    One of the drivers I load for says that recipients ask him all the time to assemble the thing they ordered and where to put it in their house (mostly furniture). People don't actually do this; they know you're just delivering the package right?

    I often joke that "assembly is not included" when I deliver something that needs to be put together.

    No, we don't assemble anything ----we put the package wherever (within reason) they want it and go on our way.

    9 times out of 10. We pick it back up after a couple days. Especially exercise equipment. Then I jokingly say. Looks like I'm the only one who worked out with this thing

    I actually had a husband order me to leave a Nordic trac next to the curb! He said let her (his wife) drag in in the house - she needs the exercise more than you.

    Back years ago we use to deliver new phones and pick up the old ones when people called the phone company for service. I bet I installed five hundred of them over the years. I could do it in about 45 seconds.

    They were a pain in the rear. Chances were about 100% you would be dealing with some old hag who thought her poop didn't stink.
