Your move, UPS

I’ve been expecting a package from Amazon that UPS was supposed to deliver on Wednesday. It didn’t arrive on the appointed date, and when I checked the order status, the first lie appeared:

Wednesday, May 27 – 9:14 p.m.
Delivery attempted – Signature is required or unable to find secure location

Thursday, May 28 – 9:34 p.m.
Delivery attempted

For starters, we were home both evenings. It is, after all, still in the middle of a pandemic. Also, the house has a screened-in front porch with a door that does an excellent job of obscuring packages left at the front door:

And finally, we’ve got two Ring cameras that have the front porch in its field of view, and review of the footage shows that nobody — and especially not a UPS delivery person — showed up at our front door on either night:

A screenshot from my Ring app’s display of last night’s front door footage. No UPS delivery truck or person all evening. Tap the image to see it at full size.

Hence this tweet…

…which led to this reply:

I’ve DM’d them the details they ask for, and now it’s time to wait and see.
