Send Bail Money


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. 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?

It was only a matter of time... LOL
You are working way too hard at getting busted for something.

I'm such a nobody!

LOL, nah, you owned up to it and gave them the proof. You're good (but you're now on ANOTHER list)...

Providing employment to data collectors, I suppose.

Addressed to you, they'd have been breaking the law if they opened your package.
Would they have opened it?

That is a good question. I don't know.
