Amazon.com's not that bad! Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

I'm sure you all know of Amazon.com reputation for ridiculous packaging -- you order one CD and it's shipped in a box big enough to hold a body. Anyway, I came home from the Wound Care Center and found a nice, big box of medical supplies for the home health care nurse to use during her visits.

 

It was very light, but that wasn't unusual -- bandaging materials usually don't weigh much. I opened the box, pulled out a lot of packaging material, and found this:

 

Four Mextra Superabsorbent pads, 10x15 cm/4x6 in.

It's already destroyed, Chris! (Didn't take long, either -- he decided it was an evil box mecha.)

No one said the individual packers know what they're doing. Send them the photos and ask WTH?

With Amazon, yeah. I just got done leaving feedback for a couple of packages they sent recently. (I must admit they've gotten a lot better with the packaging.)

However, this came from a medical supply company that the home health care service uses. I don't know if there's any way to send feedback, though I did make sure to show the nurse during her visit the next day.

I would assume they don't get charged postage by box volume.

I know this has nothing to do with packaging, but it is Prime Day and if you're interested, these, um, "pajamas" are for sale.

LOL! Also, you could've gotten the "cow" PJs and gotten free food from Chik-Fill-As!
