Today a delivery guy came over to my house and knocked and asked if I would sign for a neighbors package since no one was home there, I barely know the neighbors. I felt really uncomforable about it and first told the guy to go check the shop behind the house because usually there is some one there but there wasnt't. Finally I agreed to sign and the delivery guy asked if I wanted him to leave it on their porch or to keep it at my place and I told him no I would hold it here and he said he would put a note on their door. I would hate for it to turn up missing or something About 2 hours later the neighbor came over and asked about it and I gave him the package.

The neighbor said that he have never had a delivery driver do that before and I never have either. It just seems crazy that a delivery guy would do that and I don't think I will ever sign for anyone elses stuff again. I think the delivery guy was through dhl, it was a yellow van that he was driving. Has anyone had something like that happen before?

Yep, happens all the time.  I've signed for others and others have signed for me.

i wouldn't want my packages being delivered to a neighbors house!  They either leave it on our steps or redeliver when we're home

Ups has it on file to allow my neighbor across the street to sign for my packages.

Fed ex sucks here. I hate getting deliveries from them.
I thought dhl went out of business?

ALL the time.  MOST delivery companies will try and leave it with someone else.
