Customer sent packing, and a lot of it

14 October 2010

Yes, yes - we know some of you don't give a chocolate sod about excess packaging and will piss and moan regardless of whatever we show you, but there's little argument to be had in this instance.

Avid Bitterwallet reader Laurie ordered a shower hose from Bristan, and it arrived in this box, filled with air bag packaging to stop it rattling about. Sweet muscular Jesus. Let the pissing and moaning commence:

    Maybe it's a grower not a shower?

    I can top that by a country mile. I had a sticker (with a serial number on it) about the size of a post-it sent to me in a box about 1/2 size of the box pictured. It was bubble wrapped and cocooned in several layers of envelope and was posted from a popular scanning software company in the USA to me in the UK. This happened twice! so must have been standard practice! My poor planet........meh

    I had one twice the size from Bristan. It contained a pair of radiator valves in loads of shredded paper. I think they just wanted to dump their rubbish!

    Am I alone in not giving a shit? As long as the planet's resources last for another couple of decades it should see me out nicely.

    We use Bristan as a supplier for our customers. The management are aware of the excessive use of packaging, but we have discovered that they don't give a toss about customers.

    Sadly I didn't do anything, other than read The Borg's post as saying "who gives a toss" instead of fuck. I suppose I better correct my post: Lots of us “give a fuck”, so why not toss off, you selfish fucker? (to the borg, not Paul).

    Do you smell better, now the shower is working?
  • Paul
    Aww, man. I just told our rep about this and he might think I'm the other Paul. :(
