This "License Only” Version Of Office Is Packed Very Efficiently

Today’s episode of everyone’s favorite post “Stupid Shipping Gang” is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Newegg was concerned about Rob’s software license (Just a license. No discs.) being damaged so they shipped it in a box. With packing peanuts.

Rob says:

I bought a license for Microsoft Office Small Business 2007 from Mind you, this is a “license only” version of Office (i.e., no media/CDs) for use with a pre-installed trial-version on your laptop/desktop. Lo and behold, the envelope arrived via UPS today.

While Newegg’s typically exceptional and speedy delivery was again spot on (24 hour turn-around), their packaging department was, shall we say, a bit wasteful?
