must make it to the door to greet UPS or the mailman before any non receptionists get bothered if there is not one!

I'd rather not bother co-workers or other people with that stuff at work. If you're not around the package will be given to someone else nearby to give to you. I'd like to keep it more private too. That's just me though.

I pay the $50 a year for a P.O. Box... Saves having to worry about the tubes in the weather, or things being jammed into the street side mail box... Plus the wife doen't see all the incoming purchases...

I'm known as Mr. Tube at the post office...

The U.S. is crazy about tips. Maybe employees make less there?
I tried tipping my mailman once and he sent the money back in an envelope the next day.

(We still tip some people, of course, including waiters, hair people, some delivery services, etc., but it doesn't seem to be as much of a necessity or as intense).
