    Hmm I guess you have to trust your gut about it but to me no I don't think it's creepy. We used to live in a small town and there was one parcel delivery person. If he saw me while I was out on a walk he would wave and know to come later (if I had to sign) or leave it inside my gate. There are friendly people out there. Maybe he feed cause he sees you so often that small talk is a way to be friendly. Like I said got to trust your gut also but on these things alone I wouldn't be overly creeped out.

    Normally I'd say a guy like that is probably lonely.

    But there are a number of red flags in your description that prompt me to say yes, I think you are right, yes, tell your DH and yes, change your routine; eg. leave earlier for work, take a different route, enlist some help to get kids to school, reiterate to Day Care that only you can pick them up and give them a heads up.

    It's smart to be on guard and proactive about safety. Four kids ran for their lives the other night when a man burst into their home firing a gun. Over near where I am, a man burst into a home in the middle of the night trying to grab a child.

    I mean, it does pay to be vigilant as there are too many crazies around.

    First of all he can loose his job by giving you other people's mail. My dad is a postie and that's a massive no no. So yes alarm bells would be ringing for me too. Also not sure where you live but my dad only works Saturday's in the lead up to Christmas.

    He might be an independent contractor though, rather than an Aust Post employee, and if so, he can probably work whenever he wants/needs to get the parcels delivered. As i understand it, the people who deliver parcels are often independent contractors, and may get paid, in part, per parcel delivery ( but not sure on that).

    ETA, yes parcel delivery contractors are often paid per parcel, and often quite poorly paid. Approximately 70% of parcels, and 10% of regular mail, is delivered by independent contractors.

    I am guessing he is probably just very awkward. I know AP also takes on a lot of employees with disabilities. However disability or not i think you need to be careful at all times. Id start having things delivered at work and create some space and id def tell DH
