I have good news and bad news about this delivery. The good news first? Okay. The good news: I paid $10 extra to make sure my package arrived by Thursday; it actually arrived a day early. That's a good thing.

The bad news?  This is how it was delivered. What the hell happened to my package? I called the company I ordered my $200  microphone from and asked if I should even open the package or just send it back?  My Rep told me to go ahead and open it...as he knew I was needing this microphone for a gig I have this weekend. He didn't think that the inside package would have any damage to it, and either way, I wouldn't have to pay for it if something was wrong. So I opened the package.

Needless to say, the inside package WAS damaged.  However; the microphone that was inside THAT package, was wrapped thoroughly with bubble wrap, and so far, doesn't appear to have any damage. I haven't tested it out yet, but still the question remains. What has this poor package been through?  It looks like it was run over, thrown against the wall and repackaged.

Have you ever had this happen? What happened to your package? Was the content damaged? Who was responsible for the crushing? And why was I not informed of what happened?  I wonder if the delivery person felt awkward leaving the package for me? I may never know.
