Amazon's Jeff Bezos rescues a puppy, well sort of

Mashable

Fifty-one-year-old Richard Guttfield told CNBC on Friday his black miniature schnauzer Wilma was taken by an Amazon driver who was dropping off a package of dog food-and that it was only after he emailed Bezos that he heard back from the company.

Per CNBC, Guttfield had a hard time getting Amazon to respond about Wilma's plight - that is, until he emailed CEO Jeff Bezos, a man whose sizable muscles are matched only by his love for lost miniature schnauzers.

"My puppy went lost after an Amazon shipping and delivery and right after a contact to Jeff (Bezos)... we'd some one who was simply lovely who tracked the driver and discovered that our puppy and brought her household", he told CNBC.

Cockroach stuck in woman's ear for 9 days
Florida resident Katie Holley shared how she managed to live 9 days being fully aware that there is a cockroach in her ear. Her medicine drops also had stopped passing through her ear, leading her to think that perhaps earwax had built up inside.

The driver, who is not an Amazon employee, was part of Amazon's network of independent courier companies it contracts for package deliveries. Still, Amazon said it would investigate the incident and that this driver would no longer make deliveries.

"This is inexcusable and does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners", a spokesperson said. "We consider these things seriously and that individual is no longer sending Amazon bundles for that individual shipping supplier". "But low lives will take advantage". "Our homes are all exposed to these drivers and the vast majority of them are great".

He stressed that "It's just a miracle I got Wilma back".
