An Illuminating Question

OK. Let's say, theoretically, that you ordered a bike lock from Amazon.com. And theoretically, not one, but two boxes arrived on your doorstep-- one rather small and bikelockish, and the other quite large and not very likely to contain any sort of bike locking mechanism. Now, imagine that these two theoretical boxes contained the same packing slip (for precisely one bike lock) and shared the same shipping label, as well. Suppose that the smaller box contained, perhaps somewhat unsurprisingly, a bike lock, and the large box contained a $600 Epson EX50 3LCD Multimedia Projector, XGA, 2200 Lumens. What would you do?

What would you do with this theoretical projector?

Call and offer to return it, and hope someone at Amazon doesn't lose a job over the mistake.
