UPS and Smoke

I realize this is probably a lame thing to complain about but it annoys the hell out of me. We do a lot of on line shopping, especially during the holidays and I would estimate that about 95% of our packages arrive via UPS. UPS is great for fast shipping, but, and here is where I will probably get snarked for the lame part-my packages REEK of cigarette smoke! This is a new development, also, as the guy who used to run this route didn't smoke, I guess, and my packages never arrived smelling like an ashtray. And he never just dumped and run either (this guy seriously runs like he has left a flaming bag of poo on your doorstep).

I quit smoking two years ago, no one is allowed to smoke in my house and to me, the smell of it is disgusting. So I hate hate hate it when I go to take in my anticipated package and have to hold it at arms length because it smells like lung cancer waiting to happen. *sigh*  Do I have any recourse? Maybe, but I am afraid if I complain then the driver might take it out on my stuff. 

And as a side note I wish the driver would slow the f*ck down. My neighborhood is crawling with children/pets and one day I am afraid one of them is going to become a UPS hood ornament.

ETA: I sent UPS and e-mail explaining my frustration. I hope that doesnt turn into another post lol.
