    Here's a story. My center is in a pretty conservative town. Yesterday I got to work a few minutes before start time, as I usually do because I like to talk to the guy that works the customer counter for a few minutes. Well a lady comes in with an open box and says that the person named on the package doesn't live at the address on the box, but that the address is hers. The box was from Amazon.com.

    Well the customer counter guy asks her why she opened it, and she said that sometimes her daughter's boyfriend would have packages shipped to her house under fake names for fun, so she opened it thinking that was probably the case. Clearly, this lady was lying, people don't have things shipped under different names for fun, in my experience. So the customer counter guy takes a look at what's in the box, and I'm standing there watching, and it is a male on male porno DVD. I immediately felt the urge to burst out laughing, but held it in because I didn't want to offend the customer.

    Well the customer counter guy explains that they can't return an open box, and that she'd have to pay to send it back. She then get's really defensive that she wasn't supposed to get the package. About that time I really needed to laugh so I walked into the warehouse out of site.

    I felt bad for the lady because someone in her family had probably ordered that DVD, and my guess was that they didn't want their mom (or wife) to know about it, but she had taken the liberty of opening the box to her disappointment. My guess was someone in that family was going to have a serious talking to that day.

    The package was being shipped 1P, so maybe whoever ordered it figured that the package would probably arrive in the evening so he or she could get the package after they got off work or school, and before this lady had a chance to see it. The driver probably delivered it during the day and this lady was probably the only one home.

    Alternatively, maybe someone knew how uptight this lady was and sent it to her as a joke.

    Well anyway, that's the story.

    It always made for an exciting day when you had a couple of porn packages to deliver-- especially if you knew the people. I could write a book about the little town I delivered to for 20 plus years (pop. 3,000) and the ones that ordered porn. To be honest, I kept everones secret and would just smile at them when meeting them on street. I know some of them would have died of embarassment if they knew I knew. :peaceful:

    I have to echo Rod's sentiments. Small town and you would be surprised at who got the 2nd day air pkgs from NC!

    I used to deliver to a "ladies" shop. They always got excited when I came in
    Unfortunately it was more for contents of the box, than it was for me...

    About 8-9 years ago I was delivering on Valentines Day a box to a woman about 40 years old or so and the company it came from was called something like men's toys.com. She met me 1/2 way as walked toward the house and I greeted her with the line...Hey what's shaken today? I smiled and she turned red as I handed it to her! Never forget the look on her face!

    Delivering those "marital aids" to a customer you have never seen did make the day interesting especially if they were waiting for you at the door. What I disliked was the rewrap job that some package handlers to the customers package.

    Had one of "those" boxes I couldn't deliver one time because of a dog that wouldn't let me out of the truck. The young couple must have been looking for it and anxious to get it because they called in the next day asking why it wasn't delivered and when I would get it to them that day!
    Hope they had fun!

    Well, im not a full time driver, but I had a little time behind the wheel of the brown wagon.

    The route I ran was full of strip joints and adult stores. I delivered about twelve 40 pounds boxes to one adult store one day. Then had a few deliveries at another just down the road.

    Had one for a strip club on day at about 11am. Probably should have waited till later since it was a ground :devil3: Kinda suprising theres people at a strip club at 11am drinking....

    well not really... lol.
