Secret Postal Guides

UPS/Fedex really are aggrevating. I believe I've figured them out though.At their sorting station, they make a decision on when to deliver basedon whether it's to a home or business. If it's to a home, they deliver itsometime between 11:-14:, when people are at work. If it's to be delivered toa workplace, they prefer to deliver it between 17:30 and 20:00, when mostbusinesses are closing or closed for the day. All this is designed to maximisethe inconvenience to the recipient, as their package waits in town in awarehouse for a few days before either someone gets frustrated enough to driveout there and get it, or until someone ends up disrupting their daily scheduleto wait for a package, either at work or at home, at a time when they wouldn'tnormally be at that location. Every little orange slip they leave is a taunt.

Now I fear being missing for a few days, and then being found dead in a blackplastic bag outside of one of their stations, covered in orange slips of"Missed you!" paper.
