Carl Freeman, a 43-year-old Homo sapien inhabiting Nashville, Tennessee, objected to being treated like an animal at the Amazon shipping center where he works.
"Management sees us as mere commodities," said an irate Carl regarding the attitude the global corporation takes toward its employees. "They herd us in there like chickens and all they care about is how much money they can make off of us and how fast they can do it. It's extremely objectifying."
Freeman added that if he actually were an animal, the company's utter lack of concern for his well-being and its emphasis on profits over ethics would be totally understandable.
"Just business," he said. "Nothing personal. What're you gonna do?
When it was pointed out to him that, as a human, he himself, in fact, belongs to a species of animal, Freeman only shrugged.
"You get what I'm saying," he said. "I'm talking about regular animals. You know. The kind we eat."
