Lunch is something we all do on the reg, but #saddesklunch should never be. Services like Seamless can make a difference, but what if you’re just not in the mood to choose?
That’s okay. Three guys named Mike Lacher, Chris Baker, and Bryan Denman get you. They created Seamless Roulette, which works for those times when you’re existentially bored with the prospect of yet another terrifyingly sad vending machine raid, or when you’re just totally overwhelmed by the sheer number of options on Seamless.
Basically, this intriguing new service completely takes away the painful burden of making up your mind about lunch.
All you have to do is sign in with your Seamless information, set a dollar limit, wait for your food, and then eat it.
The question you really have to ask yourself is: are you ready to give up that much control? Because it could all go horribly, horribly wrong. The creators of the site even warn you about that fact right on the front page.
A couple of caveats: Gothamist tells us that there’s currently no way to address food allergies using the Seamless Roulette site.
Also, site coder Mike Lacher stressed the true ramifications of ordering this way to Gothamist,
That’s cool if you’re extra thirsty, but we’d definitely be upset if all we got was a flight of milkshakes and no actual food. (Ok, we wouldn’t be that mad.)
Beware: you also run the risk of something really boring happening, like what happened when we tried to place an order:
Three California rolls for lunch? No thanks. Even if you like them, do you really want to stuff your face with three of them at once (and nothing else)?
All your Seamless orders can’t be winners. At least with this site, you don’t have to blame yourself. But you can’t blame the guys who put it together, either. Seriously, the site says so.
Also, they don’t actually have anything to do with Seamless.
They have, however, both asked and answered the most important question about Seamless Roulette:
We can’t wait for all the hilarious and triumphant tweets that are sure to come pouring forth from the smartphones of Seamless Roulette players.
