I did not know that Amazon delivered packages themselves. Everything we ever ordered from there was shipped by UPS or the post office if Amazon handled the shipping themselves & FedEx was also sometimes used when the sellers handled the shipping. I also remember hearing about Amazon using drones a few years ago but they were never used for our stuff.

lol, I thought this was a thread about me, and then I re-read the title.

They just started recently...last year, maybe?
And they're not in all areas, yet.

That's hilarious.

In my area Amazon delivers it, or they have contract drivers in their personal car. Most of the time it's an Amazon van though. The same 2 people usually deliver. They're really nice and always say hi if I'm outside. One gave my dog treats. :heart: and they always follow delivery instructions.

Oh OK. When I 1st started reading this thread I thought it was gonna be about that song by the Steve Miller Band. I had listened to a different song by em shortly before reading this thread.

that should be outlawed.
