I have my UPS driver's phone number. My area is at the end of their delivery area most days and I wouldn't get my stuff until late afternoon. When I know something is coming I just give Brian a jingle and meet him. I've gotten pretty good knowing where he is at during certain times of the day.
You could also try having stuff shipped hold for pick up. That's hit and miss though depending on what kind of building your UPS driver is coming out of and how far away the building is. But at least then you are able to get is right away in the morning.
Itís not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
