Yesterday I took a partial delivery from a company named after a large South American River. The chap said there had been a change of plan and this was all I was getting today. I took the large plastic storage box from out of the packaging and set it aside. I then proceeded to burn the cardboard box as I had no room to store it. That proceeded well until I noticed a dense lump burning in the ashes- a book I had ordered. Nothing could be done , it was beyond saving. It was entirely my fault, my negligence and my foolhardiness rushing to dispose of the box. The company were not to blame, I was. I post this to remind myself and others to check beneath the swathes of brown paper really carefully before disposing of packaging. I have never done it before and will not do it again. Watching thirty pounds go up in flame concentrates the mind somewhat!
