    On Wednesday Amazon is having a huge anniversary sale especially for Prime members. We on the purple side predict some fairly big volume spike.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Depends on the deals but I don't see it being all that special.


    For one Amazon processing has gotten terrible. That one day of orders will likely be spread out over 4-5 days. Also they aren't all day deals. I have prime and would maybe take advantage but I'm not going to be glued to my phone for 1 hour flash deals b

    Wouldn't you be working that day?

    Oh, that's right---you are a part time driver.

    Yes I'll be working and I'm saying that's the problem.


    While if it were an all day deal I could take advantage come lunch time or paid break time I can't be glued to my phone all day looking for while supplies last deals.

    Amazon must be garbage in your area, I've experienced no such delays in processing. Or you order off the wall imported Chinese sex toys.

    I use to be an amazon addict but now ive run out of things to buy on there even if there are crazy deals. Like i have everything under 500$ i could want. Anything else i want is over 500$ and i wouldnt purchase online.

    My last 4-5 things I have ordered that were "prime" have taken anywhere from 1-4 days to even be shipped.

    I bet he still follows the actual methods better than you and doesn't work for "free" on lunch or coming in early and sorting off the clock giving UPS thousands in free labor.

    Kind of like what you do?

    He might be a part time driver but he's probably still doing better than you in that regard.


    Nice attempt at a jab though. Just make sure you're not living in a glasshouse Mr glasshouse.

    He's a hell of a personality on here that's for sure. Guys makes me laugh.

    Amazon isn't the cheapest or the fastest anymore. They've become so big that I think they lost sight of that. There's better deals online elsewhere now.

    I'm most certainly full time.


    He's trying to get a cheap laugh because I take a lot of dead days.

    I'm not a dead day guy but if you can afford it who cares? My wife makes way more than me but I still am the type to just work like I do. I like routine and I like being ahead of the game.

    She always tells me to take a day here or there. It's just the way I was raised with my work ethic from my father.

    I know it would be just terrible, and possibly offend someone, if you displayed an American flag on the back porch/deck of your condo.........

    Amazon gives $1.00 music/video credits if you select no rush shipping. I generally choose it simply because I price watch items and wait for price drops. If you add items to your wish list you can track the prices as they move down. Another helpful site is http://camelcamelcamel.com

    It gives price history on items and when items go on sale by the month.

    But on topic, I already have an option day scheduled for Friday so go ahead and let all those Prime orders be made. I'll be off.

    It is a running joke on this forum that Brownslave likes to take a lot of dead days.
