Last Call- Special Delivery Edition

If you’re like me, you order a lot of parts online, and then eagerly await their delivery – usually by someone in brown shorts. I’m lucky enough to have a house with a well-hidden front door where packages can be left with some semblance of peace of mind against later theft. Not everyone is so lucky, and some times you just have to be home to receive that package. This humorous instructional sheet indicates that even that might not always work in your favor.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Everything gets shipped to my workplace. Residential delivery is too dicey. I worked as a Santa’s Helper for The Big Brown One one year and my driver explained that their competitor had one class of driver (permanent employee with benefits) for business and premium delivery, and a whole ‘nother class (contractor, basically self employed, competing for routes and leasing a truck, like a taxi driver but with less accountability) for the low-end and residential stuff.
    I still give those nutballs a wide berth (their trucks have a different paint scheme) when I see them on the road, and the few that I have met at my front door have been crazier than my crackhead neighbors.
    The US Postal Service has this strange idea that if they provide less service on fewer days, all their problems will go away. Your box is one of those problems.

    Advantage countryside: My postman knows me. He signs my packages and delivers them no matter what, sometimes even when I’m at the shop or kindergarten (“Saw your car outside”). First time I experience a well-working postal service.

    Fourtunately, my UPS guy and I are on a first name basis; he does the polar opposite of all the “instructions” listed. On the other hand however, FedEx deliveries are a carbon copy!! There have been times where I honestly think he has a transporter beam and stealth technology on his truck, LOL!! 🙂

    @Gerardo Solis, my local newspaper just did what you did on Hooniverse, sort of. Had to smile a bit when I saw that:

    The USPS, FedEx and UPS have been great to me.
    Both commercial and home service are doing fine for all three.
    I do go out of my way to make things easy for the drivers (they do a lot more than drive)
    but like posting on Hooniverse it is worth the effort.
    Be nice, it increases horsepower and karma.

    once, UPS left an Amazon box on my porch, and i didn’t find it when i got home.
    i called Amazon and registered that i didn’t receive it. i got a call from UPS saying that the driver said he left it on the porch, under the table. i went out to the porch to look, when suddenly a UPS truck pulled up. “Hey!” the driver yelled to me from the open door, “I left it right there! Under that! Yeah, right there!”
    so i was like “okay,” to the guy on the other end of the phone, “the driver’s also telling me that he left it right here.” and the guy on the phone didn’t even seem surprised that i was talking to the driver. i have to wonder if the driver and the CS rep arranged to be in the same ‘hood at the same time, or if it was just a weird coincidence.
    anyway, Amazon sent me another box with the same cheap shit in it, so everything turned out fine.
