I bought a part online. I'm in a rural area - long driveways, lots of homes (mine included) can't see the road from the house.
UPS "delivered" my package by tying it to a trash can out at the road! Sheer luck that I even went down the driveway to see it before it got grabbed by bored kids walking by.
Oh, and in case you're wondering - the driveway is in good shape, no gate, dogs securely fenced nowhere even near the driveway, absolutely no obstacles whatsoever... And I telecommute full time, so I'm always home during delivery hours 'cause I'm working.
