MarineDepot Order Hilarity


I ordered a light off the website MarineDepot.com yesterday and waiting in my email box is by far the funniest confirmation to date, funny enough to share with respect to the owner of such hilarity.


Good news, Mr.Betta!

Your aquarium supplies have been carefully picked from Marine Depot's shelves like delicate berries and placed into a wicker basket lined with unicorn fur. With the grace of a ballerina, we tiptoed them to our packing station where Santa's Elves—who work with us during their off-season—prepared your order for shipment.

Your products were methodically placed in each box using techniques taught to us by a former Tetris World Champion. Using a pair of tweezers, we placed hundreds of packing peanuts one-by-one into every nook and cranny to ensure safe transport. We are proud to share with you that our packing peanuts are reusable, recyclable, biodegradable and made using 100% recycled content. They also do not trigger peanut allergies. Eat your heart out, Mr. Peanut.

Saying goodbye to such sought-after products is always gut-wrenching. That is why we offer employees unlimited handkerchiefs as a part of our generous benefits package. As your order was whisked away at light speed down our assembly line into the loving arms of the shipping courier, our warehouse elves, with tears in their eyes, joined hands and whispered, "Jbba s kalk qonay." We don't speak Elvish ourselves, but they tell us the rough translation is "May these supplies bring stability and success to the aquarium and its owner." Wow, we are getting a little choked up ourselves now. Thanks, elves.

As the delivery truck pulled away from our warehouse dock, a rare double rainbow appeared overhead. That's when we knew the products we had raised since they were mere hatchlings were on their way to a better home. Please take care of them and, we promise, they will take care of you.


With sincere appreciation,

The MarineDepot.com Family

I got that same email a few weeks ago when I ordered some stuff from them and I couldn't stop laughing. You have to love when a business can have a little fun yet handle themselves professionally.

They are a great website, only one to carry this light at this price (only one other website had it). Will order from them again!

Now I want to order something from them just to get my own awesome confirmation! It's amazing how a bit of humor can endear an distant internet company.

I hope the product arrives packed to your expectations! It'd be a shame to hear such great PR and then see it arrive poorly packaged.
