'Round this way, UPS just leaves the package and runs. Even if the package is marked that it must be signed for. Doesn't make a difference. Sometimes they even hide it in the backyard or on my side deck -- but leave the really big, obvious packages on the front porch for all to see (and walk off with if nobody is home). They never ring the bell or knock (I have been home and seen the truck pull up but never hear them, then the truck leaves and I have to walk all over the yard to see if I can find what they left) I *HATE* UPS :mad:
DSL and FedEx are much better -- at least they let you know they've been there. Ad USPS will leave a form in the front door or the mailbox to say that they tried to deliver something.
I'd go with anyone but UPS...
Galinda didn't often stop to consider whether she believed in what she said or not; the whole point of conversation was flow. -- Gregory Maguire: Wicked
The only time a cold, blank stare is a correct response is when a stranger invites you to get better acquainted with his deity or the contents of his trousers.
