I did something really ditsy. About a month ago, I ordered some books from Amazon. They were shipped in 2 different shipments. I received one, but the other seemed to be taking forever. Then a neighbor brought me the torn shreds of the missing box along with the torn shreds of the books in it. I think a kid saw the book sitting on my porch, stole it, was disappointed that there was only some books inside and destroyed it.
Now this package only put me out a little money, but I do on occasion order some expensive stuff. I can't receive personal packages at work (HR policy), but there is a post office about 1/4 mile away from where I work.
I rent a PO box at the post office, and do another order. I wait, and wait, and wait. I check my status on Amazon, and it shows delivered last Saturday. So I talk to the clerk at the PO, and she points out that on my address that I was using has the wrong city. Although I work in Town A, the PO just down the road is Town B. My stuff was delivered to a PO in Town B. That PO is about 5 miles away. And my PO box number is rented by someone else, and therefore my books have been returned to Amazon.
Despite the fact that my box rental agreement says Town B, and the sign at the PO itself says Town B. What a ditsy thing to do.
(PS - Amazon has been so nice about it. They immediately credited my account, and gave me free shipping on the reorder although I told them it was my fault)
