A "WTF" moment
Posted: May 20, 2014 in Cycling
I ordered some helmet pads and some handlebar take from Probikekit.com. They're in the UK but they have free shipping to the US. Helmet pads weight less than the packaging they're sent in, and cork bar tape isn't much heavier.
The box arrived last night and seemed a bit heavy. When I opened it, I found the following:
- Helmet pads (the wrong ones)
- Handlebar tape (the one I ordered)
- One 250ml bottle of Lipton Iced tea.
I mean wtf? Why would you deliberately increase the shipping weight of something YOU'RE paying to ship?? It's not like iced tea is some cycling related thing they're trying to promote.
I don't get it.
