Every night, before going to bed, I ask the Alexa-enabled Lenovo night clock what the weather will be like. Last night, right after she dutifully announced the oddly mild weather, Alexa informed me that I could tip my Amazon driver $5 by saying, “Alexa, thank you to my driver.”

Currently it is approx 275,000 Amazon drivers (opens in a new tab) supply over a billion (opens in a new tab) Christmas gift boxes and fulfilling the Christmas dreams of consumers and of course Amazon. But what do drivers make of it when they carefully place these precious boxes under our door? Apart from about $20 an hour, not much. Giving one of my drivers a small tip seemed like the least thing I could do.
