Steve Madden’s Stupid Shipping Gang Thinks I Need A Ginormous Box For A Pair Of Sunglasses

I am a large box.

The Stupid Shipping Gang is a particularly crafty sort of crew, and it’s infiltrated many, many online retailers. We imagine there must be some mythical creature working for the shipping departments of all stores, one with myopic vision and a penchant for outsized shipping containers.

Because really, writes Alison, using a 13 by 13 by 6 inch box and a plethora of packing paper for a pair of sunglasses just makes one shake their head. What’s that? Yes, sunglasses.

She says:

No, not sunglasses for a giant, not sunglasses made from spun gold or bone china or something. Plain old normal-sized plastic sunglasses, packaged in a box big enough for a pair of boots with more paper than I used to wrap a friend’s champagne flutes.

I know it makes some financial and space-saving sense for companies to only stock a few different box sizes, but even so, for this to be the smallest one they have seems silly, since they do sell a number of small items like eyewear, socks, gloves, etc. And again, this isn’t
anything new and it’s certainly not a big problem, but you know… pics or it didn’t happen

At least Alison now has a box to store any giant sunglasses, should she purchase them.
