A Key, With Air Bags

You'd think the BMW had air bags enough, but apparently the new key we ordered needs the kind of protection you might expect for your own brain pan.  When I get a package like this from Amazon or some other place, protecting a thing like a key or some other tiny gizmo, I can't help imagining some worker in a warehouse.  In this case, he's got the little envelope in hand, wandering along looking for a box:  "Nope, too small, too small, too small . . . AHA, just right!  All I need now is a half-dozen pillows to protect this delicate key."  I'm sure there's a reason for such packaging, but don't these people know about padded envelopes?
