Unhappy I need help on shipping some packeges A.S.A.P.

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]Hello Hookah Pro Community,[/FONT]
[FONT=Palatino Linotype]PakistaniMasty- here I need some help, advice, or tips. I want to buy a new Hookah and a few other things and I have been saving up so I finally have the money for it all. The only thing is that My parents don't know I smoke Hookah if they founf out they'd kill me. I want to place my oder but I can't have the packages sent to my house because they will open them and kill me. I asked a few friends if I could have it shipped to them but it's the same problem with them as well they don't want to get in trouble. I would go to the post office and rent out a P.O. Box but theyre too small and rediculosly priced. I don't know what to do and im totally bummed out because Ive been saving for a couple of months and haven't been able to smoke. If anybody has any suggestions on what I could do that I don't know of please let me know. I will really appreciate the help.[/FONT]

Why don't you just go to a shop and buy one?

Are you working or going to school? Maybe you could get it shipped to your school or work. Just an idea....

Better yet, I think the best option and the long term solution is to have a long one-on-one with your parents. You can try to tell them why you like smoking your hookah and basically start a conversation. I don't know how old you are but theoretically, since you can buy tobacco products legally you should be over 18 , which means you will be making decisions concerning your own life pretty soon if you haven't already started. Even though they may react at first, the more you guys talk the more I am sure they will understand and ease on you. Think about it, how fun it would be if you didn't have to hide while smoking...

I am sorry if it seems like I am meddling in your personal life, but I really think this is the best option...

if you get a box at a ups store or kinko, i think you coul receive large pachages and they will hold it for you, ask one of those store about that.

Tell them the truth because the truth will set you freeeeeeee.

Really, though, don't you ask the vendor to tell UPS/USPS/FedEx/whatever to hold the package for you at some undisclosed location?

Post office boxes work the same way. You get a nice little note in your PO Box saying you got mail! Then just claim it during business hours.

or you can start by talking to your parents about it. I mean, come on, unless you are not an adult yet, I think you should be able to make your own choices/

I favour talking with them about it in a frank and honest manner. I would also suggest that since they don't like smoking do so outside rather then in the house. You may want to research smoking topics a bit by looking up the various articles i've posted on the topic so that you can put the matter into some sort of rational, informed perspective rather then "I like doing it so don't hassle me" sort of possition.

Trust me, I know what your going through and telling your parents is a big no-no to me as well. They look at smoking like it is NHT or something and a bad habit and its sooo annoying. That is why I choose not to tell my mom because I know she'd take it all in so bad that I wouldn't doubt it if she KICKED ME OUT OF THE HOUSE! lol and I'm not exaggerating at all.

Anyways...

The only options so far is to have Fedex or UPS hold your package with your hookah stuff for you.

Or, try to look around your area for a place that sells good hookah stuff so you don't have to worry about anything getting shipped to your house.

Talk to them about it. be nice about it. tell them it makes you think, and calms you down. Either that, or move out.

Yes you buy a P.O. box for like $30 for a year. If the package is too big to fit in the box, they put a notice card in your P.O. box. You take the card and go inside to where the people are working and present the card. They go in the back and bring your package out to you.

Have your package sent to:
Your Name
C/O General Delivery
City, State, Postal Code

You do not need a postal box to do this.
But you may have to show ID and you wont know exactly when the package arrives, so you will have to visit the post office and inquire about your package often.

If you are over 18 and live with your parents you have to respect their wishes. They pay for all the good stuff so it is only fair. If no smoking is a rule - take it to heart.

More than likely thew best tihng to do is to tell them, I realize its a bitch and they probably would hate you for it. but imagine if something during shipping went wrong, it got delievered to your house, they sign it and open it...

YOU WOULD BE TOTALLY F*CKED. because you did it behind their backs.

So, IMO, respect their wishes, or tell them because honesty is the best policy.
