Well, then you won't want to read my forthcoming post where I whine about rude people who make mean comments for no reason to total strangers on forums I belong to. ;)
But as Buckworks pointed out, this complaint is actually relevant because many merchants here ship with UPS. There have been various threads over the years about customers who complain merchandise never arrived and carriers who claim it was delivered to their doors. The merchants usually suspect the customers of being deadbeats. I'm offering plausible reason why the merchandise never arrives and the customers might be telling the truth.
In an era when many people don't vote or sign up for 401k plans at work, actions that would be in their own self interest, they really aren't going to bother to jump through hoops at UPS to see that some stranger's package gets delivered correctly.
(By neighbors I mean I can tell from the address the people the package was sent to live in the same subdivision of 800 homes, but I don't off hand know where their house is, and I thought it was pretty sketchy that at first the UPS people seemed to want me to deliver the package for them.)
