    Last time I used UPS (fwiw, the guy says he is afraid of Molly), I was sitting on my patio, enjoying a cigar, when out of nowhere, this package comes sailing over my wall, dam near hitting me in the head! AND IT WASNT EVEN MINE!

    I'm Thinking...Oh Yeah...An FJ
    It's all in my head at the moment...
    You're probably at the end of the line and he/she is not just making deliveries. You show up to make a delivery and the customer has a dozen packages to be picked up at the same time. Trust me, I do the heavy stuff for FedEx, It's so sweet when you have to leap-frog pallets just to arrange space so your deliveries don't get blocked in by your pick-ups.

    It's also fun when you show up at a business with 7500 lbs of free weights, (happened yesterday), you crack open the trailer door and the customer says....." How we gonna get that unloaded?" So a fifteen minute delivery that should of had a dock and fork-lift takes over 2 hours to off load. There is your late day reason.

    You should of arranged to pick it up at the center for your convenience. We hold freight all the time because we can't give a definite time. Tires, rims....hell some days there is enough stuff on that dock to build a truck.

    We do have a time sensitive service but I bet it'll cost you almost as much as the head unit did.

    Our stuff is to heavy to throw.

    Nice hat Chris ;)

    Yeah! Anytime he ever showed up, she just poked her head out the window with her head cocked, like "Do I know you?" look.

    I have a cousin who works for UPS, he always has the best stories to tell. One time when he was making deliveries, he had this huge package that kept getting in his way. He would step on it, kick around, he used it as table to eat his lunch and towards the end of his route he ends up in his neighborhood. Well he gets to the package and reads the address, gets to the house and then notices its his house, his address....his freakin package. The package was in rough shape, his GF let him hear it when he got home. Cracked me up when he told me this story.

    What was in the package, did it get damaged?
    I hope this will teach him a lesson to respect other people's property. :)
