Amazon.com has got to be kidding me

The good news: The GPS I ordered as a Hanukkah gift for my girlfriend arrived a couple of days earlier than I expected.

The bad news: Amazon.com, which is usually meticulous when it comes to packing and shipping, really dropped the ball on this one.

The GPS was shipped in a box measuring 19 inches by 13 inches by 11 ¾ inches. The actual box that the GPS comes in is a six-inch cube.

The larger box did not contain a single molecule of packing cushion, meaning that the six-inch cube basically bounced all over the place for the entirety of its journey. And there was no receipt or packing list.

I know things are crazed during the holiday season, but this was very weak and very uncharacteristic of Amazon.com. I am truly disappointed and praying that the GPS was undamaged, because I really don’t feel like having to deal with returning it.

    Damn that’s some messed up packaging effort on the part of Amazon.
