Quick Canada Post WTF

Backstory - my mum has sent me a birthday present by way of Canada Post. It's been about a week (she lives in Ontario, and I in BC), and I've heard neither hide nor hair of it. Important note: I live in a condo.

So, I go to check the mailbox on Friday, and find a card saying my package will be available for pick-up on Monday. They also require me to have photo ID with my current address on it (which I do not have yet). I call up the Post office, and they say that my package will not be available until Monday (today) after one p.m., and that I can use a copy of the rental agreement and my passport as ID.

This is where the WTF starts:

My boyfriend and I are sitting on the couch watching TV around 12:38 p.m., when the phone rings. It's the postman, come to deliver a package from Canada Post. Excited, I scurry to the door and wait. Then things got weird. The postman told me "We left you a card recently because you didn't answer the door/phone buzzer, but we're delivering the package now, so you don't have to go over to the post office."

...what? I was at home all day Friday, and they never once buzzed/knocked. I have noticed that people have been having trouble with the mail (one person got something for someone with the same condo number but a COMPLETELY different address - one about a kilometre away), so I've just chalked it up to that. Still weird, though!
