Does anybody know how I can assure that FedEx deliver and not UPS? Are certain suppliers guaranteed to ship FedEx rather than UPS?

I know this question probably sounds ridiculous to some of you...but the truth is that my UPS guy (and his sister...long story) have a restraining order against me due to a minor incident/misunderstanding on 5s release day last year.

I cannot come within 100 feet of him, and if he tries to deliver to my house, unknowingly, I could get arrested, and worse, lose my job at Arby's.

Somebody please help me here, I couldn't sleep for 6 days prior to the Keynote & i've be sweating profusely and suffering heart palpitations ever since worrying about the delivery of my delicious IBaby (5.5 of course, FTW!!!)

Yes I will help, send me the cash to buy the phone. I will preorder then overnight it to you by FedEx.

It might be a little bit late but I would suggest you shipping the phone to your friend's address. AT&T only allows shipping phone to AT&T billing address (even if you are making the purchase at apple.com) so make sure to change your AT&T billing address first. However it may take 24 or 48 hours (I can't remember) before the change becomes effective.

ARBY'S? Seriously? There's a billion food chains that you can use your skills, experience and talents. How difficult is it to pour oil in a fryer and use a spatula to flip a burger when all I see are timers ringing from everywhere, which by the way, on very rare occasions do I visit these joints, unless I'm ordering a soda "to go".

It's not that difficult, but burger flipping isn't a skill you learn at Arby's. Probably he works there because he isn't co-ordinated enough to flip burgers.

How cruel of you to mock him for that. ;)
