UPS needing a signature?

I had a note on my door today that UPS came with a package that they need a signature for and they'd try again tomorrow. I can't for the life of me think why I would need to sign for a package? I've checked all my orders and only one is UPS and it's not due until tomorrow.
When would UPS want you to sign for a package? and what happens if I'm not home again?

Did you order drugs? Could be the shipper is just requiring proof of delivery.

If you’re not home again, they will leave a note telling you where to pick it up.

wants proof it was delivered (for any reason) they can request (and pay for) a signature. Usually, it's done with something expensive, like an Ipad or computer, but medications seems likely as well.

Nope, no medication or expensive electronics. The most expensive thing I ordered was $100 pair of UGGS. So strange.

You should be able to call the UPS terminal. My husband has picked up a couple things from UPS that were to be delivered to our home.

I think sellers get more wary around the holiday season because of greater incidences of packages getting stolen. The thieves are hoping for expensive stuff to resell
It's a hassle, but you probably just need to go in person to the post office of whatever holding location they left on the notice to pick it up in person.

If I have something with a signature, I leave a note giving permission to leave the package. That has always worked for a signature before.

Maybe somebody is sending you a gift of wine that needs a signature of someone over 21

I request signature required every time I order something and they ignore it and leave the package without even ringing the bell

It's not just expensive items, but could be important documents. The last time I had a signature required delivery it was the car title that had been transferred from my late husband's name.

Last year I had to go pick up a package because they couldn't figure out my (totally correct ) address. I heard them telling people in front of me that if they deem the package "likely to be stolen" they won't leave it and will require a signature. The employee said this could be because it's a higher crime neighborhood or they feel the package is "highly visible" from where they'd have to leave it.

Well, believe it or not it was $10 pair of pajama bottoms from Old Navy! Ha Ha! I believe it was because on my previous order with them they didn't send 2 items. When I called CS, they only had the pj pants in stock (not the other item) and agreed to send them out to me. I guess they wanted to be sure I got them
AND they actually left them today without a signature, go figure!
