My solution is insanely obvious.

ban the “package drop Off” crap entirely.
More and more People have developed a particular “ moral flexibility “  and are simply opportunistic thieves waiting to happen.

Delivery services used to be required to hand it to a human and get a signature. even when I ordered thousands of dollars of computer crap and specified “signature required” they still “dropped off” and when I called to complain and mentioned “breech of contract” all I got was the corporate line blah blah blah

So, Since that will never happen , years and years ago we got either a P.O. box or private mailbox service.
Works good.

That way I don,t have to go down the revenge path....
“ don,t make me paint my face black and call upon the children of the night!  Cuz you know I will.....”
And then the resulting karmic burden, and the increasing cycles of samsara....

Merry holidays of your choices
Love and peace and joy upon all sentient beings

Yes, I think I know the video, my youngest showed it to me tonight... We had a missing package situation this past week. My mom bought new pillows to go with the comforters she bought the boys. The tracking said they were delivered Wednesday night at 8. Well, we were home then, and no package. Also, the driver had signed for it. I think either the driver got new pillows or was too lazy to actually deliver them. The good news is, that one call to customer service and they sent the pillows! (Actually they sent extra...)

Please take a look at my website, see what I create...

I sell stuff through Amazon, and ship all the packages myself, so I have to deal with every buyer that claims that the package never arrived. About half the complaints come within hours of the recorded tracked postal delivery time, and come from people fishing for a free refund. Of what remains, there is the occasional actual stolen package, and mail thieves are like the devil to me.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
