Our guys tends to leave our packages in all kinds of places so I try to be home when I know something is coming. I was not to happy about our new laptops being left on the windsheild of my minivan! I know the dude didnt know what was in the boxes but geezzz. I have had packages on my car, put in plastic bags and hung from a tree in my driveway. Boxes sat in the same tree and placed in my barn. I had to hunt down a package one time that was placed in the seat of the lawn mower in my barn. It was a gift sent to me by my brother so I had no clue when it would be sent so it sat there for 2 days before I noticed it.
I am glad they replaced your package.
Been there and done that. It's sort of like hide and seek. They've hid them in bushes before, off a tree, under a truck (with a note on the windshield with the location, which I was lucky since I just jumped in, started it up, and was getting ready to back up when the note caught my eye), in the bed of truck previously mentioned, in the garage (that guy was a ninja....only way in is a door and it stays locked during the day...only thing I can figure is he wedged himself in through the window the best he could and slipped it onto the bench), in the basement (one guy just walked in, sit it on the table, and left....don't worry, I checked to make sure nothing was stolen....all beer and bacon accounted for!), and a package BALANCING ON A FENCEPOST THAT WAS "SECURED" THERE WITH PACKING TAPE (that was Fedex).
Now a days, like someone else said, I signed up for and use MyUPS and reroute it to the backdoor instead of the Oak tree. Can't see it from the road, driveway, or highway.
