    Heck, even if the USPS delivers to the door - they don't ring the doorbell. I saw this on my route last week.usps.jpg

    USPS isn't a full service operation like ups. You get what you pay for.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I always see USPS and FedEx boxes at houses that I know the people are home all day.

    I really tire of scaring people, or when a sig is need, going through the whole "home defense" routine. "Hey! Who's there!" UPS. "WHO?!" Ups. WHOOO!?!?! The guys in Brown, we deliver stuff! "Oh". Then they open the door. Or the ghetto apartments I have. I swear they see a white guy dressed in brown through the peephole, and assume I'm a county sherrif serving warrants.

    This!!

    And then I stack it all up and give a rap on the door and a ring of the bell. No matter what time of day.

    When I was a helper I had hundreds of drops where there were usps AND fedex boxes at the door. Ring the bell, hand them their box, and then pick up their other boxes and hand those over too. That's full service.

    Probably the only job I've ever had where people thanked me for just doing what I'm payed for.
     
  8. Just another way for big brown to make money and screw us out of fulltime jobs!!!! IMAGINE THAT

    Four exclamation points? Also, caps lock is a privilege not a right.
    Not to mention I have no idea how this comment is even applicable to the thread.

    I never ring the doorbell. My new favorite thing to do is to take the doormat off of the hidden ups box and hide mine under it.

    My mail lady rings my doorbell and brings all the rest down the driveway too. Saves me the trip up a 300 yard hike

    I've been guilty of taking the newspaper to the door - especially since I almost ran over it.

    On my old route I would grab the paper when ever I could if I had a free hand. You're actually doing the customer a huge favor as a paper laying in the driveway usually signifies that no one is home. Especially if I see a couple of them laying there then they must be on vacation. I would hate to see someone's house get robbed because of a slight oversight in preparedness.

    I ring all doorbells and place the package where the door opens. I am the minority in my building.

    One thing I find odd is 90% of all doorbells are on the opposite side of where they open. Is there a reason for this or just coincidence?

    In the tracking number, the two digit service level, what does w1 mean? A friend has a package that she was supposed to get already. I am thinking sure post maybe?
