    Right about...here.
    It's just gonna sit on the post office or something. >_> Shouldn't this be in the General-Offtopic section or Testing Area? People usually post these kinds of things there...

    In the UK, they leave a slip if it was a registerd post or the item was too big to push it through the door-postway.

    I am sure they leave a slip in the USA aswell to get the item from the post office.

    Some places will deliver it to a neighbour, others leave it in your garden, whilst others may put a slip through your door, asking you to go to your nearest post office to pick it up. There may be others, but i dunno.

    Depends the shipping method.

    USPS (United States Postal Service) will most likely leave it in your mailbox (assuming you're ordering a MicroSD or a flash card or other small object). If the package is big, they'll leave it at your front door under your doormat.

    UPS will knock on your door, if you're not home then they'll either leave it at your doorstep or come back another time. This depends on where you bought the item and what delivery option the seller chose for you. In some cases, they'll require a signature too. If you're not home for 3 times, then you'll have to pick it up yourself at a UPS distribution center.

    They can also deliver it to a neighbor but I think that's a rare case. You never know how trustworthy your neighbors are. [​IMG]

    I swear they sometimes leave slips just to piss you off. I was in all morning one Saturday and I heard no bell or knock at the door and I came downstairs to find the slip waiting there. Of course, by the time I found it the office had closed...

    WTF?!

    You bilieve all that shit?
    No ones gonna keep your post, chill out mate.

    They were just kidding...

    Postman will either leave a slip, to get the item from the post office. Or the leave a slip to get the item from your close neighbour.

    Simple, dont go to school for the next week or so until you get it.

    It's not illegal to be off school if youre waiting for a package through the mail,

    so tell that to any police or watever who ask why you're off school.

    The mailman will not steal it. Why would he risk losing his job over a package that he doesn't even know the contents of?

    You'll come home from school one day and there will be a package in your mailbox with your precious Supercard in it. Happy?
