Amazon prime delivery rant

The amazon prime delivery vans run all day every day around here. I live on a busy narrow 2 lane county road with lots of houses, the Amazon van drivers pull up in front of a house and just park in the road to walk up to the house, traffic backs up because there is no way to get around them at busy times. The driveways are easy to get in but maybe hard to get out of because of traffic. The drivers just stroll up to the house like they have all day. Its funny, Fed Ex and UPS never have to block the road when they make deliveries. The road has NO shoulder and is very narrow, if you drop off the edge you have a drop of about 2 feet, the drop off starts at the white line on the side of the road, its a very dangerous road and these idiots don't even care.
OK rant over.

Re: Amazon prime delivery rant

Most Amazon drivers are contractors that own their own trucks financed by Amazon .

Fed Ex and UPS guys are in a hurry.

Amazon people are not.

Re: Amazon prime delivery rant

Hmmm.....my UPS driver always takes time when he delivers to see what I'm working on in my shop when he brings me parts.
I was just talking with Philip the other day about the time he was at my shop when the UPS driver pulled up and pointed to a car by the side of my shop (a Mustang II Cobra) asking if I was taking a walk on the wild side. I don't think he's ever seen anything but GM stuff out here.
I have a 500+ ft driveway. All drivers, UPS, FedEx, and Amazon pull in and drive around the circle between the garage, shop and house. No traffic jams here.

Re: Amazon prime delivery rant

I worked for USPS as a carrier for 30 yrs. Retired Oct'18.
One day Im delivering and just about to pull up to the next mailbox and an Amazon guy was coming up the other side slowly. As I get closer ,he has his hand up motioning me to stop. Im thinking heres another guy looking for some address. So what does he do? He pulls right in front of me, gets out and goes to his truck and gets a package for the house Im just about to deliver mail to! He walks slowly up to the door and back as Im shaking my head in disbelief ! He just gets in to his car and goes, never looking at me. I was about to scream at him, but kept my cool this time.

While Im on the subject, these other delivery guys,all of them,Fed Ex, UPS,ect. now think its OK if they have a small package that its OK to put in the mailbox if they can?? Its not, and they are aware of it also.Too lazy to do their job to go to the door of the house. And Im not talking long distances either. ( Ill give exceptions for that one house that cant be seen from the road). I can tell you numerous times that I pull up to a box ready to put a handful of mail into it, and see a package jammed into the box with no room for the mail. Well, from there it goes straight to the ground.Rain or not. (Its what we were instructed to do. Sometimes they told us to bring it back to the PO) Mail goes into the box, nothing else. The box isnt for their use or anyone else for that matter. No ones allowed to go into your box to look, or put flyers or business cards in there either. It might sound petty, but people tell me they had outgoing mail for me, but I missed it? Why, because some idiot came and threw their flyer , or package in on top of whats already in there,making it unseen.
But, I did leave the flyers that a neighborhood kid left, looking to cut grass or babysit.
I wont mention the cheap people that dont mail their Christmas cards to neighbors, but will walk around and just put them in mailboxes after hours, thinking that its OK?? That gets picked up and sent back to whoever left it, if there's a return name on it, or it ends up somewhere in the systems "postage due" section. To me thats just as bad as someone sending an email saying Happy Birthday, when they used to send an actual card!( I got to go get an aspirin, that jobs still getting to me! LOL)

Re: Amazon prime delivery rant

Will we see a rant post if your prime package doesn't get there in time??

This is what's wrong with people today, quick to complain about everything.
Try living in a city where we have to deal with people double parking all day everyday. Delivery companies, Uber, Lyft, Taxi and everybody else. There are times when the street is completely blocked and I have to turn around and find another way.

I don't do Amazon Prime, and the things you list are the reasons I wouldn't live in a city. Sounds like you are complaining about the same thing that I was.
