My attic is dusty and has a plethora of junk in it, but it's a fun place to hang out, learn about authors and listen to an occasional stupid story. If you don't mind the dust, I'd love to have you.
I haven’t posted in a while and I missed you all. I especially missed my sloth who was busy dusting, waiting for me to come home. In case you all didn’t know I was working a seasonal job at the Amazon distribution center. It was a learning experience to say the least. I often wonder how an idea can go from paper to a billion dollar industry in just a few short years. Founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos as an online bookstore, it has now grown to the world’s largest online retailer. It’s one thing to hope and pray your store takes off, it’s another for it to grow to Amazonian size.
The center I worked at was equal to 43 football fields. The logistics alone were astounding! But shoes are shelved with coats with ties with underwear. Most of it seemed to have no rhyme or reason. Everyone had a very specific job and though it was repetitive, it was easy. The days were long but manageable. It was exhausting the first week since my body wasn’t used to all the walking, standing, bending and lifting. I lost 5 lbs the short time I was there. With some jobs you walk up to 15 miles a day. Thankfully that wasn’t my job.
I met a variety of people there. Since it is a warehouse the dress code was extremely lenient. Personalities were reflected in pink, purple or green hair, body piercings and tattoos. Sometimes the weirder ones were those who looked like the average Joe. 99% of those there were in a constant good mood. This has a lot to do with the fact that I’m perpetually happy and the management not jumping down our throats (except for the 2.5 minute walk to our breaks-never bend that rule!). Overall it was a fun, exhausting experience but I’m glad I’m done. I’m glad I’m home. I’m glad I’m in my attic writing this. Do I want to do it next year? Not if I don’t have to. But if I find myself desperate Amazon will be the first place I run to.
