Well, I sent the picture because I saw the previous article about excess packaging, it made me laugh and I thought "Yeah, I've seen that". So my intention was only to amuse. But it seems to have stirred up a Hornets nest so just a few comments.
The picture is genuine. It wasn't staged, artificially created or Photo Shopped. The way I described it was exactly the way it happened.
I agree that the tape says Kuehne and Nagel. But my company outsources all its IT support and procurement to HP so this was ordered through HP.
I did say "It was a while ago". But this isn't the first time I've seen excess packaging nor I suspect will it be the last. This was just the most excessive example I've ever seen.
To anyone I've offended, I apologise
To anyone I've amused, you're welcome
To anyone who doesn't believe me, you are entitled to your beliefs.
Here's hoping someone can top this and win the 5000 rolls of packing tape :-)
