Amazing Mail Deliveries

Amazing Deliveries

Putting Special Emphasis on the Word “Service” for Postal Service

While listening to an episode of  WaitWait… Don’t Tell Me!, I heard an interesting story about a letter delivery. When dug deeper on the web, I found several similar occurrences. Read on for three amazing deliveries.  I wish the USPS were as dedicated as some the postmasters mentioned below.

Scott, from Scotland

Kudos to the NZ Post for successfully delivering a letter addressed as follows:

Scott, from Scotland … aged about 60/70?? … corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 … also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history … Good sense of humour … tells a good tale … Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.

Sound more like a clue in an adventure game than an address.

The second one I encountered was had a slightly different twist. First, there was far less info. The address read:

Your man Henderson, that boy with the glasses who is doing a PhD up here at Queen’s in Belfast. Buncrana, County Donegal, Ireland

The postmaster happened to know the addressee’s wife and gave her the letter. The letter inside simply read “If this has arrived, you live in a village.”

Last But Not Least, a Map

Some text written hints are on this one but it is still like something from Zork. The address included a map.

If you know of any interesting delivery stories, letters not babies please, feel free to comment.
