Trying to get things done quickly is not original to Amazon but they are the race horse leading the pack and driving everybody else to scramble to keep up. Will there ever be a point where we say, “this is as fast as we can go”. What is this fascination with doing things the fastest. People have become spoiled with having things done for them instantaneously. Whatever happened to patience? Whatever happened to a thorough and quality job well done?
What I take from this article are companies (working indirectly for Amazon) are trying to keep up with delivering Amazon packages on time and they are cutting corners to do so namely by rushing and not driving carefully. Does someone have to die because Uncle Joe wants his state of the art convection oven delivered and received NOW along with the 20,000 other customers who ordered the same oven on Prime Day? Such a sad state our society has become.
On the bright side, it takes longer to order a gourmet burger at McDonalds because they make the whole thing fresh off the cooker (that’s if you like McDonalds). Finally, someone saying lets slow it down a bit. We need way more companies doing that.
