An Amazon customer has blasted the firm's 'absolutely ridiculous' packaging after they put a single net curtain rod in a box almost the size of his dining table.
Mark Waddington, of Skipton, North Yorkshire, ordered the 70cm by 1cm rod from the firm from the website for 10.49.

But to his disbelief, the item arrived in a box that he estimates could have contained up to 50 of the rods.
The 29-year-old posted an image to the firm's Facebook page, writing: 'I genuinely cannot believe how wasteful your packaging is here. Absolutely ridiculous.'
He added: 'The packaging is always either ridiculously too much, or not enough. I ordered a can of spray paint and the can was hanging out of the bottom of the packaging.
The professional magician, who bought the item on Amazon from Ians Emporium, said today: 'When the box turned up I couldn't work out what I'd ordered that would need such a big box.
