When I was in Wales and heard the local, rural Welsh accent, a thought immediately popped to mind, "Huh... sooooo... do the locals in India speak with that accent because their native tongue is Hindi or Tamil? Or was it because the original colonial English teachers were Welsh?"Welsh it is
I used to have issues with the FedEx guy (and occasionally, USPS).Up until not too long ago, we had lots of problems with FedEx Ground and Home Delivery. Both in terms of reliability of delivery and condition of packages received. It's gotten much better in the past year or two.
They used to miss deliveries and then put in codes for "gate was locked", (there's no gate on our property or in the subdivision), "dangerous conditions", "high water", none of which applied. It got to the point where I'd call them and give them a ration.
The other day, the USPS failed to deliver a package I was home to receive. They put in a note online that said that it was "left at the post office at customer request". Really?
I feel your pain, Jo.
Back to gravel. Our worst offender is the neighbor across the way. If I could legally dispatch him, I would.
(Note to NSA / CIA / et al...I'm just kidding about the dispatching. It was humor. Get it? Humor. Now recall the drones and take the black helicopters away.)
Couple decades ago, I ordered a Carbon Fiber hood for a track car. One of only a few that had been imported to the US (shipping to order it directly from the company located in Japan would've been ridiculous).The FedEx guy is the worst. We have told him to slow down a couple times but he is just a jerk. One day when he was delivering a package I saw him walking on the other packages to get to ours out of the back. And my package was a case of wine which clearly had a this way up and he was just holding it sideways with one hand. That guy is just rude.
No. I dont like this at all.I had a UPS driver chuck a firstly rebuilt machine tool spindle out of the back of his truck onto the concrete. Probably weighed about 90 lb. I had to file the casting to get it to fit back into the machine tool. I filed. A precision machine tool spindle. To get it back. Into the casting. FFS
UPS felt the same thing. They didn't fault the driver, they faulted the shipper. The box was a reused 3D printer box and the shipping material was not that great.Was thinking the same...if it couldn't handle that, seems more of an inadequate packaging issue IMO.
