I also really admire the teacher that found a 2YO Audi TT with only 9000 miles on it! What a great find!

Very nice. I feel bad for the Amazon warehouse worker, though. That job is brutal and makes me seriously reconsider whether to use Amazon every time I read stories like that.

Thanks for posting this.  I only read the one about the 78-year old living well on her pension and the one about the guy who works at Amazon.  That sounds like a horrible job.   I'd heard before about stuff like this about Amazon and this just confirms it.
