Friday Funnies

Super Size?
Last week, an order from Amazon came in this size box. Amazon should seriously reconsider its packaging options. A bubble mailer would have worked for small items.
Here's what was in the box — a single "button" battery Grenville ordered for his watch This week, an order of 2 similar sized batteries and an SD memory card arrived in the same size package. I saw customer videos of similar oversize packaging for similar items.

Just wondering — Have you had any super-sized package experiences too?

Enjoy Your weekend, Everyone.

My new Airbuds were shipped in a huge package The buds were in a a tiny little box inside the really big one.

yes this has happened many times. I am thinking they pay the same for any box, as in five per box no matter the size, and just grab what is handy. I have recived tiny things in big boxes, have received yesterday to very large bottle of supplements stuffed so tight in a tiny box they could not move...

I agree, maybe the cost of the box and the envelope package are the same. I sometimes get small things in a big box too. Either way, I like the fact that my orders arrive quickly. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I haven't experienced this in a long time here in Scotland, thank goodness but maybe the postage is calculated by weight and size combined. Just speculating, maybe it is just luck of the draw.

We haven't had anything so small shipped in such a large box. That's pretty wild.

yes, the same problem here - and the same company to blame. It's annoying because you're expecting a package that can be popped through the letterbox.

Yes, we've had it happen, but not quite as extreme as your example.

That is ridiculous.

Jon said...

That is amazing and absurd. Perhaps they thought a smaller package might get lost....or perhaps they ran out of smaller boxes....??

That’s hilarious 😂.

Amazon UK is the same. I get huge parcels and loads of packing paper which I have to unravel in order to give it to charity. I understand the need to protect the goods but this is overkill,

Connie said...

So crazy. What a waste of packaging.

Doris said...

I thought they were working on that....guess not. Good grief, what a waste. I have an order coming in a couple of days, but my items are larger. Maybe the packaging will be more appropriate?? We shall see ☺
