I see Dead People

Mondays tend to throw me the odd curve ball.

Today there was a parcel on my desk (addressed to my business). So I did what you do and opened it.

There were two dead people inside! Nicely cremated and wrapped in bubble wrap, mind...

And a note to say that a relative of theirs would be collecting them in a few weeks (he's visiting my area and thought that seeing as how my surname and his were the same and all, I have no probs hosting the pair for a while)

Sweet

Does kinda beg the question why did he not just pop 'em in his carry-on luggage? Here, maybe they're not people. Maybe they're Class A drugs?

Reminds me of a story about a family who flew into India with grandma in an urn to scatter her ashes. It was mid summer and the airport had those cooling fans fitted to the ceiling all over the place. Customs took an interest in the package, and well you can guess the rest. The ceiling fans must have been on high speed and grandma was distributed nicely all over the arrivals hall

Never heard of anything like this before. I'd also be pretty suspicious of it being a contraband. I can't imagine anybody sending the ashen remains of a loved one to a total stranger for later pickup (esp. with no prior arrangements). Seems like a police matter to me.

I think I'd be checking out where they were sent from very carefully!
