A few days ago I heard about this new company called ‘Quenched’. They offered to deliver alcohol within 45 minutes to people who live within the central Wellington region. I thought it sounded cool. You could only order within certain times, and when ordering you had to accept the terms, which included that you could not be under the influence of alcohol when ordering. I immediately thought that it would be unlikely anyone who was sober would order the alcohol, and it would be more of a thing where you run out of alcohol and you want more, but can’t drive to get some.
I’m not going to lie, I thought it was a pretty cool idea. But yeah, I do see why it would also be a horrible idea. They have received quite a lot of negative feedback it seems, from people who are worried for health reasons, and fair enough. We don’t really need to have an easier way to get alcohol. They have received so much feedback that they have taken down the website for now.
I removed the email address, because I’m fairly sure they’re getting enough contact right now. I wonder if they will work out a way of coming back, or if that is the end of their business before it even started.
What do you think? Good idea, or worst idea ever? 🙂
