Hillbilly Mom Gripes Again















Does anyone else have issues with Amazon.com? Because
everything I get from them arrives like this. I used to think the
problem was with UPS (Unqualified People Shipping).
Anything that came by UPS was smashed. Most of it was from
Amazon. Today I got this Amazon box from the U.S. Postal
Service. What's up with that? It must be a problem within the
Amazon family.

Do they use used boxes? Do they use gorillas to load the trucks?
Do they have a bunch of nosy factory workers who "inspect" each
box before it leaves? This is the worst package I ever got from
them. AND I even paid for shipping. No SuperSaver for me this
time! This is what my money brought me. It's an outrage, I tell you!

There was only one item, Superstud: Or How I Became a
24-Year-Old Virgin, by Paul Feig. I can't recommend it, because
I haven't read it yet. Duh! I just got it today after school. I am not
a speed reader. I do highly recommend his other book, Kick Me:
Adventures in Adolescence. I laughed, I cried, I loaned it to a
teaching buddy. The first chapter alone had me laughing until I cried.
Poor Paul, in his Christmas Elf costume. What were his parents
thinking? No wonder he was scarred for life. He's the guy who
wrote the ill-fated TV show Freaks and Geeks, which which
kickstarted the careers of Linda Cardellini, James Franco, Busy
Philipps, and Jason Segel.

Yes. I'm a geek. And sometimes I'm a freak. I have the Collector's
Edition DVDs of this series. It was based on the life of Paul Feig.
Man! That guy has serious issues.

I have serious issues, too. With Amazon.com.

Oh my gosh! No, so far (*knock on wood*) I've never received a package in that kind of condition. My husband buys a lot of stuff from amazon and he hasn't had a problem either.

Are you sure it isn't the Post Office banging your boxes up like that???

Maybe the short bus rolled over it on the way to your house. As revenge for picking on the kids at school. Ya think?

Damn, I loved Freaks and Geeks - pity it was on ever on at about 2am here :(

I've only used Amazon once and my package made it across an ocean in better condition than that.

Holy cow! Our Pony Express delivers better than that. Did you send them an email with that jpg attached?

That's a good idea Moos.

I frequently order from Amazon and I have yet to receive a battered package.
