    Yes, another thread by me. Let the eye rolling commence!

    I had an air package for tofu last year. It was +30 Celsius out and had to be delivered by noon. Well, air meet was at 1040ish so hadn't had a chance to check that package. I looked at the address and it was directed to a business complex but no unit number OR business name.

    So, I tried the phone number on it (since it was starting to smell around 1130ish) and got a, 'the baseball diamonds around Calgary are now open' message.

    I had to drive around with this stuff for the rest of the day. It gooped (yes, gooped) ALL over my top shelf, soaked several packages (which in turn made them stink). It smelt so bad you could taste it. It was like eating something that had just waaaaay to much sugar in it.

    I think it was god punishing me for laughing at the guy at our airmeet the week before with bad fish on his truck. It went back into ECS who just threw it in the garbage :(

    The worst I loaded was 20+ boxes of frozen dead rats headed to the zoo. Unfortunately, this time they were just dead not frozen.

    The head of a Caribou on the way to the taxidermist. The box was splattered with blood.

    Fetal pigs packed in formaldehyde, being delivered to a high school science lab. Each pig was in a plastic bag; one of them ruptured, soaking the thru the cardboard and causing the box to open. :sick:

    How about a half dozen five gallon buckets of animal blood going to a guy who was making catfish bait. The 100 plus degrees temps in the back of the package car and that metal floor had the stuff pretty ripe by 2 pm.

    Any one remember, years ago, the time the human heads were shipped, and one of them fell out of the box?

    [Note to Shippers: UPS does not accept human heads for shipment, attached to bodies or unattached, even if properly packed.] :wink2:

    Here in Lynnfield, Ma. we ship Lobstah (note correct spelling and pronunciation) all over by Next Day Air. Every now and then a defrosted box is returned. The smell is horrendous!!! :sick:

    Once delivered a 5 gallon pale as I set it down, there was a maggot on my hand and noticed a few on the pale itself. I said to the receiver what ever this is it can't be good. He said no that's whats in the pale maggots, we smash them and make fishing lures.
