  • Another Packing Joke

    Last week I ordered 2 pcs. of 3/32" x 1/2" x 18" tool steel. This is the way they arrived. The box weighs five times the contents. Three deflated whoopee cushions for packing.

    Good help is hard to find. I love it when you order 1 of something and they send you one box that contains four of the said item...

      The bigger the box, the harder it is to lose?

        And the more the shipping cost.

          I get free shipping, but............ it's factored into the price somehow.

                  It could have been worse. I ordered 5 pieces from Amazon and received 5 shipments of one piece each. Free shipping indeed.

                    Once I ordered 100 feet of hose.
                    The order came in at 98 feet.
                    A week later, they sent 2 feet.
                    Freaking crazy.

                      That would trigger my tourettes in a millisecond.

                              Pallets- we got a shipment of materials one day on a pallet made of mahogany. You can bet I kept that one.

                              I ordered some stuff one day from China- in the double wrapped bag came the box for a magnet. No magnet, just the empty box.

                              I've seen a cabinet door handle come in a large box filled with styro pellets. Maybe they didn't have any 6 inch boxes left? Thanks for the 3 cubic feet of pellets.

                              Got a shipment of plywood one day- the cheesy pallet had collapsed, and everything in the truck was jammed up to the front. The driver said he had seen a girl and was checking her out- then had to make a panic stop to avoid having an accident. That was a difficult unload, and the goods were damaged. I don't know why he thought we would cover for him. Never saw him again.

                              I caught the wrath of a delivery girl one day when she saw me making a support base for a garbage bin out of pallets. If they are so precious, why is there a stack of them 8 ft high sitting out in the rain now- with another stack about half that high beside it? Most of them come from her company.

                              No worries though- I expect one day to receive a shipment of pillows protected by bags of weed.
                              I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-
