There are a lot of fantastic ideas coming into the brain when you are not sitting in front of your computer (maybe when dreaming..lol) and sooner you decide to write those in a form of article/blog post, ideas tend to go away like they never existed. I have been suffering this problem since quite long :).
“Dig mountain …find rat ” is my friend’s way of translating a Urdu saying “khoda pahar nikla choha” …lolz. Anyhow last night I had a dream to write something which will be beneficial to readers in some way…..I couldn’t remember what I was up to but …oh yeah . Couple of days ago I received an e-mail in my inbox saying something like this:
“From: DHL Express Services (email@example.com)
Sent: Tuesday, November 02, 2010 8:36:06 PM
Subject: Track your parcel NR42874
Your parcel has arrived at the post office on October 04
Our Driver was unable to deliver the parcel to your address.
To receive a parcel you must go to the nearest DHL office and show your mailing label.
You need to print mailing label, and show it in DHL office to receive the parcel.
Thank you for your attention.
I was very surprised and shocked at the same time. Surprised..? why, because I was about to receive a parcel which I never excepted and Shocked….because it said my address was not reachable to deliver the package. I did a deep search inside my little brain to find out any clue about that mysterious package but couldn’t got any lead. Birthday gift….”No”, engagement present…..”No way”…. a present from GF….. maybe if she…then what?
When I tried to track the parcel on DHL’s homepage, I got nothing :(. To that point I was desperate at least to know about it. When I spoke with customer service, she said “…don’t try to open the attached file in your email….it’s a virus.”
Wow! lucky enough I didn’t open that attached receipt and un-lucky enough I didn’t receive what I started to dream about.
