I have figured out that Amazon pays attention to my shopping habits – and I do a lot of shopping on Amazon. Love that free shipping that comes with Prime! I get emails regularly offering me their latest deals – interestingly enough, the deals most often relate to things I’ve bought or looked at. But this morning they offered me this great deal on cases for tennis rackets. I thought to myself “What? I don’t play tennis!” Then I remembered – awhile back I bought a bag of tennis balls from Amazon. Uh huh – what they didn’t know was that was a Bailey gift. Bailey is the ball girl in our household. She doesn’t need a racket, she has a mouth and a good eye for following the ball. Amazon, fail!
Amazon also sends me many deals for electronic devices. They know my weakness for electronic devices, obviously, and so they are not so far off on that. But – I have told them repeatedly – Windows 8 drove me to Mac. So don’t be offering me those Windows operated laptops and tablets, because I’ll not be buying them. Got it, Amazon? Not only that, but new electronic devices are not in the budget right now, so just back off.
But oh how tempting some of their offers are. I really need more Kindle books – the 50 or so that are in my Kindle app now probably will only last me a year or so, so I should stock up on more, shouldn’t I? And gosh, some of those instant videos look interesting. And the bamboo sheet set? I looked at those, did not buy, but they would be heaven, wouldn’t they?
And I do like me those cookbooks – although I seem to go to Google for recipes using whatever it is I have that sounds like something I would want, so cookbooks are probably not practical. Not to mention I already have quite a supply. And I have a very nice slow cooker, thank you Kat, so no, I don’t need more of them. Watches? No, that was something I was just curious about but not really thinking about buying, you know. The same thing with jeans – I bought some, I still have them, I don’t need anymore right now. But thank you for thinking of me.
So thank you, Amazon, for thinking of me. I appreciate that you just want me to have the best of what you offer, and that you’ve taken the time to get to know me, to the extent you know me. But for now – I think I have enough.
