problems with UPS

Scared me good today when after I checked my UPS tracking from work and showing my package delivered from Cabela's I got homr to find nothing by the door like it said. I put a call in to try and find out what happened but while I was waiting took a walk and found it myself on a neighbors porch about a hundred yards away. Our houses are scattered but clearly marked, the driveways are winding and confusing but just to leave it at the wrong house upset me quite a bit as a new Zeiss rangefinder was inside and would have been a nice prize for a dishonest recipient.

Anyway it all turned out well but need to make sure something like this does not happen again as it is not the first time and I was unable to retrieve the package when it happened before.

I've had that before, but

I've had that before, but usually just with a similar address.  2286 and 2236 can be mistaken easily, I guess.

Glad it worked out for you though.

whew!

Whew! Glad to hear that it all worked out and glad that your neighbor didn't mind you getting your package back!

Now tell us about how the range finder works!

In all my years using UPS I

In all my years using UPS I have only had one problem myself.  The company that I worked for sent me a item and used my PO box.  UPS called me and I told them the right address but they ended up sending it back to the sender.  The only other time was when I got one of my neighbors packages.  I just picked it up and took it to him. 

One strange thing that did happen one year was when I got a package from Cheaper Than Dirt.  The package address had my name and address on it but I hadn't ordered anything from them.  When I opened it up there was a bunch of real nice hunting and shooting gear inside.  Then I saw a packing slip on the inside.  It was for a person that lived in my same town but with a totally different name.  It was a good thing that he had a listing in the phone book or else I would of just kept the gift from them.
