Why can't this happen to me????
Only a ninny would call the cops....
# 1 The package doesn't look like a flat screen TV.
# 2 Did he check to see if it was ADDRESSED to him?
#3 He should have called UPS to pick up without opening at all.
# 4 And if you're going to open someone else's package, don't call the media and post pictures.
# 5 He's lucky it wasn't shipped via USPS. They'd bust him for opening someone else's mail.
To answer Paul:
1. Dude lives in Washington DC. Probably not in touch with reality.
2. Dude's a "musician". Probably not in touch with reality.
3. Dude opened a package that obviously wasn't what he ordered, and then called the cops instead of UPS. Probably not in touch with reality.
According to the article it sounds like the shipping label was switched at UPS.
dude paid $324 for a tv, got a gun that sells for up to $1,800, calls cops and loses his money AND the gun. Definately not in touch with reality...
USP has got some 'splaining to do.
