    Good, maybe we will be able to provide service to our other customers instead of having them blow the crap out of our system

    20,000. That's a lot of package cars. It's worrisome. I don't think UPS, FEDEX,USPS and the minor carriers can do much if they deliver just Amazon packages. However, when I was young AT&T & Microsoft got broken or split up because they were a monopoly. Amazon (even though I shop there) is starting to dominate in e-tail, music, video, grocery and now trying for delivery.

    It's my feeling the government needs to step in on their :censored2: and quit this global domination. They're only 23-24 years old.

    I saw this on my area the other day, the driver was delivering Amazon packages. I looked up the website and it said they had 100 routes running out of north Atlanta near one of the Amazon warehouses. A company called LazerShip used to deliver Amazon, I haven't seen any of them recently. This is a new Nissan van. The day after I took this photo, I saw the passenger side of the van. It was dented up from the front to the rear bumper.fullsizeoutput_7a9.jpeg

    I’ve seen their brand new vans in Charlotte, dented in the middle. And their drivers LOVE to be yapping on their phones.

    They'll survive as long as they can continue to find some poor slug willing to work for 9 bucks and hour and zero benefits
