Should You Receive Personal Packages at Work?

Porch pirates need to walk the plank!

On Wednesday’s episode of “The Real,” hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, and Adrienne Houghton discussed whether it’s appropriate or not to receive personal mail at work.

The main reason for this is to avoid “porch pirates,” aka criminals who steal packages from people’s porches!

“Don’t take people’s packages,” Love exclaimed.

Though she concedes that companies have to deal with lots of mail, Loni suggests they should have a room designated for non-work-related items — especially during the holiday season.

However, Mai noted that some businesses — especially mom-and-pop shops — would not have the space and/or resources to facilitate this.

To avoid ruthless robbers, Houghton recommends using an Amazon locker for your deliverables.

Or, if you are close with your mail carrier like Jeannie is, you can tell them to hide your belongings in a discreet area.

Ahoy, matey!
