When life unexpectedly delivers Amazon packages, you share them with everyone you meet.
That’s what one Virginia woman did.
Cindy Smith was quite surprised when an unordered package arrived at her doorstep, but her bewilderment only grew with each subsequent package she received.
In no time, she received a dozen pairs of binoculars, 800 tubes of glue, and 1,000 headlamps.
The packages were addressed to Lixiao Zhang, but the shipping address was Cindy’s.
Initially, she thought it might be a brushing scheme, where sellers create fake sales to inflate 5-star ratings.
However, after Amazon investigated, it turned out to be a company trying to get rid of excess products, and this was the most cost-effective solution.
As an environmental science teacher and ecologist, she didn’t want these products to go to waste. So, she decided to do what she could by giving them away.
“Many people told me I was weird,” Cindy told WUSA-TV. “I was driving around with headlamps and glue in the car. I gave them to everyone I met.”
Fortunately, the seller’s store was eventually shut down on Amazon, so Cindy won’t have to distribute these products for long.
Nevertheless, it’s heartwarming that she was able to help places like her city’s dog shelter while navigating a rather perplexing situation!
