    A package that contained a $350,000 government drone sent from an Air Force base in Tampa, Fla., was "misdelivered" by UPS to a college student.

    Reddit user Seventy_Seven, who has declined to release his real name, discovered the box on his doorstep. The college student lives somewhere in the northern U.S.

    "I had ordered a weightlifting bench (which I received) and this came with it," he wrote with photos of the item. "Both boxes has UPS labels with my name and address."

    It looks like it was addressed to the student so not the drivers fault. Either shipper error, wrong label got stuck to it going through the system, or a bad address correction. Since its an irreg I would guess wrong label got stuck on it.

    I like the old high value with no signature required.

    Isn't the term "Government Drone" an oxymoron?

    Just the opposite, almost everyone in Washington is a drone. And unfortunately, half this country is filled with them.
