I've seen this in DCs for books I've sent, but never coming to me.  I always thought it meant they left a notice at the person's house that they had a package.  The thing is, it says "notice left" yesterday when someone was home waiting for a repairman and there wasn't a notice anywhere.  Does it mean notice left at the post office?  I'm just curious about this, and if anyone knows I'd appreciate being let in on the secret :)

Usually it means there was a notice left either saying they need to pick it up at the post office or the postman will bring it back the next day. They should have left a notice on the door or mailbox.

I've seen this several times when waiting for books and not once has there been a notice left in my mailbox.

My mailman does this to me constantly. Usually I don't know there is anything waiting for me at the post office until I go down there to send something out and the clerk tells me I have packages.

I've seen it too and have asked the receiver of the books about it.  Usually the individual has a PO Box and the books won't fit into them so a notice is left.
