    Sucks if they’re not home and you don’t have the tag to leave.

    Due to some nosy neighbor calling them about somebody lurking through yards in the neighborhood.

    My Favorite was going to pick up a Nordic Track or BowFlex that had been sitting outside since delivery(weeks prior) The box was toast. It has seen rain, sun, and probably snow... "yeah sorry we can't pick that up" the box was falling apart just by looking at it.

    Had a guy who did this. Our center manager pointed this out to him.
    Guy was lucky. center manager only gave him a warning letter but assured him if he did it again he'd be terminated.

    I don't sign without the person's authorization. Say if they're elderly, incapable of using their hands, dog present, on the roof of their house etc... I've yet to just forge a signature for the sake of expeditiously completing a stop. But after reading all the comments and real life scenarios, I'll readjust my work habits starting next week.

    Trucks don't have ears so I don't see how it would be able to hear you anyways.

    I call the center, explain the situation and ask if it is OK if I sign my own name. I have done it 3 or 4 times and every time was told that as long as I was signing my own name that that would be fine.

    Won't do that either.
    It is not OK.
    During your hearing the supervisor will conveniently not recall authorizing you to do it.
    Ask the center manager if he will sign for it.
    See what he says.

    Send a DIAD message in asking if it's OK.
    I bet they don't respond because they are trained not to "put anything on paper".
