    Is the US postal sevice radically different to the UK system? Why would the postal company be wrapping/packing your goods? Surely the sender should be doing that?

    EDIT: Never mind i've just realised you mean a mailbox as in at your house, rather than a box to send something in. We don't have those here, we have letterboxes.

    No as far as i know that's a US thing. 95% of the UK has these -


    Quite simply a hole in the door with a hinged, sprung flap on the front.

    We have mailboxes, and if it doesn't fit, the post guy leaves it at the back door.

    My friends dad is a USPS employee. he says that when people put 'fragile' on they boxes, he done make a point to be rough with them.
    Well the way I see it, I'm the judge and my bullets are the jury.

    Yeah, that's what USPS people are supposed to do too, but this time they didn't feel like driving up the driveway and placing it on the porch

    Reenactment-
    (after a few minutes of struggle and deep thinking) "AWWWW Shucks! This package won't fit in the mailbox!"
    (More deep thinking)
    "Fuck it."
    *bend* *snap* *fold* *cram*
    "I love this job!" *drives off into the sunset*

    Sadly, no. But in the USPS' defense, it was not marked 'FRAGILE' or 'DO NOT BEND'

    erm, did the parcel have "do not bend" written on it? whenever you send something that can break/snap/fracture you must always asume its going to be delivered by a slavering idiot. I work for a mail order company and its the senders resposibilty to protect things!! Wrap it in stiff card, bubble wrap. If its precious, recorded post!

    Yeah, I know, it really was the people who I bought it froms fault, I'm getting my money back. Although it takes some effort to bend a vinyl record in its sleeve in a bubble-wrapped envelope.
