Do You Get Packages Delivered Like This Too?

I have at least one time.

I am usually left wondering WHERE some of my packages are. Because they say they have been delivered.

Several options....the front entry of the front building...which is down three floors and 200 yards or more distant. Sometimes they are just left on the windowsill outside that entrance, so that anyone in the parking lot can take my stuff. Those are usually Doordash deliveries from Walmart.

Sometimes they leave a photo of where the package was delivered...and I am left guessing WHERE that little section of entry might actually BE. I usually find them lying on a small shelf in my building's entryway....ONE door away from the proper delivery area in front of the mailboxes. THAT is always UPS.....or Walmart...or Amazon.

The nice thing about Amazon, though, is if I give the delivery a thumbs down, they will locate my packages and place them on the floor in front of my apartment door!

I get a lot of packages and so far ( knock on wood ) i have had very few problems. We dont have porch pirates here. It looks like they were trying to hide the box 🤔

@Soldonmonday I hate when they hide the box. I want the box 😭

@Soldonmonday That's the best part!
A few times. Often the drivers were great about finding strategic [laces to leave my packages without them being directly in sight of the road. But a few have done exactly this, which I enjoy as it is just so ridiculous.

At least they made an effort to hide it from porch pirates 😂

@Zaphod42 we’ve had a lot of these the past year or two. The worst thieves were UPS truck drivers though. One guy had a business going and he would transfer packages to his own vehicle and take them home and open the packages and put the empty boxes in trash bags. Was so smart he dumped the big black bags of trash in an empty field somewhere a few miles away. The police were called and they dug through the bags and found one invoice for something else beside these packages, it had a name & address on it. So they got search warrants and went to the home and found around 1000 packages in his garage.

Love it when a plan comes together @cherokeepatti

My packages are delivered to my front porch, but they don't put the mat on top of them though.

not to the door but at the gate, they blow the horn and I go fetch the packages

@Ingwe Nice that they let you know that way. I’ve had several packages delivered where they didn’t even ring a doorbell or anything. I have a lawn chair and a little table next to the door and they just drop it there and leave.
Hiding so the porch pirates can't find it?

@BizSuitStacy yeah like that will confuse them.
