The UPS driver consistently leaves packages at the lower driveway door. Last summer, a box of Indian River fruit that was sent by a friend unannounced sat in the hot deep south sun for three days before we found it. Every package they deliver goes down there. Last week, $250 worth of drawer slides sat out in the pouring rain all night because we didn't know they were there. (Thanks WW Warehouse, for the very fast delivery!). On the other hand, Fedex consistently goes to the front porch. He parks on the street and walks UP the driveway.
We've called and complained. We put a note on the door. Doesn't matter. Me thinks the driver goes to the left side because the driveway is flat and he can pull right up to the door. On the right, he isn't going to make a tight right turn and uphill grade because he'll have to back out. Plus, on the right, he has to get out of the truck and actually carry the package to the front door or side door that we use. Imagine how heavy a box of 24 drawer slides must weigh.
