knedgecko: It's condoms, not a land mine. Explain to the kid that they are something for adults and move on.


Or you could make these nice balloon animals.

mod3072: My brother had a weird incident a few years ago. He got a rather large charge on his debit card that he didn't make. Several days later, a box arrived at our parent's house, addressed to him (he was in his early 20's and going to school and hadn't lived with the folks for a few years). The box contained a high-end pocket pussy, a nice watch, some personal lubricants, and a box of "fancy" condoms. He never did figure out who did it (or so he claims). The bank ate most of the charge, but my mom had to take the box of goodies to our local, very-small-town bank and turn them in. I kind of wish I could have been there to see that.


Sounds like the same virus I got on my computer a few years ago, for like a few months at around 2-3am it was randomly ordering the stupidiest stuff off amazon, ebay and various porn sites.  I tried to stay up and catch it in the act but always end up blacking out after a few beers so I suspect it was displaying some pattern on the screen during this time, I'd always just wake in my chair to an inbox of order receipts and open browser tabs.  I cured it by installing openBSD, you can't do nothing on openBSD.  Phew.

Yes this is dog: mrlewish: By refusing to release without a subpoena Amazon is actually helping the couple. Hint, hint, Amazon wants a subpoena served so they can cross all the Ts and dot all the Is so what ever happens to the dirt bag that sent it sticks instead of being suppressed should a case arise.

It also washes Amazon's hands of any liability if the jerk who sent the condoms ends up having a little 'accident.'


Exactly,

I work for a major telco as a tech manager.  And I get tons of esclated calls about "you need to tell me the text messages, emails, what apps they are using etc"

And I always say "if your life is in danger then call the cops and have them call me" .

If I gave out the information I would be liable as the company if something happened.

The other day I got a call because a lady had her text message to voice reading turned on.

Turned out she was sitting on the couch with her husband and her lover texted her and the phone read a pretty explicit text message, and she was going to sue me, the company, and Samsung, because of her own stupidity.

For those of you wondering how a kid could order something from Amazon in a prank-situation:
I've got my amazon login saved on my computer, and all my billing and credit card info saved on my account.  I don't have to enter anything at all when I order something.  I would imagine that a lot of people do this too.  So I can see a kid easily ordering something while their parent isn't right there in the room watching.
And this seems like exactly the kind of prank an 8-10 year old kid would pull.  I remember being that age, and kids tittering about all kind of weird, largely false, sexual info.  If one kid learns what condoms are, they share it with everyone, and then everyone whispers about how  condoms are used for  sex.  Some kid looks up "condom" on the home computer, gets a bright idea, and 5 mins later the prank is in motion.


/csb
When I was around that age, some of the guys in my class, who had been routinely picking on me, called my dad's house and left what was, to 8-10 year olds, a vulgar message.  Unfortunately for them, I was at my mom's house that weekend, so my dad heard the message first, called up the kids' parents--because the little dipshiats said their names, they started the message with "this is jack, kyle, and dumbfark"--and explained that their kids were idiots.
The message was actually pretty funny, involving a lot of stupid words like "gazongas" and other made up "vulgarities."  Probably one of the best things my dad ever did was to play the message for me (he mentioned the whole incident and I asked to hear it; I was curious) while just dying with laughter.  It was a powerful lesson for me, in terms of just how stupid and ineffective those guys were being.  Completely destroyed the power those guys were starting to build over me with their bullying.  Next time they tried to fark with me, I pointed out that at least I wasn't dumb enough to say my own name on a crank call, and then they never talked to me again.

Possibly, but they would have to have access to a debit or credit card to order it from Amazon.

If is someone at her school then it's more likely an adult.

She might have the same name as her whore mom, and mom is pinning it on the kid

Let's imagine for a moment that you're a child in the 8-10 years old range. How do you think most store personnel would react if you tried to buy a pack of condoms?

Whereas ordering them online isn't going to get you a crapload of questioning from concerned adults.

The package was addressed to their daughter, Gianna.

"There was no explanation behind it," Christine Angelides said. "Until I get answers, I don't know what to make of it."

Yeah I don't understand the Amazon hate here. It's not like anyone's life is in immediate danger, so they should go through the proper channels and procedures. It shouldn't be easy for them to just fork over personal information like that.


Exactly, we turn over records as soon as court/lawyer contacts us with proper documentation.

I had a call yesterday.  Customer lost her iphone(iphone customers the worst) and she said "you need to tell me where my phone is" I responded did she have her find my iphone app installed.  "no because I do not want people tracking me" Yet she was asking us to do the same thing.

my theory is the dad sent them. Hes having and affair, needed some condoms, but couldnt ensure that hed get to the package before his wife.. so he sent it anonymously in his daughters name. If he gets the package first, great. but if not.. Hey must be some perv from the internets. perfect excuse.

Possibly her granny or grandpa, who were ordering for themselves but made an oopsy on the "Ship To" button.
