I've been frantically trying to type this, Dude. This is our concern Dude: that you won't spend $12 dollars for a mouse pad that will really tie your desk together, and a mug that will make sure that you're finishing your coffee. We... I - the royal We, bought this product, but you haven't bought it yet. Since you have failed to achieve, even in the most modest task that was in your charge, since you have stolen my money, since you have unrepentently betrayed my trust, I have no choice but to tell these bums to do whatever is necessary to recover their $12 from you. And with Brandt as my witness, I will tell you this: Any further harm visited upon your personal enjoyment of a Lebowski mouse pad and coffee cup will be visited tenfold upon your head. My God sir, I will not abide another toe!
Perhaps I was a little harsh. It's.. it's, it's a fun mouse pad okay man?
As for packaging, the Achiever certificate is folded in 4ths, which is silly--if I actually wanted to do anything with it, I'd have to iron out the folds. I might as well just print one up myself. Not a big deal, but it is a sign that whoever made this didn't put much thought into how it was going to be used. Far worse, though, is the mouse pad, which is the real reason I bought this--to really tie the cube together. It's rolled up in the box ... and what does rubber want to do when it's been rolled up for some time? It wants to stay rolled up. Not very useful as a mouse pad, but hey, at least it smells like horrible chemicals! Here's hoping placing it under some heavy books for a day or two fixes that, but if not it's going back.
Edit: After two weeks of trying to flatten out the mouse pad, it's still keeping its rolled-up shape. I'm lowering my review to two stars. I'd put it at one, but the mug holds coffee, so ... I guess I basically bought an expensive mug with poor quality control. Not recommended.
I don't want to sound un-dude but I work at a desk and the mug and mouse pad were the big draws for me with this package.
My only issue
The mouse pad is rolled up with the image facing in when it was packaged. This causes the pad to roll up on the edges when you put it on your desk. I have put it under heavy books, wrapped it with rubber bands, and even taped the corners to my desk and it still wants to roll up. Currently i have it wrapped up with rubber bands in a drawer of my desk. I am gonna let it sit for a month or two and see if this helps.
This would be an easy fix if the mouse pad was rolled up with the image facing out when packaged. Yes, with the image out it could be damaged but it comes in a box and the only thing loose in the box is the toe, and I dont think the toe would cause any damage to the image on the mouse pad.
With that said it is still an awesome gift for any achiever and for under $12 the price cant be beat.
F*** it. Let's go bowling.
Seriously this is a great value and I would give it 6 stars if I could.
As the previous reviewer noted, the acheivement certificate is folded in fourths, and that is a slight detriment, but they probably had no choice in order to get it into the chosen packaging.
And remember, if anybody tries to get you to join in their Wii bowling on Saturdays: we don't roll on Shabbas.
