Can't trust many people these days
So I decided to trade some shrimp with someone who contact me online, not from this forum. Some tigers for some other tigers, we agreed on a # for a # and deal was done shipped Sat. I packed my 12 in the kordon breather bag and put it in a 7X7X6 flat rate usps box with a styro food container around it then a bunch of organic eco friendly insulation from lowes. Packed it good and tight sealed it up and shipped it. He shipped his sat too. I get his package a few min ago. Box is crushed to one side good, taped well. I open it as 2 very small cut styro strips on the bottom rest is just 3 crumbles of news paper. Then there it sits a heat pack right on the shrimp wrapping, they are wrapped in paper towels only..... As I unwrap them they are in none breather bags, just your standard LFS bags, and double bagged with maybe a 5th of the bag full of water. so they sloshed the whole ride. And low and behold shrimp were cooked due to the packing of a heat pack which I did not request. This time of year things are find, and they are tigers which are good in colder water. So I get them out and check water temp 80*, are you fing kidding me..... So looks like this guy does not know how to ship shrimp and I get to be the luck bastard to find this out. So I am pretty frustrated. I am sending him picks and explaining to him how to send shrimp and how not to.
Thought I would share so people understand why I love the forum and the sellers on it so much!
