To admit what a whirlwind the past few weeks have been, would be a misconception. Truly, the weeks have been mind numbing slow moving. The only relief seems to be obtained by clearing the mind and keeping busy with reading endless Amazon reviews. Odd that my ‘big girl job’ would punish you for online shopping, and I finally found the job I could do it endlessly. I though perhaps I should start writing down the oddest items I receive back as a return to grade. Coffee filters bigger than me, college textbooks with love letters, cat lasers that don’t amuse, dog toys dogs just don’t like…
Finding oddities leads to reading the reviews about them. People seem to love the vendetta the can create by typing their opinon. “I hate you Amazon!”, they will constantly leave in the comment box, “why can’t you ever get it right?!”, or my favorite “now I have to deal with a crying child who’s Christmas you ruined!”.

The other campers have all but given their blood in undying devotion to Amazon. In lesser words, they have all signed up to work for them again next year. To say I was surprised would be an understatement. They virtually all can exist without Amazons direct deposit… why agree to come back to this soul sucking place? For an instant they made me feel foolish, “to have in just in case for next year!”, or “you’ll think it wasn’t that bad next year!”. I had that moment of thinking “maybe I should jump of the bridge too,” but then remembered I live in a truck, not a $300k rv, so it was a lot easier for me to say no thanks to signing my life away.
Sorry for all the dramatism, but every day I stand in one spot for 10 hours dealing with Americans unwanted crap, and all I have to pass the time is reevaluating all my life choices. So I am confident in saying ✌🏻 out Amazon, next year I’ll do just about anything.
