One letter’s journey to the wrong side of the country.

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.

  1. 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.
