Asking too much of UPS

May 28, 2010

I saw the most bizarre thing the other day.

On the intercom board outside my apartment building someone has put out their UPS package delivery slip with a note asking that UPS hold on to the package until the receiver got back from summer vacation.


How exactly would that work?  Would the driver take it home with him until you came back?  When would they know to contact you in the fall?

Or maybe it would go sit at the headquarters until some magic moment when they knew to send it back out for delivery.

I don’t think UPS has the time or energy to do this for you.  If they did, then the UPS headquarters would look like the warehouse that the Ark ended up in at the end of Raiders.

Ah students, a constant source of entertainment and puzzlement.
