Would you open an unexpected package from an unknown sender?
- Yes - Why not?
- No - Of course not.
- Maybe - That might be a package full of Heinz Baked Beans I ordered while drunk.*
In this thread, I expressed wonder that someone would open an unexpected package from an unknown sender, which was met by surprise by some people. Now I’m curious.
Admittedly, my first job after college was in a mail room in the mid-nineties, when Ted Kaczynski was sending out his little surprises, so we’d gotten A LOT of training on letter bombs. Also, this happened down the hall from me a week into my second job.
So you could say I treat such things with suspicion.
- This tended to happen to my friend from Northern Ireland, until his wife got wise and would take his phone when he’s been drinking.
