Discover sent me somebody else's card

I converted my Discover More Student card to the Discover it recently. Yesterday I opened up the UPS box that it came in (which was properly labeled with my information) and it ended up being somebody else's card (all the paper work had this other guy's name and address on it). It appears to me that the labels got switched. I called Discover and had them issue me a new credit card number for fear of somebody else having been sent my card.

Has anyone ever had this happen before?

OP hopefully if they sent your card to someone else, they are as honest as you were. crazy mistake though. Im sure it happens more than we think.

One more thing, the customer service rep acted like it was no big deal and said she would send me out a replacement card overnight. I told her to please issue me a new card number.

In this case, it was because of the label. If it would have been sent to the address on the paperwork, it would have ended up at the right place. Most cards that I'm aware of don't use labels to ship. They just go to the address that prints out on the paperwork that shows through the clear plastic on the envelopes.
