Sounds like there's a porch pirate in your area. Not hard to computer generate a door tag that looks like FedEx, UPS, etc. and put in a bogus amount to be collected on delivery.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Hey parents it’s never a bad thing to check into people who you are entrusting your kid/s with, because you never know and better to be safe then sorry.

There's a company I've been dealing with off and on for a number of years, mostly by email.
Now a woman who is one of our main contacts has this at the end of her name:
(she/her).

Huh?

This Covid is horrible. Going on three weeks now. Anyone who says it’s fake needs to spend some time with me. 😞

It hits everybody differently. We had it in September. My kids shrugged it off in about a week. My husband about 10 days. I spent 3 days in bed (unable to do anything, barely conscious), and it took until after Christmas before I was back to normal with physical activity. My immune system is compromised and I have asthma so it's understandable.

Give it time, we all handle these things differently.
I haven't failed until I quit.

Pretty much 2-3 weeks for us starting with sore throats and then congestion.

Back to normal now...whatever that is. :D

Normal is just a setting on a dryer.

Yesterday we had a dozen and a half of friends and relatives visiting and I was asked to bbq hotdogs wieners

Some brought their own, others were catered to.
This is what I had to deal with,
Veggie dogs for the vegans.
Turkey dogs for those who don't eat red meat and don't like chicken dogs.
Chicken dogs for those that don't eat red meat and don't like turkey dogs.
Polish dogs for those who don't like REAL wieners.
Little wieners for those who don't eat the above or the big wieners.
And finally, big footlong beef wieners for those who know what a real hot dog is.

And of course, the veggie dog people wanted theirs cooked first so they weren't contaminated by those with meat in them. :cuss:

Oh, the veggie dogs? They looked just like a short fat *bleep*. And tasted like carrots. Yuk.

What a crazy, demanding world we have become.

If you have friends and family that are so picky, I would make them cook their own dinner.

BTW, Costco Hot Dogs done in the instant pot then on the BBQ are the best!
