Source — A Massachusetts woman has sued FedEx, claiming the company mistakenly sent her a package containing seven pounds of marijuana, then gave her address to the intended recipients, who later showed up at her door. Maryangela Tobin of Plymouth said in the suit filed Feb. 12 that by disclosing her address, the company violated state privacy laws and put herself and her children in danger. “I feel like the safety of my daughters and myself was invaded and it makes things complicated,” she told WBZ-TV. “I walk into my house first every time, my kids don’t.”
Tobin said she thought the package was a birthday present for her daughter, because when she opened it, she found candles, pixie sticks and peppermint. There was also something she thought was potpourri, but it was marijuana. Tobin said that about an hour later, a man knocked on her door looking for the package, while two men sat in a vehicle in her driveway, waiting. She said she didn’t have it, and bolted and slammed the door. Tobin claims FedEx gave out her address, which led the men to her home.
Let me wrap this case up in a bow for FedEx here. They offer online tracking of all their shipments. Boom, done. Just so happens it ended up at Squaresville McBragsalot’s house. We get it. You have kids and you don’t want them to die. Pretty sure that’s most everybody who has kids lady. While you’re trying to humble brag about how great a mom you are, you forgot that you’re kind of a dick for not just giving this dude his package. Somehow you thought it was just candles and potpourri. So when somebody tells you it got delivered to the wrong address, just give it back and say sorry for the confusion. ESPECIALLY give it back if it’s a bunch of drug dealers sitting in a Civic who you think are gonna go Keyser Söze on your ass if you call the cops. Jesus. Get with the times and watch some Weeds or Breaking Bad.
Seriously, wanna be a good mom? LEARN WHAT POT LOOKS LIKE. Internet, television, your local middle school. Not too difficult to get with the times. A little effort might come in handy when you’re finding bags of pixie stick dust and Smarties with odd stamps on them in your daughters’ purses.
