    My wife made an observation about that movie once: would a lawyer actually leave a loaded gun in an unlocked cabinet in a hunting cabin he’d only visit every couple months or so, even in Alabama?

    I’ve noticed, over the last few months, that amazon’s Prime service no longer includes weekend deliveries. Order something through Prime on a weekday and more often than not it’s guaranteed for next-day delivery. Order on a Friday and the arrival date is always the following Monday. When did they sneak that one in??

    Haven't seen that in my neck of the woods yet. Maybe it's an area-of-distribution thing? I live in one of the most densely populated areas of the US, and you can't throw a rock without hitting an Amazon distribution center.

    Yeah, I’ve done a bit of digging since and the likelihood is my address is registered as a business. The architect who converted whatever this building was, into the flat/apartment it is now, has his office next door (part of the same building) and I suspect the whole building is registered under his business (no doubt to avoid some form of land / residential tax). If I change the delivery address to my old address, or to an amazon locker, I can get next day delivery. I’ve explained this to amazon and they’ve ‘escalated’ my query.
