Uh what? That does not happen. Ever. If you're not there they leave you a delivery notice and then leave the package at the closest post office to your address, where it stays for I think 5 days waiting to pick it up. Here, the closest post office is always within like 5 minutes drive. Mine is actually right across the street. I just got home and exactly this happened, as it does whenever I get anything delivered. I'll mosey on over there now and grab whatever it is that's waiting for me, actually... hoping it's rafstros but I'm not expecting those 'til tomorrow.
No I think they believe I don't live at that address... not that I wasn't home. Even though I've been sent packages to that exact address in the past... They didn't even decide to hold it or anything. Usually Canada Post has been good to me as well, this is the first time a mix up happened to me.
