"Hello, is that Dell? I'd like to order 65 screws please."

Dell screws

That's right. An envelope per screw. Fortunately Dell chose to save on postage and send all 65 envelopes together. Thoughtful, see.

    Whats the problem here? Dell have conveniently separately packaged each screw so Mark - should he need to send a gift as valentines day is coming up - doesn't have the hassle of having to separate each screw and wrap it up. You just can't please some people.

    Dell is owned by jews and jews are gay

    Why the hell is someone ordering 65 screws from Dell anyway ???? Check out Dells website for the official description: Screws are used to hold objects together. Screws come in a variety of shapes and sizes for different purposes depending on the type of system. Please note that this replacement product is refurbished. Refurbished screws - Class !

    Looks like a cheap way to get padded envelopes to flog stuff on ebay?

    Presumably they are stored in a warehouse somewhere already in the envelopes, so to send one all they have to do is slap a shipping label on them. The majority of people must just but them one at a time, to replace one they've lost probably. Still doesn't make it any less retarded though, all 65 could have fit in one envelope!
