View Full Version : The Triple P (Yes this involves the post office)

Picking up Pods at the Post office....
Why is it that vendors gotta make you sign for the stuff? I don't get it- same vendor, only a month and a half since my buddy ordered some pods.... Last time no signature was needed, but this time it is.
What is the deal with that? Now he has to go down to the post office and sign for the damn package and pick it up. He is a little nervous. Even though he uses the pods for strictly ornamental applications (obviously), he is a bit nervous about picking them up. I told him not to worry about it, but he is still trippin...
So has anyone here had any problems picking up your floral supplies at the post office?
Have you done that often?
Please share your experience so that my buddy may have his mind put to ease :D

Never had any problems... the only reason I could think of is if they were overnighted, then I believe you must sign.
If priority its a bit strange but not unheard of.

My buddy gets them via express mail. The mail wo/man drops them off right at his front door. No signing or contact involved. He hasn't been using them long but four out of four orders were delivered in said manner.
My buddy's regular mailman knows what's up. When the latest shipment arrived he was walking out to his car and the mail truck pulled up in front of his house. The mailman hops out and says, "Just thought I'd let you know that I drop *packages* off first before I start walking the block." When he said, "Packages" he have my buddy a wink and they both started laughing.

I have this strange nazi-guy--a brownshirt, none-the-less--who drops off my buddies packages. Lil'Hitler makes him sign for the delivery too.

You guys crack me up!
The only reason my buddy is nervous is that he actually has to go down to the post office since they attempted drop off once. It just seems a bit nerve racking for him to go down there to a federal building and sign for something of questionable standing.
I guess he could call the number and arrange to have them delivered again, but it said that could take up to two more days. Defeats the purpose of overnight to begin with then. . . .

Don't worry man everythings fine.
If they did know they would probably deliver them so they could watch you receive/open them.
They have no idea when you will show up to get them, and in all reality I really think they have bigger fish to fry.
If makes you feel better when you pick them up say "I wasn't expecting a package"

It seems like with some vendors whether or not you have to sign is dependent on the size/cost of your order as well as the type of shipping. I've never had any problems either way.
Of course, if they gave you on-line tracking information you can use the tracking number to request a re-delivery attempt the next day (and the day after that should that fail and so on).
