It’s National Anti-Cooking Day. Tradition-loving grannies are not having it.
Following the proclamation from Waitr that September 24 shall be officially declared National Anti-Cooking Day, the local group of “Grandmas for the Advancement of Old Family Recipes and Treasured Cooking Techniques” expressed their frustration via Facebook.
Myrna Jones, the group’s leader, commented, “What an outrage. This holiday is baloney!” Jones also created a Facebook event to boycott the holiday and encouraged the group’s members to paste and share her posts to their own pages. Jones even went so far as to add the stinging phrase, “most of you won’t share this,” noting that this passive-aggressive remark is her go-to for ensuring her Facebook messages are amplified to their fullest potential.
Waitr recently announced September 24 as National Anti-Cooking Day in an email to its members, in response to the widely-recognized National Cooking Day holiday that falls on September 25.
“We feel strongly that a day to honor all the good things about not cooking is important, and we mean no disrespect to anyone who is pro-cooking,” commented a spokesperson for Waitr. “In fact, we love cooking… we just love it more when someone else does the cooking and we get to deliver delicious meals as a result.”
No matter what you celebrate, Waitr wants nothing more than to deliver your favorite local foods conveniently to your doorstep. Because you’ve got better things to do than worry about dinner, dishes, and frivolous holidays.
