All seemed perfectly in order when I retrieved the card from my letter box. On the front of the envelope was my name and address. Letter perfect; no mistake.
Turning the envelope over, however, I noticed something strange: a personalised sender's address sticker bearing the name "S & M Murphy" and an address in Shellharbour, NSW. All very well, except that I don't know anybody named S. Murphy, nor anybody named M. Murphy, let alone a couple with the unlikely initials S & M Murphy.
Oh yeah, I also don't know anybody in Shell Harbour. I don't even know where Shell Harbour is!
It gets weirder, though. The Christmas card itself features the following message:
Trev, Mel, Mitch, Cooper + MaxWTF?
Merry Christmas + Best Wishes For 2007
Murph, Mel, Sally + Andrew
So basically one group of people I don't know has somehow mailed me a Christmas card intended for another group of people I don't know. How, I wonder, is this possible?
