Mr James? Coat in a parcel?

Postby GrahamNR17 » 20 Jul 2011, 12:36pm

If you recognise the subject line, then please get in touch.

I just received a parcel containing an item of clothing, which I believe has been wrongly sent to me (in fact, I know it has!) The label inside said clothing has hand-written reference to "James" and "CTC", possibly from the CH60 or CH61 area.

There was no return address label, no note inside, so whoever you are, please get in touch if you want your coat back! I'm now worried I gave you money for something I've forgotten about :shock: :lol:

Yes, I opened it, saw the colour, and though "eww".

But then I unfurled it last night while trying to gain clue as to the origin, and it started to dawn on me what it was. Not seen one in years.

See what I mean about the memory or maybe the coat is pristine and he is manky and old. :wink: :roll:

Do I remember correctly, is there a James residing at the address the coat was delivered to?

Now we are getting to the bottom of this. The parcel was really for the James residing at that address in a chicken house.
The coat is to keep James warm and snug as the place of residence at the moment is not that warm and snug.
So Graham I feel you have a choice to make either give the coat to James (the correct name on the address label) or bring James out form the cold so that the coat is no longer needed.

Is it some form of offence to keep mail addressed to another person?

Probably, but it was addressed to me :mrgreen: The name "James" was hand-written on the label inside the jacket. I've double-checked, and it doesn't says "Edwards" :P

Seems like a good result for you. I am only teasing.
Somebody must think you have done something that deserves a nice present. Enjoy
