It could have been worse.  About ten years ago, I was looking out the
office window and saw a delivery van pull up.  Bloke went in the back
and dragged a very large box to the edge.  Got down, grabbed sides of
box, and pulled it out.

..

He was still holding the box whilst the very large, very heavy, very
expensive colour laser printer dropped out of the bottom and landed on
the road in front of his feet..

It's replacement arrived strapped to a pallet ..!
