Happy 2011, Your Calendar Comes With Year's Supply Of Packing Material

Reader Cyndi ordered a calendar from Amazon.com, but what she actually got was more like she’d ordered a bunch of packing material and got a free calendar. Like when you order Chinese food, ya know? Except less tasty.

Cyndi says:

I ordered, and just received a wall calendar from Amazon.com. The calendar is 20″ by 30″ by approximately ½” thick. I’ve taken pictures of the box (33″ by 14″ by 14″ approximately and the packaging (miles and miles, no joke, of brown scrunched paper) that the calendar was sent in.
