Some people might find this a little silly, but I suffer with pretty bad anxiety (to the point that I'm in therapy!) and today I have to sign for a package for the first time as I'm home alone.

I have no idea how it works and what I have to do, and I'm quite frankly terrified about it!

I'd like to ask - how does it work? Do you have to talk to the person or give ID? Is it fast?

I just suffer badly with new situations which is pretty annoying !!
thank you guys

lol.

postman will knock on the door
he may or may not be pleased to see you lol but what can ya do?
then he'll hand over an electronic pad and you sign your name
then he hands you the package
I honestly dont think he gives a **** about ID, he's too busy chatting to his mate through his headphones hoping you'd hurry up

All you do is answer the door as you would with any package and put your signature in a box then postman just hands you the package, you'll be fine.

The only check for ID I've ever had, if you could even call it that, is them asking my name (presumably to see if my surname matched the one on the package or something).

Open the door and give eachother a quick 'Hiya'. If it needs to be signed-for the guvnor will ask to 'sign here please' and pass you an electronic touchpad which you use the attached stylus to sign your name. They might use a paper record for you to sign on if the mobile device isn't working/they have broken it.

Writing with the electronic touchpad is difficult so don't worry if your signature isn't perfect and neat.

After being passed the parcel, Dan the Man will hop off in his van.
(It's usually a male doing the deliveries)

ID is only supposed to be required for restricted content. The package/order details will usually tell the driver that the item is age-restricted.

Stop copying off of me. This is exactly what I said already. There's no need for you to post.

Agree with the above. My signature turns out as a few lines, nothing resembling letters 😂 They don't care. Only interaction is probably just hi, hi, sign here, thanks, thanks (maybe a bye) *door shut* all that's necessary you'll be fine I'm sure x

Wear the bare minimum, that way when you throw out the line "I don't have any money, can we figure something out" the delivery boy/girl will catch your drift...

You'll probably put on the "Do Not Deliver" list at the pizzeria you ordered from.
