Peter: Like you, missing the same package more than once would irritate me very much. I wish I was your driver, as you and I would have a great working relationship once you complained to my boss and I understood the problem. Your packages would be discreetly delivered to your backdoor, or garage, or whatever you and I agreed on. Hopefully your driver will do this after he hears that there is a problem.
Scout1222: Sometimes, the really cool packages just have to go home with me. Sorry.
Harmonix: If there was a package that was for sure at our terminal, and didn’t get loaded on the delivery truck in the morning (honestly, that is very hard to do, as they only travel about 150 feet from semi-trailer to delivery vehicle), and IF you called our terminal inquiring about it, then yes, we would get it to you somehow. Obviously, we couldn’t do anything for you in California if the package is still loading in, say, Kansas City.
Thunder: Ground drivers, as well as the new Home Delivery drivers, are contractors. We own our own vehicles, pay for fuel, maintenance, etc.
Stuffy: I read your post. Yikes.
When you get a large collective of people anywhere, such as thousands of Fed Ex employees, you will invariably have a few halfwits. You’ve met two of them already, and I’m sorry.
Others: Thanks for the warm welcome. It’s all downhill from here.
