The other day, I arrived home to find this little tableau at my front door.
I have to wonder at the thought process of the delivery guy. Did he really think that nobody would think to look behind the out-of-place welcome mat to see the package? Is the delivery guy one-third possum on his father’s side?
Maybe this is an offshoot of the “fake it til you make it” approach to life, doing things a certain way in the hopes that nobody will call you out on how wrong you are. Or maybe I’m overthinking it.
Editor’s Note: I’m attempting to blog every day in November with CheerPeppers. I don’t expect to succeed because life be crazy, but any blogging in excess of my previous post-free month is a win, right?

We have a screened front porch. I’d a lot rather find what you did than to have mail and delivery packages left outside the screen door. It’s not locked. It protects the parcels from weather and/or casual passers by. Why would they leave it outside?? You could have just cleaned your mat and left it that way to dry. There’s not necessarily a package under there. I believe you are, indeed, overthinking it.
They don’t even try to hide packages here – if it won’t fit in the package part of the mailbox they just leave it standing on top of the mailboxes (unless it’s something that needs to be signed for). If the door is open for some reason they will leave packages inside, but if the door is wide open they might as well be on top of the mailboxes. So far I’m not aware of any of my packages having been taken though.
The best one I ever heard was my colleague’s brother. He came home to one of those “You have a package” cards on which the delivery person had written “Your package is in the paper recycling container”. Luckily the paper recycling hadn’t been collected that day…
