The thing is to be 'less specific'. Do not lie...that's 'Mail Fraud'. Claiming it to be 'old tennis shoes' would be wrong. But there are levels of specificity... and hobby supplies is about right I'd think.

Now...I'm not a Constitutional scholar, but I think you're totally within your rights to tell a postal employee to take a flying leap if challenged as to the contents of a package. You should tell them what it's NOT...you know, explosives, perishable, dead cats, etc.

I don't deal much with UPS, but as far as the post office goes, I don't think they're even supposed to ask what the specific contents are. They have a standard litany of "Fragile? Liquid? Potentially hazardous?" but that's about it. Sometimes they switch it up with "Perishable?". Tuesday when I mailed they threw me off with some new ones. "Perfume? Lithium batteries?" I'm starting to suspect the postal clerks are doing their shopping while on the job, determining which packages to "accidentally" tear open. I thought it was a bit odd when the clerk at the next window asked the customer "Fragile? Perishable? Size eleven loafers?".

I really like my post office. They provide me with bubble wrap and tape for free. She even helped me wrap up the bbq sauce like a mummy and placed it in thick plastic bag in case it broke, it wouldn't get on my other contents. cheers Sucks for you guys with postal workers that go postal. lol!

It is all potpourri to me. I would gladly throw some toby in a jar and have it smell up the house....regardless of any objections.

On 3/27/13 I received 2 unexpected packages from BoB, not knowing quite why or how I could get so lucky. What I couldn't figure out was the sauce! I thought it was a BoB thing. It was great because I happen to LOVE hot sauce and FRANKS was one of them. One of the notes even said, "Enjoy the Destruction" I thought they were refering to the aftermath of what the hot sauce would do. I didn't bother to look into it, completely unaware of what would come next.

This evening, 3/28/13, as I walk into my apartment, the doorman starts complaining about the space I'm taking up in the delivery closet. I had received 10 packages, in a day, which is a tenants record. He tells me I need to bring a cart to carry it all. I thought someone was playing a prank until he brings out the payload.

HOLY FRAK! Even my 28 month old said WOW. You can see the warhead in the first picture. I hadn't even recovered from the shipment the day before.

From 8:15 till 10:20 EST, I was being bombarded with all these wonderful "aromatic" tobacco blends and SAUCE! LOTS and LOTS of Sauce! Inside were the same types of notes.

I was SOO happy that I have all this tobacco, even rubbed it in my wife's nose how well pipe smokers treat each other. All she cared about was cleaning up the mess. You can see the destruction in pic 2 and my quick attempt to bring some order in number 3. I kept wondering what is this fetish with Sauce? So I did a Google search and came upon this thread.

Read it from start to finish and I couldn't stop laughing! cheers

This drove my apt upside down, but I'm fortunate to be a part of it.

My only concern is the SAUCE see pic 4! Some of that stuff should be illegal and as much as I really do put that sh#t on everything, I'm not sure if I can handle this one. It's a good thing I have a toddler and plenty of baby wipes, also in the pic.

Cheers to you all!

I find it extremely rewarding that our humble little Squadron of merry pranksters was uncovered via a google hot sauce search. I also love it that today's packages outsized your very cute little one. Nice.

Piles and piles of boxes and mailers piled up in some poor guy's bedroom...nothing like some good, old fashioned aftermath.
Enjoy it, Charles!

Yeah, and I think that's day one's load...right?

Jeez! It covers the bed and looks like its climbing up the wall!

I hope they have a dog. That'll at least give the poor guy somewhere to sleep. lol
