I would question this sentiment. When he signed for 2 boxes, it is clear that he knowingly accepted delivery of a second tv that he didn't order. Obviously the delivery driver had a brain fart that day, but the fact Memmo didn't make any effort to correct this mistake in my mind makes him somewhat responsible for getting it back to the shipping company - but of course at the very least he needed to cooperate to get it back to them.
It's not like he came home to find 2 tvs on his porch - he was there when both were delivered and he signed for both of them.

I don't know about you, but when a delivery man shows up and asks me to sign, I just sign, and take whatever he gives me. I don't start questioning him about how many packages there are. Who the hell does that? Most of the time the interaction takes about 10 seconds.

That's pretty dumb.

Unabomber fodder.

I don't put my signature on anything I didn't ask for.

Understandable to an extent, Cloudy; if you typically order stuff like paper towels and cat food from Amazon and receive multiple packages per week. But I think most people who purchase TVs worth thousands of dollars are going to be a little more alert on days when those items are scheduled to be delivered and will probably notice if there are two large rectangular packages.

Then you must be quite a bubblehead not to notice 2 huge boxes instead of the one you are expecting.

If I notice two packages, then I would expect the delivery guy knows what he is doing and intended to deliver two packages. Large items sometimes come in two packages. Example the TV in one package and the stand in the other.

I don't **** off delivery people by wasting their time. 99.99999% of them are smart enough to leave the right packages, without me having to question them about it. I have also done delivery work, and I can tell you that only 1% or 2% of people pay any attention to what they are signing. If you are one of them, then you are in the very small minority who do.

We do. And who the H doesn't call the delivery company or the addressee when they realize they got (and maybe even signed for) someone else's package?

I was waiting for a box of custom shirts for an event, Fed Ex tracking showed it was delivered. When I called, they wouldn't give me any more info and made me go through the company I ordered from. They showed they addressed it to us and said they'd start an investigation with Fed Ex, which could take weeks. I called Fed Ex back and begged for them to tell me where they delivered it. She wouldn't say, but finally admitted it didn't go to our address but it was close.

So I went down the road, stopping at every business, asking if they had our box. Finally I find them at a tiny drive thru pizza place, sitting right in the kitchen, under a greasy counter. And the employees had helped themselves to a few of the shirts. Our company name and correct address was right there on the box.

In the TV case, if I was the judge, the first thing I would ask is for the receipt showing he paid for the second tv.

Who the hell questions a 7 foot, 300 pound box that get's delivered to there front door you ask? Just about everyone in the world with common sense.
