Edgy take being pro-burglary.
OP be like "let's not blame the criminals for doing something illegal and instead blame the victims of said crime instead."
I Never Said that. Porch pirates are assholes. But so are people who demand a replacement from someone for being robbed.
Like it's my fault you didn't leave a note or take BASIC precautions on this $700 computer coming to you?
Wait, doesn't the delivery driver need your clear consent to just leave it on the porch? That makes a lot of sense why that stuff is so common in the US then.
what if they scoop it up before I can get outside?
What if I am not home when the UPS driver comes?
Why can't people just keep their hands off of other people's merchandise?
I am not defending porch pirates I'm saying people should have some level of accountability for package security.
I live in a condo. The number of times I've had packages just left in the main floor lobby area just blows my mind. Luckily most of the people that live here are honest. But how do they consider this a secure and complete delivery? It didn't make it to "MY" front door. I guess this is good enough for some delivery companies.
It might not be ok with the company and I would call and complain.
That's dumb to be honest. If the delivery says it's supposed to be at the house a week or two later and decides to show up far earlier than anticipated while I'm out taking care of business, then that's not my fault. And I've had it happen twice in a row with my packages. Fortunately I didn't have anything stolen and had gotten my stuff early, but that's on the delivery service for that should anything had happened.
I agree. It's on the DELIVERY service, or the cops. Not the person who sold it.
I had a long week and I'm really salty about it clearly lol.
Exactly. What was the porch wearing?
The porch was completely bare, out in the open, just asking for that burglar.
you can still have sympathy for people, even if they made an error in judgement or are victims of unfortunate circumstance
easy for someone who hasn't had a PS5 snatched off their porch to say
Oh you mean like checking off to require a signature? That thing 90% of mail carriers fail to enforce?
OP lives in some fantasy
Meh-agreed to an extent. Things come up though. We can't always control our circumstances. Also sometimes the item comes sooner or later than expected. That being said I've had my share of porch theft 😆
Quick addendum to add I work in online customer service and the number of people who think we owe them a refund or it's somehow our fault for their own stupidity is astounding.
Not all delivery notifications are accurate or timely, however I have paid more to get a required signature on delivery.
I have never been a victim of porch piracy but I had delivery people drop their package on my porch even tho I was home. Without knocking. More than once. And there where also times when I got the message that a delivery was due on a certain date, around a certain time and arranged my sheduel to be home during the given time, and than they came an entire day early when I wasn't home.
Or, crazy idea, I know, but what if we just don't steal other people's crap?
