Occasionally we get things we have ordered from Amazon.com in the mail. I wonder how many of their customers bother to thank them for sending their orders so promptly. Most companies store their merchandise in warehouses that are usually located in cities. Amazon's warehouses are located in the Amazonian rain forest which is why the company is called Amazon. Those workers have to trudge through the jungle to get to work and mail the packages. That takes nerve to know that you could meet a cobra, a tiger, or a lion--not to mention a cute little poison dart frog on the way to work. Most employees do not have to go through such hazards just to get to work. Next time you get a package from Amazon.com, be sure and thank them for their perseverance. It takes dedicated employees to go through so much to get to work and then have Walmart declare war on them every few days. Amazon employees are a brave group!
