I'm a great believer in recycling. Anybody who's bought stuff from me via ebay will get a well-packaged bundle of happiness but it won't be the first time the wrapping has gone thru' the postal service.
So, when The Future Mrs D says "You've got a parcel", I immediately think "Woohoo!!". There's a moment of confusion when she chucks it over. It feels a bit crinkly, almost as if it's been wrapped in a shopping bag. "WTF?". It is wrapped in a shopping bag.
Now, if this had been bought from some nice person via Ebay, I could understand it but it wasn't. It came from a well known retailer.
On the one hand, it's a great bit of recycling. On the other, I paid nearly £4 for P&P. It did arrive quickly, right enough. Within 2 working days in fact.
I'm really no' sure how I feel about this. Actually, I do but I won't say anything here until I've spoken to their customer services folk.
I'm away to open it. I'm sure the contents will put a smile back upon my coupon.
