Lost my USPS damage virginity but am keeping HOPE...

UPS got you down? eBay making you cry? Need to rant? Do it here.
Well, I finally got a deal on an Obama Hope poster and was eagerly awaiting its arrival and was bummed when I saw the tube. Totally crushed in the middle and the poster is ruined. Luckily this wasn't a signed one! Anyway, the seller was totally cool about it and is sending me a replacement. As a courtesy to him I told him I'd file a claim for him because he insured it and paypal him the amount I paid for it once the USPS refunds me which they said they'd do on the spot. Everybody wins.

So anyway, here's what unhappiness looks like in the form of a poster tube:

It's always a weird feeling in your gut when you see damage to the outside of a tube ...

That doesn't look like a very sturdy tube to me.

Taking that first look down the tube is probably the worst part .... you're either in for a world of relief or a world of pain.

Good news! My seller sent me a replacement poster and it is 99% near mint. He could have packed the ends of the tube a little better as there is some very minor edge damage, but nothing that will be seen once it's in a frame.
