It's actually pretty trivial in this day and age to have an email sent automatically the moment the UPS tracking system marks a package as delivered.Yeah, make calls on 16 million packages delivered in a day outside of the holiday season. that's a productive option.
That was kinda my point. Expecting a phone call from a person is a bit stupid. I think he was referring to YEARS ago when the individual package centers were manned for phone calls before amazon blew up the shipping market and before people ordered EVERYTHING online. They can do text/email alerts etc no big deal on an automated level because it's tied into the tracking system.It's actually pretty trivial in this day and age to have an email sent automatically the moment the UPS tracking system marks a package as delivered.
I receive hardware from UPS at work, and I often show up at the lobby to pick it up before the missus there even finished informing everyone who received a package because the UPS email system is so much faster.
They would need a warrant for it and they're not likely to get one without some sort of video evidence backing it up and even then they probably wouldn't bother.Just claim they stole it from the porch, the cops come a-knocking and find the opened packages with lurkindirks name on them in their house.
Good thing here anything I didn't sign for did not get delivered to me, so if porch deliveries get stolen, I just don't pay for them. Or even better, the delivery driver doesn't follow protocol (ie does an unsigned porch delivery), I just get it for free.
I was waiting on parts via UPS next day air I needed for a job and paid and arm and a leg to have expedited. When they never showed up tracking said attempted delivery, which was bullshit. I called UPS, the driver claimed they tried to deliver but our business was closed for the day (1:30pm). I went to UPS 7AM next morning to get the parcel, a dozen people were screaming bloody murder their shit didnt get delivered and excuse was same as mine. That driver apparently fucked off the whole day and thought nobody would notice. She got fired.I've been getting those for the last two months on every delivery. I'm wondering what the liability on that ends up being when it says "handed off directly" and you claim you never got it.
In fact, just this week I panicked a bit. Was getting a new Roku stick and it said handed off. There was nothing outside. Turns out they somehow fit it in the mailbox.
Feel like I'd rather be robbed than set foot into a Whole Foods.I haven't used it, but a Whole Foods nearby has Amazon lockers. If you order shit online and request they send it to the locker, you can just pick up the package there if you're worried about getting deliveries at home.
I have good flexibility for work at home, so usually I'll just WAH if I know I've got something arriving that wont fit in the USPS lockers at my apartment or if UPS/FedEx are delivering it, since they can't use those lockers and just dump it outside your door.
Last I knew that was also an option on MyChoice, though it may have been removed. Also you'd be surprised at how many people ignore their phonecalls when requested. When I worked there, I had to call 2-3 times in a row because they ignored the first try/tries intentionally thinking it was spam. eventually they'd answer and my suspicions were correct.You can easily have a phone call by a bot these days.
the TJ by me, all the food is fucking stale. no idea why, maybe its the lack of glutin, but there is no point shopping there if my food is shit before i even get it out of the store.Edgy!
TBH I mostly get harder to find yogurts or Kefirs there and their frozen roasted marinated veggie pizza is awesome. Or fresh veggies.
90% of my grocery shopping is otherwise done at Trader Joe’s. If you hate Trader Joe’s too, you’re a communist.
