    Has anyone ever delivered a wrong package to a stop before?

    Yes. Sometimes I've had to go back to pickup and redeliver. One time I had to do a follow up with no results. And I won't deliver to a house I can't confirm the number of anymore.

    I, unlike you other thousands of other drivers, am a perfect being who never makes mitsakes.

    I once delivered three stops on a residential street...all incorrect addresses! I was on the wrong street! The correct street was the next street west that runs parallel to the street I was on...I had to go back, collect the misdelivered packages, and deliver them to the correct addresses on the correct street! Stupid!!

    Just try to get them before the resident calls and you get a message!

    I got them within 5 minutes of delivering them....thankfully, all three were still at their respective front doors!

    The ones I love are the people that call in when it's just the next door neighbor who is less then 10 yards away.

    No, never have been caught doing that. :)

    There have been a couple times that I have caught myself handing a package to a dock person, and they say "wait that doesn't go here" and I'd double check the consignee and I was wrong...it was next door at different business, or maybe there was none on there. That might be a Monday funk thing.

    Billy Ray God, help us all.....

    There are no wrong packages; you simply delivered to an address other than the one on the label.

    Why would you do that?
