UPS is teh suxx0r

Bleh.

UPS sucks. They take forever shipping things. And every day it's like... is it here? Is it here? Ding ding! Nope! You lose! Sucks to be you! Hah Hah!

Or sometimes it's a joke, a little piece of paper that says "We know you have a job, but we brought this by at the exact moment when you wouldn't be around today. Of course noone is here to sign for it, and you can't just sign this paper because the shipper wanted a living body that doesn't necessarily have to be you, to sign it. After all, the signature might be from, say, your dog, and our shipping agents are trained to watch you sign for something so they know it was human. Please don't present any form of ID because they do not require it. You can however come by our office to pick up your package, but you'll have to take off work because our hours are 2PM to 3PM every other thursday on odd months. If you come by our office during hours we are open, we'll make sure your package is sitting in a truck on the road, so it won't be available. We'll attempt to drop this package off again tomorrow at a random time, carefully chosen to insure your absence yet again. Thank you for shipping UPS."

I think I'm going to make a new rule that anything I buy/ship, gets shipped overnight with tracking #'s. Signature release waivers filed, etc. I'm really tired of this shit. If they don't offer overnight, they don't get my business. How much more simple can it be?

Something I ordered on ebay hasn't shown up yet. I ordered it last monday (the monday before last). I emailed the shipper over the weekend since he's in the same state I am, and I got a "We shipped it out last wednesday..." bullshit. Lots of negative feedback has been provided recently attesting to abysmal ship times. Yet 375 positive feedback makes the seller essentially invincible from such negative PR. I'm powerless to do anything but sit back and watch. No sense in me leaving negative feedback, it won't accomplish anything.

Of course, my collar still hasn't arrived.

And some other stuff I ordered hasn't arrived.

I am -beyond- done with normal shipping methods. I don't give a shit if it costs what the product cost to ship, my time and patience has a price and that price is far beyond what both probably cost together. In the business world, almost EVERYTHING is shipped overnight. There is a method to this madness...

Hm. They've actually left a fair number of packages at my door lately.

If I miss something I just have it re-routed to my work address the next day. They don't mind.

But yes, needing to go there and pick-up sucks.

At least their customer service phone # gets you through to a person eventually?

you know, i used to bitch about package delivery till i came to this place.
then your just happy to see it.
packages just dissapear. no cause, the guy delivering it thinks.. humm this must be nice, ill just take it. or when you get into customs, they hold things for ransom. "well, the declaired value on this package is 65 USD. but we will need at least 250USD in customs fees" thats if it gets that far. oh, your trying to bring in electronics? well we have to quarinteen your personal laptop for "viruses" for two weeks in the airport (i shit you not) even the DHL guy wont give up an envelope for less than 25USD. i had to pay 45USD just to get the tracking reciepts from DHL so i could tell where they were sending the package.
so as bad as it might seem, ide love soem good olde ups

You're lucky. I came home to other day to find UPS had left a $600 PDA sitting on the door step. I have to check the front porch every night before bed because the UPS driver might have snuck up and left a package sitting there while I was in the bathroom or something (It's happened before!). And they NEVER, EVER ring the doorbell. They occasionaly knock, but usually they rely on mental telepathy.
