    Is it April 1st or something?

    If that's all it takes to ruin Christmas then this country is in a worse state than I thought it was.

    Still, at least Amazon didn't try to blame it on Brexit!
  • What's ironic is I've just spent the last half an hour trying to find a way to leave them feedback about insanely excessive packaging!

    I ordered some sage & onion stuffing and it was delivered in a box labelled "Something special for the fat old bird". Wife not talking to me. I'm trying to decide if this has ruined Christmas.

    I had no idea about the opt-in requirement for having outer packaging. I purchase everything with one touch/swipe on the app, so will need to bear this extra step in mind.

    Isn't there still an option to have things gift-wrapped?

    You can guarantee not to please everyone! Amazon usually vastly overpack small items.
