Nothing wrong with that box....at least it did,nt get lost in the post.....unlike having a small package disappear,into a big posties sack,that just might have a hole in it.......some people are just not happy.....i,d hate to hear your cry...if they had never arrived.....

For they twa wee packages.....what a rip off....but...it might be that French thing....they just never forgave the English,for beating the crap out of them at Crecy,Agincourt,and Poiters......and then bailing out on them in 1940.....how do i know all this....well i worked in France in 1990,and heard it every day....the English are this, and that,...when i said,"I speak English"...they said Ah, but you are Ecosse,..it is ok, {-)

We once had a phone SIMM card delivered by FedEx in a cardboard envelope which I swear was 18" x 12". The card itself (maybe 8mm x 12mm) was sellotaped to the corner of a sheet of A4 paper inside.
On a more serious note, I reckon that at least 95% of the contents of our waste bin every week is packaging which we can't recycle e.g. polythene bags, flimsy containers for meat, fruit and veg. I sometimes do feel like taking it back to the supermarket and leaving it for them to dispose of.

Hi David

  By law I think you can take it back and they have to deal with IT.
