A very dull post about a box
When this box arrived, I wondered whether I'd ordered a small bed or a fridge in my sleep. But no. It simply contained a (horse's) girth, as seen draped over the box. Oh - and lots of that drapey brown paper beloved of Amazon, to fill up the considerable space around it.
Now I have three problems:
1. This thing will have to stand in the kitchen until I've tried the girth for size (I've been ill, and haven't been near the horse for a week), as I shall have to use the box if I need to return the girth. The box takes up a lot of room.
2. The box will take a lot of flattening, and will be hard to fit into the little recycling bags we're given.
3. Managing my indignation at this sheer waste.
So - I shall email Amazon and ask them to collect their box (which is presumably now my box) as I am giving it back. They can deal with it.
