Could have been major UPS suck

While I was home, UPS quietly tapped on my front door and left 126 pounds of packages (2 boxes containing a build-it-yourself couch a friend of mine had shipped to my house) in between my door and the side of a brick archway, blocking the front door from opening more than about 8 inches.

I was able to open the glass storm door enough to get my foot around so I could push the packages to the side and open the door, but if they left it one inch closer to my door I would have had to break the storm door to get out the front.

If it had been an emergency, or if I had been even more feeble than I am, could have been trouble. As it was, I just was left wondering how they expected me to get out to get my packages and why they didn't just put it on the other side of the door where I would actually be able to open the door.

Eh, no biggie, but hopefully someone will put "do not block access to door no matter what" in the UPS training manual.
