United Parcel Service - Delivery Driver To Be Commended
I do most of my shopping online, mostly from Amazon. Deliveries are frequent and consist mainly of small boxes. The delivery is left at my doorstep without incident. After reviewing some internet videos of deliveries by both UPS and FedEx of big ticket items, theft and deliberate damage have occurred. For this reason I was hesitant to order an expensive home theater system weighing over 70 lbs from Amazon. I finally placed my order and was given a tracking number and delivery date.
As promised the delivery was made on time. The driver could have just dropped the huge box at the front door and left. This is an advertisement saying "steal me." The driver rang the bell to alert me of the delivery. I was home but unable to immediately come to the door. He took the time to hide the box behind some large bushes in front of the house. Just as he was leaving I came to the door. He waved to me and said "I didn't want your package to be stolen." UPS drivers get a lot of complaints. I wanted to acknowledge that this driver was honest and did his job professionally.
