How long before USPS or Fedex makes it easier to pick up packages for which you "missed" the drop-off?
Say what you want about the conveniences of ordering things online, but every time I order something I have to drive about 15 miles to the Fed or central Post Office to pick up my package because I was apparently irresponsible enough to be working instead of sitting at home all day waiting for my package. I mean, I could ship it to my work address, but I’d really rather not because it just seems unprofessional. I realize some apartment buildings allow delivery people to enter in the building, but seriously, how long before USPS or Fedex installs something like “neighborhood drop boxes” or apartment drop boxes where they could drop you a key and you use the key to get your package? At this point, it really is faster for me to just go to the store and buy what it is I need. I’m thinking this would only help companies like FedEx and USPS, as well as the entire online shopping industry. Thoughts?
