Re: UPS Delivered to Wrong Address!

I would get used to this. Several decades ago when I was a young shaver, we always received calls for the pizza parlor. Their number was 554-4003, and ours was 555-4003.
Sure, it wasn't professionals making the calls, but my point is that when things are very similar mistakes can happen.
Those addresses are very similar. Your streets are about 1-1/2 miles from each other. They are probably used to looking at the house number first, then the street name. Many streets have only one word in them.
As an example, in your neighborhood there is:Bruce Dr Marion Ave Talbot St Palma Dr Ambrose Dr Baywood Pl Woodside Dr Roker St, etc etc. Yes, there are San Vincente Ave San Antonio St and a few others, but most have just one name.
On the other hand, within 500 feet of each other there are San Felipe Ct and San Felipe St. So you can see delivery people have their hands full.
It would be great if UPS can pay careful enough attention so this doesn't happen in the future, but I wouldn't count on it.
