Maybe it's someone in the USPS

It isn't necessary to remove the plastic sleeve to read a magazine; a 2" split on the top seam is sufficient for - example - "Playboy" to be perused and sent on apparently untouched.

Don't ask ....

I hear ya. We just sent a muffler to a fellow today in Alberta from here in Northern Ontario and the box was 5x5x5 and 230gr. The total cost with fuel surcharge was 9.88. Talk about getting hosed.
