Angry Fedex

Okay, so Sahara Smoke uses Fedex and every experience I've had with them.... Frustrates me. My package was supposed to get here yesterday... Arrival date got pushed pack another day... Was supposed to come today... AND THEY PUSHED IT BACK AGAIN!!! It's not even in my city!! It's supposed to come tomorrow, and I'm not going to be home for 3 days, so now it's going to be sitting on my apt porch all weekend.. And it's one hundred dollars worth of shisha.. Not something I want sitting for all to see on my porch, for some of my sleazy neighbors to steal.. I purchase it at a time that works for my schedule, and Fedex ruins it.. I'm through with Fedex.

Fedex failed for my gf this week, they couldn't find our house, and claimed our street didn't exist. Idiots.

UPS did that to me. It was only the 30,000th time they've been to my house. I stare out the window, only to see a UPS driver sitting in my driveway. he looks at my door, turns his truck around and heads out. I run out to flag his stupid ass down and he stops, looks at me, and kept going. I went to UPS, furious as all hell and ended up seeing the driver that did it. I let that SOB have it. They have never done anything like that to me since.

Sorry to hear about these unfortunate shipping errors.. I've never once had problems with either Fedex or UPS, even when it's snowing hard, as it does a lot here in CO.

Yeah, and I'm scared it's going to get stolen or wet or something... And it's sort of a big order.. ugh.. I'll have to leave them a note to keep the package or something? I don't know what to do.. Maybe tell them to leave it at the apt office.

I think you can do that. Just give em a call and tell them to either wait to deliver it or you can probably pick it up at one of their facilities next week.

SS has other options besides fedex, it's just usually the fastest / cheapest. Now you're finding out why fed ex is cheaper. (Because they have crap employees!)

My fed ex guy is a dirt bag. I've had my SS packages show up, all crumpled up, looking like they have been tossed around. (I know the guy has thrown them onto the porch, I'v seen the skid marks the box has left on the wooden porch and once I HEARD it as it slid across the porch into my door!) That and they don't like to wrap the packages in plastic unless it's raining. Dude, it's florida... IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO FREAKING RAIN at some point during the day. It's not that hard to put the box in the obligatory plastic bag! Charge me .20 more and give me my peace of mind!

Glad I don't have the problems that you guys have.
In Norway the post office bring the package to your door, if your not home they leave a note in your mailbox that your package is ready to be picked up.
And, they handle it with care!

And, I feel sorry for you Jordan, sucks waiting for a package! My Americana should be in Norway today, so - just looking at the site tracking it!

Edit - When I hear the stories from Fedex employees I imagine the scene in Ace Venture: Pet Detective when Ace throws the package around, kicks it, and just drops it in the ground over and over!

I can't remember if its Fedex or UPS.. or both.. but they won't leave anything at the gate at my house. They could easily leave it in front of the gate.. or reach over the gate and set the package down.. but no. So then i run into the issue of having to leave the gate open for them. Which means i have to be VERY actively tracking my package and/or leave the dogs locked up in the house which is a huge pain in the butt.
But a lot of times there are "random" delays.. or they go without updating the tracking notices. It seems like USPS seems to do the best.

I know fedex's main headquarters in Memphis got slammed with the snow we had plus on their website they had a disclaimer saying that they were getting a lot of packages heading to haiti, and your delivery date might not be accurate to the back up. My package from john sat in nashville for 3 days. I finally got it 3 days after the estimated delivery date. But, at least I got it.

Man I ordered a Vortex from SSC on Tuesday. Yesterday, it said it left the Ellenburg(?), GA plan at 8am... but it still hasn't arrived here in Lexington or in KY in general. Where the hell can a package be after traveling for over 24 hours?

I just hope some dude forgot to scan it when it arrived in Lexington and it'll be here today. I'll be pissed if it doesn't.

I love FedEx. UPS never leaves my shit outside of my apartment where literally no one but myself lives. I can see how that would be annoying though I hate the UPS notes on my doors; it's like a Dear John letter when I get back from class.
