    Obviously the best stories must stand out in your minds, whether you've just delivered your 1000th package or 1000000th package....

    I love reading other drivers' stories.

    The ones who think the driver is coming inside to disconnect all the dish network stuff so it can be returned.

    The Customers who try to hand you a Post Office package.
    They argue it says UPS, you point out it says USPS, and they ask "Are you SURE it is not UPS?"

    Old women ordered a 60 inch TV then refused it when I wouldn't come inside to put it on the wall.

    O wait, you said funny, not favorite, my bad sorry...............how about when the customer writes a hand written letter to you and tapes it on the door demanding you dr there signature required pkg, I find that quite humorous.

    I just write "NO" in big block letters across their note and then leave another.

    Not a driver, but had a customer scream at me over the counter because we RTSed his package after 3 attempts and it sat on the postcard shelf for 7 days. He was out of town, but apparently I should have known that.

    A couple months later I was talking to one of my professors and the jerk walks through the door. He remembered me, and I him. He was very quiet and it was awkward. I laughed the entire walk back to my car.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Judging by the number of competitor packages in my drop boxes I would say they are truly that stupid.

    Be careful doing this.

    The best reply is to do what indecision does----simply place our notice squarely over their letter.
