I thought that for $5, these mugs would be great little gifts to pass out to my friends just for fun. Well, I ordered 16 mugs, yes 16. Today they arrived in the mail and ALL 16 were broken!!! I don't know who the hell packaged these mugs, but they just stacked them all on top of eachother. No foam peanuts, no paper for padding, no nothing! When I picked up the box, it sounded like a million broken pieces and when I opened the box, that is what was in there. I sent UO an e-mail with attached pictures. Hopefully I'll get the mugs in tack the second time around. All I could think of is what a waste!

Wow, I guess I got lucky! I ordered 3 of these mugs and they arrived perfect on Thursday. All 3 were shipped in an individual bubble wrap sleeve and a big box full of peanuts. No cracks, chips, nicks to be found. I guess I had the "employee of the month" wrapping my package for shipment!

Wow, I cant believe UO is such a failure at shipping. We emailed one of the head people about this, even though we are not doing business with them anymore maybe they will look into it.

Sorry everyone for the trouble, wish there was something I could do about it.

I wish it wasn't an "online only" sale. I walk by one of their stores all time.

got my replacement Bastard. overkill on the packaging this time. huge box, foam peanuts and ONE carefully bubble wrapped mug.. arrived safely via UPS.

maybe someone in shipping at UO realized they need to do it right, or do it over and over!

No wonder they're called U Bastards.

well, I recieved my replacement shipment of the "them Bastards". Well let's just say the wife is going to call Monday to make sure they properly send the small bastard mug. It was broken as well.

That is the main reason I hate buying mugs off the internet.

Hah... You mean you haven't seen enough broken mugs? This request almost seems fetishlike now.

How'd the experiment go with the exploding mug?
