ever wondered why

... you pay such high retail markup on everything, even though the basic costs are relatively low? sure, there's budgets for advertising, discounts, returns, damaged goods, packaging, employee salaries and such. but next time you buy something, keep in mind that you're also helping to offset the cost of doing clever things like this:

oh and in case that wasn't embarrassing enough... there were two more similarly sized items on this order that were shipped separately. the next day.

Sadly, no joke.

Even worse: This is normal. I ordered a lipstick from them last year and the exact same thing happened. Nor are they alone in shipping this way. I want something I've ordered packed carefully, but this is just ridiculous. The box is larger than my head!
