Amazon Admits That its Drivers Are Forced to Urinate in Water Bottles

[QUOTE] The web giant fessed up that its delivery drivers have limited access to bathrooms, meaning that accusations of them urinating in bottles or elsewhere in public are likely to be true.

I haven't bought anything from Amazon in years because they treat their employees like shit. Please join me, until the poor bastards unionize.

I won’t be buying from Amazon now that I know their drivers are handing me boxes molested by pee pee hands.

Amazon Is Buying Dead Malls to turn them into distribution centers.

Amazon converted about 25 shopping malls into distribution facilities.

The Wall Street Journal reported last summer that Simon Property Group, the nation’s biggest mall owner, was in talks with Amazon to turn Simon’s anchor department stores into Amazon distribution centers. Those talks reportedly focused on converting stores formerly or currently occupied by J.C. Penney and Sears Holdings, both of which have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and announced plans to close dozens of stores across the country.

UPS reveals plan to buy hundreds of helicopter-like electric aircraft to buzz around cities delivering packages

Can Amazon be far behind?

I wonder if the pilots will have to pee in bottles.

Why can't delivery vans have tiny bathrooms like RVs? How hard is this?

Amazon have always been mean about their employees' bathroom breaks.

Why don't they buy a male urinal like a normal person or a salesman's friend another device for those who travel by car or truck for work. I did notice in a 7-11 a UPS driver was allowed to use the employee's bathroom.

Ironically, you can buy Portable Urinal Bottles on Amazon.

by Anonymousreply 12Last Wednesday at 3:32 PM

I honestly don't see any problem with it. They can deliver their filled-up bottles on my doorstep anytime.

by Anonymousreply 13Last Wednesday at 3:33 PM

For a male delivery driver I don’t see what the problem is if it’s just for urination. Do you know what a pain in the ass it is to find parking for that truck let alone a bathroom that is available to for you to use? God forbid if there’s a line! Truckers pee in bottles all the time. I would too if it meant getting my work done quicker and getting home sooner!

It isn't just really Amazon, but all sorts of delivery persons including UPS and FedEX have same issues. Many places that once offered free use of restrooms such as restaurants, shops, and even apartment buildings (at least those with doormen and other staff do have restrooms), started tightening things up even before covid-19.

Once the pandemic hit and places were either forced to shut down or out of other fears public bathrooms have become scarce. Starbucks (always a favorite spot to find a bathroom) were largely either closed, or took their restrooms out of service. Apartment buildings put entire areas off limits to anyone but staff or residents.

Things are worse for guys from Fresh Direct, Amazon, Door Dash, etc... because (and it does pain me to say this) many are minorities and places just won't let them further into building than necessary.

Here in my part of Manhattan tons of Mexicans who have been put out of their other work now do deliveries for Door Dash or whatever. They just pee between parked cars, down in building stairwells, against buildings......

Have long seen Uber and other ride share drivers simply get out of their vehicle and piss right next to same.

It’s still downright disgusting. Something must be done about this travesty.

Don't even think about your work life or dare contemplate that there could be a better way. You're going to make things mighty difficult from the C-Suite brass up top.

Anyone else think Jeff stepped away because he got wind of some shit coming down hard on Amazon?

by Anonymousreply 20Last Thursday at 7:37 PM

Ive worked in transportation planning, if they have drivers doing regular routes they can establish layover locations where there are public restrooms and space to safely park vehicles. This requires the correct technology, planning and scheduling done by local employees, and the workers need a union. If lowly funded transit systems can manage it, Amazon surely can. They just need to get off their ass.

I have never purchased anything from Amazon. And hope to never do so.

I feel guilty purchasing a once-a-year product at Whole Foods that I cannot find elsewhere. (I used to shop at WF prior to Besos overtaking it....and the quality of many of its stores plummeting.)

by Anonymousreply 22Last Thursday at 8:54 PM

How do you actually piss in a bottle without getting all over the place? In an emergency, I tried pissing in a Vitaminwater bottle with a good wide opening and it was tricky and nearly got on the car floor. Do you have to find so crazy wide bottle or just have very careful aim? So, this isn’t a humblebrag, but an honest question.

What do the female drivers do?

by Anonymousreply 24Last Saturday at 1:22 PM

R24, the female drivers are smart enough to figure out to go to the bathroom when they deliver something to a convenience store, public library, municipal center, gas station, etc. There are gas stations on every corner all over the country. Why can't they use those?

Honestly, since their workers seem to continuously vote against unionizing, I'm starting to not care about their little travails.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Saturday at 1:31 PM

Op and yet they voted against unionization. What fuckery did Amazon use?

by Anonymousreply 26Last Saturday at 1:55 PM

The fear of Amazon shutting down the facility and moving somewhere else, R26.

Surely it is dangerous to drive a great big truck and pee into a bottle at the same time?

Suggest you searh XVideos or any porn site to see just what some guys get up to when driving a truck. Peeing into a container is least of things.....

Well as said above how do all the other companies do it including USPS? Do they in the middle of their route have to run back to a postal office? And what if you have suddenly out of the blue feel a sudden churning magma eruption coming on? Does this mean the Amazon packages are covered by the bacteria replicating genital sweat of some fat homely driver? And what about the women? Do they crouch between cars?

by Anonymousreply 32Yesterday at 3:59 AM

In urban areas USPS is like everyone else, dependent upon local businesses or maybe private office or apartment buildings for access to restroom. That or if they can mange to hold things until reaching any post office, they can use those facilities.

Don't think many on DL realize there are tons of jobs where you don't have access to a restroom during working hours. Law enforcement (when out on patrol), parking enforcement agents (ditto), bus drivers (if they layover near a NYC subway station they can use facilities there), and so it goes.

Then you have various service or trades person who are out in field or working in people's homes, a business, etc... Some don't mind, but many people will not allow a plumber, contractor, repair person or similar in their home to do a job use of their facilities.

Many banks in NYC have security guards to sit in ATM lobbies overnight to keep the homeless from setting up camp. There aren't any bathrooms in those lobbies, and bank proper is locked up tight until next business day. I wonder where they "go", in particular late/overnight when everything shuts down.

Ever wonder about all those Paki or other immigrants out selling fruit or have food stands for eight, twelve or more hours per day?
