Costco Sends Us Bale Of Cardboard, Includes Free Furniture Pieces

cardboardsAmy was familiar with the work of the Stupid Shipping Gang, but didn’t expect to see them in her own office. No, not in the shipping department: at Costco, the vendor that sent them some soundproof panels for the office.

The panels themselves were adequately packaged, but the feet they sit on… oh, dear.

She writes:

My office ordered some divider panels from Costco for our sales team to help reduce the noise a little bit when they’re on the phone. The feet that hold the panels up arrived today, and the packaging is ridiculous. All four feet could have fit in one box with room to spare, but they were packaged individually. Such a waste!
