I live with my parents and when I order things on Amazon or E-bay sometimes I like them not to see my mail come in. So is it rude to have packages sent to my work? I don't usually see people doing it except sometimes at the holidays? I just don't want to create issues or get into trouble with it. I used to have the packages held at the store but sometimes when I try to do it, it won't let me and they still come to my house instead. I mean, I don't have packages all the time but maybe a couple every few months. If it's just clothes or something small I don't mind my parents seeing it but packages and bigger things sometimes my mom doesn't like it.
Part of this is why I want my own house with own mailbox, etc.
You could go to the post office and get a PO box. It's like $30 for six months. Even if you have one that's too small for big packages they'll just hold them for you till you come get them. At least at where I used to have one would do that. Posted via Mobile Device
I think it's dependent on your workplace. At my last job, this was normal and there were zero issues with it. You even get a notification from reception if a personal delivery arrives for you! Sort of like an employee perk or service.
Rude is doing anything that makes other people uncomfortable. The whole purpose of good manners is to show respect for others. I see nothing rude about sending packages to work. Many people have an issue with packages being stolen at home. If you aren’t creating a problem for anyone else it shouldn’t be a problem and I don’t see how this can be a problem unless you fail to pick up your packages.
