7:00PM is the latest they've ever made a delivery for me. UPS runs later. Fedex and DHL seem to cut off around 5:00PM

I've had UPS come at 8:30-9pm. I've never gotten a package that late before, but I guess it can be done.

It was ridiculous! I thought that most places stopped delivering around 5pm or so. I was all excited for my packages to come, and was bummed out when I got home around 6pm, that there wasn't a You Weren't Home slip or a package. I was resigned to my fate, when the doorbell rang, and I was trying to figure out who it could be. I was so happy it was the UPS guy, but it sucks that they're out that late. I assume they just work until all of their packages have been delivered?

They don't return untill they hit all stops, but seeing as they are Teamsters the overtime pay is incredible.
