NBC Boston reports.
Can't wait for my milk to be delivered by drones.
Or the mailman
Or the UPS guy
Or the FedEx girl
Or the Uber driver
Curious about something. Does Amazon's tracking system accurately reflect who delivered the package or is it a mix and match. USPS delivers it to the local post office, but a Uber drive actual delivers it to the door. The tracking receipt states "Delivered by USPS."
USPS delivers it to the local post office, but a Uber drive actual delivers it to the door.
Don't think that ever happens. In all these collaborations, USPS generally does the last mile. I.e. amazon/fedex/ups delivers to your local post office who then delivers to your home. See UPS SurePost and FedEx SmartPost.
You would have guys stealing whole cows off of people's doorsteps.
your milk may turn into yogurt by the time the drone delivers it.
Free range organic sustainable locally-sourced kale dash buttons.
I support local farms that make an effort to grow food without pesticides. There's already enough chemicals in our food, soil, water and oceans. Know any farmers? I do. They bust their ass to make a living. People like you who mock farmers because they grow produce like kale, arugula or what have you, crack me up... you would cry like a little baby if you ever had to do a hard day's labor.
But the people who drone on about how great it is annoy me.
For the record, 2 of my cousins are dairy farmers, as were 4 of my uncles (though 2 were technically my aunts' husbands). It's hard work, but if they made artesianal cheese, I'd mock artesianal cheese all the same.
up another (failing) horrible company.
I love Amazon. Ans I really love that Amazon is driving some really horrible companies into obscurity.
Amazon has used their scale and technology to crush any market they see fit. It's good for the consumer when Amazon wages a price war, but the prices go up once Amazon corners the market. (Amazon by no means has the best prices on most of their items as they bake in the cost of shipping.) A whole lot of people at the established businesses lose their jobs. From all accounts Amazon treats their employees (programmers & packers) like shit.
I buy plenty through Amazon myself but I'm under no illusions it's a good company.
"Amazon and labor practices" and "Whole Foods and labor practices". That is just a start. And then do a bit of research on "John Mackey*" , current CEO of Whole Foods, and his political views.
(Now if you are a sociopath, and/or love to jerk off to Ayn Rand and/or have wet dreams being a ruthless capitalist, don't bother.)
*Who does not believe Americans have an "intrinsic" right to the basic necessitates of life: food, shelter, healthcare. A real fun loving guy.
little capitalist loving heart? I know, I know, today it is so darn hard being a master of the universe with all those liberals with their fake news dragging you down. Love you, Bro.
You can make political arguments without going into the sewer.
Fuck your feelings.
Which of those 2 people are on uhub?
Because they didn't cave to demands to give all workers a $5/hour increase? If you take a job that pays $12/hr it seems a bit much to demand that your salary be near-doubled, no? And yes--they're anti-union just like every other supermarket in the universe. I'd hardly say it makes them a horrible company, unless you have a bunch of other
exemplary businesses you'd compare them to?
So I meant "increased by near 50%." The point stands, no?
That people who work full-time shouldn't expect to be able to support themselves?
Yes, the point still stands.
I'm gonna buy stock in companies that make cardboard boxes, plastic air-bag cushioning, and padded envelopes!
The Koch Brothers own Georgia Pacific which has it vampire octopus tentacles in every part of the paper and packaging paradigm.
I would yell you to use only Rand Whitney boxes, they are privately held though, but locally made. They are owned by Mr. Blue Shirt / White Collar Himself; Robert Kraft.
anymore? I know Bill Clinton gutted them back in the 90s.
We do, but Amazon acquired them in 2008 and bundled them into it's prime streaming social values services. You have to opt into them under your preferences.
Harvest is struggling according to the Globe. Maybe its time to go back. I already keep it local with Roche Bros. and my purchases from WF are about 4x a year and are only flowers. How you can trust a grocery store that won't stock Diet Coke?
If you care about local businesses maybe its time to stop this pending Bond Villain from taking over everything a shop local as much as you can.
Harvest might struggle a little less if they would keep their refrigerators and freezers at safe temperatures more often. That at least can't really be blamed on other retailers.
And if they didn't move from South St to past Forest Hills. Sure there is more car parking, and still foot traffic, but the getting there by bicycle is terrible - that's why I never go anymore.
why are you buying Diet Coke?
Bottled right here in Needham.
What is the local alternative? moxie?
Polar! Or Tower (root beer).
Market Freakin' Basket.
They got your neurotoxin-havin' Diet Coke. They got the GMO-laden Doritos. They even have an Organic Produce aisle. They also have about 90% of my grocery shopping, with the rest going to farmers' markets and the occasional Whole Amazon trip.
Locally owned, with happy, loyal employees and customers. It's Demoulas' for me.
Uhhh, I bet the percentage of WF shoppers who drink Diet Coke is very, very small. WF is about healthy foods.
Who needs healthy when you can have Doritos?
Wadda ya gonna live forevah?
Lots of jokes on Twitter about the buyout.
Not sure how Whole Foods is only worth 13.7B when that's how much it costs to get your weekly groceries there.
