    Logistics Issue?

    So I ordered some of the same strip brushes from ebay that Brent ordered for his cnc, but I added 1", 2", and 3" strip brushes from the same seller in my cart, two of each size. I checked out and the shipping was a combined total of $5. So I get home today to find 3 packages in the entry way, two boxes and a shipping tube. Looking at the size of the boxes I'm confused to as what they were, but then saw the name of the seller.

    Sure enough, in each of the two boxes are my 2" and 3" strip brushes, the 1" were in the tube.

    Doesn't make sense to me that they didn't combine the order and at that use a smaller box or tube...oh well.

    I've had some head scratchers before from the way different vendors have shipped stuff, but those boxes take the cake.

    The tube my 2" door sweep was shipped in is strong enough to make a potato gun out of, lol.

    Maybe he's an environmentalist and had those boxes and tube laying around, didn't want to put them in the land fill and just needed to move them to someone else's house??

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
