    My rant for today is UPS or fedex dropping packages at the door and not even ringing the doorbell

    My UPS guy is really good, but the rest of the delivery guys in my area are awful for tagging and running.

    My ups guy doesn’t care if it says sign for anything and just ditches the box at the door. My neighborhood is pretty decent so its fairly safe but.. Still

    my UPS guy never actually asks for signatures. He just leaves them at the front door, but at least he rings the doorbell before scooting off. Other guys who deliver who need signatures sometimes don’t even knock or bring the package up to the door. They just leave the tag saying I gotta go pick it up sometimes. It’s infuriating when that happens and I was home all along. Those guys are lazy sods and should should be fired.

    Doobie, That’s when you need a camera setup to show that they don’t even attempt to contact. I hate when that happens.
    Even worse is being told one day that the package is going to be delivered the next day only to find out it never even made it on the truck.
    I’m still waiting for my Axial to get here, they now tell me Monday.

    We shared a drive years ago when we owned a duplex. Between us, our tenants, and the neighbors, we had 6 cars to deal with. Everyone did there part and it worked out well. I know most have not had it so well in dealing with this.

    I have a neighbour (actually, one next to me, one across from me) like that. Don’t share a driveway, so snow isn’t an issue, but their un-raked leaves blow onto my lawn for weeks after the last tree drops.

    Wish everyone just pitched in

    We have some of those neighbors that won’t clean the leaves up.
    Actually the don’t do much of any yard work. The one next to me put their house for sale! yippy! A very young couple and have never seen anyone so lazy!
    The other thing that happens here is people have their drives plowed when it snows and they push it all across the street and in my yard.
    The snow isn’t so bad but I always end up cleaning gravel and whatever else they push over here and no one ever offers to help.

    That sucks. We all have a driveway snow clearing service on my street, but its a blower, so my snow ends up on my land, and theirs stays with them

    As for leaves, some rake an bag, some just mulch.
    These two neighbours actually rake, but they just leave the piles in place to be blown apart. Would make less mess to just leave them where they fall

    I have found the young and able people are the worst and lazy.
    The older people keep up with the lawn chores.
    Why would you leave piles of leaves? It would kill the grass also.

    The guy across the road is the useless variety of 50-something divorced guy. The ones next to us are in their late 20s or early 30s – don’t know who is lazier.

    Some are sad sacks, no matter the situation- and need someone else to crack the whip

    That’s not right. Pretty inconsiderate.

    No problem, just wanted to keep this in perspective. I’m a 60’s something divorced guy and I am much lazier then I used to be, but I probably still out work most around here. Not to say that any of them are lazy. You can’t live where I do and be too lazy.

    This head cold that I have is just not letting me get a good nights sleep. Been going on now for just over a week. Can’t even get a nap in during the day. I’ll be half in the bag tomorrow sitting at my desk.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon Frank. My throat has been on and off sore the last day or so. While I don’t feel sick otherwise, I hope it’s not my second cold of the season coming on.

    ThanX, two nights ago my throat was so dry it kept me up most of the night. I think it was the Buckleys nighttime I was taking that completely dried up the mucus. I haven’t had any since then and my throat is feeling better but my head wants to explode.
