"out for delivery" (USPS)

Post by DHalladay » Wed Jun 30, 2021 3:25 pm

This is one of my very favorite coin phrases, although it also sends my impatience level through the roof.
More to follow later today.
When in doubt... don't.

I believe anxiety like this may be lessened by building personal relationships with your letter carrier and his supporting team (on your end of the delivery/receiving process). I don't think there is much you can do with the middle of a delivery.
This is just my opinion. Living in the woods may have an influence on my opinion. :D . I am sure you may have already done this.

I've had "Out for Delivery" go 14 days.
What pained me most is that it was an item I sold.
No way to treat an honest customer.

When I am expecting a nice coin, I closely watch the tracking info, to see what city my package is and when I see 'OUT FOR DELIVERY", I normally sit outside, near the road, around the time the mail lady stops at my mailbox.
I sign a number of those slips, for your signature, with my mail lady, so she can just leave items in my mailbox.
I live out in the normally safe farming area, but I am always to excited, to see it and have it in my hands.
Only one time, when the tracking info said, that it was OUT FOR DELIVERY and I went out, after I heard the mail truck go by, was the coin package NOT in my mail box.
I called the local PO the next morning and they checked and said it would be delivered that afternoon.
A BIG SIGH of relief, because I thought they might have lost it. Bert
