So I have the day off. I was expecting a Fed Ex package. I think Fed Ex sucks. My past experience has been very poor. There was the package that took more than 12 days to arrive. The rep claimed delivery had been attempted TWICE but I didn’t even get a door tag. I’ve also received “Sorry We Missed You” tags when I was in fact home. There was a package that wasn’t delivered and Fed Ex claimed that it was because the driver couldn’t obtain a signature. When I noted there was signature waiver, the rep then said, “Oh, well he thought it looked valuable so he didn’t want to leave it.”
The drivers never, ever ring the bell.
I don’t get it. I assume they have to eventually deliver the package. So what’s the point of the tags? Is it just because they’re having a busy day and don’t want to stop?
Today I heard the truck and looked out the window to see the guy writing out a tag next to the truck. He hadn’t come up the steps yet. He hadn’t rung the bell. He was just going to tag and run. So I opened the door, which forced him to actually get my package.
UPS rings the doorbell, even if there is signature waiver. My postal carrier rings the doorbell. Why not Fed Ex? Because they suck, that’s why.
