    He dropped off 2 packages, said if I was not home he was not going to just leave the one as it was in origional packing, not covered with outside package material or brown box, so was easy to tell what it was if someone wanted to steal it.
    I'm impressed. Not everyone thinks about things like that.

    My UPS driver brings my packages into the house for me. Last week when I wasn't home, a larger box was placed on the railing in a secure way so I wouldn't have to lift it. Sounds like we both have good ones.

    When items are large and heavy they will bring it inside and ask where I want it, very nice.
    This item was light, but you could tell by looking on the outside of the box what it was, electronic item.

    Our UPS driver leaves on the enclosed back porch our packages when we are not home, they are protected from the weather and out of site.

    That's great! :thumbup:
    Its nice when people care about their jobs - that seems to be a pleasant side effect of the present economy. There are some people that appreciate their jobs a little more and seem to be more concerned about good customer service. After all, we do have choices on who we do business with! :thumbup:

    My UPS guy leaves my packages at the back door. The back yard is fenced in so no one can see anything. Great Guy.

    My UPS man is very nice, too. He just drops and runs, too. They are very rushed!

    our UPS guy also delivers to my office. He will bring it to the office if the weather is bad- he knows hubby doesn't get to plow the drive until late at night.

    I had 7 toy poodles. Several years ago my husband & I had unloaded a few things from our pick-up truck. My husband forgot to close the gate. One of my dogs snuck off. Our UPS driver stopped at our house, rang the bell & asked if I was missing a dog. I took a quick count & yep I was. He told me where he'd seen her. If he hadn't stopped & let us know she would be dead. Just as we found her, She ran across the main street right in front of a car. I called her just as she was going to cross back over. She was scared/upset & confused. Thankfully she turned & ran to me. I thaked him mnay times for saving my dog. I thought of calling UPS & telling them he should be put up for employee of the month, but was afraid he'd get in trouble, as I didn't have a pacakge to deliver that day. Our UPS driver also brings packages inside. He really loves me when I order 150 pounds of in shell nuts for my parrots!

    I came home one day to find a note on the door that said"package in FORD truck" it made me laugh because at my house there are always at least 5 FORD trucks :shock: :roll:
    I bet after he wrote it and took a look around thought "I guess they will be playing Hide-and-Seek" :roll: :lol: :shock: :mrgreen:

    I live rural, and have two dogs. Our driver leaves parcels in our garage, and always give the dogs a treat when he comes. They love him! So do I!

    we had a UPS man put our package in the rear of the pick-up, when we were away in the car. He left a note on the door to check pick-up. It was there in such a way, no one saw it from the street. neat huh!

    It might be a matter of time since I understand that they have a rather tight schedule and with every delivery scanned into their computer, their route is very "trackable".

    While working, if I had to "sign" for an item I'd include a silly face..then it dawned on me....someone the the middle of the country would definitely know who signed for it!

    :lol:
