February 13, 2006 · File under Things that suck
I buy tons of stuff from Amazon, and here's a brief Amazonecdote. (And an Amazantidote.)
Of late, Amazon has settled on a new packing technique. It's not a very good one. It goes like this:
I approve of the Fill-Air bags. They're very convenient and seem environmentally decent. But this method, as practiced, doesn't work very well.
Just recently now, I ordered a 31 lb slab of cast iron. I recieved a huge unsealed box full of Fill-Air bags. So I contacted Amazon and they shipped me a new one. I received a huge unsealed box full of Fill-Air -- but with the item still in there! I saw the UPS guy carry it in - he looked pretty disgusted by the whole thing.
A collection of posts about things that suck, and posts that suck about things that don't suck.
