This is nonsense. It takes seconds and most have cards readied before hand to leave if needed. They're just lazy and don't want to carry it and bring the package back to the truck.cstriker045 wrote: ↑Jan 11th, 2019 5:01 amThe volume of people placing orders and items being delivered is exponentially increasing for online shopping - 2016 there was ~$800 million in sales, in 2018 there was $1.3 billion in sales.
Post workers simply don't have time to write a note for each package that isn't delivered anymore. If it's a valuable item, deliver it to the post office. Not that hard of a concept when you realize the service has changed.
Even if there's a reason now why they can't, then remove it as part of the service they are selling. Simple.
Also, many senders (ie most retailers) refuse to ship to P.O. boxes.
