There's nothing quite like the feeling of confused surprise when something you ordered in the midst of a drunk eBay rampage arrives on your doorstep. When the ill-advised purchase arrives on your stoop some days later, you spare a fond thought for drunk, irresponsible you from the past, organising such an unexpected gift for future, sober you. Unsuspecting residents all over the world have been experiencing a similar feeling of late, as reports have surfaced claiming Amazon users are being sent items they have no recollection of ordering.
