And, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be on first-name terms with your local Post Office collection clerk, because you’re NEVER home when your parcels get delivered.
But it’s not really that much of an inconvenience. Unless, of course, you’re Ted Maher-Kirk Lindsey.
Ted was sent an advent calendar in the post but missed his delivery. He received one of those lovely red slips telling him to head to the collection office with some ID to pick up his delivery.
Well, not really. You see, Ted Maher-Kirk Lindsey is a CAT.
His owner’s mum sent him the advent calendar so he wouldn’t miss out on the festive fun, and addressed it to the four-legged friend as a joke.
It backfired when no-one answered the door (Ted has no thumbs, so it would have been tricky!) and the postie left a “Sorry we missed you card”.
This proved problematic becuase the P.O. will only hand over the package when they see some ID for Ted.
No, I haven’t had one too many mulled wines; this is a genuine tail of woe!
I hope this has made you smile today, it certainly amused me!
I don’t know about you, but I’m desperate to hear how this story ends – let’s hope Ted gets his advent calendar soon! He’s got a lot of days to catch up on!
‘till next time…
