    Default Packaged Arrived Safely! LOL

    I needed a good laugh today. UPS just delivered my package from Kohls..... a small piece of jewelry in a small white gift box, packed in a gigantic box with lots of bubble wrap and additional paper!

    I'm not complaining. The little box was quite safe sitting inside this huge box, with no chance of getting lost on the truck. It just made me giggle.

    lol, Well protected!

    Mike and I used the food sealer to 'suck 'em up' two gifts we sent to my BILs. They easily fit into a medium sized envelope. We wrote silly messages on the outside of the bags. Dot will wrap them or stick them in gift bags when they get to IN.

    it does make you wonder, but at least they stuffed the big box enough. running out of boxes or not wanting to go get the right size. the post office doesn't really like really small boxes though. no worries with your order!

    Maybe a large light weight box was less likely to get stolen than a small one saying I might be valuable.

    I just dropped off a package at Fed Ex and they didn't like the way I had it packaged. They redid it and did not charge me! It gets even better the man gave me a 20% coupon and took it off the shipping today. It was some presents for my sister and the funny thing was I had two dog toys wrapped in colored tissue paper ( the dogs can open this themselves). She said that she put them in a plastic bag incase something got spilled on them. I find that really odd how could something get spilled on them inside a cardboard box? Oh well I let her do her thing and I was happy it was free.

    Way better than Kohls packed my order a couple of years ago!

    I ordered two Hallmark ornaments (along with several other items) on Black Friday and the ornaments were thrown into a giant plastic envelope. They arrived crushed (no wonder). Since that whole fiasco (starting with them taking the money from my account for products they no longer had in stock or intended to get in stock) I have boycotted them. That was all bad enough but at this time of year, for me to *think* that my grandson's Christmas gifts were taken care of, only to find they weren't, just pushed me over the edge with them.

    Too funny! I guess they feel like bling deserves the best!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    A few years ago someone shipped a case of wine for a present (to someone else.) Our UPS conveyor belt is 3 feet below the rollers that roll the packages off the truck. Someone wasn't paying attention and didn't notice several of the bottles broke. It rolled on the belt to the end and landed in the bin - on top of a box they were delivering to me - yep my box was soaked. The contents were in a baggie so I had no problem with damaged contents. It can happen.
