The Brotherhood of the Traveling Pants

Not really a “Maine” story but a story nevertheless:

My spouse ordered some sort of electronic part for his ham radio setup via eBay.  A few days later, the package arrived.

The item was well padded – not only with bubble wrap and newspaper, but with two new pairs of men’s pants, with the tags still attached!

It was sort of creepy, actually.

My husband wrote the seller:  “Thanks for the electronics, which arrived and are working 100%.  But what am I supposed to do with the pants?  They don’t even fit lol.”

The seller replied, “Yeah, funny thing about that.  Last week I ordered an item on eBay and it came packed and padded with some guy’s pants!  They didn’t fit me either.  Pass ’em on!”
