Is this a "prime" example of Amazon's customer service going to "pot?" An engaged couple in Florida found themselves in a "sticky" situation recently when they ordered some plastic storage bins from the e-commerce giant and wound up receiving 65 pounds of marijuana. "We love Amazon and do a lot of shopping on Amazon," the couple, who wished to remain anonymous, told a local news outlet.
"We were still pretty fearful our home would be broken into and we didn't sleep there for a few days." The weed, which was sent from Amazon's Warehouse Deals via UPS from a Massachusetts facility, has a street value as high as $190,000. Meanwhile, the couple--which quickly turned the weed over to police--claims they spent more than a month trying to reach a resolution with Amazon, but were given only a $150 gift card and never got to speak to a supervisor.
"There was no concern for a customer's safety," the couple says. "I mean, this could have turned into a worst-case scenario." Hey, Amazon: That's definitely not very "kind" of you, "bud."
