    Any of you ever been bemused by the way someone's packaged a record? I bought an LP off a bric-a-brac seller on eBay the other and, since I suspected she may not have sent too many records by mail, I was patronising and asked her to sandwich it carefully between two pieces of corrugated cardboard and mark the parcel as 'fragile'. It arrived this morning, safely concealed between two cut-to-size sheets of hardboard.



    The thing is, since I only wanted one record from the lot I'd won she offered to waive S+H (although I included a couple of quid nevertheless) and she'd have been left with approximately £1.70 profit before even buying the hardboard. So thank you to careful sellers everywhere.
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

      what gets on my wick is when people charge you £2.50 and you get the record sent in a *used* mailer!!

      If I pay £2.50 I expect a brand new mailer at the very least!

      Is this Monday Rant day?

        Yay&#33;

        To be honest I don&#39;t mind people reusing mailers - recycling and all that. What gets me is when they use pizza boxes...

                          Indeed. Myself and Rich want a Kylie icon and we want one now. Or perhaps something more polite
