Fake delivery guy tries Home Invasion.
Any other week I would have warned about not opening the door for anybody (even in uniform) unless they have a properly official vehicle, but the case of somebody using a fake Amazon truck to deliver pot around town has made me cancel that tune. It won’t be long before somebody figures out that is a nice way to go in neighborhoods and do mischief, armed or otherwise.
My new strategy is to yell:
JUST LEAVE IT OUTSIDE!

Over the past couple of years, the only time a delivery service doesn’t just leave it has been when a signature is needed. (And then they’ll just leave it half the time anyway.) Generally I know when I have a sig. required delivery coming.
Fortunately (???), USPS, UPS, and FedEx rarely even ring the doorbell (even though I made a cute sign). They’re happy to either block the door or leave it in the rain/snow.
They don’t use the parcel shelf under the mailbox either. Set the package on the ground, rain, sleet, or snow.
My UPS driver hits the Blink doorbell as they turn to leave. Gives me a notification that way.
