UPS Mishandled My Package

Postby kimchi_chigae » Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:13 pm

UPS has been trying to deliver a parcel to my place for a whole week. If their job wasn't to deliver, I'd understand them having trouble getting in the building, but they are UPS for crying out loud, their only job is to deliver. I have called them every single day this week asking what is going on and each day is a different excuse, the driver can't get in the building, my name isn't on the directory (lol), there was no one home (my gf's school is on strike, she's hardly not home). I can't remember the last time I needed a key to get in my building, there are so many people in this place that the front door is constantly open. I gave them the buzzer number, but apparently they can't figure out how it works. !+) :-[

At least they aren't leaving the package outside my door. I remember last time they did that, I almost had a heart attack. Where I come from, if you leave anything at someone's doorstep, odds are you will make someone very happy, just not the receiver.

Don't they have to fly it in and trek the rest of the way on sleigh dogs to get to your house? Cut them some slack... }:-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Can you go to the depot and get it yourself?

I can, but it's -20 C these days. O:-)

And it's on the other side of town. I'm trying to arrange for them to send the package downtown, but apparently I need to request it at the UPS store first, which can only be done on Monday. Best case scenario, I'll get it Tuesday. X-I

Did they leave a note saying they attempted to deliver the package? On that note (I had the unfortunate experience of working at UPS during the frantic 2 weeks before Christmas) it should list the times they will be back the next day.
