Goin' all Ace Ventura on my shipment

Postby joneill809 » Thu Oct 18, 2012 9:43 pm

This was attempt number two at bringing in some golden hydei via the postal service...everytime I see a box like this I get a mental picture of the opening of Ace Ventura Pet Detective when Jim Carey is punting his fragile delivery down the side walk. These guys just nailed this box right smack on the handle with care sticker:

At least enough survived that I got 2 starter cultures going :)

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

Of course, FedEx isn't without its moments too; this cctv capture was going around late last year:

It's going to happen from time to time and it happens with all the carriers. When millions of packages are be delivered every once in awhile this happens. Most of the damaged packages get that way on a conveyor belt that does not know if a fragile sticker has been placed on it or not. Most of the people delivering do not intentionally mishandle boxes but there will always be the dick in the crowd. It just sucks more when their is something breakable/live in the box.
