Random bitch

I'm really tired of USPS not delivering my stuff to me because I'm not home. I'm waiting for a book from amazon and I get the little 'first notice' thing on my door because they didn't want to leave it on the porch (and obviously it's packaged in a way that it won't fit in the mailbox). I think I'm smart enough that if I decide to order a diamond necklace or something in the mail, I will have it sent to my parents where they have a private porch and someone is almost always home, or I will have it sent certified mail where someone has to sign. NO ONE HAS TO SIGN FOR A $5 BOOK. This is ridiculous. Plus, I've already TOLD my mail carrier that he can just leave packages on the porch.

Could this be one more example of the USPS's tendancy to suck, and could that have something to do with the USPS's recent quarterly loss of $2.4?

Yeah, I really want to put these morons in charge of health care.

Wouldn't want someone to run on your porch and steal your $5 book would you?

I agree signing for packages is annoying, I doubt there are people who go door to door looking for UPS packages to steal. One thing you could do is leave a note on the door telling them to have your neighbor sign for it, that normally helps.
If anything happened to the book I would just email Amazon that I didn't get it and they would probably resend it ;)

But yeah... there is crime in my city, like every city, but my neighborhood is very safe. The porches are shared between two owners but they are recessed from the street. I don't see a problem with them leaving packages.
