i do wonder if they really do have monkeys doing this? and im not calling a human a monkey..i really do mean like some kind of chimp..just throwing items into whatever box they feel like...each time they get an order right they get a peanut :roll:

There is a new Amazon Depot here in Swansea - and yes... lots of monkeys working there,

i worked at a council home years ago that ordered a huge set of dinner plates etc , it arrived in a box with NO packaging . it was the noisiest box i have ever heard. lol

Not just Amazon. I bought two Spongebob squarepants keyrings from the Lego website and had the same thing. A little jiffy bag would have been more than enough!

Funniest packaging I have ever seen was when we ordered 130 Microsoft office licenses. They all came in gigantic retail boxes themselves (even though they were just licenses!) which were then in larger packaging boxes, all packed in 3 Massive boxes. I wondered what the hell I had ordered for work that needed about 10 square metres of packaging only to realise what they had done!

Play are the same. Ordered 6 microsd cards and each one came wrapped seperately in its own box (about 5 times bigger than the card packaging). Why oh why did they just not send them all out in 1 package ?

Not the first time with them either !

i bought a ps3 game from ebuyer and they put it in a box twice the size of that. the game si only as big as a dvd case..

With a name like Amazon you'd think they'd be doin' their bit for deforestation.

:lol:

lol I knew play were a bunch of pirates!

hahah!

That's crazy! :w00t:

Amazon once sent me a bare HDD in a box like that but without even that bit of paper for padding, amazingly it worked and still does even after 2 years

Had you not thought that perhaps with everyone purchasing xmas presents that they may have run out of smaller packaging and to prevent keeping you waiting they send in a larger box, they most likely had to pay more to send it as well.
