Matt and I picked up a mysterious “gift” from the post office today. We received a note in our mailbox Friday informing us that there was a parcel at the post office for us to pick up. Apparently, they had attempted to deliver it to our house, but it had to be signed for. Both of us were quite surprised because we were not expecting any packages.
So, this morning we set out for the post office and received a small nondescript package postmarked Shanghai, China. Still stumped! So we ripped it open as we were walking to the car, and it turned out to be a Saxo Bank bicycling jersey and padded shorts in sizes medium and small respectively, with no note or invoice. Even more stumped.
Neither of us ordered these items and quite honestly both of us are bicycle commuters who have little to no use for such clothing. We immediately called any of our family and friends who could have possibly sent the items to us, and no one has any idea where they might have come from.
Seeing that we had the mystery clothes, we of course each tried them on hoping that it might at least clear up who they were meant for. The small shorts were far too small on me but seemed to fit Matt fine, while the medium top fit both of us. Further stumped!
To make matters even more confusing, these are NOT cheap bicycling clothes. Matt did a quick google search, and they were $80 a piece. He did, however, find sets on ebay (sold in China) for much less that are most likely knock offs.
So, we are left wondering, where did these clothes come from, who were they intended for, are they the real deal or knock offs, and what on earth should we do with them.
