Receiving someone else’s Amazon package by mistake is not very uncommon, but Amazon went out of control when they sent 64 packages containing the exact same thing to a woman who never ordered any of them.
Olivia Douglass was baffled by this suspiciously generous gesture from Amazon that she decided to share her experience on TikTok.
The now-viral video starts with Olivia questioning: "Does anyone else have a Secret Santa that just keeps sending packages to your house, but to their name?... Anybody else, or is it just me?"
After receiving many packages that she didn’t even order, Olivia decided to contact Amazon customer service for an explanation, only to get the green light from Amazon to keep the packages for herself as the intended owner would probably have raised a claim.
This is understandable when you receive only one or two wrong packages, but the situation went completely out of hand when she kept receiving more and more boxes to her house, ending up with 64 boxes from Amazon, or more accurately, from her “Secret Santa.”

The video has racked up over 4.8 million views, with many people begging Olivia for an unboxing video and others admiring her exceptional self-control. One user commented: “The self control you have to have collected that many packages without opening them. I could never.”
Since Amazon allowed her to keep the boxes, she decided to open them all with her husband in multiple follow-up videos.
The exciting unboxing experience soon turned into her biggest disappointment when she kept pulling out flag, after flag, after flag….

After pulling nothing but flags, Olivia came to the realization that all the 64 boxes contained basically the same thing, which led her to change her bio to read: "I now identify as flag girl."
One user suggested a brilliant way for Olivia to monetize the disappointment. They commented, “Start an Amazon seller account and sell the flags lol.”
Others were just as disappointed as Olivia: “I really wanted it to be super fun or bizarre stuff.” one user wrote, to whom she replied: “same :/.”
Unless the intended owner didn’t show up and explain why they ordered tons of flags in the first place, the reason would forever remain a mystery, but the fun we had watching Olivia pulling out free flags and getting disappointed was totally worth it.
Most of the flags were American flags, Trump flags, and pride flags.

If these are country flags, perhaps donate them to the local veterans organization so they can use them as needed.
Good answer. That is a excellent suggestion.
Well, maybe not that peace flag. Unless they can change the entire flag into something else.
As a combat veteran of two wars, I can tell you that MANY of us would indeed love a peace flag. Nobody values peace more than those of us who fought. Especially in the last three pointless wars.
