What WERE they thinking?

There never seems to be money in the budget for books, but I finally ordered a book from Amazon that I had been wanting for a while.  I also ordered a bird feeder to replace the one that was ruined by the hail.  I'm not sure what was going through the mind of the person who packed the order.  A large metal bird feeder and a book were dumped into the same carton to bang around against each other as the carton was undoubtedly bumped, jostled, and tossed in transit.  The only packing materials were two thin pieces of brown paper.  There wasn't even a packing list, which is a bummer because we were waiting on the packing list to send to the insurance company for reimbursement of the bird feeder.  What a hassle! 
Here is what the book looked like, and, no, it was NOT a used book.


  1. That really surprises me. My experience has been good from amazon. I sure hate you had the trouble. I hope you can get dome justice, but I know it is a hassle just trying to take care of it.

    Maybe you Can glean enough info from the order and shipping reports online to get things FIXED.

    A situation like that makes you feel so much out in left field.

    1. Amazon has already responded to my email. Hopefully we are on our way to getting things rectified. I don't have a printer right now, so it's a little annoying to get the receipt for the insurance (on the bird feeder) and especially since dh wanted the receipt a week and a half ago. I think the insurance guy is putting pressure on him to wrap things up.
