Cowart's Common Room
Big Box, small package

I know we've mentioned this matter before, but this is a parcel I received yesterday from Viking. There were two parcels for my office, the second box contained just two items of Ecover Hand Soap, rattling around. There was room for them in the other box containing boxes of photo paper etc. if they were well wrapped.
What a waste!

Fennie's Avatar Can you imagine the angry letter they must have had when they did try to pack all together and something leaked? I'm sure they don't waste deliberately. Incidentally, I'm only making this comment to test BTFON because my normal internet has gone AWOL but BT says I can get access via BTFON - but as the FON comes from a small part of my own home hub this message is going down the same telephone wire - just more slowly. I don't understand these things, despite being a Nightshazean. You might say I am Nightshazy about it all.

Westerwitch's Avatar Yup I too can see why they didn't pack the soap in the other box, but not why they used such a huge box and why did they leave them rattling around surely that is begging the bottles to leak.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Wrapped in a plastc bag (recyclable)there would have been no leakage. Or both bottles in a jiffy bag (reusable).

What are you talking about Fennie. Is it Nightshazian language.

Angel's Avatar I laughed at this Rosie.

I should have saved you some of the parcels I've had delivered over the last couple of days. It's ridiculous.
