So, anyway... I had been waiting for a package I ordered, to come in. The tracking number said that the item made it into my local post office the day
before. Usually I get it the DAY it comes to my local post office.
Something COMPLETELY irresponsible on the Post Office's part happened. They had been leading me around in circles about my package on the phone,
saying they will call me back, yet don't, and saying anything except the honest truth that they lost my package.
So, I make one more attempt to call and see if my mail carrier has returned with it yet before they close, so I can come and get it. The guy on the
phone sounded EXTREMELY pissed off at me for inquiring. Of course, ending the call with "We will CALL you BACK!!" And hanging up.
Finally, almost midnight, my mother returns from the hospital and tells me that she got a package of mine in her mailbox !!!!
I have no idea what to make of this. Our first names are kinda similar(Cassandra, Cynthia), and we have the same last name, and live on the same road,
in the same town. Yet this package clearly had MY name and address on it.
Is this a common mistake, to deliver mail to people with similar names in similar areas, yet the wrong person? Is this a MAJOR problem of negligence
that happens often?
What if there were people in the same area, with the same last name, who didn't know one another? Would this happen often that they all get one
anothers' mail or what? This has been bothering me pretty badly, and I just can't imagine I am the only one who has had this happen to. But do many
never even find out?
