I sent off a box of stuff to the kid, and she got a notice that it was at the post office.
She delayed a bit about picking it up, because of needing someone with an id for the address to come with her and all her id was still US.
So she got there, finally, with her roommate, BUT SOME OTHER S. WALSH HAD ALREADY PICKED IT UP? It hadn’t been addressed to S. It, and all the customs stuff, was clearly “Sarah”. But the counter person released it to someone who only went by S. And if SHE had to have id with her address, wouldn’t S. have had to as well? Though there are a bunch of ## at ## as part of the address. So it could be a neighbor saying that number was a mistake?
We don’t know much more yet, because she still has to contact police and all. So we’re just trying to figure it out.
So, anyway, how the hell did this happen? Is this a common thing with Australian mail? Can I not mail stuff to her safely?
(And it had favorite clothing, and books, and stuffs. Damn.)
