Surprising presents and finds and it aint even Christmas anymore.

Post by carum carvi »

Just got delivered 75 packages of Cheese Twists by mistake. The delivery boy didnt want to take it back, said it was the right adress. Well, I think I'll start supplying my street with Cheese Twists then. :?

I have come to find and receive many things before, just by chance around the new year period. Last year I went for a stroll on new years day and just around the corner I found a 50 euro bill. Great start of the new year, I would think. But what about these Cheese Twists? Anybody want a snack? :D

Don't mind if I do! *munch*

Someone sent me a box of tea and I don't know who or why! But I'm sure it was intended as a friendly gesture, and it's nice tea.

Perhaps someone was trying to send you a message or something. Do you tell bad jokes? :mrgreen:

there is a very nice lady about 100 miles up north of me,

she sends me Tea packages every Christmas.... dunno why?

well, guess I do, I once drove up to her house, and looked at her PC and volunteered to install TeamViewer and keep it clean from home.

She then canceled her "Contract with AT&T" for Remote Help.....
I was called in one day, by reference from a mutual friend, to resolve a problem that the "hot techs at AT&T" could not resolve.

This year, it was Peanut Brittle Crunch from her Church Bazaar.... ummm, that is good.

My brother gave me a 10,000 lumen flashlight that is smaller than a soda can. Battery technology is amazing these days.

We often get stuff delivered to us for 26A, we are number 26, but there a two houses between us and 26A. and the couriers get confused. We came home one day to find some courier had left a BED on our front porch! We rang the company to come, pick it up and deliver it to the correct address, we are still waiting. Fortunately the people who were expecting it came and got it themselves. Of course, had we been less than honest, we could have denied all knowledge and they would then have to argue with the freight company.

The reason the numbering is so strange is that our house is one back from a corner as is their house and the two intervening houses are addressed on the cross street.
