This is true of me, too.
But last night, I got an email saying “we tried to deliver your package, but the facility was closed”. The “facility” in question was my home, and I was there. No, they didn’t ring the bell.
The weather was nasty, and I suppose the driver didn’t want to leave his warm van to climb up the flight of steps to my front door, so he just marked us “closed”. I had a cheerful half hour on the phone with Amazon last night. They said it would be shipped today. She promised to put a note saying that packages should be left on my front stoop (which is under a roof, and quite safe), and also she said she could “deprioritize” Amazon’s delivery service for so, so they will be more likely to send things by other carriers. Since I have no problems with UPS or USPS, and FedEx is okay, this should be an improvement…
Of course, the last time I complained they gave me $20 for my trouble and promised to add a note to my account says “packages should be left on my front stoop”. So we’ll see.
My guess is he saw that note, and that’s why he decided we “weren’t home”, rather than just throwing the package on my driveway.
I think I’ll keep complaining until they hire a new driver, or train this one.
