McPostAlot: We are NOT Pleased...

Jeff and I have started getting wedding presents from our various registries. (Yay for excited parents!) Thus, packages are arriving on a fairly regular basis. Thus, I am not surprised when I see the UPS truck arrive. Since I am working, I half watch him out the window to see if he carries one of those things that I need to sign. He doesn't. So, I don't go downstairs. I am surprised to hear a thump from downstairs and see the UPS dude running back to his truck and peel out. I didn't even know those trucks could peel out.

So, I go downstairs and open the front door. The package is there and is covered in "Fragile" tape and big red words saying "Do not sign for if seal is broken"... which it was. In fact, when I picked up the package, part of whatever it is had punched through the cardboard box. So, I brought it inside and opened it. Jeff and I are big on not opening any of the wedding gifts until after the wedding* but this was an exception. I needed to see if it had broken. Fortunately, it had not and all is well but I am NOT pleased with the UPS guy right now.

* This doesn't stop me from looking at the registries to see what has already been bought. I'm curious and unrepentant.

You should let that guys supervisor know!

There should be a fairly clear paperwork chain leading to the delivery person -- UPS will know, even if they won't tell you the identity.

Yeah, our UPS and FedEx delivery-critters do similar even when the items are intact. Those trucks do have a surprising amount of get-up-and-go, don't they?

I think it was UPS that delivered the empty package of Magic cards from Jeff. The one that was neatly torn down one side in such a way that no one could ever mistake it for an intact envelope.

Did he ever get that resolved?

I did the same thing a few weeks ago before my wedding to jasonbeast

Nothing wrong with that at all :)

and yeah. UPS can suck. I've had a TON of bad UPS experiences.

I think that's how UPS works here. I can be sitting in the living room, which is immediately inside the front door, with a big picture window out front, see the guy coming up the path, and still not make it to the door before he's sprinted off. If you proceed to take the item in to your local UPS store and bitch, they basically act like it's something that happens all the time and there's an off-the-record script for dealing with people that come in to complain about it. Which might be helpful if something DOES break.

Looking up the registry to see what's been gotten is the best part!
