Default I hate Fedex

The one time I use them for shipping...


I come home from work and check the tracking on my hookah-hookah blend off package, it says it was delivered today... and Left at Front Door? Are you kidding me? In south philly? Not that the idiot who stole it has any idea what it is, but seriously. I'm so pissed off right now.

UPS has always left a note, saying they will come back the next day, or at least a note at all saying it was left with a neighbor or something..

And it's been raining all day. No one with a shred of common sense would think to leave a cardboard box out on someones doorstep in the rain.

UPS only leaves notes if it needs to be signed. ive had plenty of packages left outside in the rain by both fedex and ups. this is just shit luck on your part

Yup, usually if the vendor/seller writes that they need the buyer to confirm the package then they will leave a note and come back tomorrow or you can schedule a pick-up. If not, they just leave the package on the front step, regardless of how much the package is worth. Next time you get something shipped, have the vendor check off that they want the buyer to sign for the package.

Was this your entry delivered to them? If so... how do you know that it was stolen?

Kinda funny, if they left a note I have a feeling you would have started a thread bashing them saying you were pissed that they didnt just leave it at the door because now you gotta arrange for a redelivery etc etc. All delivery companied do their best, they cant please everyone. you leave it you get bashed, you dont leave it you get bashed, you leave it and it gets stolen you get bashed, you take it back to the warehouse and dont attempt a redelivery until the customer calls and you get bashed, you attempt redelivery and customer is at work you get bashed, you make customer pick up package at hub because you attempted delivery on 3 working days and customer is not home.........you guessed it, you get bashed. Its a no win situation for those guys, cut em some slack, they work 12-18 hours a day everyday.

Husky, do you really feel the need to bash someone based on where they live? Not everyone has much of a choice. People do what they can in life. Im sure quite a few of us would change where we live if we had the chance. I know i would.

To the OP, man sorry to hear about this. Sending some positive vibes your way.

How was I bashing him? He made it sound like it was outrageous to even think of leaving a package on a doorstep in south Philly. If its that bad then maybe you need to reasses your living situation. Look, i didnt bring his business here, he aired it out for the whole world to read. And he bashed Fed Ex, was it necessary to bash a company for doing their job? Chill out Dread, I didnt personally attack him.

Sucks man, at home they leave stuff on my side porch all the time and it isn't bothered, gotta love the burbs. Down school though they usually ask for a sig but I usually luck out and at least one of my roommates is home.

my fedex guy is the best, the one who comes for pickups every day, also, my delivery guy that drops stuff for me is pretty good too. however, when i watch reviews of packages getting delivered, whether by fedex or ups I cringe. the packages always look like they have been through a war.

It's not just that its south Philly, but the way the buildings are, is that there is the front of the house, and a set of stairs. There is no place of setting it where it is out of sight. It sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm not in a bad section of Philly at all, but people troll around, and something like that just out in the open, no matter what it is, they are gonna take it and try to sell it.

Like I said in my last post, there is no where to leave it that isn't out in the open. It's best to just leave a note saying it will be brought back the next business day... Monday. A day which I conveniently have off... ha. The UPS driver that dropped off my last delivery dropped it off with my neighbor. This time, no such luck.

I take back all that was said. I feel like a fool, but at 1am, my neighbor came by and said he had picked up the package off my stoop to keep it from getting stolen. Sorry FedEx!



But my Blend-Off creation smells wonderful, and I am very excited for the voting to begin because I really hope it makes it through the initial voting for you all to try.

BTW YOUR SIG IS AWESOME

How doth the little crocodile improve his shining tail. And pour the waters of the Nile, on every golden scale. How cheerfully he seems to grin, how neatly spreads his claws. And welcomes little fishes in, with gently smiling jaws.
