satisfied. However, one of the inconveniences they come across is finding an open restroom that doesn’t require a purchase to use whenever nature calls.

However, thanks to a new app appropriately named The Whizz App, that won’t seem to be a problem anymore. Created by gig workers, for gig workers, Whizz uses a Google-styled map to help delivery drivers locate pre-screened locations that will permit them to use restroom facilities, no purchase necessary.

The Whizz App, a black-owned business, was developed by co-founders Robert Logan and Keith Crudupt who could relate to the discomfort and difficulty drivers go through when needing to use the bathroom while on the road. The two friends linked up to create this first-of-its-kind app to bring some comfort to the gig community.

WaBa Grill, one of the nation’s leading rice bowl chains, has stepped up to become the very first brand partner of Whizz. What that entails is the ability of app users to get restroom access at any of WaBa Grill’s 200 locations across Southern California. Subscribers also get exclusive digital coupons through the app.

The Whizz App is available via download on Apple IOS and Android devices.

Pranksters Show What Happens When You Don’t Tip the Pizza Boy

pizza_pranksters_1

Not everyone believes in tipping, especially when it comes to the pizza delivery guy, so Canadian Youtube prankster group NELK created a video showing what pizza drivers really want to do, but can’t, in response.

Group member Jesse purportedly got a real job at Pizza Pizza as a pizza delivery driver to pull off the prank. For the video, Jesse was followed around for 25-30 deliveries while he surprised the people who didn’t tip him by destroying their pizzas right in front of them.

Although some people remain confident in the belief that tipping pizza delivery drivers is not a necessary gesture, others are agreeing with NELK for standing up to people who refuse to add a little extra for service.

Make sure to watch the video to the very end and see how the pizza manager responds to Jessie’s customer service.
