    Death to FedEx!

    I cant stress this enough, but I really really really really hate fedex. They always are late every time I get something shipped to me. I had to send my mb back to NewEgg to get it repaired after it somehow got fried for no apparent reason. Well they werent the fastest at turning it around and sending it back but thats not the point. They only use FedEx shipping, and this is horrible. I really couldnt live without a computer waiting for standard ground delievery so i paid to have it sent to me 2nd day. Well it shiped out thursday morning around 10 a.m cali time to me here in Ga. It made it to illinois by the end of the day, and when i checked again on sunday it had made it to Ga, about an hour south of me, so im thinking wow they are actually going to deliever something on time to me. Well all monday passes and the stupid thing is still sitting at the FedEx ramp and im like what the F***! I call FedEx and they are like oh were sorry for any inconvinences this may have caused, i was like what the hell, i just paid to get this back to me fast and now you forgot to shipt it out today! There just is no excuse for that and when I asked for a refund of my shipping charges they told me that I must be crazy. This is the last time im going to get anything from a place that only ships fedex even if they are a good company. I really wish retailers would yell at the damn delievery services and get them to do what they say they would b/c this is absolute bs!

    I know what you mean. I just paid $225 for my A+ exam and they wont send me my results paper. Their printer wasnt working so they wrote down my address on a sticky-note. I am gonna B*tch at them tomarrow. They owe me and my friend Results, but they think they are so great that they can just do whatever they want... which isnt generally a good idea to do to people when they spent alot of money, I'm not sure what I'll do yet, but if they dont give me my results I will think of any way possible to cause them trouble...any way at all. They will probably end up getting security to remove me from the building. I know that I wont get a refund, and they will use BS answers like: "What? Im just a secretary who is..." yes! susposed to mail results!

    Yesterday I needed to send some PCB's to our remote site. Only one company actually goes there. Paid for overnight, was told that it would arrive on a certain plane in the morning. So my crew is there looking for it at the other airport.

    No sign of it, no record of con# on the net.

    Turns out they took it off the plane!

    Will arrive late this afternoon. Could have put it on a truck for less than half price and got it there 6 hours earlier. No refund as I only paid $40 extra for overnight not next plane $120.

    Fingers crossed they don't break this one, or loose it for three days (as they have before) because I was mad at them.

    Mail a cassete deck with a tape that plays repeating subliminal messages. (Is there a sound emission limit for a package?)

    Thats a good idea. Record a tape where you are cussing(sp) fedex. Put it in a tape player and fedex it to your self, while the tape is playing. Then they will know what you think about them.

    Oh, I know. Fedex sucks so much. I just had a
    game delivered (Morrowind from Ebgames.com).
    EB usually uses UPS to ship my items, and UPS is
    always on time. But, this time they chose to
    use FedEx. I chose 2-day air, but the item took
    4 days to get to my house.

    Not to mention their tracking system sucks. UPS
    is almost always right with their delivery time.
    When I tried to track my package on FedEx's website,
    they didn't even list a scheduled delivery time;
    they just listed where the package was. That
    does me no good.

    Stupid FedEx. Cast Away is a cool movie, though.
