Massachusetts woman sues FedEx after marijuana package, followed by intended recipient arrives at door
PLYMOUTH, Mass. – A Massachusetts woman is suing FedEx, saying the company erroneously 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 says in the suit filed Feb. 12 the company violated state privacy laws by disclosing her address and put her and her children in danger.Okay, now, we're going to assume that the story is correct as written, because, quite frankly, "person stiffs drug dealer, blames Fed Ex" isn't as good of a story. Now, that said, I'd like to think that Fed Ex wouldn't just hand out the address of the person they delivered the package to incorrectly, as they could be a in world of hurt for that. Sadly, it would not surprise me to hear that this was the case. Wonder what would have happened if the intended recipient had kicked in the door and injured the home's occupants looking for their package?
That's gotta be one hell of a shock, though - you open up the box, thinking that the last-minute gift you ordered for your child's birthday party finally arrived only to find a box full of mary jane... I can't blame the woman for calling the cops - I'd treat that package like a radioactive owl turd myself. I'd be tempted to leave it out on the front porch until the cops arrived - last thing I'd want would be for my house to smell like a Cyprus Hill concert, you know?
There's no truth to the rumor that the woman was quoted as saying "Thank goodness it was just a box of marijuana and not new P-mags - those might have gotten me in trouble!"
That is all.
