Under the doormat, please
We’re not entirely sure who to blame for this occurrence. The delivery person actually did everything right–they placed the product beneath the doormat. Or, more accurately, they put the doormat on top of the delivery box. Quite often, when people give this type of instruction to couriers, they are trying to conceal whatever is inside so that others can’t tell what it is.
This decision wasn’t very practical. If what you order is larger than a person, then them putting it at the side of the house won’t work too well. Perhaps tell them to put it next to the garage?
