I guess I hold myself accountable to a higher standard when in my private and business dealings. I'd rather eat the 5-10 bucks it costs me to do something right and protect against others incompetence and negligence then argue the merits of who asked for what.

The addition of four dollars and ninety five cents to a shipping total to ensure that the parcel is not drop shipped (1.50 for signature) and insured (3.45 cents approximately) for this package is NOT "unreasonable" this is quoted for standard shipping through normal channels.

Again, obviously I hold myself accountable to a higher standard then others and I am just speaking from my opinion on how I would conduct myself (and have done so in the past). Honesty is paramount in life.
