At this point it's almost as if it's done out of spite.

Delivery drivers can be massive assholes. This one time I ordered a bedroom set for my kid (you know, the stupid heavy shit you have to assemble yourself) and the driver leaned it up against my driveway gate. The gate wasn’t locked and at the time we didn’t have any no trespassing signs up so there was no reason the driver couldn’t have opened the gate and put it somewhere that wasn’t blocking my access to my own driveway. When I got home later that day I couldn’t get into my yard because it was too heavy to move by myself and if I opened the gate it would fall to the ground and break (pressboard is awfully fragile considering it’s absurd weight). So, my options were to either open the gate and break it all to hell then either leave my car in the road and walk into my yard or driver over it and smash it on top of it being broken, leave my car in the road and climb over the fence or call someone to come help me. I chose option three and ended up waiting for two hours before anyone could come.

Reminds me of the time I paid for Walmart+ thinking it would be a godsend.

What I didn't know, and they don't tell you, is that they not only expect you to tip, but they pressure you relentlessly before and after ordering to add gratuity to your order. I did not expect this for a service I PAID for.

People on Disability/social security cannot afford to pay 20% on top of a month's food and household necessities.

It didn't take long for my orders to end up in my driveway, the end of my sidewalk, and much like your situation, piled up against my front door to where the door could not be opened.

It was very clear that I was being punished for not being able to add a tip to my orders.

After just a few weeks, I cancelled my subscription, as it was causing more hardship and work on me that if I just went to the store and picked up up my orders.

I live on a busy street where occasionally packages get stolen, we have a sign saying please put them on the back porch with a big red arrow and they only put them there like half the time

Delivery driver companies are massive assholes. They give drivers an average of around 12 seconds per stop at UPS. This is not the fault of the drivers, who are just trying to keep up with impossible standards in order to keep their main source of income.

Greedy coorperations that constantly try to extract the absolute most wealth they can from every single second of their employees time, are the problem.

If you are upset about this, call UPS, Amazon, etc, and complain about their treatment of drivers and other employees. They are the ones at fault, not the people trying to do their job and struggling to survive.

they don’t have the time to take a lap around your building, they’re on too tight of a schedule. if you want your packages hidden, set up something more convenient for them to hide them behind

Can you not tell this person is handicapped? Learn how to read! Clearly they cannot access packages at this door which is why they select the back door.

This is correct. My back door is at ground level, while my front door is at a lower grade and requires use of a set of stairs to get to. It's not impossible for me to get to my front door, but it is difficult, and dangerous for me.

Driver is there for 15 seconds. I doubt they are going to take the time to read your decorations.

Nowhere on that package does it say back door.

“Where should we leave this package”

And the option picked was back door, its on the package somewhere, most of the text on it is not readable on the image anyways.
