My Valve Store Experience From Europe

So I was checking out all the new Portal 2 stuff they have in the Valve Store and saw this track jacket I had to have. Although the price plus shipping is pretty steep at around $69, I decided to do it anyway due to favorable exchange rates ($70 is about €50) and fast shipping with DHL.
This morning I was rudely awakened by the DHL guy and guess what, I had to pay €23 import tax, f'ing great!

 Nope, these are not portals :(

  This makes the whole thing a lot more expensive (around $100), but still, I had this sweet new piece of clothing and I was still kinda happy, that is, until I tried to open the fucking DHL packaging with some scissors and this happened. FFFUUUU!! So I learned today the hard way that shipping from the US can be crazy expensive and using scissors on packaging is a big no no....
