 We had pretty good discussion this morning about delivery drivers. Those people are working seven days a week and not being paid what they should be in most cases.  An Amazon driver is going viral for listing the top three things she wishes we'd stop ordering online. Let's be honest, we really don't need EVERYTHING delivered. Handicap, injured, and elderly being the exception. You can check out what she had to say here...

Amazon Driver Shares 3 Items She Doesnt Get Paid Enough To Deliver | YourTango

An Amazon delivery driver, Jennifer Monique, has urged customers to consider the challenges faced by drivers during the holiday season and refrain from ordering these three specific items.

 On a typical day, Amazon drivers deliver up to 350 packages. It is tough because even though it is their job to deliver things, they are delivering more than ever before. It used to be people at least got Sundays and one other day a week off. That is not the case anymore. The postal service is its own set of problems and we won't go there. When it comes to Amazon, those drivers are usually sub-contracted. They don't get Amazon wages, benefits, or perks. Some of the don't have time to go to the bathroom so they go in bottles. They are being monitored by camera. Not to mention, they cram those vans full of packages and rush drivers to get everything delivered. It is pretty wild, don't take my word for it, check this out... 

In an effort to be fair, let's hear from the other side of this particular coin... 

if you do get things delivered often, help those people out. Keep your yard cleaned up. Make your porch easy to get to. Leave them a water bottle or two. If you can't carry something by yourself, the driver might not be able to either.
