So I ordered myself a Yaesu VX-7RB. It’s quad band handheld amateur radio receiver. The price was right.
Well the company I ordered it from ships via UPS. You know, Shit Wrapped in Chiffon UPS.
When I checked the status of the package yesterday it was clearly marked “Expected end of business day”. Now I know what that is, I’ve asked UPS this question before. They told me 5PM to 7PM.
When I got home just before 6PM I see their famous little InfoNotice. Yeah UPS, fuck you and your InfoNotice.
So I log on to track the package and I see this:
Notice the highlighted section – they tried to deliver at 1:24PM. And today there was nobody home at 1:24PM.
I called UPS. I told them I know the truck is still out there, get it back here and deliver the fucking package. Sorry, can’t do that. Can we re-direct to my office, oh, there’ll be a charge for that.
If I ever order from this company again I’ll be sure to call it in and tell them don’t ship UPS, use USPS.
