Justin’s recent Amazon experience was his first encounter with the retailer’s Stupid Shipping Gang, Truth in Labeling Department. In that department, they take items that are already in a sturdy enough box and then slap a shipping label on it to send to the customer. This is practical and environmentally friendly…for the crook who just happens to walk by and need a worksite radio.
“Please tell the world what I got so they can steal it off my front porch,” he grumbled to Consumerist. Fortunately for him, his UPS driver was as practical as Amazon’s slap-a-label-on-it is problematic, and hid the package carefully. Not so carefully that Justin didn’t find it, but still pretty well.
“Does the good act cancel out the dumb act?” he asks.
