He's lucky that he only got children's clothes. I was out of bobcats.

When I was moving from the US to Europe, I mailed a bunch of stuff to the new address.

Most of the packages came pretty quickly, but one was taking a really long time.

Then, one day I got a call from the Postal Customs that there's a package for me. They said I could come to the office or they could open and inspect it while I was on the phone. I said they can just do it right there and then.

But I still had to go pick up the package at the customs.

So I went there, and when I got the package it had the obvious Opened by Customs tape on it, but it was all torn up and mangled. I didn't think anything of it, since I could tell it was my package, so I took it home.

When I opened it up at home, the content was nothing what I had mailed. My model cars were gone. But there were some CD's in there and an unmarked VHS tape. (This was years ago)

I popped the VHS in.

It was Spice Girls The Movie.

dear cheap arsehole,

you didn't lose your father twice.

You lost him once, then you lost his ashes.

You work at the USPS, you get packages torn open by the machines and contents strewn about, you pick up the contents, put them back in the boxes, and send them on. Not like you have any way of knowing what belongs in which package.

You can send human remains via the post office? Good to know.

A favorite story: trash biographer Albert a Goodman had a heart attack and died in London while over there for an interview show. His family really didn't care about him so he was creamayed. Eventually the executor of his estate made arrangement for his remains to be returned to the States. Via FedEx.

They never arrived.

So I can't send a bottle of shampoo, but these people can send human remains?

I mailed a live iguana once. Was moving from MD to CA, and couldn't take him on the plane with me. Went down to the local USPS office to see if there was some astronomically weird chance I might be able to do an overnight mail option. As it turns out, it is legal to send live alligators through the mail, so the postmaster saw no problem with sending my beloved Iggy via overnight express mail, seeing as how alligator=reptile=iguana. So - went home, made sure Iggy was nice and hydrated and happy, then rolled him up in a towel, stuffed him in a blueprint tube marked FRAGILE THIS END UP, and off he went on his adventure. He made it to the other side of the country unscathed.

True story.
