I come home only to find boxes sitting on my deck. It never fails. Even with two day shipping, I forget that I bought anything at all. In fact, my first response is WHO sent me all these presents? For a few seconds, EVERYDAY is Christmas even though I celebrate Chanukah. Then Is see “Amazon Fulfillment Center,” and I remember, that I may have ordered something.
I had spent an hour commuting to work and an hour commuting from work for 30 years. If you do the math, that equals 40 extra hours a month or an extra full week of work. If I worked 11 months a years, that means that I “lost” an extra 11 weeks of my life sitting behind the wheel. Multiply that by the thirty years I worked, and it comes to over SIX full years!!!!
Towards retirement, I happily discovered Amazon Prime. With just one click, I can order absolutely anything, I don’t have to get in my car, drive, find a parking spot, spend or waste time wandering around, drive back. I just have to click. In fact, I don’t even have to go to the post office to send a gift. I can just click and have anything shipped to anywhere.
Thinking about the trees that are being used for the packaging does not deter me.
CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW COME AMAZON IS NOT PROFITABLE?
AND WHY IS COSTCO such a better company? You have to drive to Costco. You have to walk miles on concrete. You have to buy in bulk. You have to load your cart, unload at the register, reload the cart, put everything in your car because, while amazon is using up trees on packing materials, your groceries do not get bagged or packaged when you leave Costco. You have to drive home, and then you have to drag everything in, item by item.
PLEASE HELP ME COMPLETE A TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC SURVEY:
WHO WINS? AMAZON PRIME? or COSTCO?
