    I am a wild animal.

    I got a package from Goodwill Industries of Denver addressed to me, even though I've never ordered anything from them before. The address label was clearly printed with my name and everything.

    It was wrapped in this weird self-adhesive brown paper and I cut the front of it to get it open, and then tore the rest of the brown paper open and I found that I was tearing whatever was in there, too, which turned out to be the dust jacket of a beautiful book called "An Introduction to the New Testament."

    I stopped tearing...took the book out, and I had torn like half of the dust jacket clean off.

    Then I took the receipt out of the book and it was meant to have been sent to some dude in Colorado.

    I taped it back up like Gary the Retard might do and dumped it into the mail box at the post office.

    How did they get my address?????

    Post it on facebook and/or ask friends and family about it. My mom once sent me a pack of gold laminated playing cards from china. It had nothing in it indicating who it was from. this was during the China lead based toys and the ricin scares and I thought it was fishy and just threw it away. I found out later my mom sent it and when she found out I tossed it she was pissed.

    Never anything addressed to me, but I did have a brand new vacuum cleaner left at my front door once.

    I've had that happen only it was fraud. Somehow someone got my credit card info and 2 packages came for me in the mail. Luckily my bank took care of it.

    I got a package sent to me back in May with a used throttle body for a 2008 Lexus. Never ordered it.

    I couldn't get a phone number for the return address, so I just mailed it back.

    I ordered a comforter bedding set and pillows online.

    They somehow duplicated my shipment. Two of everything was sent. I didn't return them. :(

    Actually, it was my halfwit neighbor. He snowbirds in Florida and was just about to head back up to NY when he ordered it. He has his mail forwarded when he is down there and didn't want it to get forwarded to Florida after he left, so he had it sent to my house without telling me. He rang more doorbell a few days after I shipped it back and asked me if I received a tail light in the mail. :facepalm:

    This happened to me three different times with Walmart. Each time I called them up about it and they just said to keep it.
