Rest in Peace Friend...
I haven't shipped anything by FedEX Ground in a couple years, since the closest office is 100+ f'ing miles from here. But I needed to send a fender to another FSB member, and the Fed was cheaper than UPS by $20. I arranged to have their driver pick up the fender at work from the warehouse, where the same driver comes by every damn day. Monday, 2/27-couldn't find package sitting on the loading dock. The fender box is only 5 ft x 3 ft, and barely fit in the bed of my truck, but dude didn't pick it up. Tuesday, 2/28-sir, you need a bar code sticker on the box. It was printed off the internet, and taped to the same side as the big white address label. Wed-Fri, no driver shows up, I figure he took a few days leave after my last asschewin'. Moday, 3/6 I have to call FedEx again and tell them dude never picked up my fender sitting on the dock for seven freakin' days. It finally got picked up and arrived today, although I'm afraid of what condition it's in after my rampage. My sec calls him a "TURD", I called him "INEPT" being polite. Neither I nor anyone at work will use FDX GRD after this fiasco. Bite ME, Fawkers!!!:goodfinge
