I swear, if I get one more package in the mail from an eBay seller with an 7x shipping cost markup, I'm going to scream.
The last package I got shipped from Florida, in a letter-sized bubble mailer for two tiny specialty screwdriver bits. What was the shipping cost? $10.00. What was the postage on the bubble mailer? $1.00.
I know a bubble mailer doesn't cost that much (50 cents maybe?). Combine this with 30 seconds to fill out the customs form, and another minute to tape all the address info to the package. Two minutes of work for $8. I gotta get myself in on this racket...
