OK, I just got of the phone with my favorite local Chinese delivery restaurant and YET AGAIN I went through a very long, very embarrassing harrangue (but polite and not loud - I do have my pride) asking, no - begging the phone person to MAKE SURE the chef lets the soup COOL OFF so it's warm, not hot, before pouring it into the styrofoam cup, because the cup gets all pitted and rough on the inside and the lid often splits and falls apart - indicating we are eating styrene - a chemical that contributes to one's chances of getting CANCER. This time I am going to give the delivery guy (whom I tip very well) the nasty cup from the last delivery (washed out of course) and I've asked the phone guy to make sure he feels inside this cup with his hand so he will understand what I am talking about. And make a note of my request for soup cooling-down before packing, because we order about once a week.
I'm not just ranting, although that has it's place, no - I'm hoping some chowhound will have an idea that will solve this problem once and for all. I'm stumped.
They just do not seem to get the message. Thanks!
