Since our other delivery man retired a year or so ago, we have had a number of different carriers. For some reason, even though I have posted 2 signs indicating that all packages should be placed on the INSIDE porch, 99% of the time now, they are dropped on the outside porch. This means that the packages are in plain view of any thieves lurking in the neighborhood AND if it rains, gets windy, snows or whatever, the package has no protection.
Yesterday my large package was dropped on the outer porch. My other mail was placed on top. I have no idea if there was any paper mail but if there was, it's long gone now. The wind whips around my porch. I am surprised the two smaller packages didn't blow away! When I look outside for packages, I look only on the enclosed porch as that's where I expect them. Please ask the carriers to practice common sense deliveries.
And here is number you call and complain to

Jeffry J. Mansfield 31 Brigham Street Laconia NH 03246. Around Noon time I let my dogs out on the deck so they could go out back in the fenced in area to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately the wind blew the back gate closed. So I went outside and the mailman showed up. He normally brings me my mail on the deck where my mailbox is. I yelled to him to hold and he said he had to leave, I yelled back hold on please. I opened the back gate and the dogs ran out. I then walked to the front gate, I think 15 seconds went by and the mailman said he should not even have delivered my mail today because I made him wait 15 seconds! He walked out with the mail all pissed off at me, saying he should not even have given me my mail. He said his boss is right behind me following me. His boss was in a white SUV. Boy, I wish I had a job that you just follow a mailman around all day like a spy. I understand why the mailman was so pissed off. This mailman is great, we never have issues with the mail when he delivers. We do have issues when other people replace him, they usually deliver the mail after 3 or 4 pm. I do not think it is right to follow behind a mailman to see how long it takes to so his route. When UPS and Fed EX drivers come here they always take the time to say hello and bring the package right up on the porch! I hope our mailman that was pissed off at me today is ok with his job. Sorry about my dogs, I am also handicapped and use a cane so I am slow. It is hard to believe that stuff like this happens a lot and if you cannot give your mail people the time to actually deliver mail to a house, what a terrible place to work!
