Contamination

31 Oct

So about a month ago, I bought the movie Empire Records on eBay. It’s been several weeks, and the movie still hasn’t shipped. I sent a message to the seller about it, and today I got a reply. Turns out a lot of mail that he shipped out (as well as from lots of other people, I’m guessing) got contaminated with mercury, and was destroyed by the post office. Can you believe that? Mercury! That’s just insane. I mean, I didn’t really want a movie that was contaminated with something harmful, but really? That actually happens in real life? Crazy. At least I got a refund, though. I do feel bad for the seller, though, who lost all that stuff he’d shipped and then had to refund everyone’s money. I just have to shake my head about the whole thing. Mercury. Man.
