My *regular* UPS guy just now delivered jim's new monitor, and I asked him if he remembered delivering a package last Thursday.
He doesn't remember being on my route that day (I figured) but he told me that my apartment complex had recently given UPS permission to leave packages on the porches.
Then he pointed up to the balcony above us and whispered that sometimes it makes him uneasy leaving things in the open when other people are watching. (that's why he always rings the bell, even if he doesn't wait. I wish they all would do that!)
He encouraged me to call UPS and make them make good.
