👋 Before you go

A TikToker recently documented a day in which she tried to game the system at Amazon—only to find out that it didn’t work out the way she hoped.

The video, uploaded by Emily Cason (@_emilycason), has more than 37,200 views. In it, Cason talked at length about her attempt to evade her shift as an Amazon delivery driver.

Cason then explained the “hack” she learned in order to supposedly earn easy money from Amazon. “I heard that if you wait until the very last fuckin’ minute, you might get like a not-so-hard shift.”

That wasn’t the case for Cason, however.
