Today, my dad sent me $200 by mail, only to mail it to the wrong person. So now some random person is getting $200 from my dad. FML

Your dad doesn't know your address? Your dad doesn't have checks? Your dad thinks sending cash through the mail is a good idea? So many questions...

This is like a raffle. I hope he sent it to me! :)

How is it a YDI if his dad sent it to the wrong person?

Technology is now among us OP. What you're doing just doesn't make cents. FYL

But it does lose them dollars. 200 of them, to be exact.

Unfortunate situation OP. On the bright side, it's somebody else's lucky day!

I'm sorry, OP. Was it a check or did it have a return address? Maybe the person who gets it will send it back or make sure your father gets it back. Or hopefully, your father will realize his mistake and resend it to you. Best of luck to you, OP! Let us know!

this is why the post office asks you not to mail cash... this exact kinda thing

It could go two ways: the person mails it back to the return address, or they feel they need it so much they keep it. They could be a starving family and that random $200 could put food on the table for a few weeks. Still, fyl, you need that $200 too damnit!

Or the person could keep it just cuz of something they want. I mean, I'd honestly keep most of the money if I had gotten it

Or it could be someone who needs $200 more to start research for cancer treatments.

I am really hoping he was thoughtful enough to not send cash.
