SCOTT, FROM SCOTLAND: NZ Post communications did not respond to a request for a comment. Picture by Paul Rickard

A LETTER with the most bizarre address on the envelope has found its way to the right destination much to the surprise of the recipient.

Tiniroto resident Scott O’Brien could not believe his eyes when he saw this envelope in his letterbox.

On the front of it was written: “Scott, from Scotland ... aged about 60/70?? ... corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 ... also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history ... Good sense of humour ... tells a good tale ... Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.”

The letter was for Scott O’Brien and he could not believe it got to his home.

He has high praise for NZ Post for making sure the mail got to the right owner.

The letter was from the man who delivers the phone books to all the homes in the district, George MacLachlan.

He was keen to catch up with Mr O’Brien again after meeting by chance outside his home while delivering the phone book about five months ago.

“The dog barked at him when he pulled up the drive and I went out to see what it was. We had a good chat for about half an hour and then off he went. The next I heard from him was this letter and it’s amazing it arrived.”

Mr O’Brien hopes he will meet up with him again next year.
