    When I order something from Amazon, I always get a reminder that there are three amazon locker locations that I can pick up my order.

    Hmmm, do I want it delivered right to my door or do I want to drive to some place to pick it up?

    Why in the hell would I want to have it delivered to some locker? If I order a dildo, I'm going to own it.

    I just get it (whatever I ordered, not a dildo) shipped to my job. I've had a delivery every day this week. :yes:

    Are they doing the one-day or same day thing in your zip yet?

    I haven't tried it yet.

    I don't think so. Nothing has been offered.

    I haven't seen it yet, but maybe I haven't necessarily been looking for it.

    I haven't received a package from the warehouse they built in my town, yet. They have had employees there for a while, but I think they are hiring in stages, and not going live until they are fully staffed. I still have my fingers crossed for a will call window.

    So they are turning into a store, the thing that they started out replacing.

    I have no idea. It wouldn't be any browsing though, just a place to pic up your order. The McMaster-Carr warehouse (industrial supply) in the same complex has a will call window. Anything from an electric motor speed controller to snap together coolant tubing waiting to be picked up an hour after I order it, 3miles from my house. I'd much rather have a will call window than drone delivery.

    I thought the locker is for people that aren't home during the day and don't feel like having their package sit on their front step all day waiting for someone to steal it or get damaged by weather. Also some apartments and condos don't accept packages at the office and carriers won't leave the packages on the doorstep without a signature in some cases.

    I think that's what it is but that didn't make for a good thread. Lots of thefts at people's doors at Christmastime too.

    We always order our K-cups online in bulk because it's cheaper that way. We could tell someone opened one of the boxes that was left on our doorstep but must not have ben happy about the contents so they left it there half busted open.
