The mail room guys at my company get a kick out of me because I’ve had several deliveries a day for the past week or so. They think I have a side-gig as a personal shopper. I have boxes and boxes stacked in my cube from Amazon, Zappos, Design Within Reach. Does anyone else have this problem? I don’t want packages shipped to my home address because, duh, no one’s home. I’m at work all day long.
I don’t go to the mall. I don’t browse. I don’t wait in line anywhere. I do 80% of my shopping online. I buy so many books—books for me, friends, kids, everyone. I buy shoes from Zappos. A new hairdryer, a lamp, handy toolkit presents for my neighbors from Amazon. Look Ma, not tax!
It’s totally embarrassing, especially when the same mail guy came a second, then third time around. “Another package, huh? Either it’s Christmastime or you’ve got a bad shopping habit.”
