i am so sick of paying all kinds of money for shipping and then getting things that cost half or less that half for the shipping and they are just packed so carelessly. i just got something i bought. i paid 12 dollars for shipping. it was lv. ok, fine- i figure it should def cost that or almost with insurance (it was about 200 dollars) plus siggy conf etc. i get it and it looks like it cost 6 dollars. it was thrown in the old brown lv shopping bag with an old lv ribbon tossed in the bag. then the brown bag was wrapped in bubble wrap- no tape, just wrapped around it- and thrown in a tyvek. ok, i know i am not the norm for the way i ship- that would have been wrapped in tissue, then in the bag, then in bubble wrap, then in a baggy (give or take the bubble wrap) with a packing slip, note, etc. i know most people don't do that. but why would you charge so much for doing NOTHING? i mean don't you even have respect for what you sell or your business? I'm sorry but it just irks me. i just think it's so crappy and disresectful and cheating. i only buy things when i accept the shipping costs so i fully knew it would cost 12 dollars. but i expected my item to be treated right. shipping like that makes me feel like the seller is almost doing me a favor sending it to me. and they made 6 bucks just doing that! grrrr i so want to give her a neutral or a soft positive. i always tell the sellers when this sort of stuff bothers me but it happens so often i feel like why bother? but then again it really bothers me. sorry i just needed to vent. i am so over it.
