The backstory: Yesterday, I read a Mac McClelland Mother Jones story about on-line retailers and the inexcusable labor practices of the their warehouse operations and promptly felt bad about on-line purchasing. This is a shame, because most of my clothes and shoes are purchased in this fashion. T, forced to endure my horror, opted to make me feel better about things.
Me: And the warehouses are dreadful…yammer, yammer, yammer. I mean really awful for the workers, whinge, whinge, whinge. I feel bad for shopping on line. Amazon is among the worst but I love Amazon.
T: Oh, I wouldn't worry about it, honey. All that Etsy stuff you buy offsets the karmic damage.
