We all have those days where we really just don't want to be around or talk to other people. You could be having a bad day or you could just feel like you don't want to be social. Plenty of people can put on a fake smile for their customers at work and pretend that they're SO happy that customer is there, but they're secretly wishing the store was slow that day. What if your job is going to the customer? There's no avoiding it.
I'm talking about the men and women of delivery companies. They have to go knock on your door if your package is here whether they're in the mood or not. There's really no avoiding it. Or is there?
There was one day that I was expecting a package. I hear a knock at the door. By the time I open the door, there is no one to be seen, but there is a slip on the door from UPS saying I missed their delivery. I was just walking to the door! I then had to wait until the time and date on the slip to receive the package.
That incident would be no big deal if it didn't happen again today with FedEx. This time, there wasn't even a knock! I was heading outside and see a slip on the door. They didn't write a time they came or when they'd be back or anything. Just my name and "l e office." I asked my husband if he heard a knock. Nope! Thankfully, the l e office meant they left it in the office, but the point is, I'm not even sure if they knocked to let me know they were here!
When I'm almost always home, there are few reasons that could cause me to miss a knock on the door and I'm rather certain that's not the case from today. Even if it is and I just didn't know, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever for the UPS man/woman to be gone before I make it to the door across the room after one knock. Which leads me to my theory that this ding-dong-dash of delivery men and women is their way of avoiding the customer on a bad day.
So, if there are any delivery men and women who have done this or know a co-worker who has, is this the case?
