The accolades are wonderful, but may I assume it IS possible to add the prophylactic liner to the Exalted Box 'O Crap for further shipment? And as to the signatures: Is that similarly OK? As always your crappy servant just wanting to comply with the requests of the Most Wonderful and Powerful Crapmaster. As you shall deem, I will comply. Your lowly and crappy servant, MH

I have received the proper forms, signed in triplicate, and properly notarized. You have all rights and privileges to prophylactradactylly line the Box Oí Crap.

My advisers are unclear as to the nature of thy signature request...

Ah yes! The Columbus SLX decal! Indeed! Lovely idea! Wonderful, yes proceed with the blessings of the realm!

Your Most High and Mighty Crapmaster,
As you have deemed it possible, it shall be done. I will proceed post haste and move the exalted Box 'O Crap forthwith to it's next destination. May the Crap be with you! Smiles, MH

Today the exalted Box 'O Crap Left for it's next destination. Her is the reveal as it leaves, the MH signature, and my take. Smiles, MH

The BoC arrived safely in my hands this morning. I think I'll leave it taped up for structural integrity until I get home, but the box is intact:

I don't know how y'all managed to fit all that in this box! I ended up with one extra piece after I re-sealed the box just because I forgot to put it back in. And what I had planned to put in the box would've taken up over half the volume of the box by itself. I planned to put the heaviest, sturdiest stuff in first, with the lightest and most delicate stuff at the top, but in the end, I just scrambled things up until I could get the top closed.

I believe romperrr is next.

That's the best route. USPS can tell where the most delicate stuff is to make sure they drop it on that side. ;)

FWIW, I was unable to view your images.

Pending pickup by our letter carrier, which will probably be Tuesday morning, the Box is enroute to the next victim.

Just checked the tracking on USPS, it is still on it's way. Will post when received. I am eager for the crap that will befall me.

Chr0m0ly 06-22-20 04:24 PM

I have a group I ordered through Ebay, itís been wandering around Detroit for a couple weeks. I think the USPS is still running fewer staff, and itís making deliveries sloooooow.

BOC Folks,
Maybe the carrier is suffering from back strain....:injured:

Yes, USPS tracking showed the BOC bouncing around Detroit distribution centers for most of the past week!

Everything I've bought or sold recently has slowed way down. I generally drop packages in the lobby at Evanston's main post office. I'd say it takes at least 36 hours before tracking shows it as received, then it can take awhile (couple days) before it appears to start moving from wherever it was originally scanned. I'm sure USPS is hurting, both in terms of reduced staff and (ahem) flak from El Presidente and his minions.

I hope the postal workers are healthy. I fear for them.

the sci guy 06-27-20 04:04 PM

My friend sent me a package over a week ago from NY and itís been bouncing around the Houston USPS system since Monday. Itís still not here and thereís no update to tracking since then.
USPS is the worst.

Looks like it’ll be awhile before my turn comes around, but the crap around here ain’t going nowhere. Mr. Crapmaster, please add me to the list!

Tom,
I just hope they are wearing the back support braces with the weight of the Box O' Crap! Smiles, MH

It's been many an age since I checked in here. I see there is a new crapmaster. Kudos

Hello all, the coveted crap container. I had some computer/phone issues come up recently that I had to attend to. The box will be on its way shortly.

Thanks!
