so i'm getting ready to send out a package and i'm looking at the label and since i'm using paypal for this one, i'm entering their name into the form. the dilemma is in the person's address says "their name" c/o "their name".  they have used the exact same name twice. every other time i've seen a c/o used it's with a different name. 

the question is, should since it's the exact same name, do i have to use the c/o? do you think it was a mistake? or just go ahead and do it because that's what's on the person's label? (which is probably what i'll just do..i just thought it looked funny and wanted to ask)

This happens when folks fill out the the membership form wrong when signing up.  The line is there and I think folks just try to fill everything.  Seen it several times.

Deborah, I recently printed a similar label.  Ignore the repetition, it is not necessary.  Postal equipment/employees read addresses from the bottom up.  Therefore, the package will be delivered before the top line of redundant information is read.

My browser filled this line in with my name automatically when I first signed up, and I didn't notice it for a while. That may have happened to others, as well.

Ah.  Auto fill.  That explains why I see it so often.
