Elon Musk Tries to Purchase Amazon on Amazon

After recently overtaking Jeff Bezos as the richest man in the world, Elon Musk has wasted no time looking for new ways to expand his global reach. The world-renowned owner of companies such as Tesla and SpaceX, Musk was seen attempting to purchase Bezos’ company through the site itself.

Stopping for his usual morning coffee at a favorite café in Austin, Texas, local resident Benny Shleem noticed Musk sitting in the corner with his laptop open.

“It was a total shock.” said Shleem. “I never expected to see Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, just sitting right there. I was curious about what he might be working on, of course, so I waited for my coffee while sneakily peering over his shoulder. I noticed he was on Amazon.com, which I thought was interesting. Then I could see him typing the word “Amazon” into the search bar, hitting enter, scrolling, going back, and then doing it again. He must have done this ten times before opening a new tab. Then I watched him Google “Purchase Amazon with Amazon Prime?” and “Does Amazon come with free shipping?” He scrolled through a couple of pages, but I could tell he was getting a bit frustrated. It was kind of cool, because I could totally relate to the way he was feeling. It’s really frustrating when you can’t find what you’re looking for on Amazon. They’re supposed to have everything.”

It has been a hard year for a lot of us, and this harrowing account is a clear demonstration that even the world’s richest man is not immune to daily struggle.

  1. Don’t want to upset you Jason, but I think Benny Schleem is a crisis actor. Not what he seems. I can’t even spell his name correctly.
    I had a ‘Musk moment’ last year when PayPal declined my purchase of ExxonMobil’s subsidiary in Papua New Guinea. It’s tough out there.
