Man Orders Kindle, Man Receives Human Tumour Instead

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Thank you for making our Monday, FedEx. The company has confirmed that it accidentally mixed up orders for a Kindle and a tumour sample, leaving a Bristolian both extremely confused and without any bedtime stories. James Potten, a 37-year-old environmental consultant, posted his rather unusual complaint Twitter on the weekend, and it's a cracker.


The tissue sample was meant to have been sent to London’s Royal Free Hospital, and the mix-up fortunately hasn’t ruined the sample. It’s now been sent to the correct address, but poor James is still without a Kindle. However, he’s been given a hell of a story to make up for the delay. [Standard]
