There are a number of ways to measure wealth in this country, and in specific metropolitan areas – even by zip code. You can measure it by the size or value of homes, the amount of money people have in savings, or even the amount of personal property that people have.
But in Santa Monica, there’s a new measure of wealth out there. The people who compile statistics, of course, haven’t caught up to it yet, but you can measure wealth by type of things that you can have delivered with the touch of a button on an app or a simple phone call.
At one point, people in some parts of the country were happy to have their mail delivered rather than having to go out and pick it up from the Post Office. A hundred years after that, pizza delivery became common. Over the years, various iterations of grocery delivery have been tried and largely failed, overall.
When a city is wealthy, its residents have enough money to pay others to make things happen just because they don’t want to be bothered, and that’s the reason this delivery service indicates a new way to measure wealth. So what is this new delivery service?
That’s right, if you live in Santa Monica (and some other parts of the LA metro area), you can fire up this app from your desk at work, and someone will come and bring you gas. You don’t have to be there, all you have to do is make sure the tank door is unlocked.
Because you won’t be driving past a gas station on your way home, right?
All joking and social commentary aside, we think this is kind of a cool idea and we recognize there is some value in it. Living in Santa Monica, chances are strong that traffic is already enough of a daily annoyance that you won’t want to leave the road, get gas, and then get back to driving. It does make sense, in a “We might actually use that if it wasn’t horribly expensive and if it ever came to our area” sort of way.
The company, called Purple Delivery, operates in Santa Monica and surrounding areas. Their site uses examples like when you can’t tear yourself away from the current episode of Idol, or if you’re stuck in meetings, or even if you’re on a date. Done right, we can see how this actually would be something of a time saver.
Deliveries can be scheduled in one or three hour timeframes, and they’re waiving the delivery fee for the time being. You can get ten or fifteen gallons delivered, which is enough to get you well into the “almost full” zone in just about any car, even when you’re running on fumes. They’ve just expanded to their second city, the service is now available in San Diego, as well.
