Snakey shame [read like Sean Connery].

Posted by Diana on July 18, 2008

Either an anaconda shed its skin, or the manufacturers used waaaaaaaaaay too much packing paper….

I’m inclined to believe it’s the latter.

It should be embarrassing for a company, especially in this day and age, to waste such an excessive amount of material.  The products being delivered are not fragile and certainly do not require that amount of extra packaging.  It took multiple recycling bins to house all of that excess.

    That looks like one of those springy snakes that jumps out at you from a tin of “peanut brittle”: The pressure must have been so great that all the packing material was ready to shoot out. It looks like there’s so much stuff that one has to wonder how it could all physically fit into the box in the first place. Perhaps it was vacuum-sealed. Shame on them.

    They were half empty (or full, if you’re optimistic). I think there were bookends and tape. So sad.

    First, there was the Miami Face-eater; then another man ate his room mates’ brain and heart; and now it’s being reported that a woman in NYC wanted
    to eat a police officer and claims she has a “hunger for human flesh”.
    Who’s gonna keep ‘em down. That is of course, unless it is at the expense of someone
    else.

    Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue together with your web site in web explorer, could check this? IE nonetheless is the marketplace leader and a huge component to folks will pass over your excellent writing due to this problem.

  8. In most cases only three or four drops of oil will need to be put
    inside the air connector to keep all internal components of the air compressor tools well lubricated.
    This will help keep your family, and your neighbours from cringing every time you get your tools
    out to do some work. Off-road enthusiast know that when they
    hit the road with their Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee or Jeep
    CJ they should be prepared for anything.
