Speaking of which, it's great that Amazon posts a photo online of where your package was

A shout out to Amazon for offering to refund the return postage for a very heavy item for which they didn't supply a pre-paid label. As they should have.

They emailed me a pic from my delivery today. Our office was open but the delivery guy couldn't even be bothered to ring the buzzer right above where he dropped off the box.

^They NEVER ring the bell, these days. It's infuriating. Thankfully, I get a notification from my camera.

I imagine the reason they don't ring the bell is to avoid the customer catching the driver and starting to ask questions thus slowing down the driver. Maybe it's policy now, especially with the proliferation of doorbell cams.

Don't you get notified as soon as Amazon delivers your items? I get an email almost before the driver can get back to his truck.

I get the app prompt. "Your delivery driver is 10 stops away." You can see it in real time (almost) if you view your order through the app. Sometimes they knock, sometimes they don't.

Yep, I like watching it so I can meet the driver outside as they drive up. Save them a trip to the door.
