    Customer: "Who is it?"
    Me: "UPS."
    C: "Who?"
    M: "UPS."
    C: "Who?"
    M: "U!P!S!"
    C: "Who?"
    M: "Uuuuuuuu! Peeeeeeeeee! Essssssssss!"
    C: "Who?"
    C: "Who?"
    M: "Look through the freakin' peep hole!"
    C: "Who?"
    M: "Open the freakin' door!"
    C: "Who?"
    M: "You're a freakin' moron!"
    C: "Who?"
    M: "See ya' Monday!"
    C: "Who?"

    If I can hear these idiots through the door, why can't they hear me? They are not all deaf. Not a chance. They are just too young and when they eventually do come to the door, they hear me just fine. They also have no trouble hearing the video games they are playing when I'm knocking and they are sitting on their couch.

    Knock Knock
    Me: UPS
    Customer: Who is it?
    Me: UPS
    Customer: Just a minute
    Me OK
    Customer: Hang on
    Me: Take your time mam.
    Customer: Help!
    Me: Mam?
    Customer: Help me peanut!
    Me: UPS!
    Customer: Help me peanut!

    I try the door knob, its unlocked. I slowly open the door
    Me: Hello, UPS!
    Customer: Help me, Ive fallen and I cant get up

    I pear into the apartment and see an older woman laying in the floor. She had fallen out of her chair when she attempted to get up and come to the door. At first she refused my help to get her back up and in her recliner. I offered to call paramedics or apartment maintenance but she still refused. After about 5 minutes of watching her struggle and fail to get up she allowed me to help her up and get her parked back in the chair. She was quite winded and I didnt want to leave incase she was having trouble breathing so I hung around for another 5. She got calmed down and was breathing fine again. Sat the package on the coffee table got her to scratch the board as she appologized over and over. You never know what your gonna get when you knock on a door. A simple stop turned into a 15 minute ordeal for me. Oh and if your wondering, Peanut was a Chihuahua.

    soberups Pees in the brown Koolaid

    I had a stop once where a rather large elderly woman fell down and asked for my help getting up. The problem was that, between her size and the position she was laying at in a narrow walkway, the only way I could get her lifted up was from behind with my hands going under her arms and across the front of her chest. I did my best to position my hands so as not to touch her in an inappropriate manner, but it was still very awkward and embarassing for both of us. She thanked me for the help, signed for her package, and I got the heck out of there.

    I hate having to play the "who" game. I only repeat myself 3 times after the initial "it's UPS" and I leave a note and leave. Hopefully they read better than they hear.

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    One time delivering to an apartment, I knock on the door and as I am looking down at the package to start the service cross, a lady opens the door and as I look up she jumps back screams and slams the door in my face. I'm like what the hell, knock again, no answer so I sheet the package refused and went on my merry way
