---- UPS Delivered a Neighbor's Package by Mistake to My House

Since the rest of the post was basically informational, most people probably didn't think it deserved as much response as the question you asked.
Well, the three moderators here all understood my main point and also tried to explain it to people here in four different posts.

ispy, there's an important principle at stake here. The delivery company messed up, and made needless, unreasonable demands on the person who alerted them to the problem. That's not how winners do things.
ByronM, you are missing the point. The OP was not objecting to reading a tracking number nearly as much as she was objecting to all of the other demands the company was making.

The point isn't about delivery of the package. The point is about how difficult a company has made it for someone to do the right thing.

This is not about being neighborly, it's about why many people who sell on the Web may get seemingly too many reports of shipments that did not show up at the customer's address. They were mis-delivered, and the shipper makes it a hassle for the accidental recipient to do anything about it, in this case asking that the recipient stay home from work so the package could be picked up.
So if three moderators here all understood my main point, I'm not sure why it was so hard for some of the other posters here to comprehend it as well, especially if they read the mods posts in addition to mine. I also don't understand why it was necessary for some posters here to resort to snottiness and sarcasm.
