Sending a package abroad? Here's a word of advice: Pick your airline carefully.

A hilarious video has captured the care - or distinct lack there of - taken by an air freight handler at Guangzhou airport in China recently.

The worker energetically ditches a trolley full of boxes in the general vicinity of a conveyer belt, which is supposed to transport them inside the airplane. But only a few actually hit their target, with most landing on the tarmac with a crash.

DO NOT PANIC. We managed to save one of the blue Ming vases and now have it displayed in our museum:

Sometimes these shipping companies don't handle packages too well here either.  Ever ordered something to find the box was crushed and it was broke?

Solution:

Put a sticker on the box, saying:

"Handle with care. Do not drop. Extreme shock may cause explosion."  And in both English and Chinese, of course, assuming the personnel can read.

But I think a simple skull and bones sticker would do as well.



Anyway, at least blind people can get a decent job in China, heh.

Well that's just foolish, now the guy has to go back and move all those boxes that missed a second time to get them loaded. Haphazard loading makes for twice the work.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

Well, he wasn't doing that bad, considering his guide dog had a day off?

And then your items, wether it be cheap ebay fodder or a prized collectable will be taken to a remote field and destroyed in a controlled explosion.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.
