FedEx Strikes Again!

I ordered a PowerEx MH-C9000 WizardOne Charger-Analyzer with 1-3 business day delivery. FedEx Tracking showed it as due for delivery on Monday. I checked the tracking this morning and was happy to see that it would be here today. WRONG!
Apparently, the driver decided at 3:08 this afternoon that the package that had been put on his truck at 8:25 this morning for delivery should go back to the depot. After all, it it didn't have to be delivered until Monday to be on schedule..

What service, huh?

No, it was their super-saver weekday-only we'll-deliver-it-if-and-when-we-feel-like-it plan.

The last package they delivered took 10 calendar days to get here from Phoenix. Only 1350 miles. 135 miles per day average which, I believe, is just about what the Pony Express was capable of.

"Package not due for delivery" - that's crazy!

I've had the same thing happen to me TWICE. No amount of complaining, wheedling, cajoling, pleading, or whining will get them to change it! I know one thing that will, though... DON'T USE THEM! I explained what happened to the merchants that shipped my items and they vowed not to use FedEx again. Sooner or later, they'll get the message.

Every shipping service has the occasional glitch. No system is perfect. If it was, we would not be complaining about sensor stains, freezing, mirror flops, weird exposures, and slow AF.

You think that is bad, try living anywhere but the US. Your deliver will be sometime between 8am and 5pm, but it is a residential address and I can't wait round all day just just in case, well get it delivered to your work, yeah right, I don't have a work like other people. Couriers should be forced to use local post office delivery if no one home.

Then again ordered some books from Amazon 1 March. Expected delivery 18 March, arrived 8 March 10 days early. Not all deliveries are a horror story.

Hmmm...FedEx here doesn't deliver on Mondays (for ground, anyway): Tues-Sat.
