Huh. I believe this is the Pottery Barn equivalent of a zen koan

Huh. I believe this is the PB equivalent of a zen koan, originally uploaded by meanlouise.

Or, possibly, our relationship has reached the point where it’s ok to play little pranks on one another.

update: Upon closer inspection I discovered that the shelving unit was UNDER the box-within-a-box. I can’t decide whether this was brilliant package or deeply ridiculous. I’m glad I didn’t call Pottery Barn and complain as soon as I opened the box. Sometimes taking a nap saves one from taking rash action, I suppose…

Sharing is caring!

They sent you an empty box?

Need to post an update on this. The shelving unit was UNDER the box-within-a-box. I can’t decide whether this was brilliant package or deeply ridiculous.

Ha! I thought they sent you an empty box…then I read your update and thought, hmmm a nap prevents a rash?!? Yeah, that could work…

I also thought that they sent me an empty box, inside another empty box, no less.

Obviously, this was a very safe way to ship you
an incredibly valuable set of matching corner
protectors.
