Amazon Prime is probably the most amazing invention on the planet. I know many will disagree, and that’s fine. But with a job like mine that cooks my tofu on a daily basis, the last thing I want to do is get in the damn car and go SHOPPING! Anyone who knows me understands that. I actually went shopping with Friend Pam the other night (good in-person coupons for Michael’s and Bed Bath & Beyond). I almost died. I hated it. I found what I needed and wanted to leave immediately. She was looking for a “fun” gift for a holiday exchange. She was wandering around the store looking at un-fun things like portable clothing steamers (sorry, Pam). I grabbed a 6-pack of locally-brewed beer and said, “Here. Buy this. It’s fun. Let’s go.” Nobody really wants a portable clothing steamer for Christmas, do they? Do they?
So yeah! What’s up with that?
Maybe I am just not impressed with crowds and jostling around. Whatever the reason, I would rather shop with my computer. The same stuff shows up on my doorstep 1-2 days later with free shipping. I don’t have to lift a finger.
