A internet shopping spree went wrong this week when an Austrian woman bought two dresses from a Dutch online shop. A few days later as the couple ate breakfast, the postman brought their package to Linz – and a second package filled with 24,800 ecstasy pills.
The couple, aged 58 and 59, were confused by the additional package which was addressed to them. The woman originally thought the mistaken package was full of decorative stones. However, the man quickly realised it was full of the party drug instead.
Very cutely, the couple assured each other that neither of them had ordered half a million euros of pills to share with their friends. And then? We’re assuming their pupils dilated, they clenched their jaws, and they began to sweat – from stress, obviously.
They then did the responsible thing and contacted the post office. The police were called (stat!) and an investigation revealed the intended recipient was someone in Scotland – who we can assume was very worried at this point wondering where their pills were.
Of course, the Scot was arrested. Dutch police are still trying to find the sender of the package.
