Hubby has many talents, but one of the handiest of those is his ability to judge whether a left-over will fit into the refrigerator container I have picked. Our routine is that after we eat and he is still sitting at the table, I will start cleaning up, including putting leftovers in the fridge. Sometimes (many times, actually) when I look for a container to use, it is very hard for me to judge whether it will fit or not. So I will ask Hubby whether it will fit and he is right 99% of the time. What a handy talent! And, of course, it means he has no trouble at all picking the container, if he is the one cleaning up.
I have never thought of this trait of Hubby’s as “marketable”, but after receiving an order from a national store chain the other day, I think he could have a second career in their shipping department.
This box arrived yesterday.
I knew what I had ordered, but I could not believe it was in this huge box.
When I opened it, it was packed full with brown paper packaging.
And when I removed all the packing…
… the items I had ordered were in the bottom.
I couldn’t find anything on the package that said how much the company paid for shipping (it was free shipping for me), but I have to believe that there is some waste, both in postage and man hours, because of this overkill in packaging.
I hope their shipping department pays big bucks, because I’m sending them Hubby’s resume today!
