    Morons - I ordered something from Apple and I was wondering when it was going to get here - so I decide to track the package....

    [​IMG]

    I've had plenty of FedEx packages delivered here - what if this had been a priority package? Bleh

    Two days and they can't figure out where I live? Absolute morons.....

    So I call FedEx and they say it might be a new driver and he doesn't know how to get to your house - right. Lets not ask any one, that or he just didn't want to make the delivery.

    Pisses me off....

    D :mad:

    Maybe we should post our favorite stress relievers

    I'm only getting the FCP Studio - if this had been a new PowerMac I would have been even more upset. I'm going for a run, so its not really a problem - its just sad that people have to make excuses for not delivering the thing - whether they're new or they just don't want to drive a little out of the way. But that's their job and I don't have any sympathy for someone who's unwilling to do their job. I'll talk to the guy who delivers it tomorrow and see what he has to say - since its going to require a signature....

    Bleh,

    FedEx sux.

    That's all there is to it. I won't use them any more for ANY reason.

    Ah, running... a very nice stress reliever
    Probably should do a few miles myself under the circumstances :(
    However, I would die of a heart attack after a few steps

    So if you buy something from Apple, how are you going to have it delivered?

    Fortunately I have an Apple Store nearby for most of my recent purchases, including my iMac and iPod.

    Does Apple offer any other options?

    They sent my PowerBook UPS, but I wouldn't say it was an "option" so much as just who they picked. Sorry to hear about your FedEx problem, Mr. Anderson... I had never even heard of this kind of exception before!

    So I go and look online again and it seems that as of 8:07 PM this evening the package has left the FedEx location....wtf?

    I called and it seems that the first moron I talked to didn't relay the directions or my telephone number to the FedEx Location.... :eek: :(

    I can't wait to see what happens tomorrow....

    I hope you get your software. :(

    And FedEx really must stop hiring trained apes for drivers... :p

    and.. WHAT?! They can't use google maps to find you address? That's just laziness. I know FedEx has got computers to google.. PowerMacs get "lost" there all the time!

    Oh yeah,

    No apple store within 500 miles of where I live, so all my purchases have been delievered. Usually by UPS which I can't say I've had any better luck with than FedEx. I always come home to a note on my door that says they tried to deliver at (insert time btw 3pm and 5pm) and then the fool checks the box that says "will deliver tomorrow between 3pm and 5pm). If I wasn't home at that time on a Tues, what makes them think they'll have better luck on a Wed. I always end up telling them to just hold it, then I go pick it up at the UPS facility--there's usually ppl hanging around until 10pm. :cool:

    OMG, I thought you were serious for a second.

    Then, I was just like "wtf?"

    Dude, I'm cracking up over here, you rock!

    I thought accident on your doorstep meant like.. dropped your crystal chandelier on your doorstep as you were signing for it.. which I would not be surprised about.

    Ehehehehhehe.

    FU's happen. What seems to be missing are the details on the calls on or about the day that it should have arrived and what Fedex is doing about it.

    I will never use UPS, unless I can have it delivered to my work address.

    You know who I have had the best luck with?

    Freaking DHL, believe it or not.

    Funnily enough DHL have done the same to me. This is in the UK though. I just happened to check the tracking for an Amazon order, and it said "Attempted delivery, card left" 5 days earlier. Er, no? No card here. The guy couldn't be bothered to find our flat, which is a 20 second walk further than the houses on our street, so just said he's left a card :mad:

    If someone started up a delivery company that was actually good, they'd make a killing.

    UPS in our area is good, cause the UPS guy here is a dude, but I have heard bad things in other areas. Come on, someone make a reliable world(or even nation)wide delivery company and all will be well....

    I'm serious - DHL has always been spot on. I have never had a problem with them ever.

    I'm good friends with my UPS and FedEx people now, but they do eff up pretty regularly.

    What I love is how FedEx always delivers at like 7am when I'm trying to sleep. UPS always delivers to me after 4 and FedEx always delivers to me before 9... :confused:
