Burglar breaks into locksmith business

So a couple of weeks ago we had to order a software "unlock key" for a switch that we have here at work. The switch we had already had the software needed to do what we needed, we just needed to unlock it. So we spent $714 to get the unlock code which I assumed they would just email me.

I got an email all right... Except they told me to expect it via UPS in a week. I emailed back saying that I couldn't wait a week is there anyway they could get it to me via email. They said for security reasons they couldn't. So we were forced to wait a week and this is what came. It was a gigantic box, probably about a foot cubed. Inside that box wrapped in an excessive armount of bubble wrap was another smaller box. That inner box was sealed shut with packing tape. Opening up the smaller box revealed a little tiny index card with some simple instructions and the unlock key number.

The most wasteful thing I've seen in a long time. And it took a little more than a week to arrive.
