I ordered a camera case from amazon.com. It is a rather small case. Well, after a week and a half of wondering just where it went, I trekked over to my school's mail room and asked. It took a it of searching, but it was finally found. Sitting on the shelf with the rest of the large packages.
Yes, whoever had packed my small camera case had put it in a box that was 2'x1'x1'. A VERY big box. I opened it up in front of the mail guy, since he can take the boxes and recycle/reuse them, and we both looked at each other when i reached in and pulled out my camera case, with the same exact thoughts of "what...the...heck."
But, I mean, jeez. Why waste all that packaging...at least they don't use styrofoam peanuts.
