No, I didn’t feel well. Here in the Bay Area it rained for 14 years. At least, that’s what it felt like.

At that time, I sit and read a book, sit and watch sports, sit on a stationary bike and read a book, and watch sports.
Once a day, I went to my mailbox to see a rogue financial planner, mortgage broker, or real estate agent trying to sell me dirty goods.
All I had was a postcard from a terrible plumber, but there were some Amazon packages on my doorstep.
With a moderately dazed mind, I picked them up and put them inside. He seemed to be ordering books again, a habit he could not stop.
Then I looked at the parcel above and stared at it for a few seconds.
This is a typical Amazon bubble wrap envelope. Inside it was only his one book, a monograph. However, someone at Amazon decided to put it in a plastic bag for a little more protection from the downpour.
Perhaps this happens to you all the time. You probably live somewhere where it rains a lot more than it does here. To me, this simple gesture reminded me of a real human doing something to please other humans, given the weather.
The plastic bags were similar to what you would find in a grocery store for fruit. It was not an Amazon brand. It was a simple clear plastic bag with a knot tied at the top.
So I reached out to Amazon and asked who in the supply chain was responsible for this small act of kindness. were you the driver? In fact, is there any company policy regarding delivering packages in bad weather?
Sadly, I didn’t get a revelation from the company.
Because of our greed and laziness – oh, admit it – we often forget the hard working people. They deliver what we would easily find in stores. I wish I could have moved from the sofa to the door.
They go to work in the warehouse in the rain while we work from home.
They drive vans loaded with surveillance technology to bring hairspray, underwear and household items to the country. Sometimes you don’t even have time to urinate.
Meanwhile, they are also not treated very well at work. Amazon has yet to sell its benevolence as an employer to the world. For some reason, every time I hear an Amazon executive talk, the only emotion it evokes is a shudder.

Still, someone, somewhere, cares about me being lazy at home.
Many people say that brands are made by smart, quirky-dressed ad agency staff.
However, it is often the actions of individual employees that reinforce and sometimes create a positive brand image.
If all companies could treat their employees as if they understood it.
