Bonehead,

As a delivery driver, it's just force of habit. Even if you put a note on your order, we've just done the same thing 20 times before we get to your house. It's automatic. Better to put a sign on your door. Maybe say you have a sleeping baby or something and you don't want to wake them up. That way hopefully we see the note as we're about to knock.

Yeah I totally get that and I’m not actually mad at anyone who does it. It’s just annoying, you know? But it’s not like there are robots coming to deliver stuff to my house, it’s humans. It’s fine.

Bonehead,

Completely understandable. But for those of us that would prefer to avoid interacting with people, playing into human nature can help. We'll forget the note in the package the second it's been scanned and ready to deliver. We'll usually stop and read the note on the door at eye level just before we knock. A little social engineering can go a long way.

It’s a good tip for sure. Tbh it’s not annoying enough to not just open the door or answer the call because I’m usually very hungry.

MashedTech,

“I wonder where you could be…” playful tone

pretending not to notice the obvious hiding spot

“Is someone under there?”

lifting blanket

“Found you”

Anticorp,

So weird. I get really upset that they don’t knock or ring the bell. I can easily miss a phone notification and then my food sits out there getting cold and soggy. IDC if they wait or not, but I need to know that the food has arrived and the easiest way for them to notify me is to spend 2 seconds reaching out and ringing the doorbell. It’s easy and costs them nothing, but only about 1 out of 20 will actually do that despite explicit instructions to do so.

Tbh what’s worse is when they fucking call because they can’t find your apartment but then they’re standing literally outside your door.

Ringing the doorbell and leaving is fine, but if I’ve specifically instructed no contact waiting at the door or calling (when they’ve made no effort to look) is pretty annoying.

Anticorp,

It seems that they’re just going to do whatever the opposite of our requests is. Try telling them to ring the bell. That’s what I do and they almost never do it.

Should ask them to ring the bell, and explain that I want to talk for approximately 20 minutes about jesus.

Anticorp,

That aughta do it.

This is where the doorbell cam comes in handy. Plus I can know when they left so I can avoid any chance of human interaction!
