          The only time I have had trouble with later than scheduled delivery is around the holidays, when they are really jammed up. We get good service from both, and sometimes they will leave things at the back door if nobody is home and its a larger package that will be noticeable. They almost always ring the bell. Its usually in good condition too. Again, that seems to change around the holidays when they are so swamped.

            Amazon Delivery takes photos of the delivery location and texts them to you. I can't remember having a problem with USPS. I'm sure I have but it's been so long I can't remember.

              That's true. I've received several pictures of my Amazon package at someone else's door.

                UPS has an unfair advantage.

                  I wish Amazon sent me that kind of picture instead of someone else's door.

                      She's a grandma by now.

                      I posted her here back in 2018

                        I've spent time in over 20 USPS facilities across the country this year alone and I can say I have no problem shipping everything via USPS. I've also been in FedEx and UPS facilities ... much, much different. In terms of product handling, you won't find better systems then those used in Postal distribution centers and air hubs.

                        Once it gets on to a vehicle though, it's strictly the delivery person's game, regardless of company.

                          Ancient Egypt conditioned their women to perceive fat men as the attractive ideal. Manboobs were a sign of wealth and success. If a UPS driver like that Colombian blonde shows up at your door push your beer belly out with pride. She might dig it. If you got it, flaunt it.

                                I bet it was at least 10 years ago when we first saw PE boxes delivered by Sandy. Yep, I remembered her name.
