My chair in the family room is theoretically visible through the windows bracketing the front door, so hiding isn’t a good option (not that I haven’t gotten away with it because some visitors couldn’t bring themselves to look).
As for delivery people, we have an advantage: our front porch isn’t visible from the road so porch pirates don’t take the risk. There are plenty of other houses around where they can see if there’s loot to steal without driving so far onto private property.

"I couldn't possibly fail to disagree with you less."
It is written
"Cain was an agriculturalist and therefore most probably a vegetarian: while Abel kept flocks and killed and ate them. I am sure that somewhere in this fact is to be found the key of that dark and terrible story. It seems so like a vegetarian to kill his brother on strictly altruistic principles." — G. K. Chesterton
