One of those times was today. I went into the mailroom today to get my mail and someone had propped a package up on the mailbox where everyone leaves misdelivered stuff. It had my name on it, but someone had written on it, “Delivered to wrong apt.” The sender had not included the apartment number, so I guess it was randomly delivered to someone in the complex.
But how nice! They left it in the mailroom so I could pick it up! And then I turned it over, and it had been opened and inexpertly resecured with tape.
I suppose whatever was in it wasn’t to their taste, so they figured they might as well pass it on to the person who had ordered and paid for it. Gee, I wonder why?
Just today I was telling someone that I don’t have a lot of people in my “meatspace” life with whom I can talk about my interests. That’s why being a member of JASNA is so valuable to me, and why my online friends and Janeite community are valuable to me. And why I’m glad that my odd (to the rest of the world) book choices aren’t attractive to my neighbors. I’m looking forward to reading this…it may or may not be research. *cough* Of course everyone reading this blog post would find this book interesting, no doubt! I don’t think it’s available in the U.S. yet, but I was able to order it from The Book Depository, with free shipping.
