Are they trying to tell me (Susan) something?
It was a difficult day at work. Since I’d recently ordered a package through Amazon, I thought it might boost my spirits if it was waiting at home for me. I logged on to Amazon and the redesigned home page said:
“Don’t worry it gets worse.”
“All my friends are engaged.”
“Maybe I should drink more.”
At that point, I started thinking maybe I should. I also felt uneasy that Amazon could read my mind that afternoon. Then I noticed the little tag line that said based on my previous purchases, Amazon recommended the following books. Yes, these are the titles of actual books.
On the upside, Amazon also thinks I need “101 Secrets for your Twenties.” Score!
Apparently the recommendations are fickle. The next time I logged in, Amazon recommended a combination of Western romances and Hank the Cowdog tales.
I am a woman with many facets.
