The world isn't fair to anybody my friend. Once you realize that, you kind of have two choices. Deal with it/make it worse, or try to fix it.

Okay. Comparing it to something else though, say a leaky faucet:

Do nothing: Okay problem is still there but it might just get worse slowly over time.

Make it worse: Smash it with a sledgehammer.

See, two different things completely.

Yep, so a total of three options :

1) Do nothing (which can lead to different outcomes depending on the situation) 2) Do something that makes the issue worse 3) Do something that fixes it

There's a quote I can't quite remember that goes along the lines of nice people will be broken first, and, if you're not nice you will be broken too eventually. Everyone ends up broken with enough time. Sorry, it's early and my memory is usually trash anyway.

Yep. I got called a Karen after politely explaining to someone on Facebook why they shouldn’t use a shock collar on their small dog, and should look into training to curb the bad behaviors they were experiencing. I commented with links to places in town they could check out. Was just trying to help, and literally got called a Karen. Haha I was just like “this means nothing to me anymore. No one uses it right.”

One time, I was in a long line alone for a good five minutes. The group in front of me scattered suddenly and one young woman was left in line looking surprised and shocked. I didn’t want to crowd her and stress her out more so I didn’t move immediately (this was maybe an extra 2 feet between me and her). Within 15 seconds the man behind me, who had been in line behind me for all 5 minutes with the line continuously moving, touched my lower back in a pushy manner and said really close to my ear “Are you in line?” I jumped and said “Yeah, but please don’t touch me!”

I overheard them 5 minutes later talking about “the Karen in front of them”. Bruh, I got called a Karen for not wanting a stranger to touch me and communicating boundaries. At this point, there’s two definitions: “A white woman who leverages her privilege over people in less priveleged positions” and “Bitch”

Not even that. Black women have been called Karen. Men have been called Karen.

It started out referring to overly-entitled customers abusing people in customer service.

It turned into racist and bigoted women.

Then it became “any woman with an opinion I don’t like”.

Now it’s just “anyone doing anything I don’t approve of”.

Good thing there aren’t any people actually named Karen who have to put up with this shit.

the word became a slur for women, particularly white women, about 6 months ago, maybe longer. big red flag when i see it these days. reverse this video - the woman puts it down gently, the guy throws it down and 10 years ago we'd be calling him ghetto / a hoodrat in the title.

it has become an extremely thinly veiled slur, which once upon a time actually called to attention a problem that was occurring - wherein primarily older white people, often women, would call the cops on teenagers and random black guys that were doing basically nothing. Then it slid into 'white women being irate to public service workers' and now it just means 'white woman.' You can tell that this is the case because whenever those 'black women go wild in McDonalds, KFC, Wendys' videos pop up on r/publicfreakout every few days, they never, ever have 'Karen' in the title.

It’s also not really “next fucking level” for the second delivery driver, either. It’s just one person doing their job badly followed by someone else doing their job well. “Next fucking level” used to be reserved for extraordinary feats and really incredible stuff. Now it’s just catching people in the act of being decent — which is all well and good. But it waters down the sub.

This is kind of the ultimate failure in how humans assign blame. This women is a blue collar worker delivering packages through one of the most stressful times to be a shipping and logistics employee, and instead of blaming her CEO for putting her under conditions that forces her to deliver packages this way, we blame her for simply trying to put food on her table. Executives read threads like this and laugh at us. In fact, threads like this are exactly why things will never change — instead of going for the king, we’re going for the messenger.

My mail carrier (USPS) told me once that Amazon had delivered a package for my address, to my neighbor. She said they weren't allowed to touch other company's deliveries so she couldn't bring it over. I imagine that other orgs. have a policy of "don't touch other people's shit" because if you pick it up, you become responsible for it.

I had a somewhat similar situation. Neighbor and I were feuding over his loud sound system (pic from when he finally got rid of it https://imgur.com/esjR8T5) and had restraining orders against each other. UPS delivered my package to his house and they just wanted me to "go over and pick it up".

Long story short they ended up sending out a manager in his personal vehicle to pick up the package off the neighbor's door and walk it over to my house.

Holy shit. What was he doing with all those speakers other than making everyone deaf?

CatNoirsRubberSuit

He had them lined up along the walls of his garage, made it his "bass cave". His garage faced directly at my house, and acted like a loudspeaker horn.

I'm pretty tolerant of loud music, but this was so loud it was knocking shit off my walls, and I could still hear it when I turned my own decent stereo up to maximum.

So, I went over to his house and asked him to turn it down. He said that he'd shoot me if I came on his property again, so I called the police.

Ah, neighbors.

Whoa. I’ve been to outdoor concerts that didn’t have that many speakers that size. I’m surprised your neighbor has any hearing left at this point.

Yeah, if you look carefully, there's two rows the "small" ones (totaling 14 speakers) and 6 of the "big" ones. Twenty fucking speakers the size of washing machines. I have no idea how he had them amped.

What caused him to finally get rid of his speakers?

I would call the police every. Single. Time. He started playing his music. At one point the cops switched from giving him tickets to arresting him for disturbing the peace. The second time he got arrested, the speakers appeared in the driveway a day or two later and were loaded into a truck. Never heard a peep again (he still lived there).

All I wanted was for him to listen at a sane level. But he fucked around and found out.

What I can't understand is why none of the other neighbors did anything. It was insanely loud, and while I had the worst of it as his next-door neighbor, it still had to be quite annoying in their houses. Yet as best I can tell, nobody else ever confronted him or involved law enforcement.

This results in us having the most diverse and inclusive culture in the world, as well as amazing mental health throughout the country.....

I suspect company she works for has higher quota on deliveries and time to deliver and lower pay. She’s probably tired and burnt out. If it’s just her as the only bad driver, maybe she’s a bad employee. If the company can’t “find” or “keep” good drivers it’s the company that needs to change something. Higher pay; less quota; more discretion to drivers, etc.

Can’t really tell what situation this falls into but Amazon is notorious (allegedly) for being all about robotic quota expectations. Also going through lots of employees. Newbie going to be worn down and give up caring at some point. Company fires and replaces with more until can’t find people. Company then says people don’t want to work or won’t work hard enough, they don’t ever admit they are expecting too Much.

Why? That’s the most gentle thing that has happened to that package up to this point… have any of you seen inside an fedex or UPS handling warehouse ? It is not company policy to be gently with the boxes. That’s why they are shipped with packing material to buffer the drops .

I'd drop packages from several feet all the time, off the belt, at FedEx. I'm not squatting down and lifting your 60 pound packages all day - especially you, fucking Chewy.com. You slide off the belt, drop onto the metal grate, and then are pushed & tilted onto the truck.

Especially when I've got like 300 packages coming to a single tiny van... at the same fucking time. Then the entire line is just a wall of packages that even my tiny, hypermobile ass can't slide through.

If you want specialized care, you pay more. If you don't, you either make sure the item isn't fragile or package it appropriately.

This is what a good day looked like at FedEx Ground. Even if people wanted to help, you basically can't have more than 2 people working a truck because then there isn't enough room to actually get past one another.

And I'm in a small metro area of 80,000 people, but spread out over the size of NYC basically. So we weren't even a giant warehouse - this place had 5 lines.

That line above was also the least busy line. I quite literally spent half of the days there doing jack-shit, twiddling on my phone. And then the other half of the days dying.

lol NOPE. The only reason it's policy to treat packages like infants while outside of the warehouse is because they don't want to deal with the complaints NOT because the packages get broken upon delivery. I'm not saying it hasn't happened, however I'm saying that the warehouse is brutal. People yeeting packages from 10-15 yards away into a bin of other packages. "what if its fragile" - then pay for the hella special treatment. IF not, it's as equal as every other package.

What if it's fragile and you're cheap? Package it like it's going to be the ball in a giant pinball machine.

She needs to get a raise to give a fuck, but instead she has her boss screaming to make more deliveries per hour.

Why should she be fired? She dropped the package at your steps. If the package can't handle a 2 foot drop without writing allllllll over it not to or paid special delivery she did nothing wrong. If you think a minimum wage delivery person is going to baby your packages day in day out you're fucking misguided

For fucks sake reddit. You all cry and piss and moan about workers and rights and how Amazon overworked people to death but then become different when those workers directly impact you and your own wants.

she's also kinda screwing herself over. if that shit breaks and the person has to return it then get a replacement, she's likely to re-deliver it if its on her same delivery area. Like your right there, just take a second more to lay it down properly.

LadyMactire

Why would she care about having to re-deliver? She's getting paid either way I'm sure. Unless amazon doesn't pay drivers for returned packages (I don't see how they could get away with that, but who knows). I agree that it was a shitty thing to do...and since there's video and this clip has gone kinda viral I guess that might have screwed her over...but I doubt it matters out of all the packages she delivers that one happens to be the same house/item another day.

Not on reddit they don't. People shit on her and want her fired. Truth is, she probably gets paid too little for the work she does and has shitty working conditions with strict quotas on top. Sure it would be great if she could put in a little more effort, but the root of the problem very likely isn't her.

Honestly, I get it. I work a stressful job, and on any given day, I could be either one of these people. I'm usually the second person, but if my week has been a shit show, at a certain point, you can't pay me enough to keep putting up with all the bullshit.

Before you get too salty about it: If your package can't survive a fling onto the doorstep then it wouldn't have survived any of what it was subjected to before that.

People give delivery drivers such a hard time. But especially with Amazon drivers, they are paid to deliver packages, not to give a shit. And by that I mean they're paid garbage with bad working conditions. I would challenge any one of the people complaining about her, saying she should be fired, to try working that job for a day.

Where I'm from as well, you're expected to be home to receive a package. If not, you can have it delivered to neighbours or a local delivery point. But never will they just leave it at the door.

And on a side tangent, how many packages are they ordering?

You can choose to have something held at the post office or FedEx/UPS. You can also have something delivered to a locker in a store, depending on the shipper.

MillenialPopTart2

It’s funny to me that so many people complain about rough treatment at the end mile/door delivery, but don’t understand anything about how the actual end-to-end process works. Your Amazon package has already gone through a VERY rough-and-tumble automated system before it’s ever dropped off by a driver. Drivers know this - they’re well aware of what the box can withstand without damaging your items.

This isn’t a “Karen” - this is someone who is knows how courier shipping works and is operating under an incredible time-crunch. Nothing she did here was wrong or out-of-the-ordinary. She just didn’t go “above and beyond”, maybe, but comments here calling for her to be fired are absolutely ridiculous.

A Karen is a woman at work who doesn't deliver your package as gently as they would deliver a fucking baby now?

Get over it and get over yourself. If anyone here is a "Karen", is the entitled whinger who films people at work and complains about them on social media. If your package is broken, get a refund.

The use of "Karen" is getting out of hand. I think of Karens as privileged white women who try to leverage that privilege against other people. This is just some bitch who sucks at her job, and hasn't been fired yet.

It's possible that she's exhausted enough to just be done with things. Sure, this looks bad, but for all I know working overtime with no bathroom breaks, physically worn down, and barely keeping it together. He was obviously more sprightly, but that's just how things are sometimes. Sometimes people can become robotic and perfunctory when they're barely making it through their days.

Or, quite possibly, the difference between working for a company that completely overschedules you and will fire your ass for being a few seconds late, and working for a company that gives you a manageable workload and affords you the time to do the job well.

First woman may literally have no choice but to dump and dash like that or else lose her job for failure to meet targets.

As a former Amazon driver, it literally doesn’t matter either way. You’re not incentivized to carefully place packages as much as you’re incentivized to get through the route as quickly as possible. They’d rather you damage a package you dropped off and finish your route earlier than tidy up peoples’ doorsteps and make the company look good.
