In an affluent town, just north of here, where a conspicuous preponderance of mini-mansions abound, someone has come up with a unique way of avoiding the whole nuisance of Christmas shopping. According to the local news, this person follows the usual delivery trucks and swipes packages left unattended on doorsteps. In broad daylight.
Yesterday, I had to actually sign for a package that UPS tried to deliver the day before. Normally, the driver just leaves the box on my doorstep.
Fa-la-lalala. . . .
