    Reading suspicious device brought me back to the days working at that delivery company. I would encounter them all the time, in a plain brown wrapper. Most often they were what is AKA as a girls best friend that turned into full activation mode and the clerk would have to turn them off and reseal the package.

      I’ve seen these mugs before. They travel in herds and will stamped if they’re startled. When at rest, they look very suspicious and you have to wonder because they never reply if you speak to them.
