    Amazon - liberals - silent environmentalist nutjobs - box size to what is inside

    Am I the only one who gets boxes that could - easily - hold 10 - 20 - 40 times what is inside?

    How many thousands of trees wasted?
    Landfills overloaded?
    Wasted space in UPS trucks?

    My mailman puts boxes inside my gate when it won't fit in the mailbox.
    Man hours wasted.

    The only reason I can think that they do it is.....small boxes are easier to steal?
    We have done so much, with so little, for so long....We can now do anything, with nothing, forever.

    It makes one wonder.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Is the demands they place on employees to complete so many orders per hour. If one constantly grabs big boxes, then one doesn't have to Re box.

    I dunno... Walmart has donethat to us frequently, but our Amazon orders generally come in a box just large enough for the product and some of the air pillow protective inserts. Maybe it depends on where they ship from?

    What difference does it make? The box will be used for shipping
    or flattened eventually.
