I can't overstate how nice it is to live in a world where I can have virtually anything delivered to my door just a couple of days after seeing it in a store somewhere and thinking, "I bet this is cheaper on Amazon."
I'd say 90 percent of the things I order arrive without any issues, but if I do run into any problems, they normally fall into the "Who The F*ck Thought That Was A Good Idea?" category.
For example, I once ordered a package from a business in Brooklyn to my apartment in Brooklyn. It somehow ended up in Michigan.
On the day it was due to arrive, I stayed in my apartment for the entire day before I discovered a package slip on my front door that said it wasn't delivered because I wasn't home. I lost a lot of faith in the world that day.
Speaking of a lack of faith in the world: Even if a package is delivered successfully, there's no guarantee a random passerby won't decide he has to see what's inside your box. (It's like Christmas, but for criminals every single day of the year.)
Thankfully, a lot of delivery guys know this, and many of them make an effort to hide your package from prying eyes. Unfortunately, some of them do a lot more harm than good.
Someone should really teach these guys how rugs work.
