UPS Box difficulty
UPS Box confuses people in Hoboken
Do you ever wonder how stupid some people can be? Sure, we all make mistakes from time to time. It’s human nature. But this UPS box at the corner of 3rd & Madison has a note taped to it that can lead one to worry about society in general.
Mailboxes and UPS boxes look completely different
Residential U.S. Postal Service mailboxes have pretty much looked the same for many decades. Blue, with a curved-top design. Unmistakable, in fact.
And I’m sure the designers at UPS took that in consideration when making their package drop boxes. Highly-visible yellow, completely different shape, large “UPS” logo, etc. I have no problem identifying them, do you?
Well – apparently this UPS box is mistaken for a USPS mailbox so often, that it warranted a permanent note taped to it: “This is NOT a post office box. Do NOT put regular mail! Not a USPS box!”
Man, maybe selling bridges in Hoboken isn’t such a bad idea after all…
