    Big arse dogs deter deliveries too. I'm surprised at how many of our drivers are scared of dogs.

    This is where access points serves a purpose. In my hood, alarms are a nuisance, and the $50 device would be taken too.

    Who's to say the driver will leave the package on the device? Or even see it?

    Some local thieves got caught yesterday. Observant neighbor saves the day.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    This reminds me of when my kids were really young and both their Mom and I wanted to take them out trick or treating for Halloween. We set an "honesty bowl" filled with candy on our front porch with a sign that said "Please take just one".

    They took all of the candy, the sign and the bowl.

    I've been bit a lot. I don't mess with dogs anymore. If it's out and looking the least bit aggressive I don't exit the truck

    Is a Porch Pirate like a Butt Pirate? I'm not really sure what either of those two are, but it don't sound too nice!
