Modern Life

I just put in an order for 4 packs of trading card sleeves for a Project to be Named Later.  All four packs together were $1.95. 

Shipping and handling was $2.11.  Cost more to mail ’em to me than it did to buy ’em.  Granted, given that there are 100 sleeves in a pack that’s a whole extra .5275 cents per sleeve, and if I were ordering in quantity I could get free shipping…still.  It’s silly.  I was tempted to buy more sleeves soley to have a purchase that cost more than its shipping.
