…and it turns up later than expected like this.

Completely empty.

When You Send a Friend a Package...

The note on the bag added insult to injury, as it states they regret the ‘damage’ to the mail. What damage?! All the frigging contents were taken!

I cannot begin to stress how annoyed I am about this. I mean, really? I know life can be hard at times, but this takes the biscuit.

The likelihood of the person(s) who stole the contents to be reading this is very slim, but I will say this anyway, “You’re a flipping knob. My friend was looking forward to her creams and British chocolates. Next time, rather than stealing, write to me at the return address at the back of the package. You never know, I may actually send you some.”

  1. I’ve gotten a few of these in my lifetime. Most of the time it was due to getting hung up in the stamp cancelling machine. That may be what happened here. I can see it now. A few workers scratching their heads and asking “should we eat them?”
    So sorry. I don’t imagine they offered a refund. 😥

  2. We had a big spate of this last year – local people, me included, claimed to the Post Office that these were internal thefts at the sorting office. We were given complaint numbers and heard no more

  3. That is utterly ridiculous and so low. Not only did your friend have the stuff that you sent her stolen, but the USPS is not offering any kind of compensation for this when it was one of their employees! In the words of Michelle Tanner, “HOW RUDE!”
    On another note, I like your usage of the words “biscuit” and “knob”
    made me chuckle.
    Maybe if it isn’t too expensive you could try sending your friend the stuff next time using UPS, FED Ex or DHL. Not sure if they are available in your area but it might be worth looking into.
    Reblogged on my site and will share this on other social avenues if it’s okay

    • I know, right? It was a little surprise, as I know her love of this particular cream and British chocolate. Nope. Didn’t get it. I’m surprised to be honest. As well as disgusted.
      Tee hee. Glad you had a chuckle. Thinking about it, they are quite funny!
      I’m thinking of trying again. I will ring around to check out prices. Thanks.
      No problem at all. In fact I’m glad you rebloged this post. This shouldn’t be happening.
      Have a great week. P. x

    • I felt so bad for my friend, and at the same time, I was so angry at the culprits. I’m OK, Terri. I hope you are too and that you had a great weekend. xo
