Not very different from how airport personnel treat our suitcases...

But it's surprising that anything even arrives in one piece. Maybe Chinese quality is better than perceived? Wink

Very true. And I suspect many TSA workers would probably fit right in there. Wink

If you've ever watched Office Space, you may remember the conversation Peter has with the two Bobs about having eight different bosses and only working hard enough to make sure they don't hassle him. That's the attitude many people who are stuck in 9-5s have after a few years, at least in my experience.

The difference is in China, there's the chance that when you're breaking somebody important's sex toy shipment from DX, you might just get a visit from your friendly neighborhood MSS agents (or whatever agency happens to be in charge of Gestapo matters these days).

Oh, thats why all the flashlight i get that are packaged in boxes (and bubblewrapped) have the boxes that look like they went through Vietnam in times of war. Except from missing bullet holes those are damaged to a unbeliveable degree.

Looks like he forgot to throw the parcels into the mandatory scrap metal shredder.

Fragile , handle with care ! 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

When I was a student I worked for a mail order company.

I got a call one day from a lady saying when she returned home she found a card saying that Parcelforce had tried to deliver her parcel while she was out.

The delivery man had written on it that the parcel had been thrown over the back gate and it had been.

Not exactly the recomended way to deliver a china dinner service, every piece of which had been smashed in the resulting 8foot drop.

What confuses me most about this video is that he seems just to be creating more work. You see at the end that they are going to put the parcels in bags, throwing them and then picking them up is obviously much harder work than just putting them in bags in the first place...just odd.

He looks pissed off about something and he's taking it out on the boxes.  You never know what disgruntled employees will be doing next. J)

My first purchase from dx was sent in a yellow envelope. Arrived torn to pieces. Surprisingly everything was in there!

That explains my Yezl. It came in a bubble lined envelope. The light was separated from the box and the box was torn to bits. I am amazed the light survived as well as it did, only minor dings on the case.

Everybody walking by. Nothing unusual going on here. The YouTube comments are entertaining.
