On another board there is an ever growing thread about how much vendors are charging for shipping and handling on eBay these days. Everytime eBay raises its fees, S/H increases for low profit margin items.

This is from a post by someone attempting to buy stereo speakers.

Q: Hi, could you please tell me how these will be packaged? Thanks.

A: Hello, First our packaging specialist will don white cotton gloves. He will then wipe all surfaces with lambs’ wool to remove minute traces of dust. The speakers will be carefully placed in plastic bags, lovingly sealed, and then wrapped in large bubble wrap for an extra comfy journey. With great care the entire wrapped speaker will be surrounded by custom cut rigid foam for durability and that certain something you can only get from using rigid foam, The final step in packaging is for our entire organization to gather around the shipping area, light some candles and chant a mantra as the speakers are lowered into extra heavy duty double walled boxes. As the boxes are sealed a hush falls over the crowd. The final piece of tape causes the entire group to form a candle light single file mini parade out to the loading dock where a custom built Mercedes van awaits the reception of the speakers. The loading of the speakers will cause a great cacophony of cheers from the crowd who will wave and hoot as the Mercedes van pulls away and slowly shrinks off in the distance. The van will carefully navigate the journey to the airport, purposely going out of its way to avoid potholes. Once the van arrives at the airport a second team springs into action. The speakers are removed from the van. The paperwork is approved by the local authorities and then the speakers are loaded onto a waiting private jet. A color guard plays as the jet taxis down the runway. Again great cheers erupt from the gathered crowd. I'm not sure what happens next but somehow they get to you. Regards Tom
