That's just weird though. Why not take the box? Or ALL the contents?

Why don't you lock your door? That seems dumb.

I think the most important part of that story is that it's ups delivering something. Just the worst company. They ring the bell, and by the time I'm at the door they are back in their truck driving away, leaving whatever the package is outside. It's like a company of children playing Nicky Nicky nine door.

Announcing that it's not locked on the internet doesn't seem like a good idea either.

That seems like a terrible company to work for. Years ago in Vancouver I briefly worked in a warehouse and we dealt with a number of different couriers; Purolator, Can-Par, UPS, others that slip my mind now.. The UPS drivers ALWAYS seemed stressed out of their minds and rushing around, I hated dealing with them because of that. Then blasting their horns and yelling when departing, if another truck was briefly in their way or something. They were easily the most consistently stressed out of the different couriers.

I just got the impression from that, that UPS loads up their drivers with nearly impossible to meet delivery quotas, and probably harsh penalties if you don't finish. Forever whipping around town like they're late for work, working on heart attacks in their stupid brown pants

Not true. I don't mind eating with the people. Who's designing your paper plates this season?

Those were some classy thieves. They clearly know the value of Fornasetti, but they already have enough in their current collection to not need any doubles.

So many questions.

What's the deal with the plates? Do you collect them? Are they for display? Do you actually use them?

Do they look like this?

Spoiler!


Google tells me these cost anywhere from $2000 to $10k. Is that legit? Did UPS leave $10k plates just sitting in your building foyer?

What is the recourse here? Is it UPS's fault for safe dropping and not getting a signature? I have to assume the shipment was insured.

New gear-grinder: Finding a hole in your bedroom wall and a bullet on the ground at the head of your bed.

Hate it when that happens.

I'll leave the pictures up to forensics.

Police figure it was an almost-spent round from a high-powered rifle fired from the Tsuu Tina. No foul play suspected. Just high-spirited fun, I suppose.

How close to Tsuu Tina are you? That seems incredibly scary.

And what is an "almost spent round"? That makes no sense.

I suspect he means that there wasn't much left behind it because it had flown a fair distance and lost a lot of its momentum? I don't know how the physics actually work there, it's possible that that makes no sense.

No, that's pretty much what it is. Or a bullet that's lost a lot of it's 'punch' power because its gone through several other things (like walls) and just doesn't have much energy left to impart.

In this case, that's why he found the bullet. It 'ran out of gas' after going through his wall. Instead of him finding two paired bullet holes in his walls.

So it was poor wording that was imparted at the scene.

He has a projectile/bullet in his house that had expended all its kinetic energy though flight and contact with the walls.
