Well not really. But I just wanted a catchy title. So, I ordered my fiance’s boutonniere on Etsy over a month ago. I had it sent to my job (precisely so I wouldn’t miss its delivery), but hadn’t seen hide nor hair of it. So I emailed the seller a few times trying to figure out what happened. She eventually told me “Melissa received your gift and was very happy and excited. May I tell her you the were one who sent it?”
*tires screeching* err, what?
Well, evidently, my name had been left off the shipping label, so it was just my company name. And my coworker, Melissa, who got married recently thought that someone had sent her an anonymous wedding gift. And not only assumed it was for her (it didn’t have a name on it), but kept it. I actually give Melissa a bridal shower gift, so after some thought I realized I didn’t need to feel bad about asking for it back.
She gave it back to me this morning and she seemed to take it pretty well, but I thought the story was too bizarre not to share with the hive. I mean…who does that?

@Overjoyed: who would send her a random boutineirre (sp) off of Etsy? -_- derp

That is SO weird! Why would someone send her a wedding gift at her office? I love how she just assumed it was for her. SO WEIRD

I just wanted to post “YOU TEASE!” I read the title and was SO picturing Anne Hathaway running and jumping on top of Kate Hudson!… Which is what you should have done to her when you found out she kept your bout!

This sounds like a seller error. Why wouldn’t she put your name on the label?

Ridiculous. If the package is not addressed to anyone, the first thing I would do is ask around to see if someone was expecting it. Also, wouldn’t there be a packing slip with the buy’s name? Dur.

@lindseyl06: LOL I want to go home and watch that now after work.
That’s weird, wouldn’t she ask around. I mean I would. I got a Valentine from work (with my name on it) and I asked EVERYONE to find out who sent it to me. Wouldn’t she do the same thing about flowers from ETSY with NO NAME on the package. WTH?

Also, fail on the seller’s part to put your name on the label. If that happened where I worked, they’d probably have a bomb sniffer dog pocking at it just in case.

Why on earth would someone who is already married think a bout was a wedding gift for her?
That girl has her brain turned way too far in on itself. I’m really glad you got the bout back.

Ha wow, that is so weird. Who would be like oh look a boutineere, it must be for me!

I kinda got a chuckle out of that story! I still can’t believe the seller didn’t put anything on it with your name. I’ve always received a little note inside my Etsy purchases thanking me personally for my purchase and hoping I enjoy it. Can you post a pic of the bout? I want to see what this hot item looks like!

@NurseMandie: it just came on Lifetime this past Sunday. Can you believe that to this day I STILL miss the part where their date was moved to the same day? That’s the ONLY part I haven’t seen 🙁

OMG, if you only knew where I work, lol! I’m surprised a package address in such a shoddy manner even made it all the way to the front door of the building, let alone where Melissa could get her grubby paws on it.
I have no clue why the sender didn’t put my name on the label. But it was addressed by hand and I only just noticed that the address was not quite right (numbers transposed). I’m lucky it didn’t get tossed in the incinerator with the other “suspicious mail.”

What seller sends a package without the NAME on the lable?
Who would think someone would send a boutineer as a post-wedding gift?
Why would she think it was for her when YOU are planning a wedding?
How did the seller know Melissa was pleased with it? Did Melissa contact her? When Melissa contacted her, why didn’t she contact YOU to make sure it was sent to the right person? I mean, wouldn’t you have TOLD HER it was an anon gift so she wouldn’t include the price or anything?
