Thread: Diaper Shipping Dillemas

  1. #1

    Default Diaper Shipping Dillemas

    Anyone have any interesting shipping failures to share? Screw ups on either end can lead to some awkward situations. Unfortunately, I recently screwed up one of my diaper orders...

    So yesterday, as I was going through my amazon stuff, I noticed I made a terrible mistake. I accidentally sent an order of diapers to my parents house! At first I panicked, but then I remembered the time of year. I told my aunt (who lives in the same house) I accidentally sent a package that may or may not be a present, and I was hoping she would drop it off when it came on her way to work, since she goes right by my house.

    Unfortunately, my aunt is frustratingly clever, and I not so much. She just looked at me and asked, "Why not just leave it here? You'll be visiting again on the 23rd. You can wrap it then. Nobody will open it." I claimed I just wanted it ASAP so I could wrap it and be done with it. At which point another relative replied, "It's obviously for him." She said she'd do it anyway, but my plan kind of backfired in my face. (As a side note, I swear Amazon better not deviate from their standard discreet shipping, or I might go jump off a cliff.)

    So... yeah. I hope that goes well.

    FedEx store pickup has worked wonders for me in shipping dillemas.

    i got one.

    about 3 months ago, i ordered two packs of diapers from an online pharmacy, and had them sent to a nearby abandoned house, so i wouldn't have to risk a possibilty of getting them delivered to my house while one of my parents could be home and ask me about what i ordered. i pulled off an all nighter so i wouldn't oversleep and at 7am i was already at the abandoned house, waiting for the delivery guy. time went by and i was sitting there, smoking a cigarette and surfing the web on my phone to pass the time. then when i was around half way done with my cigarette, i hear a loud noise of the window blinds pulling up. turns out the house wasn't abandoned and someone was inside. i panicked, ran away and hid in the bushes behind the house not knowing what to do. i couldn't decide if i should wait in the bushes until the delivery van arrives and risk the housr owner seeing me and coming out, resulting jn an awkward situation, or if i should just go home. while i was thinking, i heard the delivery van pull over at the house. i ended up returning home empty handed.

    and another one, which i'll keep short: i ordered a bunch of drynites online and when i got them delivered, i saw the delivery guy looking at some piece of paper taped to the box. later when i got the box in my room i looked at that paper and it said: huggies drynites girls diapers. it was a little awkward

    The worst experience I ever had was ordering some very baby looking plastic pants from Fetware. One was blue, the other pink, and they had the Carousel baby animal prints on them. For some strange reason, the ordering software picked up our daughter's address from our computer, rather than our home address, and sure as sh*t, they were sent to her. Several days after ordering, we got this horrible phone call from her asking if I had ordered these strange baby plastic pants that were huge! My wife and I did some ridiculous creative lying and said that some company must have sent them to the wrong person, and that we'd send them back so we didn't get charged for something that...."we didn't order". Sometimes being an adult baby has it suckier moments.

    I have had a couple semi awkward experiences. I bought a pack of I think 30 goodnites from groupon. According to the site, it said it was discreet. I went to pick it up at a ups facility and there was a sheet of paper taped to it that said "GIRLS GOODNITES UNDERWEAR" and still in the original box. My first case of diapers I had delivered directly to my house also said something about "briefs" on the side of the brown box.

    Just a few weeks ago I had a delivery of Abena m4's from Amazon and, although it said discreet shipping, still arrived in the original box. While it didn't scream diapers, it did say Abr-form on it I believe. Now I'm at the point where I'm pretty whatever about it if it's people I don't know. But it can still be a bit of an adrenaline rush.

    Oh my gosh, that's a heck of a backfire! Did the person just move in, or were they a squatter, I wonder?

    I hope she believed you! I've discovered over the years that I'm a terrible liar. I probably couldn't pull that off.

    Yeah, I've gotten to a similar point. I live in an apartment where all the residents' mail is just left at the door. If I had gotten really nosy neighbors, I wouldn't be surprised if they figured out I order diapers now and again. But eh, I barley know em, and I won't be around for long.

    A few years ago I moved back to London on my own from Portsmouth where we had moved as a family a few years before. My card was registered to my parents house and I accidentally swapped the billing and shipping addresses when I placed quite a big order and didn't realise until I got the text message from DPD saying your driver is enroute and 12 stops away. So I got in the car, and somehow didn't die, or have my licence taken away for me for speeding, and completed the normally hour and a half journey from Wimbledon to Portsmouth in about 40 minutes to intercept the parcel. The adrenaline was flowing!

    Why did they get delivered to your neighbors?

    next time have the depot hold them. you have nosey neighbors, they shouldn't be opening unexpected deliveries not addressed to them.

    Ups delievered to the right house # wrong street, unfortunately I live in a pretty rural area and the ups facility is about an hour from my residence. Ups has also delivered other things to the same neighbors that were mine, I have called each time to complain, the last time I made the driver go back to the house and deliever it to my house, hopefully that will instill a good memory of my address vs the other wrong address
