Much nicer then the big brown that came within 6 inches of me on a ride home. I turned it in to the 800 number on the back of the vehicle as well as time, date, and vehicle number. Your box is much better.

Most of the excitement is just receiving the package. I remember when my bicycle came in a box. Oh what a fun time I had putting it together (slight bit of sarcasm). Welp, enjoy.

What can brown do for me? Don't double and triple park. Don't speed. Don't speed to get though yellow/red lights. Don't cut people off just to make a quick turn in front of them. Etc.
All of my goodies for the past two years have come Fedex.

Eh, most of the big brown drivers around here aren't bad, besides the double parking to drop something off. Now taxi drivers are a totally different stories.

And plus, the aluminum falcon came in a big brown box dropped off by a big brown truck.
