ROCKY POINT, NC (WWAY) — After waiting nearly a month to get a package that had been misaddressed, a Rocky Point man finally got his mail today, one day after WWAY looked into the issue.

Wes Linton says the package was hand delivered at about 2:30 p.m. today by a US Postal Service representative from Fayetteville.

“I believe it was the postmaster in person!” Linton wrote in an e-mail to WWAY, “who was very polite, cordial and apologetic for the way it was handled.”

Linton said the package was being passed through USPS mail centers on the automated system, and attempts to correct the address routing had been incomplete.

“Thank you for all of the effort extended on your part, the interview by Sarah (Murphy) and the WWAY staff,” Linton wrote. “It is probable the package would still be following (Where’s) Waldo without your efforts.”

    From what I read earlier, this wasn’t a matter of mixing up the town names. Apparently what happened was that the people who mailed the package put an extra digit on the zip code. The post office arbitrarily decided which number to take off. You would think they would use their own website to look up the proper zip code for the town on the package. It’s definitely not rocket science.

    I have had the same experience- people are too quick to assume the town rocky point is rocky mount and off goes the package to parts unknown-

    What kind of sandwich? What were your toppings? Was it good? Did you get heartburn? Will you have another one in the future or are you done with sandwiches?

  • Guest2020 says:

    Did you buy the sandwich or make it yourself? What kind of bread did you use? Did you cut off the crusts?
