Courier companies sometimes deliver the strangest of things!

Most courier companies are used to handling all types of deliveries containing all kinds of interesting items.  This is something that they take in their stride in a constant drive to deliver excellent customer service without too much ado.

However, often, the strangest of things end up in the hands of a courier that often make one gasp in disbelief!

For instance, a story from the UK is the case of a cat that ended up in the back of a Royal Mail van.   Apparently, the wayward feline had jumped into the van while the driver was making a pick-up.

Accidental ‘packages’ such as this are relatively uncommon, however, there are even stranger items that people have delivered deliberately!

From couriers being hired to ‘babysit’ a birthday cake on a commercial flight to three Black Rhinos being transported by an international courier firm from the UK to Tanzania, and there have been even stranger courier requests and deliveries still that have been made in this beautiful but crazy world of ours.

‘Immunisation’ via courier service anyone?

As parents, we all want our children to be immunised against diseases such as Chickenpox, but, there are always ways and means of doing such things and none of them include buying a dose of the disease on the internet and having it delivered via courier, right?

For every connected computer there is always someone that will try and make money using it which is not a bad thing in itself.  But, actually shipping a communicable disease has to be the worst idea ever, surely?  It has to be right up there with ‘Pox Parties’ – this is where play dates are arranged between children with Chickenpox and healthy children, which is the actual ‘thing to do’ in certain parts of the world.

Child in transit

Back in 1914, a young girl of four years of age was going on a trip to visit her grandmother.  With postage being a lot cheaper than train fare, guess how her parents decided to get their only daughter to her destination?  Back then there was a weight limit of 50 lbs for ‘package’ deliveries and the young girl came in at just under 49 lbs.  Posting chickens was, and still is, completely legal so that is the rate they paid for the girl to be ‘delivered’.  With the postage pinned to her jacket she was put in the baggage car of the train.  This actually happened, however, the mailing of ‘children’ became illegal by 1920.
