Temptation package

Taking the UK-Denmark postal express can be tough love for an Amazon package. My most recent acquisition had to be taped back together during the ordeal before reaching its destination. The contents was fine. But that wasn't my concern, when I opened the package. My concern was that extra package inside mine.

Obviously, some postal worker had accidently included that second Amazon delivery when he tapped mine back together. The intended recipient was some Jesper guy living in the same postal code as me.

His package was much smaller than mine. Just a single book. That didn't stop my curriosity, though. Even with five brand new books, I was still immensely tempted by that another book. That unknown book.

I'd like to tell you that I did the honorable thing, and threw the book back in the mail box unopenened, because it was the right thing to do. But I can't. Well, it was a distant second, at least. The real reason is the annoying wrapping Amazon uses for single book deliveries, which doesn't lend itself well to be opened without leaving signs of the intrusion.

Damn glue.
