Amazed at the huge boxes used recently to send items in.
Today received 2 packages both from USPS. One tiny lipstick for the wife put in a box measuring 8” square and a tiny usb cable in a large envelope that was more reasonable. Just can’t figure out the box business as the 3 inch cable was the same size as the lipstick.
Do they possibly have an agreement with USPS that all boxes regardless of sizes within certain measurements are the same price and therefore don’t care what they pack them in?
