Now we’ve all heard the stories that Amazon is a big evil corporation, however we cannot seem to resist the siren call of low, low prices and same day delivery. Convenience is a drug, baby, and we’re all hooked! Although we all want to be the types of people to not support a greedy capitalist conglomerate propped up by questionable working conditions and knock-off products, we still manage to sit around on a Tuesday night clicking “add to cart” like it’s our fucking job. Lordt have mercy.
So although unquestionably problematic, we continue our unholy addiction to Amazon, stuffing our carts with batteries, and gardening supplies, and dildos, and harem pants, and any number of other things that somehow we’re able to buy ALL IN THE SAME PLACE?! Whilst in our underpants at home eating chips straight out of the bag?! WHAT SORCERY IS THIS??
The scourge of Amazon addiction is widespread as fuck. Especially among those of us with kids, bleeding our bank accounts and forcing us take each moment one convenience at a time. We’ll try to do better, but until then, lay it on me Prime!
