The same wisdom for venereal disease and street coffee in Bangkok should also be applied to posting parcels: Package your goods not once, but twice!
The state mailing service known for damaging, throwing, folding, and totally losing parcels came up with a smart measure to prevent all of those things from happening this morning, by suggesting all senders protect their stuff with packing their packages in another branded, cardboard box.
“How to pack a box in a box for extra damage prevention,” was the subject of a Thailand Post protip explaining how to put a box in another box.
This is such a great solution, especially if you want to pay for another box and extra weight.
The useful illustration came weeks after it was proved even solid stone isn’t safe from handling by Thailand Post after film director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit’s achievement award from a German film fest arrived to him in pieces.
The award was made of stone, and Nawapol received THB4,000 in compensation for his shattered pride.
Not everyone agrees, as the comments under the helpful how-to were filled with scorn.
One comment suggested Thailand Post should consider selling steel boxes as a solution.
