Safety in Convenience

May 07, 2020

One of the painful parts of the lockdown was the complete shutdown of all online purchasing. This meant, no Amazon. That isn’t too bad until you realize I do all my shopping on Amazon. From food supplies to computer upgrades, it all comes from the online giant portal.

A month and a half later, when I found out that Amazon was delivering again, you would not imagine how excited I was. I felt a strange sensation of peace run through me.

Surprisingly, it was only a week or so since the announcement that I actually ordered something I needed. It was never about buying anything. It was just about having that convenience.

I’m surprised how crippling I felt the moment Amazon was taken away from me. It was never about needing something from the store, it was just the convenince that I was missing. At this point, I’m not sure what to make of this personal revelation but it sure is a testament to how pervasive and rooted services of tech giants are in our, or at least, my life.
