You've got mail
One time my dad received a black box in the mail about the size of a book. He seemed excited since he wasn’t expecting a package. I didn’t see him open it but about a half hour later he was pretty angry at me and he wouldn’t say why. I assumed it was about the package, he must have either been disappointed in the contents or it contained something personal. He didn’t talk to me the rest of the day. I ordered an adult diaper sample pack in his name two weeks earlier. (Brandonono)
A mystery left unsolved
When I was about 20, I got a package in the mail. It was addressed to me in Seattle with no return address and a postmark from Plano, Texas.
In the box, wrapped in a circular from a grocery store (presumably local to Texas) was a cheap plastic magnifying glass and one of those plastic pipes you blow bubbles with. Nothing else.
I always assumed the pipe and magnifying glass were supposed to signify Sherlock Holmes and perhaps a mystery to be solved. I scoured the box and contents for additional clues but to no avail.
This was nearly 20 years ago. No other packages or clues ever arrived. It’s been a mystery ever since and I have never and will never forget about it. (m_mf_v)
I worked at a pizza place and I ended up in the newspaper because we did a parade. I received a letter from someone telling me to seek Jesus and that the pizza place was evil. (MrRambles)
