Surprises within the mail are at all times fun — except when it’s a vial of what appears to be human blood.
Jen Begakis claimed that she ordered a leather chair from Amazon, but then found an unsettling addition to the package when she took it out of the box.
“If I told you the leather chair I ordered from Amazon was packaged with a blood collection tube that’s…full, would you think me?” she claimed in a post to Twitter.
“Because I’m lost for – – – words.”
“I’m as terrified as I’m confused,” the Ph.D. candidate wrote, adding a 24-second video of the box and vial of blood to the Tweet.
“I’m so profoundly unprepared [for] the sort of chaos,” she quipped in reply to comments on the post.
Begakis later updated followers on her blood-saga, alleging that she initially heard from Amazon but reportedly hasn’t heard from them again.
The Post has reached out to Amazon and Begakis for comment.
Since initially tweeting the video, Begakis’ tweet has been retweeted greater than 3,500 times and topped 48,800 likes.
Within the video posted online, Begakis movies the cardboard box on the ground, showing bubble-wrapped chair pieces on the ground before displaying the one vial within the box, which appears to, indeed, be filled with blood.
“Amazon emailed me last night and said it’s ‘expedited to top priority’ but I haven’t heard anything since. so… the vile is in the identical spot from last night,” she wrote in response to a different commenter.
“I just closed the box and let it have some peace an quiet,” she said of the apparently still-untouched bonus package.
