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.....

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?
