Ever been to The Waffle Window in Portland, Oregon? It’ll seriously change your life. We’re talking hot fudge sundae waffles, peanut butter and chocolate dipped waffles, and even waffle ice cream sandwiches. Yeah. There’s really no going back after a trip to The Waffle Window. But what if you’re only on a short layover at the Portland airport and there’s no time for a waffle run? That’s what happened to Theresa C., but she knew exactly what to do: she hired a TaskRabbit to bring her favorite waffles to the airport. Kate C. picked up the order from The Waffle Window, drove the waffles to PDX, and handed them off to Theresa without ever leaving her car. Have a layover coming up? What would you get delivered in Chicago? New York? London? Phoenix? Denver? Air travel will never be the same again.
It’s no secret that we’re dog lovers here at TaskRabbit. Not only was a dog crucial to the founding of our company (that would be Kobe, a 100-pound yellow lab and our Chief Inspiration Officer), a TaskRabbit even helped one New York family find their perfect pup. But as much as we love canines, we also love kitties. That’s why a collective and audible “Awwwww” swept through the TaskRabbit offices when TaskPoster Caroline G. posted a cat delivery Task this week. To help a friend in San Francisco through a difficult time, Caroline decided to send a kitten — via a Virgin America flight from New York. TaskRabbit Edward D. met the kitten at San Francisco International Airport, picked up litter and cat food, and delivered her (with a bow, naturally) right to Caroline’s friend. What an incredible way to show you care from afar.
