I recently bought a Tandy 1000 and Monitor.

Both were in very nice condition, at least at the senders ends.

When they got to me, they looked like hell, smashed and what not,
and this was via a courier.

I got my money back, but what a waste, a nice Tandy 1000 gone to the dumpster.

:(

That is truly too bad.
Ive had more-than-a-few things arrive that had been treated FAR TOO harshly, but Im pleased to say it hasnt been recently.

Out of curiosity, FedEx or UPS? :roll:
BTW..
Peggy's Cove is really nice this time of year, as I remember! :D

UPS, I think its all random luck, who just happens to be moving the things around, some handlers are far less careful than others.

I live quite a distance from Peggy's Cove.
