    Maybe I'll turn it into a little grave for the dead mouse now...

    I get things like that all the time. The worst was a 1.5ft by 1.5ft box which contained a single cd and a piece of paper.

    I get those all the time from Microsoft software assurance, I have had box lots of four hard drives shipped in smaller containers than MS uses to ship me a single CD.

    I was going to make a thread laughing about this but you saved me the bother

    I recently phoned Dell to ask them to send us a number of replacement laptop keyboards - as we are covered under accidental damage the helpdesk operator asked if we had any other problems such as plastic casing damage, DVD-ROM damage etc- I thought this would be a good time to mention I would appreciate some replacement rubber dots (covering the screws) which had been pinched by students from around the laptop displays.

    Cue 15mins or so on hold as the operator attempts to find the part number for the rubber dots lol! Anyway - I asked him for quite a few as I plan to smarten the laptops up again over summer....

    They were delivered a number of days later - 1 very large jiffy bag containing 1 small rubber dot well wrapped up!!!! They sent us 6 or so I think so 6 of these jiffy bags landed on my desk. Remember - these dots cover 1 really small screw top - so you can imagine the size!

    I was hoping for maybe a whole sheet of rubber dots or such like!

    My thoughts as well - I wouldn't have thought packaging like that would be uncommon for items of that size! Heck, we got one huge box (the same size as you get on these beastly-sized laser printers) from DABS, just for a few screen sprays (although, DABS always oversize on their packaging)!
