Have you ever wondered what kinds of adventures your mail has gone through en route to your mailbox?
Perhaps it seems a bit beat up, or has scuff marks all over it like it got caught in a machine, or the envelope is slightly ripped.
Well, for one postal customer, they got a surprise when they received some mail with a little bit extra on it: blood.
Luckily for them, the Postal Service assumed that they might be a bit freaked out wondering how it got there, so they included a helpful note describing exactly what it was and how it got there.
Twitter user @CenTexAg shared the bizarre note, which quickly went viral.
The note starts:
"Dear Postal Customer,"
"Due to wildly unforeseen circumstances the following letter has inadvertently come into contact with animal blood."
It then describes a wild fight between a hawk and a raven in the back of the delivery truck:
"The carrier reported that while they were in their postal vehicle getting the next set of mail ready to be delivered, a hawk chasing a raven flew into the back of the vehicle. The had a momentary scuffle until they promptly exited the vehicle. Several letters, including yours, we[re] stained during this altercation. We are deeply sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused you."
People were pretty impressed.
Just another typical day for a mail carrier?
One Twitter user shared a similarly hilarious notice on a package indicating that it couldn't be delivered because of a "bear at door".
But this response is the answer that we were all actually waiting for:
