You've most likely read recently about how I had a FedEx package stolen from me. After the driver insisted to me that he dropped it off at my house and that it must have been stolen, I chalked it up to bad Christmas Karma and had Macy's re-ship me the order (free of charge). Well, the original package just showed up at my doorstep today. It hadn't been opened, so I doubt someone took it off my porch, and it showed no signs of rough wear, so I doubt it was sitting at the bottom of a FedEx truck. So, what happened? If the driver lied to me and delivered the package to the wrong house, then why did it take so long for the person to return it to me? If it was lost in a package sort or lost on the truck, why did the FedEx guy say he delivered it to me? If someone stole it, why didn't they open it and why did they return it?
I guess it doesn't matter what exactly happened. What matters now is what do you do when you report a package stolen and it shows up anyway? I called both FedEx and Macy's to explain the new developments, thanked them both again for their great customer service and prepared to return the shipment. Macy's told me to keep it. But, I have no use for two extra dress shirts. So, I returned them anyway. It seemed like the right thing to do.
