I hate it when people over tape things especially when they tape really tightly. It is not necessary and I have had issues with nearly damaging things attempting to get the tape off. For example, bubble wrap stays in place very well when something is wrapped in it. One small piece of tape is all that is necessary. But, some people wrap it in tape going every which way which makes it very difficult to unpack.

Maybe it is just me, but good packing does not require roles of tape! Just enough to secure things which takes a very small piece of tape usually only in one or two places.

Yes! Wonderful sign! I wouldn't kick it off my wall!

Total agree with both you guys about the tape thing. Another thing I wish packers would adopt is to fold back about ½ inch of the end of the tape (or the beginning) so there is a small tab to grab onto when unpeeling the tape from the bubble wrap or whatever it is attached to.
