    News story from The Consumerist:

    "UPS delivered a package to a Texas man expecting some tools he had ordered. Instead, the man found a 30-pound brick of marijuana. Apparently, the package had a Dallas address. It wasn't valid, so UPS assumed the shipper meant Denton, 40 miles away (come on, they both start with a D, whatever), and dropped it off there. The police are investigating. Meanwhile, no word on whether the man ever got his tools. Somewhere in Dallas, a stoner is building a loft."

    Difficult to believe. Usually in our bldg, when you had a bad add, someone would open the pkg to see if more information could be found inside.

    Funny I saw the Sheriff at our hub today loading pkg's in the patrol car. Usually this means drugs.

    true story here folks....... we had a lady in our dist office who was fired when LP discovered she was shipping pot through UPS, from the dist office. LP came in and took the pkg she was sending as a otpu, brought her into the mgrs office, and walked her out, under arrest. how very stupid.

    I wish I got a misdelivery of that type. And if and when anyone came to retrieve it my response would be "what package?":wink2:
