Would you think this was weird or nice?

I came home this morning to find a parcel on my front step, addressed to the right address but to someone's name I don't know. It says on the parcel it contains a dress, and it's from Ireland (I'm in Australia). I thought maybe our neighbours might know who it belonged to, but none had a clue (although I did get to know my next door neighbour which was nice!)
Anyway, I looked up this person's name on fb as it was quite unusual and from what I can ascertain she lives in the same city but different suburb in a street with the same name. I've sent her a msg to say I think I have her parcel. Would you think that was weird or nice?
I just thought if the situation was reversed, I'd be chuffed instead of going through the hassle of reordering something from overseas, especially in case it might have been for a special occasion or something. Would you think it was a bit stalkery?

Not weird at all. Well done for making the effort smile

What liberal said.

It was nice of you and not stalkery.

However, since you're not friends on FB won't the message automatically go to the 'other' inbox that no one ever checks?

Thanks. Yes, I thought of that so I sent a friend request too...hopefully that's not too weird but I thought if she doesn't see the msg in her 'others' folder, she might at least ask who I am?

<update>
Well that was quick! She's just messaged me back and thanked me very much, said it was really kind and can she pick it up off me tomorrow smile

Id say that earns you a daffodil for using Facebook in a great way!

You have done a lovely thing

I think that's completely great and if I were the intended parcel receiver, I would be very grateful!

Why would that be weird?

It's a nice thing to do.

Not weird at all - bloody nice of you to make the effort. Many others wouldn't. I think that is your quota of good deeds for the week all done on a Monday!

It isn't weird at all, OP. It's kind.
