Re: [Rant] UPS delivery will not ring the doorbell

I had an unexpected UPS delivery yesterday. The guy didn't even bother to turn into my driveway. He left his truck parked on my somewhat-busy two lane road...ran 160 ft thru my front yard...left the package on the stoop...banged twice on the front door and before I could get there he was running back to his truck.

Last Friday FedEx Ground delivered a new microwave oven 46 hours after I ordered it. I was expecting it and the garage door was open. The driver carried it into the garage and left it there. Had I not heard him slam his door when he got into the truck to leave, I wouldn't have known he was there.

For us, UPS always delivered packages around the back of the garage and put them inside the enclosed porch/patio for us (Our 3-4 car wide driveway went up to the garage, and part of it went past it and wrapped around the back of the house which was on a corner lot). Only thing we could ever figure was there was a note associated with the house from the previous owners (since it was all UPS deliveries, not just the regular driver).

One day caught the FedEx guy and asked, said he'd look and see, followed us around and said it wouldn't be a problem. Either he forgot, or put a note in incorrectly as the next Delivery from them we found after backing out of the garage and crushing the package.

As far as I know. UPS drivers won't pull into a homeowners driveway. Especially one where they have to back out of, the trucks have sensors on them that can tell how many times the truck was backed up. The less the better. Everything else sounds normal if its a package they can leave. Its all about time every minute adds up.

I've had multiple UPS deliveries over the years. This was the only time I can think of that the driver did not BACK down my driveway and then drop off the package.
