UPS: iPod Touch Delivered In Box Looks Like Hippo Sat On

Lucas opened his door one day to find this mangled package, containing an iPod Touch that was a birthday gift for his wife. No doubt he had the same expression as Rosemary when she saw her baby for the first time.

He writes:

I am writing to congratulate Amazon and UPS. This past week I cashed in some of my bank points for Amazon Gift Certificates to help buy an IPod touch for my wife’s birthday. And let me tell you, I couldn’t be happier. As you can see from the pictures, Amazon not only delicately placed the IPod in the box, but they spared no expense on packaging material. As for UPS…what else can I say??? Their angelic touch made sure my package was not only delivered promptly, but in pristine condition.

So, for all you fellow readers out their who would like to purchase a fragile 250 dollar piece of equipment, DON’T SHOP AT AMAZON!!!!!!

Lucky for Lucas and his wife, them iPods is tough. Also, Lucas, redirect your wrath from Amazon towards UPS. They’re the ones with the hippos.
