Came home yesterday to an overnight package delivered by Fed-Ex on our porch. All 4 sides had a bright red "THIS END UP" sticker.
The attached pic is how the box was placed on it's side by Fed-ex. Fortunately, the contents were not damaged. This trend seems to be increasing for both Fed-ex and UPS.
We receive many packages (do more online than brick-n-mortar shopping), and it appears as though regardless of the shipping service they are all declining (had packages similar to this also placed on the side which had FRAGILE - and were truly fragile/damaged.) This case was classic; package delivery is not rocket science. The delivery person would've needed to be color-blind and illiterate (not likely illiterate if delivering packages.)
