When I bought my first iPhone, much like today, I was tracking it every minute. I called the local FedEx place and asked them to track it. I didn't expect it, but the driver called me and said, "I'll be at the Radio Shack in 15 minutes if you want to meet me."
This was in a big city and I'm sure that is not the policy but that was a great day. I tipped him.
Some of you may consider giving it a try. Call and say, I'm on my lunch break and can I meet the driver or can I leave a note telling him that it is OK to leave the package.
If you meet him, you will have to show ID but that should not be an issue.
