After years of chasing packages that were “lost” by the post office and/or the maintenance office at the Dee-luxe Apartment in the sky, it is a joy and a pleasure to order from the internet and have the boxes on my doorstep when they are supposed to be. Therefore, one of the first things we did as a homeowner was join Amazon Prime.
And it is niiiiice. It’s especially nice for keeping on top of dog food. Running low on the wet food we mix with the dry food to keep Max interested in eating? Order it and it’s here in two days. That said, Amazon has come up with an idea that I thing pushes things a little far. They’ve come up with Dash Buttons – wee wireless devices that you can stick around your house and when you push the button it connects to your wireless network and orders items for you.
What does this mean?
I can now order Macaroni and Cheese with the push of a button.
Don’t get me wrong – I am as lazy as any other person, but when I see I need more of (item) I am literally only steps away from any of my devices that could do the same thing. And I think a button for something as basic and crappy for you as Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is not good for us AT ALL.
Besides, I only eat classy sides like Velveeta Shells and Cheese.
However, I do think they are missing the boat on a feminine products dash button. I’d slap that widget right in the bathroom and make the rest of the time until glorious menopause arrives easy-peasy. (It can be sponsored by Discovery’s Shark Week. You’re welcome, Amazon.)
Or a Nyquil button to avoid that panic you feel after you’ve slugged down the last mouthful and are now too inebriated to go get more.
