    Really?

    Folded right in half to put it in my mailbox.

    IQ lower than an ice cube.

    Is fold and bend the same thing?

    Maybe they meant don't bend at the Lable that says don't bend. Looks good to me.

    They can suck. But if you really don't want it bent ship in box or tube.

    When they break the cardboard, I know they really don’t care.

    I think some take a label like that as a challenge.

    Come on, man. That's not a bend, it's a creased fold. You need to be specific with your direction to people.

    And what happened to the good old fold/spindle/mutilate days?

    I won't beat up on the Carriers. Over the years they have been pretty good around here.......

    but this true story might shed a little light on the problem.

    A offshore Supervisor (Gulf of Mexico) told me this.
    His boy, ( I guess he was in his early 20's) went to the local Post Office main office to fill out an application.

    Surprisingly, the PO Supervisor didn't try to beat around the bush at all,
    He told the young man, outright,

    "You can fill out an application if you want, but it will do you no good. The only people we can hire are Women and Minorities."

    Why did you use mail order for a piece of cardboard?
    Don't they sell them everywhere?

    Really depends on your mail carrier. I had a good one once. Went out of his way to do things right. Brought packages to the door that didn't fit the mailbox. Made sure packages didn't get rained on. But the one before and the one after I've had are real a-holes. One put a package on my patrol car parked out front so he wouldn't have to walk to the door. One dropped my mail on the snow when he couldn't reach the box because snow was in the way after they plowed my street.
    My brother was hired as a temp at a little small community PO. He worked 5 1/2 days a week for over ten years. He ran the PO when the Postmaster was off. He was called in on weekends when something had to be delivered on a Sunday. She tried to make him permanent several times but could not get it done. For the most part though I get fair service, even if I have to go to the PO and pick up a package because they are too lazy to walk 10 steps so they put a card in the box.

    At what age does it become mandatory that you become obsessed with all things mail / shipping related?

    Best to not let the United States Park Service handle your mail. Their forte is bears and turtles and such.

    I think your mail is delivered by DNGAF instead of USPS.

    Think the shipper is just as much to blame. The item was shipped in an envelope. I would guess this was the absolute cheapest way to ship. I've seen boxes shipped by all carriers that are damaged. It happens. If I didn't want something bent I would spend a little extra to put it in a box and pack it securely. USPS is the best value in shipping. Much cheaper than the others and often as quick.
    I know usps is evil. A few weeks ago I get a phone call. The voice on the other end is my previous mailman. We moved 4 years ago. My sister had sent me a check and her bank still had my old address. Mailman recognized it as a check called to see if I wanted to meet him in town or if I wanted him to give it to my current carrier. The guy saved me a few days and he didn't have to. That's good stuff.

    0676024D-0097-464A-BEA1-B587CB09A52B.png I don’t know if they have a delicate touch or if they’re just too incompetent to properly break something.

    The cardboard tube was broken in the middle into 2 pieces and barely taped with one poorly applied wrap.

    But they didn’t break the 7’ Shimano Loomis Conquest 844 casting rod. I don’t know how it survived. Maybe it is really worth it’s list price of $649.

    The tackle shop in the upper Midwest said it doesn’t matter which shipper they use or what they put it in. And the workers must see a heavy plastic pipe as a special challenge. They ship a lot of rods.
