I'm pretty sure you can sign for it. I can remember I signed for a parcel at 13 (well at least what I can remember). I don't see 1 year would be a difference. If they don't give you the parcel then threaten to hit them with rocks and slash their tires and set the truck on fire. They will probably give it the parcel to you then.


LOL.... actually don't do that, but it would be funny to see if the guy gives it to you.

Hehe thats your opinion then

Yeah signing for it should be no problem. Its just to confirm to the delivery people you have recieved it and he/she hasn't ran off with the order

no problem at all. i signed for things all the time when i was your age, which was about 3 years ago, hehehe. Like all summer i would be ordering things for my pc.
Delivery guys don't care who sign it, they even let your neighbours sign if it's urgent.

I believe there's an age limit for signing registered letters/parcels, I'm pretty sure a child of 12 is under that limit.

Then again things have changed a lot since I got my last British passport sent to me in the UK...

A permission letter might work, it depends how good you write like your parents...

yeah, I've signed for loads of things, I signed for a saxophone before the age of 10 (not sure when but def. before that)
Its just designed to stop the bloky delivering it from nicking it, good idea really

hmm... Probably, but I'm not sure about it. Some things they let you sign for, others not. My friend signed for a boat (when he was 10), but then couldn't sign for a CD drive (when he was 14). I'm not sure about Official US documents, but probably.
