Stupid packaging....

SO, I bought two mugs on Ebay. That´s coffee mugs...

Paid bleeding through the nose.

So what does the seller do ?

He wraps each mug in two layers of bubblewrap. Puts the mugs in a thin padded envelope which he puts in another thin padded envelope.

So what do you think happened ?

Take an educated guess.

WT - I thought I had experienced enough idiots today but apperently not.....

My question is, why the hell did you pay bleeding thru the nose for coffee mugs?

the stupidity, unfortunately, doesn't surprise me much...

I had a glass teapot (Bodum Assam for those in the loop) posted to me in a standard A4 envelope from eBay. My postman had red hands!

I'm trying to figure out why you didn't just order two GS mugs instead...

Leaf tea . . . needs a special teapot! The Bodum Assam teapots are designed for leaf tea. Bag tea is generally worse in flavour and in ecology - teabags are made of plastic. Used leaf tea makes good compost!

Do said mugs ship to the UK?
