I know that the world has been convinced that global warming has been caused by my overuse of Aqua-net hairspray in the 80’s, the farts of California cows and my Hemi engine, but that’s not the cause. Any of them.
Th real cause of global warming is Amazon Prime.
How do I know?
Well, first, I need to let everyone know that I am not a scientist – nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so I may not have all of my facts exactly right…
We moved recently. We are downsizing as all of the kids have left the nest..well….almost (hint..hint..).
We recently sold the house we had lived in for almost 11 years – the longest I have lived anywhere in my life. This house was just shy of 4000 sq. ft. and have moved into a smaller house of right at 1800 sq. ft.
To give you an idea :
We now have a house and two storage units.
In order to make this small house work, we have needed to order A LOT from Amazon (cause face it, we all know Wal-Mart doesn’t carry everything – especially customer service. Who has time to stand an hour in line for a box of q-tips and a bathroom shelf).
We have ordered shelves to go on the backs of pantry door and the linen closet, organizers, etc. We have had at least one delivery a day for the past month.
However, they also have same day delivery on things.
Here’s where global warming comes into play:
At 9 or so Sunday morning, I realized we needed q-tips. So I ordered q-tips. By 6 pm that day, I had q-ips. Around 11 or so on the same day, I realized we needed to restock toilet paper. POOF! By 6 pm we had a box of toilet paper! Two different deliveries.
We needed comforters, bunkie boards, a wall mount for the tv and a shower curtain. Every. single. item. came in a separate delivery.
Today I have paper towels coming. I also have laundry detergent coming- in a separate delivery because I ordered them at two different times of day.
Tomorrow I have a blade for the edger, 409 and baby wipes.
All in separate deliveries.
I have no idea why their computers don’t get all of the orders and say Hey! These are all going to the same place, why don’t we put them all on the same truck and save on gas and time?
Global Waring people.
Leave the cows and their farts alone. Let the old ladies use their aqua net and if I want to drive a car with an engine the size of a cessna, well…
