And I’m not just saying that because I work for the competition (U.S. Postal Service). I’m saying that totally as a customer. FED. EX. SUCKS.
Tuesday – Come home to find a door tag on the door where they had attempted to deliver a package. The delivery guy checked the box that says, “Signature required in person at this address” and marked the “2nd notice” box. We never received a 1st notice. No big deal. The bottom of the door tag has a thingie on it that says that we can sign and leave it back on the door so they can leave the package.
Wednesday – Hubby signs the door tag and puts it back on the door. We go to work. I get home first and find that they have left another door tag marked “Final notice” and underlined thickly and heavily (in a very smartass way) the “in person” part of the signature requirement. Hubby calls the 800# on the tag and gives them an alternate address to deliver to because HELLO we actually have to work for a living and aren’t home during the day. The woman on the phone tells him no problem, it will be delivered to his mom’s place on Thursday.
Thursday – Hubby receives a phone call from the delivery hub informing him that they’ve already attempted to deliver the package three times and they aren’t going to send it out again. Long story short and PG13 rated, the bitch on the phone flat-out refused to put the package on the truck coming to our town today and told him he was going to have to come pick it up. The delivery hub is in Humboldt, which is almost an hour away. HUBBY IS PISSED. The gas to go pick the package up is going to cost more than the actual item itself. All it is is a cord to a power supply for a laptop that he is repairing. Nevertheless, he has to have this part, so he has no choice but to drive the hour to pick it up. He left here about 5:30 this afternoon, and at 6:50 I get this text: “Yeah, I’m really pissed the f*** off now. Just got a f*****g ticket in this f*****g crack whore town.” (Hubby is very eloquent, is he not?) So now this less-than-$20 part is going to cost us God only knows what because the people at FedEx are a bunch of douchebags.
SUCK IT, FEDEX!
Oh, and by the way, Adam is giving away a $50 gift certificate to Road Runner Sport, and Rad Runner is giving away some Bradford Tonic. This is my attempt to win one of those things. Hmmm… I wonder if the Gibson County General Sessions Court accepts Road Runner Sports gift certificates as payment towards speeding tickets?
