Want a laugh, UPS delivers across my street in the morning and my side of the street after 6PM.

I guess nobody on your side on the street has a UPS business account that pays for daily pick ups and scheduled deliveries?

I have to laugh at you, just for basic general business reasons.

I have the cell phone numbers of my UPS drivers.
If I don't have anything for them, I call them and tell them to skip the scheduled pick up.(as a courtesy call)

If I know I will have over 20 packages for them, I tell them when they deliver the am run, or call them in the afternoon, and tell them to come to the big loading dock in the afternoon.(also a courtesy call).

“My” UPS drivers know what I am flexable about, and what I won't tolerate.

But then, it does make a huge difference if you have an UPS shipping account worth thousands of dollars each month, as opposed to some guy across the street in a house, waiting for a once or twice a year package delivery!

How awfull that UPS Ground assumes it is better to deliver packages to home residences after normal business hours, when you are far more likely to be home to receive them!

If you get a lot of UPS home deliveries, you could tell your UPS driver that you would prefer morning deliveries, whenever possible.
If you don't know your local UPS route driver by sight or name, well, best you STFU and understand that you are not as smart and important as you think you are...especiaully when you are not paying for daily pick up/delivery rates
