This arrived at work. It was sent from New Jersey.
Josias Campusano-Polanco? Doesn’t work at my school.
105 Clark St? 105 is the street number of my building, but we’re not located on Clark Street.
Roselle, NJ 07203-2504? None of those come close to matching the city, state and zip. (the 7, 2, & 0 match in that digit order, but nothing else)
So this letter traveled from New Jersey to my work in Portland, Oregon just because our street address is 105. Weird. I was so amused I wrote the recipient a note on the back of the envelope before sending it on its way.

How odd! If that letter could talk!!!!
I always assume these things happen because one piece of mail got stuck to another, or a piece fell into the wrong bin or something. When I worked at Mr. Parcel, we once had a package arrive in Honduras via Turkey (don't forget it left from Dallas)! It took like 4 or 5 months. I still couldn't believe it ever arrived. International shipping via postal service is a total crap shoot.
