Parcels From Paris

  • Um, yes! Receiving things in the mail after forgetting you've ordered them is the best kind of feeling. It's like a present to your own self! 🙂

    I am sure you wouldn't have been adducted in Paris, but you can never be too careful, I guess!

    Naturally Jes

  • LOL sounds like something that would happen to me! I have never watched Taken, I think my paranoia levels are quite high as they are.

  • haha couldn't stop laughing! Well, in the end you got your package so I guess it all worked out all right 🙂 xx

  • Now that was funny. To be honest, I would probably be feeling the same way you did. I probably would have went downstairs anyway(just because), but I can understand where you are coming from.

  • It absolutely is…. sometimes not paying for express delivery is a blessing in disguise. The longer it takes the better the surprise when it does arrive!!!

  • Ease yourself into it by watching the Family Guy version first then….!!

  • No complaints here Rita… I have my Vegemite and my life. Everything is good in the world 🙂

  • Brave, brave man. I wish I wasn't such a paranoid freak but better safe than sorry.

  • Oh gosh I had experiences like this when I lived in Paris too! I lived with the family I worked for (I was an au pair) and they missed out on so many packages because I would ignore the intercom or misunderstand what was going on.
    Also, I can totally relate to Taken flashbacks during my initial weeks there!

  • Hahahahahaha I am so thrilled it happened to others as well. I get scared by my door ringing at home, let alone when I can't understand what someone is saying at my door! Wish I was an au pair during my time there. Did you love it?

  • hahah this is such a darling story! I'm glad your vegemite finally made it's way to you 🙂
    I don't blame you for not opening the door though, how scary would that be!

  • Vegemite is so expensive…. I'm quietly very happy it got to me eventually haha. Opening the door to a stranger is just as scary as running up stairs once you have turned all the downstairs light out.

  • Love your blog!

  • Omg hahaha that’s hilarious. My (now ex) boyfriend made me watch Taken with him when I found out that I was moving to Paris to make sure that I would be careful ahahaha. xx
