Three boxes are better than one, say Play.com
Barely seconds have passed since we asked for your examples of bad Christmas packaging, when we presented Play.com's efforts as first-rate examples of the genre. First off the starting line this year is avid Bitterwallet reader Matt, and there are no surprises as to who the culprit is:
When I got home last night I received a card from Royal Mail saying that three parcels had not been delivered as they were too big - a bit strange as I only ordered three £5 stocking fillers from Play.com. So this morning I cycled to the sorting office, with my rucksack on to collect the parcels. I was a little surprised to see the huge stack of packages that the postman gave me.
I wondered if the cat's arse pencil sharpener or the Vibrating Duck I had ordered from Play were larger than expected, but no, it was just the enormous boxes that they put them in. It was actually possible to fit all three items into just one of the boxes with space to spare.
