I recently orderd a package from Amazon.com and having opted for free delivery expected service from the U.S. postal service who at the end of the day express at least a degree of competence.
Instead I get U.P.S. Now I live in a town house in a (recently) bad neighborhood and my front door is in plain sight of about seven neighbors.
My backyard is private, obvious, and easily accessable.
My deliverman rang my doorbell three times in quick succesion and then left the package at my doorstep, in the three minute interim I before I could answer the door I teenager had ran off with the package (The UPS van's symbol was still visible from my location.) There is little more embarrasing than having to threaten children because of an adults obvious neglect, yet here I was scolding someone else's child to obtain a package that had my name on it within eyesight of a deliveryman who couldn't be bothered to care, A package that could have easily been placed in my backyard or in my postal box. At the end of the day U.P.S is offering a service that can easily be replaced anmd should not be trusted
