Lazy postmant!

I shopped for several months, looking for an AKG BX series reverb. Found a BX-10 here through a WTB thread, coming from Canada. Got it delivered to work, get called that I have a package, race up to the front of the store, and watch as the postman is rolling the box end over end up the front steps. I calmly, yet excitedly proclaim, "Please (I even said please) don't roll it end over end!" To which he says, "Oh, it's very heavy." To which I say, "I know, it's a guitar amp. (I didn't feel like explaining what it actually was) Turning it upside down can damage it."
Granted, it was a little over 50 pounds, poor schmuck is probably used to delivering credit card offers, but don't they make hand trucks for this reason? Don't people ask for help?
Will have to wait until I get it home and fire it up to see if all is okay.

of course the title should read postman. not postmant
