I like this new term I just read, "You've been zuckered."

For such an intelligent specie, we are surprisingly stupid, at times - devoid of common sense.

What sort of business model is this - DK buys two 8 foot long 1/4 inch PVC rods at $4 something each. The company offers her a ~40% discount AND free shipping on said purchase. They arrive thusly. Just the packaging would cost again what the product is worth. And the freight - they arrived by private truck freight - would probably be double what the product is worth.

So, for less than $6, she gets these delivered like this, to her door.

Somebody's business model ain't a gonna survive long at this rate.

And sometimes, DK just needs a good rant.
