Tis the season to send out holiday packages. While most of the time they get to their destinations without any issues, there are occasional delays or even a package getting lost. A package going missing for a decade is rare. It happened!
According to KITV a man sent a returned package. Not knowing what it was and not having recently ordered anything, he thought maybe it was a surprise Christmas present. His wife saw the date on the front, June 27, 2011 and it was marked returned to sender. Inside was a parachute bag according to Sascha Schnilder, the man to whom the package belonged.
He ordered the package from a company in Belgium. It was too small so Schindler returned it. That package was sent back to him 10 years later. Schindler says he has no idea where is was for the last decade. The U.S. Postal Service were also unable to determine what happened and say the tracking system used for packages doesn't go back that far.
Schindler received a formal apology. He is unsure if he received a refund but say's this makes an interesting story.
