I Received A Package Today, by Will Saunders

Today, Saturday, I received a package in the mail. It was a small square box, approximately six by six by six. I’m a shop-a-holic. Someone once called me a Shoppingnista. So, there I was, racking my brain trying to think of what it might be. I thought I had already received everything I ordered, except for the couple of things I recently ordered that surely hadn’t had enough time to get here. I figured it must be an early birthday present from some sweet soul (my birthday is April 24th).

So, I ripped it opened to find a $25 Visa gift card and an extra large, supersized Dark Chocolate Hershey Bar. I was thinking whoever sent this to me is someone who knows me well, someone who remembered that I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate or white chocolate. It made me smile. I reached for the card to see who sent it, but I don’t know “Fran and Caron” – the names penned inside the card. I looked at the box to discover the package was addressed to someone else. Oops! I guess I had opened someone else’s package. The address was correct but the person to whom it was addressed doesn’t live here. I thought it was a little unorthodox for someone to send me a birthday present three weeks early. That’s the kind of peculiar thing that I might do.  (LMAO)  I don’t think anybody else would do that.

Here’s the really weird part: The surname of the person to whom the package was addressed is the same as mine. I have no idea who it is. If I knew who this mystery person is, I would have taken it to her. [As an aside, someone did that for me a few yeas ago – a woman brought a package to me that the mail carrier misdelivered to her home, though it was addressed correctly.] Anyhow, I tried to search for her online, but nothing. So, I repackaged the items and returned them to the sender with a note that the package was not addressed correctly. I suspect he will be a little confused when he sees my name. But at least he can confirm the correct address with his friend or family member and send it again.

Let this be a lesson to you boys and girls. Double check your letters and parcels prior to sending. A wrong or incomplete address is one reason why mail never gets delivered.
