So, something very unusual happened and my husband deemed this blog worthy and I finally agreed.
At the beginning of last week, the post office left a small, soft air-bubble package at our door. It wasn’t addressed to us, but was being “returned to sender,” but we didn’t send the package. Some idiot (Isabella G) didn’t know their own address, I guess, and put down our residence. The name doesn’t match any of our neighbor’s, so we’re stumped.
Well, neither myself or my husband felt like dealing with it- so we both left the package sitting outside our front door. Toward the end of the week, my husband put it back in the mailbox…and the postman gave it right back to us. I’m guessing maybe Isabella didn’t put enough postage on package to go to Australia.
Since the package was opened to reveal the packing slip, my hubby poured out the contents for us to peruse. WTF? Crappy shoes. Dirty white shoes (well-used) and sandals that have basically about broken from the base of the shoe where the toes go. There are threads keeping it together… Who would pay $20.00 for these- plus another $30.00 for shipping? Don’t they have shoes in New South Wales? Then, I noticed it was a dude that bought ’em. WTH, is he some kind of perv?
So I look up the E-bay item number, find the seller, and e-mail her. By the e-mail verbiage written, I think the gal is young- so I tell her that the shoes are at our place because she was basically a dumb ass and put the wrong return address. However, I was nice and refrained from any name calling. She quickly replied with:
“Hello I’m so sorry. ldk what’s going on either the post office or buyer must did something?”
First of all, what is ‘ldk?’ – What am I supposed to do with that? Secondly, no, YOU put the wrong return address. My guess is she didn’t pay enough for postage?
…so I responded, basically tell me where to put them (assuming she’s close I can return them to her) or I’m tossing them in the trash. She replied to go ahead and dispose of them.
Poor Mr. Perv is not going to get what he paid for… I actually feel kind of badly. They are my size shoes- but ew. In the dumpster they shall go!
So is sender an Idiot or was this a SCAM attempt?
