I almost hate to say anything about it, especially after hearing that your great-uncle worked for the USPS. But my mailperson has never delivered a package. If I were standing on the front porch waiting for it every day, I'd still get one of those little notices saying it was undeliverable and I have to go pick it up. I don't think he even puts them in his delivery vehicle.
And then, when I do go to pick it up, they act as if it's the first time they've ever had to go in the back and look for an undelivered package. They usually go back there and rummage for 10 minutes or so--as if they're not sure where undeliverable packages are kept--and then come back up to the counter and punch the number into the computer as if double-checking it, and then go back into the storage room. They eventually emerge with the package looking as if it's been stomped on as some kind of punishment for having gotten snarled in the system.
Thing is: I like the Post Office Dept. They remind me of a more innocent time. I wouldn't want to live in a world without them. But they sure don't love me back....
