Wow, I couldn't believe this-yesterday I got a book in the mail-DH brought it in the house just shaking his head.  The wrapping was torn, smudged, ripped-the only thing that held it to the book was 3 rubber bands!  I could barely make out a red stamped message about damage through the PO. 

But the book?  Aside from a few slight smudges, the book was FINE!  I PMed the person who sent the book and told her I'd never seen wrapping so mangled, yet the book in such great shape!   A stroke of luck...!

That happened to me once, too.  The packaging was an absolute mess and I feared for the book, but it came through unscathed.  Amazing!
