Do you have to be secretive about your packages?

ChubbyNerd ChubbyNerd
Does anyone else have to make sure when they order something from Eden that it's going to get there on a day where no one is home or no one is going to see? I still live at home, so I make sure my packages get here on a day that my parents are at work. So does anyone have to do that to hide it from their parents or kids or someone?!

Random story;
The first package I got from Eden the mail lady for some reason put the box in my mom's car and left a note in the mailbox saying so. I went out to check the mail since I knew I was getting it that day to find the note and hurry to get the box from the car. That could've ended badly if my mom had found it and opened it. Talk about awkward.

ps. not sure if this has been talked about before or not.

My husband and I have our own apartment. The only issue I have ever dealt with are my children wondering what the boxes contain. I simply tell them that it's nothing for them and that seems to satisfy their curiosity.

somewhat! My billing address is my parent's address still, so I have to QUADRUPLE check that I'm selecting the correct shipping address when ordering

I am glad that the boxes are completely discreet, though.

Yes, I do. Living with my parents... I know eventually a box will get intercepted (even worse since except for the middle name my name and my dad's name is the same) and it will probably be a box with a large butt plug and dildos or something.


Oh well, my sexual satisfaction is more important than the potential embarrassment.

No, I don't have to be secretive. No one lives with me except my husband and son, and my husband usually knows what all I've ordered before it's delivered.

They weren't from Eden, but we've had package's delivered to the neighbor's house by accident before. So, we both like to keep an eye out when one of us is expecting something.

On another note, ChubbyNerd, I find it horrifying and a huge violation of privacy that your mail carrier just opened your mom's car like that. If the door to your house had been unlocked, would she have let herself in there as well? I feel a little ill just thinking about it.

Yeah, I told my mom that the mail lady had put the package in her car and she didn't like that one bit. I have no idea what made her put it in the car instead of on the porch or the mail box, but it hasn't happened since. Of course once I told my mom about it she wanted to know what I had got, and had to lie to her.

No, I don't have to be secretive about it. My husband knows about Eden, and my son never messes around with packages that were not addressed to him. I normally leave the box unopened in the foyer until I'm ready to open it, and no one will touch it at all.

Out of curiosity, did either of you ever report the incident to the post office? I'd be interested to see what they would have to say about it. I highly doubt that is something that'd be officially approved of.

Lol -- normally I'm too excited. I'd probably shout, "It's my new vibrator!!"

No, I don't have to hide it, my son knows better than to be nosy about my packages because I've told him that I review grown up/adult toys and they're none of his business. At this point he's gotten used to the amount of packages I receive and barely asks about them anymore. That and my husband knows all about it along with most of our close friends and our parents.

I do and I don't. Packages are okay it is just when I open them up. If it is toys then yes for anything else I don't really care. I have children around.

My kids have learned to look at the address and put them on my bed if they're from here. They are teenagers and not stupid but have never asked what's in them they just put them there and leave it at that.

Nah, my family knows I review toys and they just think it's funny.

If I were at home, my mom would ask me about what was in my packages, but since I'm staying with my boyfriend right now, I have no issues receiving mail.

Kind of, but not really. I do live with my mom but she's not super nosy about my packages and she doesn't open my stuff.

I live with my mother but usually the family is good about not looking in each other's packages. She knows that sometimes I order these things so it's not a big deal if she looks -- more of a minor embarrassment, if anything.

My parents never worry about what I'm getting in the mail. They know I order such things and even before they knew what was inside I didn't have to have a story to tell to cover it up. Only thing I had to explain was how I was getting so many packages when I've got very little money. I simply said I review and earn points I get it free an they said okay (:

Even at my cousins I don't have to hide anything my cousin and her husband know what I get when I'm over there cause I've got them I here now as well.

Yes, I also live at home still. Sometimes I ask my boyfriend if I can send my packages there, which makes it easier, but when I do get them delivered to my house I worry about being asked questions :p

OMG! They left it in her car?! Yikes! Now that would make me sweat a little, but I know my mom would never open a package of mine.

I voted no, I don't have to worry. I have packages sent to my parent's house and used to, that was my only option! Then I had to get a PO Box since a family member was stealing my mail, so I really didn't have any worries, but lately, I've had them sent to my mom's house because I'm often there when the mail runs and it gets to me much sooner if I do that instead of my PObox.

One time, around my mom's B-day, I'd ordered her something (Smart Wand) and told her it was coming in the mail. Well, my partner had picked it up from my post office box & we were walking in her house. The problem was, it wasn't only her Smart Wand in the box! It was a piece of lingerie and vibe for me too! And she went to take the box out of my hand and I snatched it back and said "um.. I have to wrap it first silly!" LOL. I tore the vibe and lingerie out of there so quick and had it stashed in the car before things escalated. Lol.

I don't hide them from anyone else besides family and the kids. Other family members though, like my sisters have seen my collection and I've gifted them toys, so it's no big deal if they're around when I get a package, but I would be so embarrassed if my mom or dad saw the inside of one of my packages! Or my grandmother! Oh dear God, I'd be humiliated.

I still have some packages sent to my parent's house if I know it'll be the quickest way to get it -- the post office is really bad about not giving me my packages for days and days at a time. But thankfully, my parents don't think anything of it and they don't ask questions or look in the box if it arrives before I get there. They just sit it on the table for me.

My mom orders a lot of stuff online too, so she often has packages come to her house as well and sometimes, she'll get me to pick it up from the post office. We kind of have a silent rule that we just don't open or question each other's packages! Lol. Unless it's books and we can tell from the package that it's defintely books. I did accidentally open one of her books last week though! I felt so bad, but I thought it was mine. When I seen it was a book and knew I didn't order one, I didn't even look at the front page, just put it back and explained later.

I wouldn't be angry if they accidentally opened one of my EF packages. I would just be embarrassed. My mom would probably laugh. Once I got one of those C-string panties in the mail and opened it in front of my sister and mom and holy crap! I did not know that's what was inside, but it wasn't too embarrassing, and we all laughed hysterically and played with it. But I learned never to open packages in front of people again, just in case.

Haven't really had to worry, I live in an apartment complex so we have to be there when the package gets there, or else it gets sent back to re-deliver the next day. It's really tedious.

No, we didn't file a report or anything. If it happens again I'm sure my mom will.

Nope, it's just me, my partner and our 1 year old at home. No need to be discreet yet until she's old enough to know whats in the box!

Maybe it was raining? Still it's weird she even thought to open the car. I'm on good terms with my mail person & he hesitates to put packages inside the breezeway screen door even when it's propped open for the cats!

No, I live alone, so I don't have to worry. But, I lived at home for a long time & was always worried about them opening anything I had delivered!

A little bit, but fortunately I tend to be the one who gets the mail.
