The holiday season apparently brings out the worst in delivery personnel. Almost exactly a year since a FedEx delivery mantossed a computer monitor over a fence — possibly irritated at the sheer number of deliveries he had to make — a possible “partner in crime,” a UPS delivery man, did something even more heinous.
A UPS delivery man did more than make a delivery; he stole something at the same time. Optimization, of course. Fortunately, customer Al Alverson had a lot of tools at his disposal, and a lot of urgency, too, with Christmas coming. With all that, he was able to get the stolen item, an iPad mini, back by Thursday afternoon.
