Is this the first small package delivery bashing thread you've been involved in? It's basically a pitch fork and torch scenario and if you defend the workers or the industry, you get branded as a witch. Sorry man, but I had to.No, actually you're the first one who has said that to me.
Same package was once again “Out for Delivery” yesterday, that’s four days in a row, never showed and now is scheduled for delivery next Tuesday. “C U Next Tuesday!” I said!I don’t mind longer shipping times and logistical complications, it’s a complex world we live in, but what I DO mind is the explanations that are flat out lies. I’m waiting on a package from UPS and for the past three days it has shown an arrival scan in my town, indicated delivery that day, and then failed to appear. The first day was due to a natural disaster, the second day due to a late trailer, and the third due to “circumstances beyond our control”. Remember, each of these excuses followed a notification that it was already in the truck and out for delivery. Pure fabrication. I have great patience for technical difficulties, but very little for dishonesty and disingenuous information.
A friend had to send some documents from New York to Tblisi. Important notarized, stamped, sealed, that kind of thing.
Tblisi, for reference, is the capital of Georgia. Georgia, the country.
This important, time-sensitive document spent a few months in Atlanta, Georgia, courtesy of DHL.
Ordered a laptop from Dell 3 weeks ago - FedEx lost the package. Dell sales rep said "It happens all the time."
Shipped a laptop 2 weeks ago - UPS lost the package. UPS rep said, "Well, you shipped it on a Friday."
This week I have received two small Amazon orders that were shipped from the UK in mid-March. It's taken the joint efforts of the Royal Post and USPS to stretch a one-week expected wait to two months. At least they came.
I've got four packages out for delivery today via USPS. One has arrived.
