I still can't figure out WHY [Jun. 7th, 2013|11:14 pm]

So, a CD I bought mail order off the Internet finally arrived at the post office today. So, after watching tonight's instalment of The Whiny JAFA Show, I finally get around to opening it.

Half an hour later, the actual disk is finally in my hands.

But on the bright side, I suppose it is good to see that all the people, who used to be gainfully employed in manufacturing impenetrable plastic packaging for Air New Zealand cheese slices, still have jobs...

Hee! I actually started carrying a pair of scissors in my car for just this reason; packaging has gotten truly insane!

There is a magazine in the USA that gives an "award" for most frustrating / awful packaging in their Xmas issue, along with comments from the frustrated owner of the new item. "Had to use hacksaw to open and get my flash drive out", etc, etc.

{Chuckle} I wonder if they learned from my de-facto godparents. They did NOT trust the post office to get a package to it's destination in one piece. Not without a LOT of tape alternating with paper and cardboard boxes (yes, plural; I think they preferred to nest a second box inside the outer box). I think we would get into one of their packages in under half an hour, but that was because we had a fair bit of practice breaking into the things. They sent things a few times a year. {SMILE}

I hope you enjoy your new CD, now that the pesky packaging is out of the way. {BIG SMILE}
