I’ve been reported to the local police for being a porch pirate! Seems a local resident has cameras everywhere on his nearby property and “caught me in the act”. Am I guilty? Yes, I am.
Overstock.com accepted my order for a folding hand cart (under $40). In the ensuing emails, I noticed I had entered my address wrong, 1515 instead of 1512!
Have you ever tried to wade through the UPS website to report a problem? Maybe you succeeded, I didn’t.
Late in the evening Overstock sent me an email saying my order was delivered. Bundled up (-2°) and went to the “wrong” address. The house is vacant but my order was on the porch. Retrieved my package and returned to my apartment building. I was caught on camera.
Same neighbor took my picture this morning while I was out walking Banner and sent it to the building manager. I printed a copy of the Overstock email with the incorrect address and gave it to him. End of story as far as he is concerned.
Am I angry about the neighborhood snoop? Not really, he is a concerned citizen. It does bring to mind we are becoming more and more a surveillance state, public and private.
Do you think I will need a lawyer?
