Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Yesterday I ran out to a tech call from an older client from whom I hadn't heard from in a while. Turns out that she had a stroke, spent a month in the hospital, then FOUR months in physio/rehab. I got there to fix her television (just bells crappy equipment acting up again.) and she flat out told "I wish the stroke had killed me". I had also planned to take a run on the elliptical yesterday... but that wound up being all the exercise I could I stand. Took a run today though.

I have not made enough of an effort to run this summer. I'm going to need to build back up to my old record (which is 3.5 but without stopping. I took 1 break today.) and then push up again.

Biking! The overpass I normally use to get over the highway is currently closed. So today I doubled back to the previous one, then reconnected to the bike path, and finished the route. I lost about .4 mile. Tomorrow, I'mma just retrace my steps entirely. I hate doing that (cause my brain hates open circuits.), but it'll get me almost a mile and a half more distance.

Argh, saw an obstacle thing at a mall but it was really circuit training. It was

10 squat
10 jump over bar and go under
10 rope wave thingy
10 burpies
10 heavy weight sprint

I thought I did a decent time at 2:16. Later on, a lady did a time at 2:17. I would have gotten a message if I had the best time of that day but none, so I guess someone beat me, grr. I'll try again on Sunday. I want to win whatever it is there, hehe
