FedEx Stinks!!!

I ordered my 12" PB last Wed. and paid extra for two day shipping. Apple sent me an email saying my power book shipped out Friday. I just called FedEx and it isn't even expected for delivery to my town till tomorrow (Wednesday) So much for 2 day shipping huh. Kind of a waste of money to pay for faster shipping fi FedEx doens't live up to the claims. Mostly I just want my PB though, and I want it NOW!

Sorry guys just had to vent a little.

The last time I bought something and had it shipped fedex, nobody was home when the fedex person stopped by. Naturally, I didn't find out until I got home from work. Then I had to drive to their distribution point to get my package (about 35 miles from my house). Oh, and I had to be there by 6:00, because that's what time the shipping point closed

More power to ya, if your home to get your package.

Alot of times the 2 day shipping policy is meant as 2 business days. specifically with fedex. If the packaged shipped on friday then i could have been late friday at which point it would just sit in the warehouse til monday. yeah it sucks but it does say it in the fine print.

Anylize your situation for a minute.

Apple shipped it out on Friday not Fed Ex.
Saturdays nothing happnes unless you pay for it.
Monday begins the 2 day process.
It should be delivered Wednesday.


Wow, sounds like Fed Ex did exactly what you paid for. Why the bashing then? Oh? You didn't really think about the way things work.

Thanks ijon for correcting this guy. Fedx is usually terrific. just this past week i placed a order, was able to follow my order the whole way and it arrived on the day it was supposed to 2nd day fedx. I noticed not one word from this kid about his location nor where it was shipped, any snow storms? etc. I think the kid has shown himself to be a _ _ _ _!

yep i agree. if conditions are right i have followed many orders online and they have always been here when they said they would. on another topic, you are one of few who actually quote me and actually spell my name "ijon". most do it "ijohn" and it drives me crazy.

Do you guys have any common sense, or a sense of humor. You are dicks because you are dicks. Hmmm... ok I'm an ******* because I want my powerbook, right... yeah, how about you go jump off a cliff. Did I track my shipment online? Yep I did. Did it ship friday? Yep it did. I can tell you it shipped from Taiwan on friday. Worked it's way around through Alaska. Sat in indiana today, all day. Was there a snow storm there? Maybe, I'm not really sure. Did I harshly trahs on FedEx increadibly? No, not really. Just made a little post in the not really related to anything area just so I could share my eagerness to get my PB. How about you guys stop taking things too damn serious.

You want "this kid's" information, shipped from Apple to Vermont, it's still two day shipping you pretentious prick.

The small print can get you a lot of the time. Basically, if you asked for the Powerbook on Tuesday, you would receive it two days later.

Right now, I have this to say:

"Please insert thread here:

Thank you, ma'am. Have a nice day."

its not the fact that you are anxious. we all know you are anxious. its that you said fed ex didnt live up their claims and you spend extra money. then this other guy turner around and simply said you were wrong. then you started calling people dicks. i thought most people know that shipping companies work during the business week, not the weekend. but if you didnt know now you do. dont burst up in peoples face. you were wrong and he was right. end of story. enjoy your powerbook. i know i have.

If you really feel that you paid for something you didn't receive, as far as the shipping goes, call Apple. At least, you'll get an explanation of how FedEx's shipping works from Taiwan. Maybe they'll be willing to listen to you and do something about it.

It's unforunate that you've shown your backside to us from the start. Don't expect too many people to be responsive to you in the future. They'll be afraid of the backlash if they answer in a way you don't like, or perhaps, just sick of the temper tantrums.

Actually, FedEx does deliver on Sat without paying extra for it; trust me, because I have received a lot of things on Sat from FedEx!!!

But I do concur with leprechaunG4, about FedEx sucx, because they have screwed up a lot of my orders, i.e.: I ordered a semiconductor on Monday from Southern California, to be shipped to Las Vegas, it took 10 days to travel 248 miles!!! This happened three times!!
So needless to say that I try to stay away from FedEx when buy CPU?s!!!!

The thing that hasn't been said here and I know for a fact from talking to Apple when I was waiting for my computer is that when Apple says it ships doesn't mean it has actually been picked up.

It just means that the pickup request has been made. This request could happen at 9pm on a friday well afte any actuall pickup time but the order status will still say shipped because it's all done electronically.

This is actually how a number of mail order companies work.

I've never been inside a FedEx warehouse, but for a few months one summer I worked for UPS... let me just say, I will NEVER ship via UPS again. It was a time when the Graphites were still the top of the line.. and I'd handle them on occassion. I was always so envious that I handled them well, and took care.. but I saw a lot of stuff getting thrown around and dropped and kicked. My FedEx stuff usually comes out in better shape, so I have no complaints.

You say FedEx sucks, but they're always done the job for me.. they are a little more expensive though.
I've never ordered anything from Apple, is FedEx the only option or USPS available also?

By the way.. if it shipped on Friday.. did you really expect to have it on Monday? I mean come on... If it shipped on Thursdasy, would you have complained that people were observing the Sabbath?

Yea, ask Duke about his FedEX experience. I know so many people who have had problems with them, but only when they ship Apple Computers. Man, I wonder if it is a conspiracy?
